  7. 2002 Z06 Seats

    C5 Z06 - Pit Road
    When I had mine done, I had the shop use the original seat covers, but I had them do new inserts (in bright blue) to improve the look. They also used firmer foam when overstuffing the bolsters on seat backs and seats. If you wanted more grip for track days, I would use Alcantara for the...

    Take them to an upholstery shop and add more foam to the bolsters. Makes a huge difference. Jacob

    At least 5 miles of normal driving.
  12. C6 Z06 - NT05 for fronts / Sport Cup 2 for rears?

    C6 Z06 - Grandstand
    My C7 Z06 came with Cup 2's. Likely the scariest street tire I've seen until they are up to temperature. And if you get caught in the rain, stay off the freeway. I quickly bought a second set of OEM wheels and used Michelin Super Sports. The Cup 2's are used for track days only.

    He is essentially retired and spends most of his time on his estate. I still see him occasionally at local car shows.
  14. 7 speed stick or 8 speed auto?

    C7 Z06 - Grandstand
    I chose the 7 speed manual on our 2017, primarily for the driving enjoyment. But changing out the OEM shifter to an MGW is a must in my book. I tolerated the OEM junk in my C6 Z06 but for some reason, the same shifter was much worse in the C7 car. The new shifter feels like a bolt action...
