    Re: Mid-Engine Debate 981/982 or C8

    I was under the impression the inert substrate is for the Speedster. The mid engine cars get the full blown filters.

    Yeah agreed.

    I am in no doubt that the Corvette will be a fantastic machine. Bang for the buck it can't be beat. I don't think the price jump for the GT4/Spyder is equal to the performance...

    I am not ordering it because

    - price is ridiculous
    - Already have a Spyder
    - 10 sec faster around the ring is nothing because the ring has been smoothed over a lot and and tire compounds have...

    That description pretty much nails it. That is what I experience as well. There's no traction control light flashing. So definitely it's not the TC.
