    Still no HP numbers and no mention if the PP will be available with the 10 speed auto. That auto seems to work well in the new ZL1.

    The auto works better with the Camaro than with the Z06. You may be aware there is a class action law suit against GM vs the owners of the c7z06 auto tranny. Seems it overheats & puts the car in limp mode (or blows the engine). The c7z with stick seems ok for track use, but nono on the auto tranny. The law firm is one who has had some noted success vs GM on other issues, so look for a settlement.

    Doesn't the C7 Z06 have a different trans? I didn't think it was the 10 speed.

    The latest gen of Corvette "Z" cars c7z06 has (for the first time) an option of automatic or stick.

    It's 8 speed. Automatic. Lot's of issues. Sorry if I was not clear.

    The other Corvettes, base, convertible have had automatics or stick for many years.

    FYI as far as I know there are no major changes to the GT350 for 2018. It will have the current body work.

    I was especially interested in the # of different settings for the shocks, how many settings are there for the 2017 & earlier gt350?

    5, same as its been from the beginning. Normal, Sport, Track, weather and drag strip. Track mode works well on track.
