We can make them if there is an interest. The Red Kevlar/Black Carbon fiber valve covers would feature direct replacement of the stock covers. No cover on cover, but a true replacement carbon fiber unit.
One side of the mold pair
The Look: If you have not seen the red Kevlar Carbon, it is similar to the stock color. These covers would have the CORVETTE in black integrated carbon fiber, with the Z06 logo. We could also offer them in black carbon fiber, with red lettering.
If there is enough interest, we will price these to sell, not max out your credit card.
[b]sample swatch of the carbon/red planned for the Z06. Integrated CORVETTE and Z06 official logo. Coming in three weeks max, or sooner. Molds are being fabricated.
As you can see, the color is a dead nuts on match. When the vinyl ester is autoclaved it comes out somewhat darker.
We will also be making carbon/Lemans Blue
, and carbon/Silver, 50th Anniversary carbon/red.
All these colors will also be available in our TRAP system.
Jim, count me in! As soon as I see some kind of pic, I will most definetely order the red kevlar carbon fiber covers! :cool: :steering:
Oh...one more thing...how will they look if I were to purchase a Red TRAP system...will they match??
That is Stage 2, due to be released Monday. We are laying up the mold today and should have our first part out of the autoclave Monday morning.
It will be pure carbon fiber, five layer, with an entrance designed by our F1 airflow guru. He didn't like my design, so we paid him to make it right.
He is responsible for all the induction ports on many of the F1 race cars, and does everything on the flowbench.
This Tunnel Ram Air Port will still not be true ram air, since it will not have a capture box. Stage 3, will be Direct Ram Air, and will provide some additional benefits over Stage 2 in the quarter mile, with a capture box and minimal boost at high speed. It will be an upgrade to Stage 1 and Stage 2.
Z06 Style Screens will stop little animals from getting into the system. The best part is it will feature "Hot Swap". Halltech Tunnel Ram Air Port off, stock Corvette Plate or license plate back on in less than 30 seconds. Stage 2 is not legal for sale in states with a front license plate law.
