    Thanks for all the comments guys. I’m Sam the guy doing the driving. I have seen a lot of comments of why do in the wet? Conditions are irrelevant if both the cars are in the same conditions. The wet is an absolutely amazing challenge and also shows the difference in chassis dynamics. When a car is under load it behaves totally different in the wet to the Dry.

    A couple
    Of comments about me missing apex’s 😂 I was infact taking apex’s but they were what is commonly known as the wet line. We take a wider line to reduce the amount of steering angle which let’s the front wheels rotate more freely. Both cars were awesome and both had pros and cons as do all the cars I drive. Opinions are just that and it’s one persons preference and perspective of the car they are driving. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have 👍

      Why did you keep checking your rear view mirror in the drag race? Also, your concentrating face is too good!

      That dct performed extremely well, what would be your choice for a small low speed track as far as response from the gear boxes? Since they’re so closely tuned. I’m no where near affording a new M base let alone a comp package, but there are some serious options out there I’m thinking about. Kind of done with the adjustable bias awd or 2 way rear drive cars. Gearing is a night mare and over building with big turbos kill any powerband. These seem to be right on where it would do wonders for my local courses

                              This carwow show is an absolute joke and always ge5s set up to be bias, the ONLY reason the m2 was slower in a straight and on the track is because you guys used the manual version, and I know you guys know that yet you did not mention how much slower a manual is to a dct

                                                    You can tune an M2 comp to be just as fast as the M4. It has the same engine and is much cheaper

Do they hamstring the 2 just so the big brother isn’t embarrassed? Are there other reasons for the 4 being faster. I would think the transmission. I understand the stability with longer wheel base.

                                                                            I have heard more and more about the Germans using cheap plastic pieces in their cars that are in fact despite being cheap expensive to replace and maintain. German performance cars seem great fun (I’ve only ever driven an E36 M-3) and been in a v10 m5 driven fast. That M5 just had brakes and tires done and something else small and it cost half of what my brand new GT Elantra N line cost.

                                                                            I would like to own a German performance car but I can’t get past the cost. Not so much the cost of entry. I just expect that an expensive (German engineered car that you pay up front for should be more stout and reliable over time , not less).

                                                                            I can understand using cheap plastic bits to increase profitability and perhaps even weight but I can’t figure being charged when the parts fail what they want. For most things, you pay more up front but pay less on the back end. It doesn’t seem very German to build things this way.

                                                                            I am hoping the new C8 has the aspects of American car design I like (in regards to V8 performance cars) like simple , lightweight , very durable and efficient engines. Good reliability (again certain cars like Corvette , Camaro and some full sized cars), inexpensive service and maintenance and inexpensive OEM and after market parts if shit does break or wears out. Coupled with nice interiors materials and design (C8 looks as good as Germans now and I ACTUALLY DONT MIND “Some” Hard Plastic as I find it can hold up better then other materials in certain instances. I have noticed that BMW interiors don’t actually always wear very well for such a “premium brand”.

                                                                            I am interested to see how the C8 compares to cars like this, the M4 is certainly similar in $ and I don’t buy the 2 seat vs 4 argument as if I bought the M2 I wouldn’t care if it had rear seat delete and would never use them.

                                                                            I think the C8 (could be wrong) will beat both these cars in every metric as well as a similarly priced 911 except for perhaps some less expensive interior materials used which again I don’t really care about. I as long as the interior is “designed well” with nice material in key spots then I will happily take the lower price.

                                                                            If the C8 is as good as it appears and as I predict will be much less expensive to own and won’t have insane costs to keep running well past 50-100,000 miles which is not a problem with previous GM cars of this type. Will this force other manufacturers like Merc, BMW, Audi, and Porsche (certainly VW has very poor image for reliability and cost in the U.S. For a non premium brand) to up their game and stop pinching pennies with poorly made plastic pieces and stop over charging?

                                                                            I know Porsche’s have the HIGHEST markup/profit margin then ANY other major MFG and I heard a high level Porsche executive say they could charge 1/2 the price for 911s and other cars and make the same or more profit but they price them high for exclusivity and rich people prefer exclusivity over value. Will the C8 change any of this? It appears GM has proved that it is more then price that makes a great performance car/super car. We will have to wait and see how good the product is. I think like C7, that was praised even by euro car journalists, C8 will be an even further JUMP forward and shake things up and force other MFGs to react. I hope so. I do like german cars very much but the ACTUAL GERMAN PART of my brain which is rather pragmatic can’t abide certain aspects of the costs and reliability issues no matter how “well designed” and the performance.

                                                                            I think the C8 will sell EXTREMELY well and siphon sales from other makes to people who would NEVER had even contemplated a GM car. I hope the bean counters figure out that spending money , making a great product and offering fair pricing and cost of ownership can be a model for profit.

                                                                            I am MOST interested how many new C8 consumers will be people who drove Porsche’s . I don’t think previous corvette owners will shy away (they will buy even more) but I hope many others buy as well forcing other MFGs to react.
