  • Ron Fellows Reliability

    I wondered if anyone has a connection to the Fellows School to see how the new cars are holding up and what issues they might have had ?

    I have never heard anything to the contrary of excellence when it comes to Ron Fellows. GM is a big promoter and I am sure His school gets everything they need to maintain a first class act.

      If there is any reliability information about Ron’s C8’s you can bet it’s shared with GM, not the public.

        I'm booked in for November. I will be paying attention to the wear and tear on the cars for sure.

        Here is hoping that Canadians can travel there by then as I am planning to roadtrip there! 2,000 miles each way!

          I took the C8 Ron Fellows class last week and it was great, it is not to be missed. The cars performed very well, no issues at all. All the instructors were fantastic!!! They made for an outstanding experience.

            The cars at Spring Mountain are meticulously maintained and if any issues are found are fixed immediately. If there's anything systemic, I'm sure they share it with GM/Chevy, not the general public, as GM is their partner.

              Did you feel you got adequate track time ?

                Having been there a couple of times for C7, you get plenty.

                  Each car only is driven for 8000 to 9000 miles before they are sold. Here in California you can purchase them from DC motors in Anaheim California.

                    I wouldn't be surprised if GM/Corvette had someone assigned to Spring Mountain to both help maintain the cars and also keep a close check on the wear and tear. That is a great proving ground for the Corvette.

                      I'm doing a full review write up with videos on my C8 Owners School experience, but I can tell you that I got more seat time in the C8 than I did in the C7 school in 2017. And, the cars are doing amazingly well, actually. I have some things to say about that as well. All of their cars are CTF cars at the moment, too.

                          We went to the Ron Fellow's program after we got our '14 C7 vert and I asked the folks there the same question about 'reliability'. The response was, it's a high performance automobile and the drive train along with the major mechanical and chassis components are virtually bullet proof. The stuff that fails is usually something like a power window, seat or mirror switch.

                          Owning well over a dozen new Corvettes over the years that's been my experience too.
