No automatic for me....far too boring. I'm old school, back in the 60's (I was a senior in 1964) the stick shifts were far superior to the automatics. I just like driving my manual transmission. I...

Does anyone know if the rear differential in the new Z28 is a 9.9" (as in the ZL1) or the smaller version as in the SS? The reason I ask is that I have a CTS V Coupe with a 6-speed manual and I would...

The Dynapac dyno does read high, because they remove the rear wheels and actually mount the dyno devices on the rear axle so the car is not turning the wheel and tire. They are an excellent tuning...

Done properly there is no damage at all. I have been power shifting since the 1960's and have never broken a transmission. Here is a video shot inside my 2004 SRT-10 Ram (which I bought new in 2004)....

I think that is the lift of the cam for intake and exhaust, since he is giving the other cam specs in the same line.

Wrong. It was a 2014. I think the 285 stock tires(on the GT500) may have helped me win. It was 3 weeks old and that was his first 1/4 mile pass in the car.
