haha yeah I guess the deal was "I'll race you in my Ferrari if I can advertise my wheels in your video". Still cool to see. Numbers are one thing, but seeing a quick car get beat by a quicker car brings a more visual perspective.

It does. Had a feeling that the Tesla was gonna win, but I was still surprised by how much the Ferrari lost. :))

It's funny reading the YT comments where all these people are calling the Ferrari slow. Like damn, it's not slow by any stretch of the imagination. It'll smash most street cars out today, the Tesla was just that much more brutal. Well to be fair, everything looks slower on video but still..

Mid-rear engined C8 Corvette code-name "Zerv" CAD files leaked from GM.






Corvette Forum:
These are straight up CAD images from the mid-engine car. This is your C8, people.
Somebody is gonna get so fired over this. Give it 2 hours, this will be all over Jalopnik, Autoblog, and others.

From the images:

-Coil springs (FINALLY).
-Magshocks (or spool valve, either way, fancy shocks).
-Upper front arms look to be similar to C5/6/7 with trunions.
-Lower front arms look to be similar to C5/6/7 with camber eccentrics.
-Rear subframe is HUGE and is a very strange mix of cast parts and welded tube. Can't tell if it's welded or bolted together in the middle.
-Engine is an LT1.
-Looks like factory shorty headers instead of cast manifolds.
-Engine has alternator relocated.
-Not sure what the upper-right accessory pulley is for. Upper left is water pump, lower right is AC.
-Oil filter looks easy to get to.
-Oil cooler clearly shown above filter.
-Half-shafts look to be the "bolt on flange" style (no draining trans to remove shafts).
-That transaxle is BEEFY. Like, dear god. Can't tell if it's auto or manual. If I had to wager, that's the automatic (guessing from shape of bottom of trans and what looks to be coolers hanging around it).
-Giant flat space above transaxle is more than likely for intake box/filter.
-No turbos shown.
-Frame looks to be similar to C5/6/7 with giant hydroformed rails (probably still aluminum). Disappointing. I was hoping for proper unibody. Hopefully with a fixed roof it'll be stiffer.
-Brake rotors are 1 piece. Calipers are MASSIVE.
-Side skirts are mechanically fastened just like C5/6/7. Still going to be horrendously expensive to fix if damaged.
-Brake ducts clearly shown on front.

Guarantee that Tadge is fighting some fires right now.

Did they leak the 3d model, too? :D
I am sure there are people on here that would want it. :))
