Re: Harper Cars and Coffee 4/25/21

I've got this penciled in. We had planned on either going to NCM or Road Atlanta on Saturday but the weather is looking like crap @ both places so... think we'll keep the Corvette clean for a day.
If I go, I'm not sure I'll be allowed to leave the C8 unattended but I'll go :)

Re: Another newbie classing question

If you're JUST doing the school on Saturday, it shouldn't make any difference about the novice or not, as there's really no classing going on @ the school

This really only matters if you're running SUNDAY for the event.

Re: Newbie Questions - Bristol Event April 17th

To add to this. As long as the wheels are the original OEM wheels, they are good for 'street' classes like BS. If they were an optional wheel that had no other items tied to the option, you can run them, but if they were part of a package, the entire pacakge needs to be there in order to run them. O...

OAK RIDGE location has been abandoned for those of you not on FB.

Re: We got a new toy

ohhhhhhhhhh....

I'm willing to bet someone a good chunk of $ that it will never happen.

MAYBE 1 time just to see what it does, but I doubt even that. All seasons, no fancy Diff, etc... not really interested in trying it.

Re: We got a new toy

Thanks everyone. This thing is really something. Still trying to get on enough miles to clear the break-in procedure but we're 1/2 way there now. Drove it around town last night and stopped by Chateau Pilson to show them and so on.

We got a new toy

Well, We managed to keep it mostly a secret until the very end. Kim and I bought a 2021 Corvette Coupe yesterday and brought her home. Put the deposit down back in June and our allocation came up available in December. With all the plant shutdowns and parts shortages, it took about 4 weeks longer to...

Re: Looking for a car

Mine had 115k on it and I hadn't done the springs yet ( but had bought them ) and it sounded like it needed the balancer done ( i'm guessing on that one ). @ 108K I did the rear main seal, the diff rebuild, torque tube rebuild with new bushings, clutch w/master and slave done with remote bleeder, oi...

Re: Looking for a car

High miles don't always mean sketchy on a C5 though. Maintenance on them is key. I'd rather buy one with 80-100K miles on it that was maintained than a 25K mile garage queen. big things on the C5 ( in my experience ) Valve springs Harmonic balancer torque tube bushings and bolts ( mine @ 98K miles w...
