    1966 Corvette Coupe

    Its beyond that...

    The Z06 is slightly lighter (bought 50 lbs if i remeber correctly)
    Z has lower gearing in the tranny (1-4)
    Z has a different spring rate on atleast one "axel" maybe both
    the 50 hp (depending on what years you are looking at) and the ls6 block vs ls1 block
    vents for rear brakes
    wheels
    red calipers (no better than the FRC's)
    Titanium Exhaust
    FRC's are cheaper and quite a bit rarer...

    That is all i can think of currently...
