    Re: New mid engine Corvette. July 18th.

    •A shout out to my Forum friends
    from The Land Down Under:

    -The first ever OEM RH-drive Corvette
    should soon be available for your driving
    enjoyment; and/or detailing pleasure:
    the current UAW/GM strike, notwithstanding.

    I saw Matt Farahs track run. He was very impressed. Said on the road the DCT was a bit clunky. Tends to he fairly typical of DCT boxes.

    •I’ve seen the drive train, from one end
    to the other, on a couple of the latest
    pre-production iterations of the Corvette:






    •I’ll post my thoughts/opinion on how it
    propels the actual production iterations of
    the latest Corvette—after I’ve had a chance
    to test drive them.

    {My local Chevrolet dealership...one of the
    Good Wrench’s good-guys...has absolutely
    no qualms about me/us doing so. }

    Re: New mid engine Corvette. July 18th.

    Jalopnik has a good summary of many reviews here: 2020 Chevrolet C8 Corvette: Here's What Everyone Says About How It Actually Drives

    What I find really interesting is a base spec or Z51 Corvette is not putting down numbers which beat the Z06 and ZR1 (2.8 sec 0-60?!). If that isn't justification for going mid-engined to improve performance I don't know what is.

    I think it's somewhere in this thread I mused about the room in the front being available for electic power plant similar to the NSX or WEC LMP1 race cars. Several of the car magazines make the same point. If Chevy does throw an electric motor or two in the front of the Vette we're going to see a car with McClaren P1 or Porsche 918 performance levels!
