Not sure who the target audience was for that piece. Not a typical CF member, at any rate.

I utterly detest article formats such as these. Picture, read a caption, click the button..Picture, read a caption, click the button... I see these formats and say, NOPE, click the close window button.

Because every click registers as a statistic that translates to dollars. What's more impressive, that the site gets "50,000" interactions, or "250,000" interactions per article? When in reality it's only been seen 50,000 times?

Standard operating procedure for said "curated" content.

More useless drivel from an "Editor" who most likely doesn't own a Vette and has never tracked any car.

Excuse me?!? One statement - "Only turn the wheel as much as you need to make a corner." - is indeed groundbreaking. I never knew that.

I was unaware of the existence of a low-power Corvette.

Default TC- (Traction Control)

Don't assume TC feature means your rear wheels won't spin on acceleration. ..... (ask me how I know.....)
