A great many valuable threads are ruined by Glenn.
Wait until he starts regularly sh*tting in the C8 forums and ruining those threads.

Besides, I told you, clear, legible English or I will not respond......
I understand!
I hope the Motor Trend Best Drivers Car next month on here works for you better. Most of your analysis will be appreciated. I'll pm you!



Sorry I Shouldn't have posted that SA test here!

How he's gotten away with posting 'as anything valid' when he's probably never even driven a corvette... let alone one with more than 500HP...

What JG2 will (unfortunately) never learn... is just because you read it on the internet... doesn't mean it's true... many of us who 'track cars'... debunk the mag tests and even manufacturer claims.

I've tried to stay out of this one... and frankly... I try to just not reply to JG2 threads... at somepoint the mods have got to get this taken care of... 6,300 posts of pure nonsense...

Best Regards,
Dave
Your car should do better elsewhere, and don't blame the messenger.
My write-up was pretty good then I see!


Sorry it didn't float your boat!

It's like the McLaren is running Corsas because McLaren Engineer's thought it would do better with something else. Who knows how it would drift with a R rated tire.

It won't be until (if and when) we get those ME chassis in a Z51 form that we will be armed indisputably.
The bandaids just confuse the issues.

That being said the ZR1 obvious cheap tire choice is that bang for the buck Corvette give me. The same kind of give me the C5 had in respects to that era +$130K GT2.
The exotics are supposed to be perfect! Your 7:12 Factory Nurbugring time vs the SA Z06 +1.2s was on these same tires!?

I also didn't even look at that whole video before I pasted it here, only the winner. The guys reported on it!
Incomprehensible! Please read back to get Your state of mind.
