Message from the President

Here we are, spring has sprung, the groundhog did not see his shadow, all the trees are in full bloom, and the robins have arrived.  The winter cold has left us but the rain seems to persist but I am sure once it is gone and summer arrives we will wish we had a little of it then to keep the grass green.  Daylight Savings Time has now arrived and we lose an hour but on the bright side it gives us more daylight for cruises.  Now is the time to check the batteries on the battery tenders and check the pressure in the tires to get ready to roll once the rain subsides.  We already have cruises planned for March, April and May with locations identified for future cruises once we decide what month to put them in.  If you have any suggestions for trips be sure and send them to us so we can try and get them scheduled later this year.  Don’t forget our Mississippi Corvette Classic will be upon us before you know it.  Now is the time to get out and get those sponsors and silent auction items.

Now for new Corvette info:

Chevrolet has introduced the 2017 Corvette Grand Sport at the Geneva Motor Show. Part Corvette Stingray, part Corvette Z06, it may be more appealing than both. The middle child of the ‘Vette lineup combines the Stingray’s 460 horsepower naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V-8 powertrain with body and chassis refinements cribbed from the top-of-the-line, somewhat over-the-top 650-horsepower, supercharged Z06.  These include its grille, wide rear fenders, high performance Brembo brakes, standard magnetic ride control suspension and computer-controlled limited slip differential.

Corvette Forum reports that after decades of rumors, speculation, and concepts, they have it on good authority from an unnamed source that GM is poised to pull the trigger on a mid-engine Corvette.  The source says the automaker is already several years into the mid-engine Corvette project, and is nipping at the point of no return. Barring some dramatic developments, we’ll see something from Chevy targeted against the Ford GT sooner than later.

 

The car is likely in validation as we speak.  Expect GM to be selective among Chevy stores authorized to sell and service a mid-engine Corvette. The company will select dealers based on the familiar metrics of location, sales volume, relationship, quality of facilities and customer service record. You can guess that the Hendrick organization will be one of the first dealerships chosen.

Tech Tips

101 ways to make your Corvette faster, easier to work on, and make the details shine

1. THE BIG SQUEEZE

When considering the compression ratio for a new Corvette normally aspirated engine and factoring in today's gasoline octane, there aresome variables you should consider. Here's the rundown:

*  A higher compression ratio requires higher-octane fuel

*  More spark advance requires higher-octane fuel

*  Lower humidity requires higher- octane fuel

*  Higher altitude allows the use of lower octane

*  Leaning of the air/fuel ratio requires the use of higher octane
