Fun project... AWD


Didn't one of the Vette magazines build one of these way back in the 80's ??

I thought they did a series of articles on such a project??

Czesc!

Looks good. Awesome to see someone in Poland with a c3. Where are you guys? Im from Opole but i moved here when i was like 2. My mom is from wroclaw.
Heres a pic of my car- zz502, 5 speed tremec tko 600 and Accel EFI superram

I guess Polish people know how to get it done lol.
I built a twin turbo Mitsubishi 3000GT before this.

Im going to be over there probably early summer (well germany for the world cup) but i might have to stop by and check all this out.

Doesn't look like the transer case/front driveshaft is going to fit under the driver's side floorboard. What is your plan for this?

Default Amazing

Subscribing so I can see the progress.

Looks like a very cool - custom build.

GM might be watching and taking notes for the next gen vette. although I kinda think the general needs to keep vettes RWD for nostalgic reasons - leave the AWD to you!

Are you the guys entering in King of Europe? I saw a list of competitors and there was a polish 4wd corvette listed w/ 998 HP. Is that you guys and if so, where did the HP number come from? I see an LT1 and a big turbo there but nothing that's complete and would give dyno results????

How on earth is a hood going to fit over that, is the turbo going to remain there or mounted in the center?

LOL I figured a lot of numbers on that list were BS and it seemed like the rice all had guesstimate HP, 400+ 500+ LOL what a joke

First you build an AWD C3...then you pull that off. You fit in well around here.
