Frank, I bought the column lock bypass before I got the Z. I haven't put it in yet. I am moving to Scottsdale this summer. HOT-HOT-HOT. What would you do?

If it was me?? I'm not putting one on my cars. I'll let GM pay for the tow and the rental car. I guess that's a decision you need to make on your own. My word isn't gospel. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

I have one on my C5 and one in a box for my 02' Z06, I have had 3 Z06 customers that have had their cars flat bedded to the dealer's in my area to be repaired. One guy had his exhaust bent taking the car off the flat bed, he has been waiting for the parts for about 2 months from the dealer.

Finally got time to installing mine today. Got it from Nate at XTREME. Came with detailed instructions. Made install very easy. Took about 45 minutes. The lighter adapter made it a snap.

Thanks for the great service Nate.

I don't think it can hurt to put the defeat in...but I sure don't wanna get the Z f***ed up by some tow truck jockey.

There is an interesting thread on the other forum with a reply from Lisa Stanick, asst brand manager for Corvette, about SCL.

Carl:

I read them all, so am not sure exactly where, but I believe it was corvetteforum.

I'll try to find it again, and come back with more details.

Here is the SCL info:

Corvetteforum.com under 1997-2000 Corvette Tech/Performance. The thread is titled "Steering Column Lock Concern Response from GM."

Hope this helps,

I have had 3 Zaino customers with Z06's that all had to be flat bedded, fixed the problem, I would guess not.
