I like my QS Z06 color. It would be my first choice regardless. But, why the limit on color selection for the Z06? Do the non-Z06 colors become unstable under LS6 WOT, or melt at over 170 MPH? I saw nothing at the factory to indicate why the Z06 could not be sprayed Pewter or Mag Red. Perhaps the other four colors weigh more? Anyone know for sure or have an educated guess.

The only reason is to limit demand. They de-contented the FRC's for the same reason. No Auto tranny, no telescoping wheel, etc. I don't think it worked though as the Z06 is selling much better than anticipated.

Trumper, ya hit the nail on the head!! I also hear that you get a 5% decrease in horsies with the other paint. /ubb/smilies/eek.gif Seems their molecules move slower. LOL /ubb/smilies/tongue.gif

Trumper .. You are correct. And of course Torch Red is worth at least 5hp and 5 MPH more than the other colors /ubb/smilies/biggrin.gif

I think that if you are all true Corvette enthusiasts.....You would be blinded of the true color of the car...the sheer love for the beast should make them all the same in your eyes....beautiful~!

Now what color is your Z06???? /ubb/smilies/biggrin.gif hmmmmmm???

All Corvettes are Red, unless you want to be different. Then you order the color you like and you become an individual. /ubb/smilies/biggrin.gif
