Won't be able to watch these till I get home. But if you have time, watch and comment.


Watch as we take a normal C6 Corvette and turn it into a fire breathing 750 hp full on race car.

Let us know what you guys think!

The Corvette is really coming together now that we are in final assembly.

Here you can see the KSport air jacks.

The plumbing for the jacks.


The hard lines.

We also have teamed up with Aimsports for our data logging and display needs. The Carbon panel will be used to mount the Aimsports display.

We also finalized the KSport hydro ebrake assembly, steering column, and seating position.

Since the car is going to be a 10% matte black base coat we popped the headlights in the over at 220 degrees for 25 minutes to melt the glue and separate the lenses. We will then paint the silver part black.

Finally the steering system is complete.


The guys over at RPM Transmission are really helpful. They sent over the parts to upgrade the 08 Z06 differential to that of the new ZR1. We will be assembling the new diff with the added carbon plates, springs, and sliders. We have opted to not go with a OS Giken unit at this point.

Before the body went off to paint we mounted up the LG Front Splitter. The fit is perfect on all the LG Body parts!

Here is the GT04XD dual disc clutch we will be using in the Vette. Exedy makes the best clutches on the market. The amount of engineering that goes into each of their clutches is what makes them the best. We can run the whole season on 1 and never have to worry about the durability.
