what R you lookin' at?
HAHA Jeremy Clarkeson, hes a funny guy, very sarcastic, but funny. :lolthat old brit needs a kick in the arse, lemme get my cowboy boots on!
Wasn't he running it off the track at most of the corners? I suppose he didn't want to ruin a test car. The Stig is a great driver though, although i question his taste in music :lolhe was driving that car like a pussy
Exactly! Invest enough money in the right places to bring it into the same price range as the competition, then let's talk!twill said:his review was kind of harsh, but he made pretty good points..the part where he put the pebble on the road and ran over it was hilarious.......the drag race looked like bullshit though, since he seemed to get a lot of wheelspin on the launch.
of course, im partial to the corvette anyway, so what do i know?
HalfLiterBeater said:Leaf springs? Huh? What? How did I miss this? I coulda sworn the C6 was fully independent rear suspension, with magnetic ride control.. Unless the ride control is only in the front.
Leaf spring suspension? BS, I have to see it for myself before I believe it. I'm having a somewhat hard time believing the car is even solid axle, although I imagine its possible. Just that Mustang has already done away with it in the Cobras.
EDIT: I just read it... My god...they're right.
"Enhanced structure, all-new suspension
While the foundation has been enhanced, every suspension component that attaches to it has been changed – none of the suspension bits have been carried over from C5. The short-long arm and transverse leaf spring independent suspension design remains, but the control arms, springs, dampers, bushings, stabilizer bars, and steering gear are completely redesigned. The Extended Mobility Tires (EMT) are also new, taking advantage of the latest compound technology for run-flat capabilities, and play a critical role in the tuning of the suspension for maximum handling and a comfortable ride."
