Looks great, one question

I have the same spoiler and never installed it because I was told that I would have extra holes in trunk lid on my 2013 2SS 1LE. What did you do about the holes, and where are they?

How about a bike

I always loved riding a bike, a pedal bike, so liberating.

Viper is great no doubt, but?

I am really answering an honest question here. The ACR is great no doubt.

But why does the Corvette win all the big races, Lemans, 24 hour Daytona and many of the smaller races and petit lemans

Thank you

I agree with all you said. The reason I chose 750 hp at the crank is that it would give me about 640 to 650 at the wheels. This number seems to be a number most agree on this forum is about the max...

What a bunch of joksters.
