I disagree with that as I found C5 brakes lacking. It would be a nice upgrade on a street car. If you're going for track time go with something better than C6 Z06 brakes.

I think you are about spot on, and rotating assembly weight differences would be negligible.

C6 Z06 brakes are fine with both knuckles as the Z06 brakes passed R&D with the same spindle as the C5.

I didn't see a MPG change.

What I didn't like is the 2-3 shift dropped RPMs and momentum was lost a bit under acceleration. The lower 1st/2nd didn't seem to be a big advantage. If you are doing...
