If you want to make the swap and get all the additional cooling bits I expect that is going to be a big job. Others have already noted the front clip and fenders. The fender liners are different...

The main thing I noticed with the DSC controller was that the car was more stable under braking and in fast transitions. It does seem like the ZR1 is going to need some tweaks to the tune to adjust...

Finally broke my Z06 PB and in to the 1:14's. This was a 1:14.9 but the data shows a theoretical 1:14.6 between the two fast laps that outing. I was overdriving the car a bit that outing so it's...

The wing is functional - even for waxers

OEM Cup 2 tires and carbon ceramic brakes. I'm bringing a set of Pirelli scrubs along though.
