Yeah, I think that's out of the question these days with all the added technology and safety features.. Even the C7 Z06 comes in at a portly 3619 lbs. :sad:

Sorry, I didn't mean to imply that was a bad idea.. Admittedly, I'm far from an alignment expert. My comment was based on what lobuxracer said about the range for "factory specs", and my own...
