Video: Twin Turbo C6 Corvette Hits the Dragstrip
Want to go hunting the LS dragstrip ET record? Gerald Bunce’s 2008 Corvette build would be a pretty good blueprint… A 427 cubic inch Proline Racing mill topped with Mast Motorsports Mozez heads and a Hogan’s sheet metal intake manifold, running on alcohol and boosted by a pair of Precision 88mm turbos good for north of 3,000 horsepower provides the motivation for this insane build.
Brink Racecraft of Arlington, Texas handled the chassis work, and a look at their album of Bunce’s Corvette on Facebook shows just how serious this car is. A Mark Williams narrowed solid axle centersection and 4-link suspension replace the factory IRS, allowing huge Goodyear slicks to tuck between the fenders – necessary to handle that level of horsepower. As the video shows, even with all that rubber on the real estate, the skill needed to pilot a car like this and keep it headed in the right direction is no joke.
While not built to any particular class spec, Outlaw Drag Radial competition seems to be a good bet, and of course since the car is still wearing its license plate, we’re sure Bunce will be taking it to the local drive-through every now and then…
