Sorry Tom, heavy fog on the beach prevented any decent scenery photos.

My experiences include Spring Mountain Advanced Driving School lvl 1 and lvl 2 training,
and track time in C5 Z06s, C6 Z51s, C6 Z06s.

I am offering to field questions / comments about the Grand Sport.
I will not compare opinions with Motor Trend or Car and Driver editors that put 100 miles in a GS. I put 5,000 miles in one.

Yes, the GS weighs about 130 pounds more than the Z06.
That is about the weight of a tank of gas, or carrying a passenger.

Yes, the GS stops like a Z06 (as expected). Bad brake dusting, easy to fix.
Noticable difference from my recent Z51 which had Baer Eradispeed +2s.

No, I cannot tell the difference between 3.9, 4.0, and 4.2 seconds.
It is academic, and of little real world value.

For now, here is a thread to unload about the Grand Sport on, and to get some real world opinion.

BYOB

What about that brake dusting? I just got over 1300 miles on my GS Coupe and the brake dust is driving me crazy. Didn't have it that bad on my 07 Base Coupe

Yours seems to have proven invisible thus far.
