    Tire Wear?

    Is it normal for the front tires on the 03' z06 to wear un-evenly? I just inspected my front tires and noticed that the LF is down to the threads on the 1st inch of tire. It has pleanty of tread left. Do you think this is a wheel aligment problem or normal for these tires? Gus

    Corsa Installed

    I had my new Corsa Tiger Shark Pace Car Exhaust installed to day Had my local mechanic do it and it only cost me $97.00. Well worth it to me and a far cry from the $250.00 at the Chevy dealer. I'm in love again. If I knew it sounded this good I would not have waited for 2 years to put them on...

    03 Z06 Wheel Lugs?

    Does anyone know for sure if GM stopped using the wheel lugs and plastic caps on the Z06's after 2002? I have real lugs and I ordered new Chrome Z06 wheels. They sent me plastic covers for the lugs, but I don't have that type of lug. My only gripe is that their technician insisted that the...

    New Wheels

    I had my new "Chromies" installed last week. I think they look great. I don't care they weight more. I can always use the stock wheels if I go to the track. Gus

    Whew! I installed my CAGS Bypass kit today. Easy job (once you get the car off the ground) Wish I had done this long ago. Sure is nice driving around in traffic and just dumping into 2nd gear anytime I want. I went ahead and purchased the kit from MidAmerica. So I paid $20. too much. It sure...

    Rick Daniel

    I had the pleasure of shopping for a new Corvette with the help of Rick Daniel. I was not able to swing the deal, (my trade-in) but I will tell you this guy is the "real deal" He was right on top of everything and kept in contact with me. If you are in the market, I would recommend Rick. He...

    ?? Used C5's

    I'm going to buy a C5 used (1998-2001) I've read about oil consumption on the LS1 engines. Is there a way to tell which engines had this problem? I mean after you buy it you won't know for about 3k miles right? Any advice is appriciated. Thanks,

    LT4 LT4 Badge Question

    I'm looking at a 96' LT4 that is for sale. The pictures I've seen do not have any LT4 badges on the rear or quarter panels. Am I mistaken, I thought they had an LT4 Badge. Will I need to get the VIN to verify its a REAL LT4? Thanks,

    Oil Question

    Can anyone tell me? What is the worst that can happen if the sevice center changed my Mobile One Synthetic oil and put in regular oil and filter. BTW--- This was on my 1998 GMC Yukon. Do I need to replace it right away? The sevice technician did not seem concerned. Gus:confused

    Transmission 4+3

    Three weeks and now I've got it back. Just i time for the Black Hills Corvette Rally. It is nice and quiet now and shift good, but i still have that dead spot at 2nd gear. If you downshift from 3rd to 2nd and go to far left you miss 2nd. Same if you go from 1st to second and don't go straight...
