At the track it's the same ol' story with the Vettes, advantage on the straights and getting passed by hopped up Euro cars and Miata's in the corners. I still appreciate the Corvettes for what they are and bang for buck, you probably can't do any better. But after owning ///M cars, I'll probably never go back... just my opinion though.
I think your views are somewhat outdated... especially with respect to the C7 and its abilities in the "twisties". That may have been true of the C4/5 but the C7 is not even a comparable car. I don't think drawing conclusions on the C7 based on experience in cars from two generations ago is even worth while IMO.
