C&D interview

I received mi new car and driver today. Here are some interesting thing that catches mi eye from an interview with the corvette team.
weight distribution about 48/52
VIR lap times comparable to the Z06
chassis is more than 50% stiffer then the Z06
Brakes should be more durable and have better stopping power .

The 48/52 weight split is impressive, i have argued that this is about the best weight split for all around performance.

It is important to point out that it is more then 50% stiffer with the roof section in place and I believe 20% with the roof panel removed.

20% stiffer than a Z06 and the wind in your hair? Awesome
