We've been doing Corvette news & headlines podcasts on CORVETTE TODAY since September 2020. I don't remember ever doing a news & headlines podcast with this much critical information packed into one podcast! https://anchor.fm/steve-garrett/epis...y-2021-e14trnh. This is a "must listen" to podcast. Here are a few of the topics covered in this episode....

1. Chevrolet confirms the introduction this Fall of the 2023 C8 Z06 with a new video release-and it sounds like a Ferrari
2. Corvette dominates sales in Q2 2021
3. Chevy dealerships have received their first 2022 C8 allocations
4. Callaway looks ahead to 2022 and the Callaway C8 Corvette
5. Right-hand drive C8 is revealed at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK
6. New GT-3 spec C8.R expected in 2024

  • 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.
