It will all be figured out in a few years one way or another, right on time for me to be that gray haired 60 something year old man driving a Corvette stereotype. Love it when a plan comes together
The good thing about becoming the 60 something is that 60 somethings donít give a shit what punks think.

Indeed.

The latest rub in the generation wars is younger types snidely saying "OK Boomer!" to dismiss an older worker. They really can't do that in the workplace as Boomers are a protected class under age discrimination laws.

We Boomers are such dicks

As far as cooling issues go, it shouldn't be an issue. One of the reasons Chevy went (finally) to the true mid-engine design is for heat exchanger area. The front engine design was limited in cooling area, because you can only put the radiators in the front of the car. Well, you could have giant radiators in the front, but then you'd have a F150 sized grille. Not ideal for a Corvette.

With the mid-engine design, the occupants (and their doors) are further forward, leaving space for radiators on the sides of the car. That nearly doubles the area for cooling. Problem solved.

IIRC the base has 2 radiators (one each side-front), and the Z51 adds another in the rear.
