The website uses the SS for the example. GM actually notifies the dealer which VINs qualify. Lot's of Z28's qualify. I hear they are moving pretty quickly. As are the nice ZL1's.

I hear you on the cost effectiveness and early reports on tracking the Z28 (it does have a warrantee). Here's what I've done to my 2010 to make it a track weapon.

I'm not all that surprised. Corvette has a very slight hp advantage. Viper has at least 150 lbs advantage. I'll give up 10 hp to lose 150lbs.

Here's why you need two sets of wheels for the Z28 if you're going to track them. As we all know, there isn't much room between the front calipers and the wheel's barrel. Track debris, tire rubber,...

Corvette groups go to BG all the time. The hotels and the town in general know the routine. Avoid the hotels out on I65. They are mostly run down flea bags.

Slight scratches from removing the balancing tape is common. Use a black marksalot if they are not too bad. The true ding, well that's a bigger problem.

The SS turns in fine but when powering out it begins to push. So much traction out back I can't get the rear to swing out a little. Probably need to keep tinkering with my front end settings.
