    Check the inside edge of those tires. I thought mine had new tires on it only to find out they were bald on the extreme inside edges and only had maybe 2-3K miles left before they would have blown.

    A close friend had two C6's recently - both seemed pretty much perfect and he had zero issues in stock configuration that I am aware of. Once he boosted the second C6, on his first pass at the track the alternator pulley blew off and he dropped the belt. GM had an issue with this - something to do with how fast the engine revs up and down, especially in boosted applications, that causes the pulley to come loose. The replacement alternator designed to address this issue appeared to have a partial clutch setup which allowed it to slip a bit.
