    Was on my way to work and a nice black C6 went driving on by, did a u-turn at the light and went by a second time, stopping at the light so I could get a good look at it...


    pictures just don't do that fucking car justice... it's an amazing piece of machinery in person.

    sounds sessy too :naughty:

    I thought the same thing when I found out... but the Corvette performs quite well, so I just let it go.

    well ... yeah... :o

    but vettes have had leafsprings lots of times :o :o :o

    and still do :big grin:


    but in all honestly... who the fuck cares?
    they're not even used in the traditional sense that a leafspring is used in trucks or older cars.

    Hey, I'm not knocking the car.... I don't care what they use to keep the car off the ground, obviously it's working for the car.

    I have no problems with leaf springs. They obviously work very well for the vette seeing how it is one of the best handling cars for under 100k. And while you guys are spending over a grand on the latest Megan Racing J-Spec R-Type coilovers setups, the vette guys just spend a couple bucks on bolts to drop their cars.
