You can really hear the super charger whine. Pretty crazy!

Supercharger sounds great. The shifts are nice and quick (auto or hopefully dual-clutch).

Sounds like the A8. Shift extensions too far for the A10.

secondly I cast it to my tv and I noticed the front fenders DO NOT cover the rear of the front tire as originally thought which means this one will also sandblast the quarter panels. Gm unreal.

SC sounds great much louder than current 1.7L.

but the could be sound insulation removed etc (that's the skeptic in me).

Front end will be crazy looking. That rear wing I pray is for a Z07 type option because it's ridiculous for someone to drive around with that on their car unless to a race or show.

There's nothing more intoxicating than hearing the American V8 ripping through the European Countryside....

Hard to tell what the real story is yet. An 1LE type exhaust? 50 degrees isn't going to find the sweet spot of the tires. The Shifting is not full out. Interestingly, the 1LE got a M6;

Respectfully disagree. Listening to the car wind out through what I presume to be 2 3 4 or 3 4 5 out of sight. I know my car and length of gears. Listen to the ZL1 A10 run through them. It's non stop shifting. I believe it was full out they sounded like wot shifts to me.

It does sound louder than the Z28 I added from there, but, the track wasn't as narrow, and the VID wasn't from as close. The A8 though!? It pulling a big wing even if kept cool seems like a real bummer to me! And 50 degrees full out on Michelin's certainly isn't optimum. I thought they designed them for a nominal 70 degrees?
Anyway, like Skank said a bigger SC is certainly on the table!

^^^ I hope they go more all out then I think and do a DCT. Also found a nice link, it wasn't real warm out (great for the engine though) but track temps got over 70 and that should be fine to get some real good lap times. Isn't the bash in like 2 weeks? I smell a video and reveal coming.

Yeah, rain and early season makes the track green. But, they aren't playing this time. This is not Really a street car we're looking at. That's fine!

The answer is probably yeah, but, not by itself. CF$ fenders I would guess, coolers$....

And those angled exhausts were dumping right towards the mic here!

Would likely need the fenders as well, wouldn't be surprised if there may be some clearance issues on the backside of the bumper too.

Can't tell if I like the front end or not. Definitely aggressive

Looks like it might have Spats again

Interesting to see the stage 2 winglets, front splitter looks quite a bit larger, but could just be the angle

I wonder if the big silly wing and small wing are simple bolt ons for race day

Default Again! It certainly could be! ;)

The front is handled by raising the car, and it isn't super extended probably in that light! A benefit of the new nostrils, probably I say.
I can't imagine they upholstered over those wing mountings on a track car!

Why the 90 degree turn in the pipes?

They were aimed away at Laguna Seca. The guy who brought the good VID in now said the Vette's were too loud. I wonder about the significance of that since they're running, obviously.
