DCT, but yes, essentially an "auto". It's certainly making it hard for me, as I love and enjoy driving a manual. I've been planning on a C8, but just not sure I can give up the manual. I'll still...

It's not so much that Sport now feels like Tour used to as much as before the upgrade there really wasn't much difference between Tour & Sport. The handling in Sport feels the same, but they've...

C7Z has a crap load of drag, especially the Z07 and level III aero package cars. Plus they have significantly more frontal area than a C4, and a lot of that is open to direct air through the...

Yes, on Z51 cars the update is for Tour and Sport, not track mode. Tour is significantly more compliant than before the update, with Sport mode now feeling closer to what Tour was before the update....

One more vote for it making a very noticeable difference. Just had my 2015 Z51 done. Tour is much more comfortable, which is very important to me as this is a daily driver. Not floaty, although I...

On my C6 GS (2013), I switched between Tour/Sport fairly often and loved the mag ride. On my 15 C7 Z51, not so much. Anything more than Tour is too stiff for the street unless I'm really pushing it...

If you get a chance, check out the "Three Sisters" aka "Twisted Sisters" near Kerrville. Really fun run, especially if you go during the week and avoid all the bikers.

Also, you'll have no issue trying to hit reverse instead of 6th downshifting from 7th, the opposite is actually the case in that I typically find myself downshifting to 4th and missing 6th unless I...

Where the hell do you live that you're actually worried about getting the top slashed. I've parked convertibles I've owned in downtown Dallas and not worried about it. Honestly, you're more likely...

It’s a low slung sports car with bolstered seats, it’s certainly harder to get in and out of than family sedan, but it’s not horrible. You want hard to get in/out of, that’s my 91 C4 ZR-1. I...

I've daily driven C4, C5, C6 and C7 Vettes, the C7 is definitely best of them all as a daily driver (although the C6 wasn't bad either). I had a period where I had other cars for daily drivers (when...

Shelby wheels are on!

Well I finally got off my lazy ass and put on the Shelby wheels I picked up last year (while the car was at Pete's getting the 391 built). They look really good! Now I just need to replace the 10...

What you experienced is true of most modern high performance cars. Flooring a C7 in 2nd will quickly exceed most speed limits, and doing it in 3rd will quickly take you into "go directly to jail"...

I'm in Dallas as well, and my Z51 is a daily driver, so yes, driven it multiple times under 40 degrees. Of course it's in the garage so typically the tires are around 40-50 even when it's been in...

Just got back from doing some back road driving in my new (to me) 15 Z51 M7 (w/ mag ride and comp seats). Over the same roads that I've driven my 13 GS with mag ride over previously, the...

Funny thing is, you can fit 17x11 wheels with 315s under the stock C4 rear without needing either the ZR-1 fenders or the stick on GS pieces. Did this on my 92 base car years ago and the wheels...
