    Hello all, stumbled on the forum while searching for news and info on ME vette. I have been a sports car fan for as long as I can remember and have enjoyed many manufacturers offerings over the years including four corvettes, two of which I still have, although they are both dedicated race cars. So, I am looking forward to the day when the dealer calls me to come on down and place my order in the computer, deposit made just waiting for the order process to open. Probably go torch red black interior,with red piping, z51, 2lt, high wing as I intend to track the car, front lift and MRC. That should give the best of both touring and track duty worlds. Also very interested to see what the aftermarket develops for wheels as I am not loving the GM design offerings. Having said that, the trident wheel has a nice effect when rolling giving a complete silver circle/strip around the wheel, contrasting the black tires and rim at the same time. Pretty cool. Cheers for now.

        Welcome from Sunny Niagara.

        I picked up on "front lift" in conjunction with racing. There's another thread around that says that having front lift removes adjustability from the front springs, which otherwise would be there. Something to think about.

          Thanks for the heads up Bikerjulio, I think I did read that somewhere about the non adjustable ride height. However, not that concerned about it. Dropping the car all around to lower center of gravity is definitely better, but then it takes a lot of trial (track time) to really dial it in. Adding rake to the car usually improves aero, but it will be so slight and may cause understeer in the corners due to moving more weight to the front end. For casual track days, I am betting on the magnetic ride control to compensate for weight transfer during manouevering in corners. With proper telemetry one could dial it in, but for casual fun track days at 8/10ths effort the car should be very satisfying. I have corner weight scales too give me an idea of how the car is set-up from the factory, static. However the dynamic is very different, which is where I expect the MRC to take over.
