    Haven't heard anyone discussing if the C8 will get the spectacular mileage that does the C7. Any of you guys heard anything?

    Remove the front license plate. This solved my "sometimes 220°" operation. Haven't exceeded 180° since.

    General Discussion
    This maybe is not a Corvette question but I know you geniuses know the answer !! My AGM battery has a 70AH rating. My cooler draws 40W DC. If my calks are correct I can only run the cooler 20 hours before the battery will be depleted? I=P/E. (40/12-3.4A) 70/20 = 3.4A Am I correct? If this...

    Also good to use if you leave the car occupied and make a grocery stop. Learned this the hard way when I left my wife in the car and happily reading a book. Until she moved to turn a page!!!!

  15. Replaced Chrome Stingray with Black

    General Discussion
    Never thought I'd have the chutzpah to do this myself. Bought the emblems on eBay for $10/2. Viewed a you tube video. And "did it my way". On my white Vette, I prefer carbon fiber or black accents.
