November 20th, 2020

Late Model Racecraft (LMR) is quietly producing some of the baddest Chevy street cars through high-performance aftermarket modification and tuning. Today, these guys are taking one of their latest project cars out for some real-world tuning. Let’s see what happens when a fellow citizen on a sport bike issues a friendly challenge. The car is a C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The Z06 is powered by a 6.2-liter supercharged V8 capable of producing 650hp and 650 lb.-ft. of torque.

October 14th, 2020

Late Model Racecraft – a leading Corvette modification firm located in the Houston, Texas area – is attempting something a bit different with this build. Let’s have a look. It all begins with a C7 Chevrolet Corvette Z06. The Z06 package features an all-aluminum 6.2-liter supercharged V8 engine that can churn out 650hp.

Twin Turbo Corvette is World’s Quickest C7

January 28th, 2020

I can remember a time, not very long ago, when power adders were a rarity. If you encountered a fellow racer with a turbocharger, a supercharger or even nitrous, it was something that was remembered. Today, everybody has a power adder. They usually have multiple power adders, in fact. I mean, who doesn’t need a kit of nitrous to get out of the hole, a little turbo to scroll you to the big turbo and a big turbo to get you across the finish line? That’s racing in the 21st Century. Our feature car; a beauty of a Chevrolet Corvette Read More

N/A Vette Z06 Takes on Ninja ZX14 – Street Hits

December 18th, 2019

Once in a while, it’s refreshing to see a car that is built without power-adders. Turbochargers, superchargers and nitrous are great, but nothing accelerates quite like an engine built with the sole purpose of producing horsepower. In today’s environment of economical turbo and super chargers, this all-motor ‘Vette is making his mark. The 2009 Chevrolet Corvette C6 Z06 has a (LS7) 7.0-liter engine. Internals are stock except for Diamond (14:1) pistons. Cylinder heads, camshaft, intake manifold and fuel rail are all Frankenstein. Fuel injectors are by FIC and the cold air intake is a Vararam. Exhaust headers are Kooks 2-inch Read More

Likewise, the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 represents the entire GM lineage. It has a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 that makes 638hp and weighs 3333-pounds. Read More

Nitrous Corvette Z06 vs. Dodge Demon Challenger

September 30th, 2018

by: Adam Yacoby There is a battle brewing on the East Coast. Seems that a car called the Demon is building quite a reputation and Corvette owners in Lobster Land don’t like it even a little bit. Word is that some of these Demons are going to be competing at Cecil County Dragway. Maybe – just maybe – some of these ‘Vette owners will show up, as well. Let’s have a look. Sure enough, there’s a pretty blue Chevy Corvette now. The C6 Z06 is equipped with a stock bottom end LS7 (7.0-liter V8). On top are a set of Read More
