Technically, a transaxle is a single "box" that houses the transmission and differential together. C5-C7 do not...

The article in Road & Track pretty much nails it, but what's most amusing are there are still folks here that believe they know more than the Chief Engineer does. Seriously: it's laughable. This...

Remember that transmissions don't care about HP. They care about input torque. Finding a DCT that A)fits, B)is affordable, and C)can withstand the input torque is basically impossible; which is why...

Car and Driver published some of the best photos of the entire event, IMHO. And yes, two cheek coolers running to the back of the car.

You understand why those MUCH LARGER screens are curved, right? Because they're ... oh... I dunno... MUCH LARGER?! I also don't know how many of those are also touch screen displays, either; at...

Neither Kerbeck nor any other dealer will have a "truck load of the new model" Corvette at Carlisle this year. The new car will be there: in the GM tent. Same as it was when the C7 was introduced. ...

Well then don't throw easy chum out into the water like that.



Um... huh?

By "efficiency" you mean specific output, which technically isn't engine efficiency. It's: specific output. :-) And you're correct in that outside of our country, specific output is far more...

And why is that?

You literally just said nothing of any substance. You're free to just go away, any time you'd like. Really. I think your village is missing you.

In Joe-the-Troll's case, he's actually 100% wrong. It's not opinion in this case. Were GM to follow Joe's idiotic statement, we wouldn't have had the C4, the C5, the C6, the C7, or the new C8. The...

The word "ignorant" in my post isn't used in a pejorative manner; rather as a statement meaning: "not knowing something". There are, unfortunately, a number of fairly ignorant folks here on CF when...

I don't know how well the base (read as: non-Z51) C8 will do. I'll bet money that the Z51 car will be pretty damned close to the Z07-equipped C7 Z06. It may not beat the Z06, but it'll be nipping...

The engine's placement doesn't come into play with regards to collision safety. The chassis and its corresponding impact structure does. None of that will change.

It's called "everyone knows a new model is coming". This is nothing new and it happens at the end of every, single generation. Stop looking for meaning where there isn't any.
