Awaiting track times from tracks like Laguna, VIR, Nurburgring.... driven by pros and I’m confident this sports car is going to demolish a lot of some much more lofty sports cars just as Corvette has in the past but probably more so now with this leap forward.
A couple early questionable reviews complaining about understeer and the such but once the cars hit the tracks in earnest I think a lot of these ‘tests’ with preproduction cars driven by who knows who, will go by the wayside.

Jason Cammisa gave some Q&A directly to forum members. Worth a read if you’re interested in the C8.

And the “Jason Cammisa’s a f**king hack” comments from fanboiz in 3...2...1...

Not sure why people are all worked up over the understeer things. There are other things though are worth talking about but don't seem to get the proper attentions. The FPC V8 will go along way fixing some of the short comings.

Seems like a fair assessment. Still would take a C8 over C7 any day of the week. Like how he mentions the GT4 was an understeering mess when it arrived in the US and went on to be a classic with some tweaks.

NA FPC Z06 will be a banger, instant classic if true. Will be last of a dying breed.

There are some guys that look at what a sports cars does on the track, hard cold facts and some guys like to listen to guys personal opinions on a new car, feelings and they vary from person to person and most often show bias. Just looking at these breaking performance numbers this first run the C8 shows that it’s going to run with big dogs. It’s going to hurt some feelings of those with other sports cars and even some with a Corvette prior generation, even right here on this site. That’s the way it always will be.

To about 1% of Corvette owners who track the cars. The rest will spend most of their time on the golf courts. Same for 911 owners by the way.

You spend a pretty good amount of time here discussing sports cars and track times so which one are you?
We have basketball courts, tennis courts but I believe the term is golf course.
I don’t golf, a good walk spoiled. I do track my Corvette on occasion though. Don’t know what relevance your statement is anyway, one doesn’t need to helmet up and race their cars to enjoy a fast, well handling sports car.
