Dave Hill will be conducting a seminar at the C5 Registry Birthday Bash next Saturday in the Chevrolet Theater in the NCM. The seminar starts at 11:30am, and the seats go fast, so arrive early.

Dave usually allows time to answer a few questions. I plan on being there and will be glad to ask Dave a question from those of you unable to attend....just reply to this thread.

If you saw the answers to questions he gave over on the CF, you wouldn't waste your time on this. Totally mouthed the corporate line (which was expected so I don't know why I'm disappionted - I got what I expected).

ZIPPY............

PLEASE!! Ask Dave Hill if the Modified Red interior CAN be ordered in 2002 for the Millennium Yellow Z06 & the Electron Blue? Man this has been a bummer of a last few days when I was informed it may not be an option!! I would greatly appreciate it and I will owe you one!!!:)

Again on the oil thing ask him VERY SPECIFICALLY when the build date was that reflects the change order on the assembly line to correct the problem so that some of us can begin to feel we are NOT holding a hand grenade with the pin pulled.

I can give you a quick class on assertiveness if you need one.......

ZMan...from what I've heard...you CAN order the Mod interior with MY & EB, but Chevy just doesn't recommend those combinations.

Jason------I am crossing fingers you are 100% correct!! I have waited nearly a year with a deposit down for a MY w/M/R interior!!
thanks...zman

Can you ask the expected date of the sequential stick shift manual option for the Corvette.

Ferrari, Alfa Romeo, Aston Martin, and even BMW will have a second generation as standard on the 2nd year of production for the M3.

(The M3 Sequential shifting 6 speed will be available at no extra cost and from the BMW information site..this will become standard fare with standard 6 speed available as a no cost option)

http://www.bmwworld.com/models/config/m3_smg.htm

Please make sure he understands I'm not talking manumatic torque convertor automatic transmissions..like Porsches tiptronic.

Let him know we want 250 millisecond shifts.

TIA

How about, if you could ask what 'actual' changes were done to separate the '02 from the '01? Is it actually a revised airbox, bigger MAF? How much was the rear spring rate increased, and Rear shock valving? How much bigger is the '02 Bar, than '01?

Then... WHY are there so many suspension changes after only 1 year? How 'well thought out' was the '01 Z-06!!

Sorry... got carried away... I think the first paragraph would be great though!

Zippy, how about this:
Will the 2002 Z06 finally manage a 4.0 second 0-60? /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif

Zipper,

How about this.....

Will the Z06 model be offered in 2004 with the C-6?

History has showed that the high performance models were offered for only a few years at a time.

Great questions guys!!!

Yes, I know from experience that Dave is excellent at answering questions in a "politically/business correct" manner, and I respect his skill at this.....I will wait and see what others ask, and them try to ask what has not been asked.

Zippy,

I would assume you are going to precede at LEAST one question like:

"Rumor on Z06vette.com has it....."

Right?

I like the Stainless Steel Screens in the Front Air Inlets and in the Rear Brake Duct openings. If we are using them there why wouldn't they be available for the Front Brake Duct openings as well? Can we get some made?

Also, not only just for styling but for cooling and concurrent with the theme lets open up the 2 louvers in the lower rear Fascia and put screens in there as well. we could also put them in the side vents as well. Maybe I should patent this idea and go aftermarket with it!

If Chevy won't do it, who is the supplier for the screens?

Make a special edition Z06 with 440 -450 HP to beat the Viper. It really wouldn't be all
that hard for GM to do AND im sure the extra $$ they would charge would more than make up for engine changes....Just a thought

I vote for this question as well.
