1985 C4 Corvette-Kart vs. 2014 Lingenfelter C7! - Roadkill Ep. 35
On this episode of Roadkill, we hack the entire body off a C4 Corvette,
cage it, and call it a race car! Freiburger and Finnegan fulfill a dream
that began four-plus years ago when they first wrote the "Vette Hack"
article for HOT ROD magazine, slicing 900 pounds of ugly fiberglass off of
a 1985 Corvette to prove that it would handle better in the autocross. Less
weight means more acceleration, better cornering, and better stopping. The
idea is proven once again here as the guys add a 350-horsepower rat-rod engine,
rebuild the trans, remove more weight, and make it rigid, safe, and stylish
with a full rollcage. Next, they head into a shootout with a 2014 Corvette
upgraded by Lingenfelter Performance Engineering with an Edelbrock blower,
Kooks headers, and Corsa Exhaust for a
wicked-sounding 640 horsepower. And then, of
course, there's the off-road mayhem. The Vette Kart rocks!
Roadkill appears every fourth Friday on the Motor Trend channel.

a quick ride, albeit a subdued ride, as he is breaking it in carefully for
the first 500 miles before its first oil change.
Watch for three start-ups, a few revs and a quick on-board ride!

Corvette racing @ 205mph or 330km/h
UPDATE: Just to prove that it's got the goods, GM has released a video of
its new supercharged Corvette stretching its legs to a massive 205mph
(330km/h) top speed.
At a time when car makers are showing off every imaginable fuel-saving
gizmo, General Motors does the math on the 6.2-litre V8 engine in its new
Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and comes up with more oomph than it expected.
The company's powertrain gurus found that the LS9 engine cranks out 476kW
(638bhp) - 20 horsepower more than the
estimates they made when GM took the covers off the ZR1 before Christmas.
Simply, the engine is rated at 76kW (103bhp) per litre of displacement or
1.7bhp per cubic inch (6.2 litres is equal to 376 cubic inches).
All that power will push the Corvette ZR1 to a top speed of more than
322km/h, says GM. And torque? The revised official figure is now 810Nm.
The key to power and torque is a Roots-type Supercharger with four-lobe rotors that sits atop
the LS9 engine. A liquid-to-air Intercooler is integrated into the Supercharger's housing.
The engine will be hand-built at GM's Performance Build Centre in suburban
Detroit, the same plant that hand-builds the LS7 V8 used in the Corvette
