I did my stitching in yellow. Took about 90 minutes. Simple and it looks great.

Wow, looks great. Thank you for the response and pictures. I just put my order in for a racing yellow Z06 and I wanted to get the yellow stitching but I would have to get the 3lz not the 2lz package which sucks but this is a much cheaper alternative.

In other words, I only buy yellow. Saw the Racing Yellow on a 2016 C7Z and was extremely disappointed. No way was I going to buy a Racing Yellow car.

I feel it's terrible. It's pale/pastel and faded/washed out. In MY opinion it's really bad. Looks like an old washed out and faded Mustang yellow. There is no POP to it. Looks slightly better in the sun but even then it's pale and sucks.

It really depressed as I just loved the prior yellows and would own no other color. I ordered a 2017 C7Z Torch Red. Not what I wanted but I knew I'd regret a Racing Yellow every time I looked at it. Hell, even the Corvette Race team doesn't run the Racing Yellow on the C7R's. They stuck with VY.

I can't believe they would choose this shade of yellow. Atrocious.

PLEASE note I'm not trying to start a color fight I'm just sharing MY thoughts. Really, really sucks.

ALL of my Vettes have been Black, but I(and the wife) really started to like the VY in the last couple of years. Ever since we saw the first C7 Z06 at Petit Le Mans in '15. I planned to get the new C8 ZR1 in Yellow, but NOT if it's CRY(which is what I did when they chose to change, cry) The VY just friggin' POPS!
What the hell are they thinking?

Never been a fan of any yellow car. But for some reason the velocity yellow just begs to be not ignored or marveled running down the road or just plain parked in a garage or any place.

My two best friends.




2 brothers from different mothers?

My Corvette Racing Yellow with black GS stripe and grey hash marks. The grey hashes actually look black in the sun and grey in the shade.

Default CRY vs. VY

CRY is nice color, but the original Velocity Yellow is much more attractive with black.
