Default My C7.R Edition

hey guys, i've been on here for over a year- but never posted pics of my z06. I was a 911 turbo guy, had a couple of them before I got the Z. Never ever did I think I would be a corvette guy, but now... I cant imagine not even having a vette in my garage. I bought this car primarily based on the technical statistics. I love everything about this car EXCEPT for the unbearably loud tires (MPSS) but thats ok.

My list of mods are:
GM Performance Filter
Ported SC
Pulley
JTM Tune
OEM E85 kit
Mighty Mouse catch can
Kooks headers and xpipe w/ green cats
LG lowering spindles
Hurst shortshifter (modified)
Carbon fiber Center console and CF steering wheel trim piece
Entire car (excpt doors) has been Xpel'd and Titanium Ceramic Coated.
k40 hardwire laser jammer/ radar detector w/ integrated remote control
30% tints all around, 60% windshield
19x10.5 and 20x12.5 3 piece wheels

I don't plan on ever letting go of her, especially since its the final front engine manual transmission vette.
Hope to meet some fellow enthusiasts and check out eachothers cars. im an nyc local but i spend quite a bit of time in miami.

Thanks for looking.

P.S. i drive the car.. alot. like, a lot a lot. I've got some cool videos of mexico runs that I might post later.
























some pics.

always wanted to do this.


boys being boys.

somewhere in mexico.. overreved 5th to 4th... this is known as money shift in the porsche world lol

dyno pull

Looks great! Yellow calipers also look killer on a black car.

There is a classic Porsche Corvette Rivalry. As I have said before on this site I had a 991 911S and the two cars on my radar were a 911 Turbo or the Z06 perhaps moving on to the C8.
There was something with the Porsche I did not like. It was too clinical? It just did not get the juices flowing, it was not visceral enough.

Anyway, they are both great cars and they have their place.

Great car, enjoy.

Very nice car, and looks like you are having some fun with it. Noticed the Pennsylvania tags and inspection stickers - is that so you don't have to put one of those NY front license plates on it?

Beautiful car. I've got a couple questions: The CF center console, is that an adhesive overlay, or real CF? Where did you source it? And, what is that cluster of buttons next to the HUD controls?

thanks man!
the CF center console is real cf. I purchased it from https://www.westcoastcorvette.com/p-...y-z51-z06.aspx


the cluster next to the HUD is my wired remote control for my k40 laser/radar system.
