Blown-Engine Corvette Z06 Dominates at Road Atlanta Track Day
It looks as though forum member “Lawdogg149’s” blown-engine troubles with his Corvette Z06 are behind him. You may recall Lawdogg was the first Z06 customer to experience engine failure with only 891 miles on his odometer.
Highlights from Jalopnik’s “Ask Tadge Anything” include the chief engineer’s insights about how he’d spec his own Z06 and whether or not there’s any truth to the new ZR1 rumors.
While testing their “prototype lower harmonic balancer to increase boost” on the new Corvette Z06, Late Model Racecraft achieved some dino-sized dyno numbers.
Believe it or not, there are still folks out there who think that the new Z06 is slow. As evidence to the contrary, we submit this video of a stock Z06 racing against a Lamborghini Gallardo Super Trofeo Stradale.
Chevy says 40 percent of those who purchased a new Corvette in December opted for a Z06 model. After my day zooming around Nevada’s Spring Mountain Motor Resort, I quickly understood why.
