    Goes down like you would expect, still thought you guys would like to see it as there is very little racing going on right now.

    Wonder why they ran the 500 in Normal mode? There's a world of difference between the modes on the 500. Can't tell the mode for the C8.

    I hate that Corvette speedo jumping 8,9,10 mph at a time. Come on Chevy, pick up the refresh rate! Sheesh. That would annoy me. I love the C7, esp. in Z06 form, but there's just something about the C8 that doesn't do it for me. The C8 was quicker from a roll vs. the GT500 than I thought it would be.

    Not a bad video. I guess he is looking for hits. Did not pimp his company much until the end and actually showed two stock cars running.

    I thought the same thing as soon as they showed the in car camera! WTF, that's annoying as hell. I know that's a little thing, but damn.

    Agreed, not nearly as nice on the eyes as this.

    Another reason I will always prefer analog gauges over digital. Once every single car switches to a screen the manufactures will start charging extra for "real" gauges as an option.

    No comparison. Analog gauges done right are timeless. Digital gauges are a product of their time and 9 times out of 10 look really dated in 10 years.

    I concur on all points and I just love the two analogs in the new car. Beautiful design and implementation, IMHO. Definite old school "look." And who remembers Sun tachs? :-)

    That suffix I don't remember but no doubt we're thinking of the same thing, Jaime.

    Boy that 500 grows some long legs once it gets moving.

    The C8 shocked me how quick it left the line.

    This is just way to cool. Who else would love to have this on a modern muscle or sports car? I know I would.
