C7 Z06 vs Hellcat Video

This video shows a C7 Z06 being challenged on the freeway by not one, but two Dodge Challenger Hellcats. The Z06 is driven by "Mr Z06" and one of the Hellcats is "FATT-CAT". Both of these are 8 speed automatics. These cars are monsters!

C7 Corvette Z06 with 375 Rear Tires!


Wow! A customer of ours showed us this car today and we just had to share it. It's simply beautiful. We know it's a C7 Corvette Z06 with 375 width rear tires. The wheels are 20 inch in the front and 21 inch in the rear. It looks like it has some suspension work as it's a bit lowered, but it could also be the way the wheels fill up the fender, reducing the gap.


If anyone knows more information on the owner of this car, or it's modifications, please let us know!

C7 Corvette Z06 Heat Soak or ECU Timing Being Pulled?

There have been a lot of people complaining lately that after a few track laps their 2015 C7 Corvette Z06 feels slower. Initially people though that the supercharger was getting too hot, and so it was heatsoaking, effectively making the air going through the supercharger to the engine too hot and not making as much power.

GM has made a statement on this topic and has said that the problem is that the car is designed to pull back timing after some use, which helps to prevent any powertrain damage. They believe that the majority of owners will never race their C7 Z06, so they will never have this problem, or they simply won't notice. GM has said that there are aftermarket products you can purchase that will allow for you to override this feature in the ECU.

Some have said that the reason the ECU pulls back timing is because of the heat soak. The ECU sees the supercharger getting too hot, so it pulls back timing to prevent any engine damage. The real reason is still unknown, but those who are getting their C7 Z06 Corvettes dyno'd will soon test to see if the ECU pulls back timing when the supercharger air temps reach a certain temperature to cause heat soak.

If anyone has any data to prove either of the above, please contact us and we can share it here, so we can get down to the bottom of the power loss in the new Z06.

Supercharged Callaway Corvette C7 Stingray SC610


The aftermarket is quickly picking up steam for the all new 2014 Corvette Stingray. One of the biggest tuners for the Corvette has been Callaway, so when the C7 was released, Callaway wasted little time in getting ready to start releasing their performance packages. Recently revealed is the Corvette C7 SC610 package which develops 610 horsepower and 555 ft/lbs of torque.

The incredible thing about this SC610 package is that Callaway claims that even wth an extra 160 horsepower and 105 ft/lb torque, the C7 has the same fuel economy and CO2 emissions as a stock vehicle. Very impressive. They managed this feat by using an active fuel management system and modulated supercharged valving. The supercharger has a 4 lobe high helix rotor pack, but with a new housing and manifold to dramatically improve airflow and efficiency. To top it all off, Callaway offers a high flow intercooler to keep temps low and the car happy.

To add to some visual appeal, Callaway includes a carbon fiber hood with integrated air extractor to not only be good looking but also functional.

Pricing has not yet been announced, but we expect it to be a premium offering. It would be interesting to compare the price difference between the C7 Callaway SC610 package and the C7 Z06 which was recently released, since the C7 Z06 actually offers greater performance.

2014 Corvette C7 Stingray Crash in Arizona


The new Corvette C7 Stingray hasn't even been released yet, and already there has been a crash. We don't have much details on this, but it looks like the C7 was being tested on some windy roads in Arizona and ended up a bit overzealous and in the side of a mountain after hitting a guardrail. The crash seems relatively minor so I don't think anyone was hurt, luckily.

2014 Corvette C7 leaked front end – Z06 and ZR1 next


Chevrolet, or a designer for Chevrolet, leaked a front end drawing of a 2014 C7 Corvette on accident or on purpose. Chances are it will look somewhat like this, but what we do know is that this drawing shows many similarities of what the C6 currently looks like, but incorporates Nissan 350Z style headlights and an exaggerated front angle. This looks relatively plain, so it's likely a base model C7.

We'll wait see what the real C7 looks like, but I can't help but look at this and imagine a carbon fiber lip, canards, wide fenders and a few other pieces to give it an aftermarket or higher trim model look. I have a feeling a leaked C7 Z06 or ZR1 drawing isn't far out.

Video: Nissan GT-R vs Corvette Z06 on the Highway

In this video, a Corvette Z06 C6 races a Nissan GT-R on the freeway. I don't know if both cars are modified or not, but from the looks of the other cars in the video, it does look like they are with a Corvette C5 and a Subaru WRX, so likely these guys aren't stock.

It's an impressive video, but with the extremely high speeds on public roads, it's extremely dangerous what they're doing.

TIKT Tuning Corvette ZR1 in Germany

Long known for aftermarket performance, German Tuner TIKT Tuning has started to work on the infamous Corvette ZR1. Dubbed as the Corvette Tripple X, this ZR1 puts out 758 horsepower to destroy just about any competition in a straight line. TIKT has also modified the ZR1 to look good while going fast, and has an extremely aggressive rear wing and front bumper that might not appeal to everyone in the United States. What will appeal to to US drivers is the engine, and they have done everything from modifying the cylinder heads and cam to reworking the supercharger to not only increase horsepower and performance but do so while maintaining almost OEM like reliability.

The video above shows the Corvette at an auto show in Europe.


2013 Corvette 427 60th Anniversary Collector Edition

For 2013, Chevy wants to celebrate the success of their Corvette by releasing a 427 Convertible Collector edition as a 60th anniversary package. The first car, and maybe the only one, will be auctioned off at Barrett Jackson in Scottsdale, so if you want one, you better get your auction ticket quickly before spaces are sold out. Chevy should release more later in the year, and likely will, but the first is going to be sold at auction, so expect it to go for a heft price.

What's unique is there is no convertible Z06 or ZR1, so this new convertible featuring the 7 liter 427 from the Z06 will be a first, and long overdue. Rated at the standard 505 horsepower and 470 lb feet of torque, this Corvette is expected to be just as potent as the Z06.

No price has been announced yet, but expect it to cost a few thousand more than the Z06.
