It’s wrong to consider one variable in isolation like the heat exchanger. It’s degradation will be a contributor but you have to consider all the other factors as well. The car loosens up as it wears...

Tadge is said to be pleased with the Ring time but he must feel owners would not be or he would have released it. It speaks to everything about the car and culture at GM. They're satisfied building...

I said Shelby because the car that sells the most stands to reason will sell the most magazines, but I could be wrong about how many they sell maybe the z06 or Cadillac instead.

I deleted my remark. That video did not look like much of a race, or the losing z06 driver either had a problem or can't drive.
