I don't think there is anything new here. GM owns the copywrite to the software used in its cars if they wrote it, or had it written for them. The article talks about whether there could be a...

The GT350 is a very interesting car for sure. If Chevy can keep the weight down with gen6 then the exotic Ford engine will be less of an advantage. Kudos to Ford for keeping the bar high.

Great job on the renderings. I hope the headlights are more than HID lenses nested in slits however. The standard lenses on the z/28 actually look better than the SS headlights on the '14 refresh I...

LS3, as is in the new lighter chassis would be fine with me. The LS3 has great power curves for both torque and hp, and no AFM or VVT. Maybe GM will offer the LS3 for the first couple of model...

This is the problem IMO. Use DOT4 like the remote reservoirs' caps say. DOT3 is not up to the temps.

This is the problem. Gearing. The stock gearing is too tall. The Mustang is lighter and could have a 3.73.

Seen a couple now in person and the answer is no from a styling perspective. Too much nose and too much tail. The car does not look athletic.

You can order a 1LE with CTS-V front brakes.

I would take the 1LE if I tracked often. Less to break, cheaper to fix, better throttle on balance (as I have heard), almost 260lbs lighter. Finally,...

Love it. As another article said: anyone can build a car that makes great numbers with a six figure price tag. Further, the Z28 is really the only practical option if you track often.

Fuel continues to drip from the injectors unless you depressurize the fuel system in my experience. So your problem would be fuel dilution after storage. Therefore if you only change once a year I...

Hmm, can't tell for sure but with the higher ride height some kind of modified suspension is there under that '80s body. Could be a 6th gen set of front and rear cradles retrofitted underneath.
