Very surprised, when looking at the April, 2014 issue of Magazine Corvette, to read the results of their comparative review of three StingRay convertibles, each with a different factory suspension package. Remember the different debates, including on this forum, whether the Z-51 with MSRC could, when set in the tour setting, have a softer ride than the vase suspension. Here's their testing results:
magazinecorvette said:Ordering MSRC along with Z-51 is the ultimate no-brainer. First, it offers better ride than the base suspension. Second, it absorbs bumps better than either the base or FE3 (Z-51 without MSRC) suspension. Third, its stiffness varies both on the Driver's Mode Selector positioning -- soft in Tour, firm in Track -- and what the road underneath is doing.
