Thereís an easy solution to that issue.

Take the ZL1 1LE wheels, tires, brakes, suspension and aero, slap it on an SS and call it the 2LE.

Lightning Lap is for new cars or new packages. The SS 1LE is not a new package. The turbo 4 1LE is.

People already said the Z06 was too difficult to drive at the limits. I'm not sure why anyone thought throwing more power at it would have made it better.

I didn't get a 6th gen because of the size. I would have preferred a slightly bigger car, with a lower belt line and bigger windows.

Here is my opinion on what's wrong with the 6th gen.

1. They basically copied the 5th gen styling. No matter how good it looked, it was getting stale.

2. They didn't fix the visibility. No...

Magazine articles also swore the C7 would come with a 5.5l V8. They swore the LT5 was going to be DOHC.

Magazines are often wrong, so I would take their information with a brick of salt.

It depends on the content of the car. It's pretty clear that by sales, people prefer content and goodies more than performance. That's why the ZL1 1LE exists. You can get great performance, but more...

Car looks good mlee.

Someone attending a Ford update leaked a document showing a new 7.3 V8. Rumors are it will be a pushrod engine.

If I remember right, Corvette also wanted AFM in the engine, so it was a combination of AFM not letting them rev high enough to make their goals, and not meeting mileage goals without AFM.

Looks to me like they are testing two versions. One looks to be a base model and another may be the Z51, with the splitter and wing.

20 lbs of boost basically multiplies the displacement by 2.3, so the actually lb*ft/l is effectively 62.8.

It's not a 1LE. It's SS components slapped on a turbo 4 car. At least the 5th gen 1LE had unique components. Hell, they didn't even bother painting the brake calipers red.

Al O is just saying they will not limit what cars they build, like the V6 answer turbo 4 1LEs.

The unfortunate part is, the 7th gen is likely to continue off of the 6th gen refresh style. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how that turns out. If the refresh flops and the 7th gen keeps it, that...

Except they didn’t break the rule. The rule went from 5.0 to 5.7 liters. Then Trans Am went away and so did the rule.

Besides, no Z/28 exceeded 5.7 liters, until the 5th gen.
