C5 Squirrely, is this normal and why
I have had 3 1962 4 speed Corvettes and 1 1964 Corvette, gears 4.11 to 4.56, all had posi, posi was working, off the line straight as an arrow, 2 nice black stripes, why is my 2001, 6 speed so squirrely when getting off the line? Are they all like that, running Michelin run flats sport tires,
Gone but not forgotten
I'm Not A Expert...But Here's Some Thoughts
1. Make sure the "traction control system is off.
2. Don't leave the line at more than 3,000 rpm unless you have a line lock.
3. Don't expect a great hook-up with those run flats (they're hard as a brick).
2001 Quicksilver Lingenfelter Vert. 6 Spd, PFADT Coilovers & Sways, Kooks LT Headers, high flow cats, X-pipe, Borla Stingers - 469 RWHP, 455 RWTQ.
4. Don't expect to drive a C5 or a C6 like you would a C1, C2, C3 or a C4.
5. You will drive your C5 much different after you buy a new set of Michelin run flats sport tires for the rear.
C6 has been to 20 states, 49K miles and counting... slowly, more fun driving the '64 and the '72.
6.my vette gets squirrely too-when I lay into it!I had it aimed straight?
