    There you go again, dude...popping off without knowing what you're talking about.

    Corvettes use transverse leaf springs in the rear.

    I used to be a corvette enthusiast.

    Until I saw what corporate america did to them. They are now pieced together like a plastic version of a hyundai.

    Except Hyundais are built better. :D


    I don't know, I really don't like them mainly because of the owners who think they are the best sports car out there. Sure, the Z06's were great track cars and had lots of performance for the money, but a 90k car with that kind of build quality seems a bit stupid. You think GM would learn to make panel gaps shorter and make a shifter that doesn't move around with the engine. I've driven a 5-spd C5, and it's like driving a really fast, low, chevy truck.

    Whoa... 90k for a Z06? Confusing it with the viper much?

    The C6 Z06 should top around 70-80k and will out perform various 100k+ 'exotic' sports cars.

    Like it or not, the Z06 Corvette is one of the cheapest and best performing 'super cars' on the market.
