    D30 "Color Override" option

    After reviewing the 2012 Porduction #'s, I ran across "D30" Color Override" option. What IS that? All I know is 58 cars had it. None were Z06's. Are there 58 "Mary Kay" Corvettes running around?;LOL

    Synthetic or "dino" oil?

    Back in 1994, during the Charlotte 600 NASCAR race, an oil company did a test with 2 Hendrick/Joe Gibbs car engines. Both were run the full 600 miles at race speed. Both were totally torndown post race. (They always are.) One was run with a synthetic oil and the other got "dino" oil. Both oils...

    LS 7 ROCKER ISSUES

    My 2006 Z06 is finally out of warranty, so I feel safe to modify some things that have proven problematic. One of those things are the rocker arms. I've heard of Harland Sharp but was thinking of trying Scorpion Racing Products rockers as they look REALLY good. I suppose I'll have to change the...

    ROOF RECALL

    I went to the local Chevy dealership this am and they have another C6Z DSOM with chromies in the service area! Those chromies sure look nice! Anyway,I was watching the "Corvette Tech" dismantle my car. It took him 5 minutes to have the roof off. My car was built Jan.10 so I didn't have the "SMC"...
