BE CAREFUL! Those rears grenade with hop. I'm in the process of changing mine now. Shocks and tires help. Do a search on corvette forum... lots has been said.

Some guys are running 17" drag radials to help with this issue, for drag racing the C6 Z06. Congrats on the car.

QA1 Adjustable rear shocks. Also let some air out of the runflats. About 25 psi cold. Allows the tire to flex a little more. Might save your output shaft as well. Don

You are waisting your time if it is below 50 degrees. Wait until spring. Should be better. Don
