    Grand Sport Service Rear Axle.

    So about a week after the warranty ends I get this message in the DIC. 2017 Grand Sport 7 speed. Didn't seem to affect anything until I went on my favorite exit with the off camber dog leg. I usually hit this one at around 95 or better. Now I can feel the rear end fighting itself. Anyone have...

    1969 T Top dimensions

    Can anyone tell me the dimensions for T Tops on a 1969? Daughter has a 69 with some frame work done. Obviously incorrect as the T Tops don't fit. Before I get out the plasma cutter I would like to know the correct dimensions. Thanks.

    Well the first Gran Sport hit Vegas yesterday. I couldn't help myself and even though I will be sleeping on the couch for about a month, I bought it. Watkins Glen Gray and all the options.

    Question: Z51 tire replacements

    Any one have a favorite tire replacement for 2014 Z51? I have gotten far more miles than I ever expected out of the stock Pilot Sports. I have just over 20k on them. I usually get between 8k and 12k before searching for new rubber. Are the non run flats a large improvement over the run flats? I...

    New Stingray

    Finally closed on a new Premier Edition Stingray Z51. Laguna Blue with the Brown interior. Number 283 of 500. This thing is awesome. Got rid of the 2013 ZL1. Nice car but what a gas hog and when the blower sucked itself, was over a month to find the parts.

    Grand Sport Installed a HUD this weekend

    Let me tell you something. Make sure you order this thing from the factory. Although is wasn't that hard, is was very time consuming. I took about 6 hours total time spread over 3 days last weekend. It's very hard for a guy like me who has broken as many bones as I have to sit in the cockpit and...

    Bridgestones

    Well it has been about a month since I put the Bridgestone Potenzas on my Z. Not a lot of difference grip wise but they are quieter a smoother ride. Just a little over 4k miles in that month. I drove from Vegas to Portland Oregon and back. If you can, avoid the streets in Portland. Bumpy as all...

    Can anyone tell me what the yoke width on a 64 should be? I have a guy that is not very car savy but wants me to order a new differential for him. The car is in Cal or I would go and measure myself.
