GM Gets Hit With A Lawsuit From Z06 Owners
Corvette Z06 owners just hit GM with a class-action lawsuit because the car performs so poorly on the track, according to Jalopnik. The suit claims that a cooling defect can put the 2015-2017 Z06 into “limp mode” after only 15 minutes on the track. What happens in “limp mode” is that power and speed is drastically reduced due to overheating issues.
The cooling system defect allegedly warps vital engine components due to high temperatures. Considering most track days last longer than 15 minutes, this is a problem for Z06 owners. Attorneys have estimated that over 30,000 2015-2017 model year Z06’s are affected by this defect. What do you think about this?
This Sunday starting at 9am there’s all new tech from the shops. In Truck Tech, the guys get to work on the ’30 Model A Ford with quick disassembly and the build up of a crate chassis including axles, suspension, springs, shocks, links and I-beam front end.
Then in PowerNation Katie’s featured ride is this 80’s IMSA GTP series inspired SuperLite Coupe. Owner Bill Phillips and painter Anthony Kutas will talk about building, painting and driving these cool kit cars. Bill received the chassis, suspension, glass and body and then he decided everything else. He opted for an LS-3 with a 6 Speed. Anthony from Charlotte Speed Shop took over the challenge of laying down the Ferrari Yellow paint. Plus it’s super comfortable to drive on the street or the track! It’s a full block of tech so make sure you tune in.
