    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...

    Grand Sport 2010 GS

    I doubt it. The Grand Sport is replacing the Z51 option. I have not heard anything indicating that GS is going to be a Z06 replacement. :thumb Jason

    Grand Sport NCM C5/C6 Bash 2010 Grand Sport Pictures

    Lol, for once I'm not going to complain about the HUGE pics. Thanks Dwayne! The fish gills are going to take some getting used to, but I love the Grand Sport wheels and the Z06 scoop on the nose. That Cyber Grey 'vert with the competition grey wheels is beautiful. :BOW :thumb Jason

    Grand Sport Chevrolet Announces New 2010 Corvette Grand Sport

    Sweet, thanks D. :upthumbs It raises a couple questions though. First, the Grand Sport does not get the Michelin tires? I thought they were standard equipment starting last year. The PPT also says the Grand Sport is built on the same chassis as the Z06. Is it really built on an aluminum...

    Grand Sport Chevrolet Announces New 2010 Corvette Grand Sport

    Wow, now where did I put that darn drooling smiley? That is beautiful! Now if only we had some pics of the coupe version. Is there any word on if this GS is a single year run, or if it is going to remain in production for a couple years? :thumb Jason

    Grand Sport 2010 MY: Return of the Grand Sport

    I think we are straying from the intent of Rob's initial post, which was to tease us with info about the upcoming 2010 Grand Sport. We all have strong feelings about the '96 Grand Sport. No one is denying it was an excellent car, but this thread is to discuss the upcoming 2010 Grand Sport...

    Grand Sport 2010 MY: Return of the Grand Sport

    Many years ago I owned GS328. Over the years I had her, I did a lot of reading about the '96 GS's. Based upon everything I read, I came to the conclusion that Mr. Heinricy's original goal with the GS was for it to be the sole swan song for the C4's. The GS was to be the only '96 'Vette...

    Grand Sport 2010 MY: Return of the Grand Sport

    I know the rumor was thrown out there a coupe years ago, that GM might break the Corvette out into its own marque. When the ZR1 was added to the line-up, I started to wonder if there might be some truth to the rumor. Now we've got the GS coupe and convertible added to the line up... ;shrug Any...

    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
