I would hardly call it "old skool". The upcoming Ford Shelby GT500 went back to a cross plane crank.

Jerri, take a look at the chart earlier in this thread. The Corvette is not exactly leading the pack for torsional rigidity. It doesn't matter if it was more rigid than before. It wasn't that...

People are confusing side head bags with side torso bags. They are two different things. The C6 and C7 do not have side head bags.

Thanks for the fake news.

Go ahead and tell NHTSA, IIHS and every automaker on the planet that they are wasting their time and money on side curtain airbags.

What we have here is someone who just went on my Ignore List. It's fine to disagree, and present your viewpoint. Name calling is out.

It is not a matter of whether or not the Vette handles well, but rather under what conditions does the handling start to fall apart. It's a matter of what compromises were made to the suspension to...

Better take those seat belts out, because those shoulder harness retractors are adding weight and raising the center of gravity.

Of course, you are forgetting about all the weight added to the...

CARB spends $700 million a year in taxpayer money, and accomplishes nothing that the EPA isn't already doing. They have outlived their usefulness. They have people working there with fake degrees,...

No, it's not stupid at all. It's one you don't want to think about. A $15K Toyota Yaris has head air bags, but a $60K+ Corvette doesn't. That's just plain stupid.

It's not dumb. You just don't want to think about it.. You know what's dumb? A $60K car that doesn't have head air bags, and a $12K Nissan Versa does. Not that's dumb.

Maybe it's not caused by twist along the longitudinal axis of the car, but torque generated at the wheels bending the body.

I have to admit I was duped. I thought a lot of people took out their Targa tops based on reports here on the forum. Then I realized that it was the same few people on here who reported how much they...

I'm not surprised. The roof of the car has a big hole in it.

For all practical purposes, the Targa top is not used. I know we have a vociferous contingent on here who will tell us how much they...
