    Not for critique, just wanted to share this beast with the gear heads on here. My buddy took an 08 Z06 and transformed it into this wide body monster. The paint scheme is a directly from the corvette Le Mans car. The Forgiato rims and Nitto Invo tires are 13 inches wide in the rear, 11 up front. At the heart is a bored over, cammed and pro charged Z06 engine with headers and full exhaust. Dyno tuned and its pushing over 650 HP to the rear wheels. 0-60 in 3.2 seconds. Hoping to get some real pictures next track day.

    I'd think faster than 3.2 seconds to 60mph unless traction is a serious issue even with those tires. I'd like to see it launch. Has it run the 1/4? I'd love to see a slip. Good looking ride for all out race look.

    The 0-60 time is a consistent time. Sometimes faster, sometimes slower. He said he ran the quarter one time and hit low 11's although I wasn't there to see it. The car is quick, I can attest to that, but the true beauty of this car is the amount of attention it receives. Everywhere it goes, gas stations, parking lots, it draws a small crowd. Just riding down the street you look around and EVERYONE is looking at the car. Ill get some better shots and maybe a few short videos soon. The car is really dirty right now and needs a few little touch ups to be perfect.

    Low to mid 11's I'd expect as I was running 11.34 with 625rwhp in an extended cab 4x4. I would've thought the Vette much faster. You did shout out to the gearheads :D

    It won't let me look at your Facebook... I agree this car should've been faster in the 1/4, and he even admits it took him a while to learn how to control the power and put it down properly. Maybe after a few more months of driving he will try again and see where it stands.

    Don't get me wrong. I absolutely love Corvettes, but the big issue with them (especially the bigger horsepower Z06/ZR-1 models) is there is so much power and so little weight that it takes an extremely skilled driver to get the best out of them especially if you're doing 1/4 mile work.

    This is actually one of the reasons I've always loved the Corvette as it's one of the very few true "drivers cars" left. Everyone (including the new C7 Vette's) are going all electronic to keep the wannabe racers from parking their car in a ditch.

    I couldn't agree more. I cannot stand how electronic everything is now. I always loved the early vipers because they had a big v10, manual trans, and it took balls and skill to drive one. I started losing respect for these new supercars when you get it one and have to figure out what buttons to push to drive it.
