....LOL...for sure it's too quiet...once the times are posted and we drool all over the keyboard after watching the film clips things should heat up...... It's gonna be another long process until we get the final specs, figures....and....price. So we watch, look, and listen many times a day for anything new....and bide our time. Isn't this fun??? LOL

Maybe as production gets closer to reality and there is more news, things will pick up. I think it's still early yet. With summer coming, I'm sure things will heat up...so to speak

And then there's that dang C7. I get frustrated (to myself) when others can't make up there mind. I usually have no problem as I know quickly and easily what I like, but now I'm torn. Oh the humanity!

I think once pricing is known it will make it easier for you. Do you expect the Z/28 to be around the same price as a Stingray? I think it will be a little cheaper. My biggest dilemma for my 2014 1LE is RS or no RS. Definitely getting Recaros. Like Blueclyde was saying, it's great to have so many choices.

Thanks guys
Depends on what you can install and what you pay to have done.

I think if you did the work yourself you could do it for 50k (minus brakes)

i think the C7 and Z/28 will be a drivers race.

Yes knowing the pricing of each will help. Yes the choices are great!

I'm not that familiar with the Corvette line....They seem to come up frequently in regards to the Z/28...Trying to get a handle on why the Corvette's "influence" on this thing is in the mix as much as it is...

Is it a choice for track times?...A choice based on pricing?...A desire for the similar engine?....Is the Z/28 stepping on the Corvette's image or something?....Hopefully you get my drift...Not being negative...

To me, they seem like two different cars completely...Not seeing why the Corvette is such a factor here...

Slam me if you want...(don't worry, I won't become a regular in this thread...lol)...But any basic thoughts would be helpful...Thanks, Tom

...or, just ignore this post completely...lol...
In this thread you will not be ignored or slammed. It's just not our style.
Quickly now (I'm slammed today leaving for a weeks business show), the pricepoints are comparable. The Z/28 would be a toy for me. No need for utility. The new Corvette is OUTSTANDING! They will be close in capabilities. Hence the quandry (though I am a Camaro guy first).
