9-Second Twin Turbo C8 Chevrolet Corvette by FuelTech

April 27th, 2021

Intending to set the World Record for Quickest C8 Corvette, Anderson Dick (founder and owner of FuelTech) showed up at the Outlaw Street Car Reunion (OSCR) at the Virginia Motorsports Park over the weekend. His car – a twin turbocharged C8 Chevrolet Corvette – is fresh off a record setting dyno run in which the maximum output for a C8 Corvette was reset (1,075whp).

A native resident of Brazil, Anderson made his way north after updating his car with a Dodson clutch kit and a set of Belak rear wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson ET Street radials. Under the hood is a 6.2-liter all-aluminum V8 engine modified with a pair of turbochargers (and all that entails). One of the most unique features of the FuelTech C8 is a totally independent auxiliary fuel system. It consists of a fuel cell, pumps, lines, injectors and a dedicated controller. Another stand-alone controller handles regulation of the turbocharger setup. Of course, the controllers are FuelTech.

With all the horses back in the barn, FuelTech had a very good day at OSCR, with several other cars winning in their respective Class.
