I definitely agree with them on the off throttle oversteer. There's a section in the carousel at Summit Point where you lift a little to give the front end some bite. In the 720S even the slightest...

Thanks Doc. I really appreciate your input as an owner that has also tracked both. The owner of the 720S asked me to drive to see if I also felt the twitchiness. It could just be a function of...

Average Guy Review: ZR1 vs 720S

Sometimes you have a good day at the track and sometimes you have an awesome day. A friend of mine and fellow drivers club member brought his new McLaren 720S out to play at Summit Point. Not only...

I'm not sure why you're beating up on Foosh but I'll try to give you a short version of what is in the very long threads on the DSC controller. The big thing that makes the DSC controller better is...

Check the A&RR section. I'm pretty sure there were reported cases with the C6.

The difference is that Mr and Mrs clueless aren't running aggressive track oriented pads. These systems are very complex and are tuned to certain expectations for pad and tire mu.

I don't truly daily drive my ZR1 but I do drive to work semi-regularly. I've had the same set of AP Racing brakes on my 2015 Z06, 2017 Z06, and 2019 ZR1 and with the DS 2500 pads the fronts don't...

My ZR1 went through 16.7 gallons in 32 minutes at Summit Point. It's an 18.5 gallon tank but I wouldn't be comfortable pushing past 30 minutes given that the fuel gauge is entirely unreliable on...

Serious question, what would you change in the ZR1 to make the interior more befitting a car in this price range? Mine has alcantara center console, dash, door rests, partial door panels, A-pillars,...

How much track time do you have on the MPSS ZP? I don't run them often because used slicks are faster and cheaper but they're really not a bad track tire, especially for a novice/intermediate...

The 991 GT3 isn't even close to the ZR1 on track. Need me to go dig up some video to prove it? I could easily run them down in the Z06.

The 18" wheels (Finspeed front, CCW rear) with Pirelli scrubs were 55 lbs lighter than the OEM ZR1 wheels with Cup 2 tires. The Forgeline 18"s I have might even be a tad lighter.

Awesome, thanks for doing that. I predicted that 1ZR vs 3ZR would be about 30-35 lb delta. Looks like it's right in there at 32 lbs.

So here are the weights I know of relative to the ZR1.
