Come across this disconcerting article that talks about a new issue found on the top spec model. Apparently the output of the twin turbo V8 engine is too much for the vehicles chassis and its twisting the aluminum subframe. The warp is so bad that its causing the glass covering the engine to break. No wonder Chevy has been delaying its release. https://www.carscoops.com/2019/03/20...breaks-itself/
Plexiglass done in a way that it comes off as real glass can be a solution but sure to get some negative feedback. That's the easy solution. Of course, the hard way will be to look deeper into ways to mitigate this right from the chassis... and that's just the glass.
There is a reason why Chevy has yet to announce anything official for the C8, and that's because its still very much a work in progress. Seen 1000hp engine swaps on old Supras and they never had this issue. GM needs more due diligence on their vehicles.
yes C8 is a powerful vehicle I watched a video on social media C8 was towing a truck and in another video one guy used as Car towing services. but i have driven Corvette plenty of models i am very impressed with the Corvette.
