My trip to pick up my new car: Vehicle Motor vehicle Car Sports car Automotive design

Land vehicle Vehicle Car Sports car Corvette stingray

weather was great the first five days, then when my wife came down to meet me, the weather turned to rain, rain, and more rain. Let me tell you, those tires are definitely not made for the rain, but it made it kind of fun to drive. We still had a good time, and saw some awesome coastline. About the car: 1: The synchronization between the accelerator pedal to the throttle body is an epic GM failure, you step on the pedal, nothing happens for about a half second, then when you let off the pedal, the same effect, it's still throttling up when your foot is completely off the pedal. (There has to be some fix for this) 2: As I had expected, the stereo system was soft and mushy, I couldn't take it, and had to tear into it. added a Rockford 300-1 amp. with a JL audio tw3 8" sub. sharpened the sound right up, and is now acceptable. the old adage ( all highs, no lows, it must be Bose) truly lives on. 3: Handling, This car outhandles any previous Vette, it cruises nicely, the steering is spot-on, I can't say anything bad about that portion except!...... Brake dust, OH MY! this thing makes more brake dust than a grinding wheel. 4: Tire noise, I will be installing Hush mat to the fender wells, as the interior noise is unacceptable (on most highways)
