Very nice!

Also interested in the source for the splitter and front nose/bumper.

That looks like the Melrose Ttops nose/airdam.

If that were my car i know what i would do...

Lay that radiator forward and build a chimney though the hood...get huge cooling impact and a ton of aero/downforce benefit.

Nice Car!

Thank for all the kind words on the car
I have been building it for 2 years.
Lots of testing and working out bugs.
As for the front end my friend has the mold and he has them made as ordered.
He also got the hood and the wing for me.
He knows his shet when if comes to corvettes.
His name is Mike and runs Mike Poupart Motorsports.
You can contact him at (504)472-0400
He can get you any info on the front end, hood or the wing that you need.
Thanks again for all the views.

Great looking car! I love the access that the C4 clamshell hood gives to work on the car!

Amen to that! I've traded my stock C4 for a different C3 and am going to have to get a pair of fender covers and some Dolan's Back Pills

Very nice C4 race car. I still love the body style but just never got over how hard they are to work on and how often mine stayed broken.
Maybe it was the owner/driver and not the car.

They can be finnicky but at this point there isn't much C4 left in that car, is there?

Love the splitter/nose. Just showed that to my wife and said yep, that is pretty much where my C4 is heading.

One question, what would this be classed as by the typical organizations??? SCCA? NASA?

Is it fairly close to any of there existing classes?

Depending in the weight/horsepower, it could fit in ST-2 or ST-1 with NASA.

How competitive would this be in those classes?

I'm kicking around different track car ideas myself.
