Default New Member - 56 Corvette Road Race

Nearing completion of a 34-year project. 56 Corvette road race car with tons of modifications. Emphasis has been on suspension and, believe it or not, aerodynamics. Latest of 4 suspensions -- full independant of my own design using some C4 Corvette and lots of aftermarket parts: ATS, Woodward Steering, Lefthander, Howe, Guldstrand, Drive Shaft Shop, AFCO, Speedway Engineering. Drivetrain: all aluminum BIG block with Tremec TKO 600 Extreme moved back 12 inches. Body: Rear fenders widened, removable air dam with carbon fiber splitter, removable rear deck with integral spoiler and adjustable carbon fiber wing, diffuser. Tires/wheels: 18 inch HREs (10.5 in. front and 13 in. rear) with 295 and 345 Michelin Pilot Sport Cups (street tires). Other: full cage (SCCA/NASA), Fuel Safe cell, fire system, etc. Have pictures, just haven't figured out how to post them due to attachment size restrictions. Looking forward to seeing you guys on the track.

Default More Pictures

Per your requests, a couple more pictures. I will take pictures of the suspension and include them soon. I have a little clean up work to do on the firewall -- I found a way to move the motor back another 1.5 in. (from 10.5 to 12 in.) and I'm adding a new Tilton pedal assembly and Woodward NASCAR steering column (to save weight). In response to NOT A TA, this car hasn't been on the track yet -- I am shooting for late this year at Firebird Raceway and PIR, Phoenix, and Spring Mountain Mototrsports Ranch, Pahrump NV.
