If you put a big V8 in it, however, it would need to have the same transmission setup from the Vette, otherwise it would be a rock in the front with almost no weight in the rear. Not that power isn't important, but good handling, especially in a small roadster, is even more important.

Still even. the Ls motors are relativly light compared to most v8's. But obviously not as light as the eco. Still i bet it would ad between 300-500lbs more. I would guess that the sky pretty even weight distribution because the power hardtop retracting roof adds weight. So v8-rearwheel drive would maybe make it a 60/40 split. Not suer im no engineer.. yet. But just to take in to consideration.

w/e you feel like building it to do

id rather the solstice dut to the fact if 5k cheaper and you can put the 5k into the car and make it faster than the sky

solstice has much smoother shape. i hate the progressive futuristic shapes of the sky. plus i think the solstice looks a little aston martin like. make me feel rich.
