A few more feet, that's true. But, it would be nice if it were a kill right from the start!they can keep there a.w.d.It goes well with that sissy exhaust note!As the narrator said,the Z just needed a few more feet.
Interesting. Do you have any more info about that?I've been under a ZR1 the front hubs are splined I don't think GM was that far away from it. Maybe they just couldn't work it out.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rotating_splineCould someone explain to me what the word "splined" means, in regard to the discussion about how they put these inadequate parts on the car. What performance problems does this cause?
That's what I believe as well. For instance, the Jaguar C-X75 and the Porsche 918 Spyder are very interesting concepts, and they look good too!OK i understand now. Tadge has always talked about awd but he says it is too heavy. I wouldn't mind an all wheel drive vette, but I don't think it will happen.
Maybe a hybrid thing would be cool.
I like your reply :thumbsup:Ronald:
Enjoy your posts. Keep up the good work.
As to Corvette 4WD, Porsche has disproportionate weight distribution over the rear wheels which helps in the quarter mile, but not so much in road course track times with less-than accomplished pilots at the wheel. Also don't see too many (any?) 4WD applications in ALMS, DTM, etc. I don't think Porsche goes 4WD at ALMS events. Tadge Juechter (and others) confirm lots of frictional losses in 4WD drivetrain applications as well. 4WD good for inclement weather in street car applications, including those vehicles like the 911 that demonstrate handling vices on road courses resulting from rear weight bias. Otherwise give me a 4WD SUV for lousy weather and leave my rear wheel drive Corvette as she is.
