    Yup, sure did. Kinda rolled the dice and while it does have a slight 'warble' at 1500rpm under a light load (somewhat reminiscent of improperly installed ring/pinion sets that have a bit of whine on coast or acceleration), it's not a functional issue (yet). I'm currently content to leave well enough alone, and hope for the best.

    If indeed it does become an ongoing functional issue we'll just get rid of it and move on to something else. Nothing ventured, nothing gained...its a toy so daily impact would be minimal however it turns out.

    •And now you are attempting to disparage
    yet another aspect of a vehicle, that you
    have yet to fully see, with the same ol’
    “it leaves a bit to be desirable” refrain.
    Qualified with the a mention of personal opinion...*I* dont like the looks of the large side vents with their tabletop sized top surfaces and the recently leaked back end pictures looks like Godzilla stepped 9n the backend end of a Camaro.

    All personal preference but given Chevy's new generation history dating back to C5 column locks, C6Z's valvetrain issues, C7 tranny issues, I *think* such a radical overhaul that the C8 represents is gonna have some issues.

    I could be wrong, it happens quite frequently. While I was willing to take a chance on C7 issues, the C8 is too much of a departure for *me* to consider it.

    Fun cars need to be fun, if they have too many issues, not fun anymore.

    Meaning, IMO:
    -You know you’ll get a C8; it’s in your blood.

    It's in my wifes blood, not mine. New mid engine Corvette. July 18th.

    I'd rather be rolling around in a Mustang...

    And just plain getting up there in years; if it holds together like our C5 did, the C7 is likely the car we roll into the retirement community in 10 years!

    Who's staying up to watch the live unveiling?

    Kind of an odd place to do this, another bad omen! It should've been Bowling Green or Detroit, period!

    Lame presentation but the car really is sweet! Very cool they have the space to put targa top,solid all around. Just wish GM would be inspired to inject some of that into their other lines,

    Edit: Cadillac is coming out with some beautiful cars/SUV's also

    Nice! I like it.

    Is there a reason they went the mid engine route? I believe these are going to be making their way South to New Zealand in a right hand drive variant too. I’m gonna have to polish a few .... a lot more cars before there’s one in my stable though.

    Are you buying one Bob??? (FUNX650)

    Yes...The C8 Corvette has been
    globally-certified; ie: to include
    right hand drive variants; and those
    pesky Euro pedestrian “crush zones”.


    The Wife really likes it, and is ready to
    order a convertible version...as soon as
    they’re available! I just may have to go
    along with this notion. LOL!

    To me, it looks like a Hot Wheels Toy. Too overdone and gaudy looking. As well as too European.
