Here are some other pics from the day down at Sebring:

C6 Z in Victory Red - This red is much better than the original Precision Red.


C6 Z in Black - this is one mean looking car...


C6 Z Rear Frame Section - notice how the mufflers are tucked up under the rear compartment, no more cneter well...


Rear Tire - The pic does not do justice to how big this tire really is...


Dry Sump Oil Resevior - this is the first pic of this I have seen on the net.


Rear Brake Duct - very "Mustang-looking" to me...


Front Frame Section:


Front Duct - this is pretty large...


Actual Cupholders - Yes its plural, and they will hold a 20 oz. bottle...


Center Frame Section Driver Side


Center Frame Section - Passenger Side


Dave Hill discussing the new Z...


Actually got to sit in the new Z (the black one), and the seats are much better than the C5 seats, but no belt pass thru, asked Dave Hill about that and he said they will be looking into offering seats with pass thru's as an accessory in the future, but could not specify when that might be.

The shifter is very much like an aftermarket Hurst, pretty notchy, short throws, it felt really nice. The clutch was very light and easy, not sure how it will hold up at the strip, but for daily driving it will be great. The dry sump resevior will hold 8 quarts of ooil, and the dipstick actually looks like you might be able to get a reading, no silly twisted dipstick...

I notice we didn't have the guts to show Dave Hill's pants this time!!

Seriously though, looking at the frame cutaway, and especially the shock mounts; it appears there are areas around the rear shock mount that could use some additional welding and possibly some gussetting. This might be useful if considering Coilovers.
