C7 Carbon Splitter, SR-1 Spoiler and Side Skirts

From real life experience I can tell you that a front spoiler, just riveted to the body, works. When I use to race in SCCA I would occasionally get my front spoiler knocked half off or all the way...

From what I understand about Distilled Water and Water Wetter is that they are for the "Track." In an ideal world where you have a dedicated track car, by all means use these two. If you have a dual...

I thought of a good category you did not list that a lot of Vette owners fall into: the category of DUAL PURPOSE TRACK/STREET. A lot of us use our cars on the track, but also daily drive them. It is...

Photos like this of a Red Corvette reminds me of what a great songwriter/singer once said that "nobody writes a song about Volvos."

Good looking car!

I would skip the ATE brake fluid and go straight for the Castrol SRF. Also, you can get some titanium backing plates for the brake pads. I run the XP-10s up front with the XP-8s for the rear, but...

It's the other way around. The more water, the cooler running it is. The reason for the coolant is to protect the aluminum, seals to the water pump and hoses. There maybe other things I have missed,...

Is that a C7 Carbon Splitter and Rear Spoiler? Do you take your car out on the track? Does the Splitter effect Oil/Coolant Temps? Thanks.

From previous experience racing in SCCA, be ready with a good story for the other guy after the race when he gets in your face, especially if you bumped and rubbed.

I recently put one on my car, but it was one of those "while I'm in there" type deals. If I was not in that situation, I would probably wait until I had to change my clutch or something like that.

Every time you buy a car, you have to consider the resale value. The ZO6 will hold its value better than a non-ZO6. The year and color also make a difference. An early year 2003 has the fuel filter...

Sounds like a road trip. That's why they call them "STEALERSHIPS." If you can't do the work yourself, you might want to trailer the car to somewhere where they will do the work. Take a look at the...
