A new 2015 Corvette Z06 armed with the Z07 performance package is one of the most potent track weapons available. The Z07 adds carbon ceramic brake rotors for increased stopping power and those wheels are wrapped in sticky Michelin Pilot Super Sport Cup tires.
Anyone tracking these cars on a regular basis will need replacement parts, especially when it comes to two of racings most consumable items behind fuel: tires and brakes.
A user on Jalopnik’s Opposite Lock shared a quote from a Chevrolet dealer’s parts counter. Shockingly, a set of rotors, new Michelin tires and brake pads cost more than a new 2015 Chevrolet Cruze.
