C6 with Z51

2005 Chevrolet Corvette 2dr Coupe (6.0L 8cyl 6M)
Review
I love the exterior styling and after a year the car still gets loads of positive comments at the gas station etc. I have done four track schools in the car and have been generally disappointed with the performance. The automatic transmission will shift at inopportune times and even with the traction control set in the "Performance" mode the car feels rather unbalanced when going through a off camber down hill which causes the tranny to hunt for a gear. The Z51 suspension along with the run flat tires gives a very harsh freeway ride which becomes punishing after about two hours on the road. The transmission puts out loads of heat and the center console can toast your right leg.
Favorite Features
The 400 HP engine is great. Chevy should put this engine in a 1500 pickup and they would have a Ford Lightning or Dodge SRT10 fighter.
Suggested Improvements
Increase heat protection from transmission. Seats need slots in the seat back as on past Vette's so 4 or 5 point harnesses can be installed. Make standard tires with a small inflation kit an option for better handling and ride.
