    Mustang finally ditched its live rear axle a few years ago. About time the Corvette was actually something besides a bad mid life choice

    @Country Boy 85 nothing about what you are saying is going to make any Corvette owner insecure. Especially not coming from a guy who thinks STIs are fast cars.

  21. Country Boy 85

    Country Boy 85پیش 14 روز

    @Some Guy you clearly are insecure about people ragging on your car. If you like a Corvette and use it for road course racing as it was intended you are among the very few. Im glad you drive what you love. I drive an 80s truck and a CVPI because that's what I love and because debt is dumb. I spent many years in Syracuse car culture including automotive college during the recession. I was on a build team for a FFR Roadster when they first came out. I have had conversations with Dave Tucci about carrier advice and even met thee Geen Winfield. Ive been to dozens of car shows from indoor 6 figure cars to gas station cruise inns with turbo ragers (before they came that way) to shoe box chevys . I respect everything from an all motor 12 second 4 cylinder Honda to a rat rod made out of junk a mechanic had behind his shop, to a full on custom tri5 nomad that has a twin turbo Cadillac v8 and a Corvette transaxle. I also like custom Jeeps and small 4x4 trucks like Rangers, s10s and Frontiers exc. I even sold new Nissans for a while... the z is one heck of a piece of equpment. More reliable than a Chevy, better fit-and- finish and the zq v6 is amazing especially in stick shift. Is it a 911 turbo or a vette? No but still more common to find z owner actually drive the thing.

    @Country Boy 85 you need to get out of whatever small town you live in and see the rest of the world. STIs? Seriously?

  23. Country Boy 85

    Country Boy 85پیش 18 روز

    @Some Guy again, most ppl that own a vette don't drive them. In CNY car culture vettes are not popular among guys that drive cars hard or track them. STI is the performance car of NY. And again I'm a Panther guy. Town Car L with 6spd manual swap is my dream daily car and a M1009 is my dream fun truck/bugout car

  24. Some Guy

    Some Guyپیش 18 روز

    @Country Boy 85 I had my first one at 25. Up to 4 now and I am only 40. Why are cars that hold their values and perform extremely well "bad mid life choice(s)?" If there is no place to race one then there is no place to race anything else...

    I have driven mid engine porsches. More rear end traction especially when cornering high speed. Loved the Ford GT500 vid. It is a beast near the demon genre. With that said, the Corvette has always had a mid-life gentlemen demographic as opposed to a straight gear head. I think this in overall drivability would the sacrifice would be small. More enjoyable as a daily driver.

    I don't know how many are out now, but it's crazy I haven't seen a single one on the road yet. When the 7s first came out there were half a dozen in town. I live in a smaller poe dunk town in Wv but we have at least 2 dozen supercars around town. There is a ton of money in certain areas around here and still not a single c8 anywhere. Hell they may not really be fully released yet i don't know

    I knew it was going to be a waste of time when you took 1/2 the video to get out on the street. Then another 6 minutes getting somewhere and another 4 minutes yaking about it, and then you do a launch. All this nothin' burger after you bragged about having "world records". Jeeze, put a sock in it and drive like the nut you promised...

    I think you hit the nail on the head with the Z06 or possibly the ZR1 having to be turbo charged rather than S/C due to the belt issue. Good catch.

    from another video - to do a standing burnout, you do actually do what you mentioned. You launch it and get on the brake right away, from there it's pretty close to a normal burnout.
