  • C8 Visits NCM Bash Via Extensive HR Pictures and Videos!

    The C8 just visited the circle at the NCM Bash. Pictures below in thread # 2 with great thanks to our own Marcho Polo.

    What was extra exciting was while our member Craig Marcho, aka “Marcho Polo” (a professional photographer) and I were standing inside the circle with Keith Cornett, along a few others invited in though standing in other parts of it, of course along with a fair amount of GM staff, Tadge came over to visit Marcho Polo and me as we awaited its arrival, we were joking about the amount of C8 questions that he and the Corvette team are being asked about the car’s details that they of course can not answer before 7.18.19. Tadge said I could however say.

    He was happy of course when the car completed its circular drive everyone while remaining on the sides of the road.

    When the driver goosed the throttle for our benefit (probably about 600 people around the circle), “the crowd went wild.” As we did when the car accelerated very briskly away up the road.

    Thanks again to Craig for all the below pictures!

    Thank you CorvetteBlogger, Spring Mountain and NCM for your wonderful videos!

              LOL I'm in that video in the black jacket taking pics from the center circle by Tadge. We were "chatting about the weather" when it pulled up.

                  One thing is very clear about Tadge, he is a very funny man. Got to love his humur... "4-wheels and a steering wheel is breaking news!!!" Thanks John and Jag for all of the great reporting at the bash!

                        I just watched the video several times that the Corvette Museum posted with the C8 driving around the circle. The driver is reving the engine without jerking forward as if he had a clutch pushed in. Call me crazy but how do you do that with both hands on the steering wheel and not have a clutch. Can you use a paddle shifter to shift to neutral and back to drive maybe?

                              Most DCTs have a way to disengage the clutch. Pulling in both paddles at the same time, for example.
