Buddy of mine bought a CE c4 off the orig owner this summer. I was never a huge fan of the c4 till I got to spend some time with it and now I want one to compliment my c6z.

Anyone that doesn’t like the C4 is an idiot. The C4 ZR1 is on another level.

They are going to explode in value.

Curious what OP thinks of chassis flex and if he does anything to remedy it.

I'm a big fan of the c4 but havn't driven one in ages. The lasting impression I have is the chassis being loose.

It's pretty good until you take the targa panel off. Then you have a little cowl shake if going over railroad tracks. The convertible combats this by have an additional X-frame underneath the car. But as always in the aftermarket, there are harness bars, 4 point bars and shock tower bar for the front.

But if you are truly nuts and racing, this is what you do.

The C4 is getting more popular by the day.
I've been in a few really quick examples, but the do require some work to get them to handle very well.

Many think the platform is best to just leave as stock, maintain it properly and drive it like GM intended on the street.
The people I get along with are the ones who modify them properly and have fun on track.

The C4 is incredibly sensitive to bushings, alignment settings and choosing your way to control the rear suspension. There are many solutions for the rear suspension and I am no expert, but it can be done. Controlling the camber change and weight transfer is key.

Great car. Contrats.

Congrats on the new addition to the collection. Very cool.

Would love an Aqua C4 targa top with the "sawblade" wheels (looks like a turbine to me). Nearly had one as my first car but got the Jeep instead. I'm sure I would have killed myself in one at the time, but would love to have one now. Still hopeful to one day find one in immaculate condition when the budget is ready. It's my high-school "one that got away" :rofl:

Love this color.

My husband's best friend (who married my sister so he is also my BIL) had a green C4 Z with the sawblades when I met him. He often had the targa.top off and during one particular spirited afternoon, he got pulled over by our city PD. While he was waiting to receive his ticket, a dove shit right on his hat/shoulder. He later told us it felt like the most C4 Corvette driver thing ever.

The officer came back, saw the immense amount of shit all over him/the car and proceeded to write him a warning instead.

I've heard people say "a bird shitting on you is good luck" but this is the first time it's made sense :rofl:

:bigthumb:invaluable info.. Sounds like my gto. The car was always in need of a fresh alignment despite replacing the entire suspension.
