I have found a safe place to run my Z06 up to 140-150 speeds. When I am up above 140 I get the wind noise blast of air on my window side as the speed pulls a crack open. My friend does not in the same conditions. BTW our vettes sound like jet airliners at that speed with the air slipping over them. I have read that GM tells their service techs to put silicon caulk under the weather strip. Any tips on that or will bending that little metal glass stop usually fix the problem if I push it more. Any help appreciated.... staying under 140 not an option.

<<< Mine did the same thing--kinda of scary when it just blew out the first time. I adjusted the tip in tighter and had dealer do the TSB thats out on the additional caulking thats used on FRC only. Still lots of wind noise at speed but does not pop out.

I had my Z06 up pass +142 mph on the way to Daytona Rolex 24 Hours on Hwy I10 in Fla. No problem with the window, I think that you can adjust that "blow out clip" on the window and it should take care of the problem, if not dealer may have to adjust the window tilt.

Hey there,
You can try one of 2 things to stop this occurance during a high speed run.
#1 Tape the cowl vent at the base of the windshield, where the fresh air goes into the air box.
#2 You can remove the left rear trim panel, and this will allow all the pressure to have a straight path out of the vehicle, via the cabin vent.
Best, c4c5
