I was actually responding to numerous comments in this thread about the wing. Thought it might be overkill to quote them all.

I wouldn't count on that, only because they need plenty to differentiate the two cars.

There is this corvette zr1 walk around video by some doug guy who cleary said tht in the event when he talk to the corvette dudes
​​​He was told tht the zr1 would weight 3560 pounds.
Might as well search it on YouTube
or maybe 3560 is dry weight?

Others have said that source lacks credibility!

Nice headline, but subscribers get a nice C&D cover of the back of the car, it was really important for me to see those quad rear pipes - NOT.

It should be a fantastic car. It will be interesting to see the real weight as the C&D article indicated the SC and all the coolers added 140# to the front of the car, hard to see 60# net gain.

Somewhat....

But the engine is basically a reinforced Hellcat engine with a larger supercharger.....and mine stickered at $89,400.... not 140K

And I still have my C7 Z06 which I love.....I can wait.

Will for sure be a challenging experience looking at 3'10" at the following video...
