Your Lottery Z06 Christmas Present

Tired of waiting and want a long shot to get your Z06? I have two friends who between them have won three new Corvettes. Is this your Christmas self-present? https://www.midenginecorvetteforum.c...iversary-coupe. Might you be the third friend who wins a Corvette lottery by buying just one ticket? Of course still going to be many months until you are driving it, but if you win a heck of lot cheaper than your/my other plan.

  • Advanced High-Pressure Die-Cast Aluminum Casting's on the ME Zora

    Advanced high-pressure die-cast aluminum casting's can be seen in Zerv's leaked CAD views looking like a ribbed honeycomb aluminum casting, which are located at all four wheel well locations and throughout the Mid Engine Zora structure. Normally this structural component would take multiple pieces to assemble, but with the new casting technology, it’s one single piece. These futuristic components lead to increased structural rigidity at critical stress points for the car. It also allows for unnecessary weight to stay off the car, embracing the weight reducing goal of the engineering team further. Thoughts from the forum?

    This is very interesting. Thank you for sharing this info. What is there not to like, with the primary results being increased structural rigidity and reduced weight.

    Nice that we also have a third consequence, the reduction in the number of parts in the final suspension component (from multiples to only one). I am from the school of thought that the more separate pieces are connected to each other, the greater the chances of the final structure not meeting the desired final spec, due to any one of the parts being improperly welded, glued, bolted or otherwise put together.
