Re: The engine made it so expensive. --- Grip shows how well the car is capable of handling... --- No, grip shows how able the car is to hold onto the road. Handling is about how well a car can handle corners. Grip is one element of course but there are a lot of others - like whether the car oversteers or understeers, how controllable the rear-end is when it starts to slide, etc... --- Im getting sick of you calling the Corvette a "Detroit car" its made Bowling Green Kentucky, not all American cars are made in Detroit... --- Yeah, and Honda has a plant in Alabama. What's your point? In the meantime, GM's corporate headquarters is still in Detroit, right?
