2017 C7 Corvette Z06 On Deck To Receive Cooling Improvements5
Tadge Juechter, lead Corvette engineer, stated around less than five percent of C7 Corvette Z06 owners have experienced heatsoak or overheating issues with their vehicles on the track. Nonetheless, the Corvette team is listening, and cooling improvements are inbound for the 2o17 C7 Corvette Z06.
Motor1 reports the cooling changes will be part of “continual improvements”, something Juechter’s team has placed an emphasis on. The 2017 C7 Z06 will receive a new hood with reworked cooling vents, and other unnamed changes to keep things cool on the track. He stated full updates will be detailed in the coming months.
The 2017 C7 Corvette Z06 will move into production this fall, while the first batch of 2017 C7 Corvette Grand Sports are assembled.

Sounds awesome!! Can’t wait!!!
Sadly, many of those 5%s were high profile like auto enthusiast magazine tests, many comparison tests, and it made the ZO6 look bad.
Really should not have been released without situation resolved and even worse it has taken this long to address!
Thats’ a pretty poor job on GM part to release a defective design which should of been tried and tested until it was allowed to be released to the public . They should give every corvette owner a check for their ill regard to perfection as their flag ship high performance car. If me or you would do the same thing as they did we would get locked up.. Sounds like the ignition switch scandal all over again.. Get with the program GM, step up to the plate and make this right for all the owners effected by the over heating issues..
What did they do about the valve guide problem? I fully agree with above statements.
People need to chill. I’ve driven my 2015 Z06 in 5 different track events and never had an issue. No heat-soak, no power loss, just the fastest car in my group.
