    To Z07 or not to Z07

    I'm contemplating ordering a Z06 before C7 production ends and the front engine 'Vette is gone forever. My question to you all is; is the Z07 package worth the extra $7- 11K (including the Level 2 ground effects)? I do intend on doing some local track events along with the One Lap of America...

    LS3 C6 Vs. C4 ZR-1

    I was just doing some amrchair racing in my head and I began to wonder which would come out on top, the 436hp LS3 C6, or the 405hp DOHC LT-5 ZR-1. On paper, it would apear that the LS3 would win. 31 more horsepower, and a couple hundered pounds lighter, it seems obvious. Has anyone raced a...

    How to Wash and Wax Your Corvette’s Paint

    Guess what I spent the day doing? Yep, washing and waxing my car. Apparently I recently parked under a tree that was dripping sap. Now I’ve got 4 dime sized spots of sap on my car. I have not had a chance to detail her paint yet this year, so this is the perfect excuse. I figured I would write...

    Break Pedal Popping

    My '08 C6 has developed a popping issue in the brake pedal. When the car is cold and I press down on the brake pedal I feel a little pop about 1/2 through the stroke of the pedal. It does not affect the performance of the brakes though. As the car warms up, the popping becomes softer and softer...

    High Praise

    The company I work for is developing a pump for Audi. It is going to go in the Diesel powered version of their Q7 SUV's. We have been working on this project for well over a year now, and it has had its ups and downs, like any project. A group of Audi engineers came for a visit last week, to...

    Crossed Flags Badges

    Are the Corvette crossed flag badges on the front and rear of the car just stuck on with 3M adhesive, or are there posts on the backside of the badges that secure them to the body pannels? Jason

    Oil Consumption

    How much oil should I expect my LS3 to consume between oil changes? I just changed her oil, and she was about 1/2 quart low. To be fair, there were 15 or so passes down the drag strip, so some oil consumption is to be expected. Just trying to get a feel for what is average. :thumb Jason

    Question: Driving Position

    Is there a way to lower the seats in a C6, beyond the limit of pushing the down button on the power seats I mean? I'm almost 6'6" tall, and in my normal driving position I have about 1" between the top of my head and the underside of the roof. The helmet I wear when I go to the strip is a good...

    Dick Guildstrand's GSRT

    It has been a while since I've heard about any tuner cars comming from Guildstrand, but then I found a story on Edmunds.com about Guildstrand's GSRT, or "Grand Sport Removable Targa" The story dosent mention any performance numbers, but considering the $95,000 price tag (on top of a new Z06)...

    Question: Another Key Fob Question

    So riddle me this: I usually use key fob #1, and every time I go to open the door with the fob in my pocket, it opens, just like it is supposed to. Lately however, when I try to start the car, there will be a lot of clicking, and the DIC will show "No Fob Detected", and the security icon will...

    Is This The C7 Corvette?

    Just found this pic on Bad Boy Vettes.com. According to Left Lane News.com this is the 2011 C7 and it will appear in the forth comming Transformers 2 movie. This car is definitely a good fit for a Transformers movie, but that front end looks more like a Cadillac XLR than a Corvette. From the...

    Key Fob Range

    Is there a way to reduce the range of the key fob? My work area is about 20 yards from where I park my car every day, and it is not unusual to hear my alarm blaring because the panic button has been pressed while in my pants pocket. I've also come out on more than one occasion and found that the...

    Brake and Clutch Fluid

    I was cleaning under the hood today, and I checked the brake and clutch fluid reservoirs. The clutch fluid is almost black, and should probably be changed. I'm not too surprised about that, because I did do 5 runs down the strip a few weeks ago. The brake fluid surprised me though, it is dark...
