They mentioned my name in there once. I e-mailed them about The Vettewrench when they were looking for top shops.

There were a few times I wanted to write them a letter and it wasn't going to be about my car or top shops. I was not happy with that mag so I dropped my subscription instead.

I hope you get your car in there. :cheers: They have at least one featured car a month whose owner is on CF.

For one I don't like that arrogant prick Dave Emmanuel (sp?), second reason is they have really weak tech articles, thirdly the C4 tech talk usually has only 2 reader letters, the other generations tech cover more letters and last but most important was I was getting it 3rd week of the month. I'd read so much about the current issue on the forums that by the time I get the mag, I already knew most of what was in it.

I still read it though b/c there are some things like the news and auction results. The guys at PHP have a subscription and they keep it in the waiting area. I'll be looking for ya in there. ;)

Eric,

I saw your letter!!! It's exciting to see your name in print, isn't it?:excited: As you know, I was featured a couple of years ago in Corvette Fever's "Ladies" issue...with my '88 yellow convertible, "Lemon Peel". Just recently, I had to write them a letter of correction as they had misquoted the number of Grand Sports in a previous issue. It was entitled "Tsk! Tsk!"...was in the Letters to the Editor page a couple of months later!

Now, maybe in the Ladies issue of Vette magazine??

Can you check the November issue to see if there is a report about the C5-R switching to a Tiptronic transmission? It's supposed to have no clutch pedal.

I think the article says that Corvette Racing switched to a sequential 5-speed Hewland transaxle witha normal dry-plate clucth. Could you peruse the magazine and provide a definitive answer?

Thanks.

Can you quote a section of the article? Specifically any mention of how they transmit the torque from the flywheel to the transaxle. And this is an article about the C5-R, right? Not an article about the C6/XLR transmission?

Oh, and do they have a link to that article on-line?

Thanks
