      I know I am biased (as my daughter is enrolled at one of the nation's best engineering schools) but, I love to see women engineers and designers have the passion for their profession.😀

                I received these videos via e-mail this afternoon.
                They are working me into a lather! Can't wait to get behind the wheel, feel the power and listen to that glorious exhaust note.

                  More drip drip and no new news on price or order info. Personally, it’s actually making me want one less, might just go in a different direction.

                      Get something else for your repeat negative energy is hardly refreshing nor desired. Hope you find what you are looking for, whether it be a Porsche, a BMW, a Lambo, a Ferrari or whatever you choose! May it be the car of your dreams, be gorgeous, be priced right and fit into your budget.

                      But then again and quoting you,

                      “I was actually surprised when my c7 z51 was a more compliant ride than a new Porsche 911 Carrera...”

                      I will make an offer to you alone that you search for something else and stay away from MECF and all other Corvette and auto media that covers Corvettes while you do. When we get the price I will personally email you what the Z06’s MSRP is, and if you haven’t bought something in the interim and the price appeals to you, you could return.

                        The exhaust video was interesting. First time I recall hearing them discuss feeling the exhaust as just opposed to hearing it.

                        I meant to ask at the BASH and forgot about the Z06's MyMode. Specifically was there any plan to give MyMode the same full set of controls that is available in Z-Mode.

                        2021 Red Mist HTC / Z51 /Mag Ride / Yellow Calipers / C-Flash Mirrors and Wing / Front Lift / Black 3LT / CF Interior Trim / Yellow Belts and Stitching

                        Atomic Orange C6. Plenty of engine and suspension mods. Gone, but not forgotten

                          Sorry I can’t begin to answer your second question, but as to the first when you are sitting at a light with the motor idling, you will feel the vibrations of the LT6 it in your seat, your feet and the driver will also in the steering wheel. It was clarified that they are not unpleasant but rather conveying an urgency as to what is next. One of them compared them to feeling that the car is alive and rearing to go. When I talked with Alex MacDonald at the reveal, he used the word “urgency” in describing them.

                            I was ++ enthralled when I heard (first) the Z06 start-up, then (even more) when Josh Holder revved it up, at the Bash. Videos don't do justice to experiencing it "up close and personal". If you like the sound of aggressive V8 throaty "purring" engines, this one is for you. For me, it was like listening to a symphony on wheels and I imagine it only gets better at higher speeds. Can't wait!

                              An FPC is going to transmit vibration but I don't believe she was discussing that aspect. She says in the video (~ 1:20 - 1:35) the reflected exhaust waves make it "so you could feel it."
