There has to be a way to get air intake back there. Running oil and coolant to the front of the car adds unnecessary weight. And when the boosted versions come out, they will need intercooling as...

I have driven 996 and 997 a lot, and co-drove a GT3 for a series back in 2010. The 996 and 997 just have poor front-end dynamics to me. The bobbing into and out of corners just drives me nuts. It's...

The bottom line is that someone who drives a Ferrari 488, Huracan, Aventador, high-end Aston is not going to be interested in a Corvette, period - at least not as their street car. It is just not...

Thanks Toolhoarder. Two things seems pretty obvious from these latest pics: the quarterwindows will curve inward to create an intake duct (this is a surprise), and it is clear that the large side...

Active aero is the on-track game-changer of today and the two upper model Corvettes will need to have it to remain competitive and relevant among the exoticar crowd. Anyone doubting the substantial...

Hey man just a thought here: if you bought this from a dealership, then they are liable for selling you a vehicle that not only fails to meet CA emissions, but actually all 50 states. Furthermore,...

The Contis will do much better in cold and wet weather than the MPSS. Of course, you give up some dry performance. Wear is also better if that matters. That said, the Conti is still a summer tire.

Looks absolutely phenomenal. I am especially glad they got rid of the plastic tack-on bits and did a proper front fender, and the wings are the aero this car reallly needed, plus they just look...

Super-lame of GM to charge for what should be a complementary upgrade. I suppose they will start charging for firmware upgrades to other systems on the car as well. Good lord.

For $350, they'd...

Wow. They even have real front fenders instead of plastic bits tacked on. And finally, proper aero. Awesome! :thumbs:

That is the entire issue with the Z06 aero. The use of a spoiler instead of a wing is exacting a huge drag toll on the car. Sean had referenced earlier the drag figures for the Z06 stating they are...

The Viper makes the same power as the Z06 but has 3 advantages over it: (1) it is NA (2) it is a bit lighter (3) the aero is significantly better with respect to induced drag. No surprise as to the...

The the C7 Z most likey could not match the ZR1's time, so they did not and will not publish it. What was learned on the Z06 will be applied to the new ZR1.

Well I totally disagree. We can't have opinions on which one is better now? More PC crap. Nonsense.

I say the A8 is the better performance transmission, and is a hell of a lot of fun as well. I...
