Default RE: Suspension add-ons vs. 2006 Corvette

Let's not lose sight of the fact that there are sliding rules in categories like Koni Challenge and Grand-Am when a Mustang runs against a Porsche. Not all thing are equal like power. NASCAR also has some mandates that are old-school other than the solid axle. Like lockers and carbs.

Most of the trouble with solid axles is poor shock tuning. But in the end a solid axle just isn't as good all around a proper IRS, but way better than a poorly designed on too. They just are what they are.

In the end, I see the two cars in question here as two different types of cars. Most folks don't cross-shop the two, and I'd rather drive a pony-car for the cost factor than a Corvette myself. I think we are not comparing like cars, which is why the Mustang gets killed in magazine comparisons vs. a Vette, it's a crazy comparison to make. If you like the Vette, that's fine, and certainly wouldn't begrudge you for going that way. I work on those too, can make them damn fast as well, but they aren't as much fun in my eyes to drive.
