    Wonder if there are any differences in the 2021 manual compared to the 2020.

      Spring Mountain is your answer. Track at their fantastic facility, at the Corvette Owners School at their super discounted $1000 price, with their C8’s.

      As to how many track their Corvettes, historically it has been about 5%, though with Spring Mountain added in and more recently the NCM Motorsports Park HPDE’s and other experiences there, probably getting a small amount greater.

          I believe the car won't start if the hood is open.

              The Infotainment manual is now included in the main OM instead of in a separate book, and the font size is smaller to compensate. I guess that's proof GM is after a younger audience.

              It will start, but won't shift out of park if the frunk lid is open, UNLESS you hold the brake pedal down for 20 seconds before trying to shift. Then it's limited to 26 mph until the lid is closed. That's how they should have done it from day 1.

                Ah yes. I couldn't be bothered reading the manual.
                I agree I wonder if they can add it to the 2020's

                  Seems like a software thing, so it should be doable. And I seem to recall someone, somewhere on the interwebs, saying they had gotten another frunk lid update that said speed was limited to 26 mph, so maybe that was just a pilot test and they'll roll it out to everyone eventually.
