1970 Corvette ZR1 thru the gears
A quick blast thru the gears with an all-original 1970 ZR1. The ZR1 was
Zora Duntov's last high-compression Corvette designed specifically for SCCA
class B racing. The ZR1 Special Purpose Engine Package consisted of the
350/370hp LT1 solid lifter engine stuffed into an L88 prepped chassis which
includes: M22 HD 4spd, F41 springs, shocks & spindle struts, HD Aluminum
Radiator, Lightweight flywheel/clutch combo, J50/J56 Dual pin front brake
calipers, HD Posi-Traction (4.56:1 in this case), as well as high-torque
starter. ZR1's could not be ordered with a radio, or power accessories.
Deluxe interior and tilt/tele column were the only "options" permitted. The
ZR1 was the last production Chevrolet to be sold with the warning: "Not
recommended for normal driving situations."
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.
