And both cars sell (or sold) in pathetic numbers as opposed to today's Z06. The C6 Z was not a sales smash by any stretch. Sure the first couple of years it sold well, but once the "Gotta have...

Quick note: GM's been on a 2-week summer vacation, so this question has to wait. We should see an answer out of Tadge in the coming weeks when he gets back into the office. Stand by.

A poorly veiled shot at me. I recommend you learn more about the PTM before commenting on it's efficacy. PTM isn't a nanny, as I've said multiple times (to the point of being a broken...

We're actually not talking about those rings. We're specifically talking about the ducting that comes with the ZR1; that car doesn't come with the cooling rings.

That's somewhat true. Summit is 2 miles and 10 turns. Utilizing the pure grunt of the car is going to require coming out of Turns 2, 9, and 10 faster. In all 3 of those cases, it's a matter of...

I did my LT4 and it was an awesome experience. It is a lot of money, all things considered. But, IMHO, it was worth it. I'd happily opt up for it again were I ordering a ZR1.
