Street Racing: Corvette Chaos

July 1st, 2015

Street Race Corvette ChaosWho brings their car to a street race on a trailer? Someone who has come from one state away to take your cookies – that’s who. This video brings you a couple of highly modified late model (a 2001 and a 2009 model) Corvettes as they square off on the streets in an epic battle of supercharger versus nitrous.

The “out-of-towner” sports a 2009 Corvette Z06 with a built 408-cubic-inch LSX engine, a YSI Vortech supercharger set at 18psi, and an EFI 128 tuner. It is running E98 fuel and riding on Mickey Thompson E/T rubber wrapped around 15-inch Weld wheels. The “home town hero” is driving his 2001 C5 Corvette with a set of new 4.10 final drive gears helping him to come out of the hole quickly. He also has a 408-cubic-inch mill with PRC 237 cylinder heads, a Texas Giant camshaft, and a 200-shot of nitrous (although it wasn’t used on these runs). Those are drag radials on the rear.
