How about a forum for Z06 wannabee's.
Maybe we could have a page detailing all the Z06 specific equipement that was at first called ugly and questioned, but now considered the latest rage. Then we could go on with installation instructions so these parts can be successfully installed on all the non-Z06's out there. After all, we don't want the posers to install our standard equipment wrong as it might make their cars look silly.

Let's see, we'll need instructions for:<UL TYPE=SQUARE>
[*]Z06 grills
[*]Z06 brake ducts
[*]Z06 wheels with a subsection for chrome wheels
[*]Z06 titanium exhaust
[*]LS6 fuel rail covers
[*]Z06 brake calipers
[/list]

JK of course.

CorvetteSS has some real good ideas. Actually, they are excellent suggestions.

Only thing is one of us is going to have to do the articles...

The tech tips section is there, its just not built out yet.

The Pit Road link up top is the page. This will link to online how-to's.

As for the forum stuff above, I will look in to that.

Anything else?

I think a "Z06 Addicts' Rides" (or something) page, where you could click on someone's name (listed by model year, if there are more in the future... Or by color, etc.) and see a picture/pictures of his car with a list of the mods underneath, would be swell.

This would cut down on the "need" for long signatures and/or big pics in signatures at the end of posts.

Also, it would be an invaluable source of info for all of the folks aking "Please post pics of your MY & QS Z06's for comparison," etc.

Oh, and I have NO idea what it would take/cost to do this, so I don't pretend to think that this is feasible.

Great site!

Suggestions: (I don't know how complicated these would be to implement, but I think they would enhance the forum)

1. Some sort of indicator (like the color of the folder or the flame) so that once you logged in, it would show which threads you had replied to. Similar to searching by username but would be apparent without having to do the search.

2. Currently, posts that are new since the last time a user checked in are highlighted in red. But if the last time you checked in you didn't even look at say Z06 Racing, and this time you do, there might be some posts that don't show up red, even though you never saw them as new. Maybe there could be a way to register the posts as new based on individual sections of the forum.

As I stated before, I don't know how complex these changes would be. If they aren't overly burdensome, I think they would be great.

I would like to see some pages, not messages...

How-to install your Ripper, How to ____ as WWW pages, not just messages, but pages, with images etc...

I think the area for pictures is a great start, as well as the video of track-time.. (Which I will send in a lap of Road America when I go there in may)

The how-to pages could be with How to bleed your brakes, change your brakes, Install Euro lights, Install harness belts / bars.. etc, etc, etc...

Just need to stay away from "What oil to use" for that is more of a choice than a fact, its a fact to install a ripper shifter the correct way... (although I suppose SOMEONE would have a option for that)
