Default C3 Vette with a nice hood ornament...















copy/paste

I spent the weekend at the Polish quarter mile drag racing championships. I just got home about an hour ago. I'll post more later when I have all of the photos sorted though...I have over 800 from the event.

In the meantime, here is a teaser. This car ended up winning it'* class with a low 9 second time. Keep in mind drag racing in Poland is a different ballgame. They race on old abandoned airstrips which have almost zero traction. It'* really bad. There'* no traction compound. Look ath the pavement in the 3rd pic...that'* how the entire track looks. Built RWD dragsters with monster rear slicks cannot hookup. I don't think a single RWD car did better than 11'*. A TT C5 Z06 ran high 13'* spinning all the way though 3rd. Ha ha ha.

Anyway, I found this car awesome.

C3 Corvette

-Built LT1 swap stroked to 6.2 liters
-Autronic standalone management
-Turbonetics T91 turbo (as big as a freakin' pumpkin)
-Converted to AWD system from Typhoon/Syclone
-Built TH-400 Auto tranny with trans-brake
-ZEX 200 shot direct port N2O
-Fiat Seicento ignition modules (!!!)

Anyway, this car had some serious hook and sounded MEAN. I was worried my camera would get sucked in. Ha ha ha.

I agree, just look at the lift on that normally low vette I would love to hear that thing make a run.
