This is the exact same car that set the half-mile top-speed world record (229 mph) during the Slipstream Racing event. With the final drive gear ratio adjusted appropriately, the ‘Vette is now ready to tackle the competition (in the eighth-mile) during Street Car Takeover (SCT) Atlanta.
Competing in the Outlaw Class, this Chevy would face very stiff competition as some of the fastest drag cars in the nation were on hand at the Atlanta Dragway in Commerce, Georgia.
This C5 Corvette is running a Brian Tooley Racing built 388 cubic-inch small block with a set of 7675 turbochargers. The transmission is a hybrid RPM Powerglide that puts the ponies to the pavement and makes it look easy. The combination is making 1,700whp on 36 psi of boost (it can go as high as 40 psi).
Check out all the action from SCT Atlanta. This is an amazing car with a highly skilled crew.
