  • C7 to C8 Tech/Other Transfer

    There are so many ways that there were C6 to C7 advancements. Four that I and others noted immediately, were far better steering precision, a configurable dash, sound customization exhaust (the latter on most models) and eLSD. There were almost countless others.

    What are you thinking will be those C7 improvements that will carry forward, though perhaps further improved, on the ME?

    Not saying that there won’t be further improvements in each of the areas we collectively note, but that the ME will be far from a brand new slate, instead incorporating many of the C7’s tech/other enhancements as integral 2020 Corvette components.

    Based on past reveal/press release presentations, we will be correctly told that X numbers (limited) of parts have carried into the ME, but again what major C7 improvements do you think become the basis of further C8 component/system enhancements?

    I think that Chevrolet’s involvement in racing the last few years has really improved the suspension, balance ,and handling of the C7 compared to earlier years. It seems to me that Chevrolet finally got serious about engineering, and could see the value of racing to improve the breed. This knowledge and attitude will transfer to the ME in any ways. Yes, improved interiors are nice, but for me, a well engineered platform is much more important. A small example,, a front suspension with excessive bump steer can be fixed by a simple change of pivot points , which are a no cost deal if you designed it correctly in the first place. I think this is what Chevrolet has finally learned.
    Stated as best as I can, your thoughts,,,,
