The entire "My Corvette Is Rare" comment is totally overdone. The truth is, unless it's a performance option, no one cares about whatever option makes anyone's Corvette rare, especially paint...

First World Problem. The fact that you have the data and are willing to "send it to Betty" so she can send you back a letter saying your car is unique strikes me as ludicrous in the extreme. Given...

Seems to me the only clear and obvious advantage for the new 0W40 is to avoid oil switching for those who do both street and track. Yes, I hear Patman and Foosh and Tadge, and yes, I concede that...

Many on the forum are strongly opposed to ethanol in gas, but there is no performance-based reason to avoid it in a modern car. Yes, there is a very small loss in mileage (2 mpg max), but the extra...

Just because you don't understand it, doesn't mean we don't. That's why I said "virtually zero". It may add 1 lb or 2 of down force at 100+ mph. But so does holding your shit in before you go on...

If it uses OE attachment points and only takes 20 min to install for the first time, it's a safe bet that it's not doing much. Any diffuser that provides meaningful downforce would rip the rear...

I must have missed the threads where posters are ranting about too much power. What's best; 455, 460, 650, 755 HP, no absolute answer? Like so many things, totally up to individual preference....

" C7s Aren't Selling"

it's winter, and the 2019 is the sixth year for the C7.... so typical for the situation.
Who came up with this breaking story... MSNBC? Are the Russians to blame ?

I'd have a conversation with the General Manager or if a smaller dealership the owner. No demands, no drama, just an FYI to see if that's a dealership policy.... shut up at that point and listen.

Thats not true. If you do a search you will find that there is a forum for litterally every car made. And regardless what anyone thinks, it is just a car.

Unrealistic Expectations

You won't get any worse tire wear with it lowered on stock bolts than you would if it were at the stock ride height. The only way lowering it will make the tire wear worse is if you're alignment is...

Yes, if it's raining, and I pull into the garage, there are plenty of puddles. :lol:
