I am sure there is nothing out there this like this car. It took 5 years to build and was done right in every way.
I bought the car originally in Wisconsin and sent it directly to Muscle Up Performance in Janesville, Wisconsin.
Check their website and you will some of the info on the car. Rich Bickle the owner and former NASCAR driver re-did
the body and built the chassis.
The full chassis frame was built the similar to the way NASCAR teams build theirs but without the full roll cage.
Full tubular design with mounting points to the original Camaro mounts. The mounts are solid and there is no flex
in the chassis or movement where it isnít wanted. This keeps the suspension geometry exact continuously. The
shocks and coils are fully adjustable with ride height and car load. QA-1 products were used.
The front end has a Sweet power steering rack, tubular A arms, Heim joints at all pivot points, tie rod end and
ball joint locations. Brakes are Wildwoods best 4 piston calipers and large rotors.
Muscle up Performance took the car to bare metal and then gave it a perfect pain job in GM Corvette red. The hood
is fiberglass with a stinger scoop accented in silver. Really makes the car come alive.
The engine is a new crate LS6 with a 6 speed T56, The McLeaod hydraulic throw bearing was purchased to ensure
trouble free operation and simplicity for bleeding and operation. A 3 Ĺ inch drive shaft was sourced and connected
to Winters Ford 9" rear end with a 3.70 gear and posi. The 4 link suspension controls the movement of the rear end
again with QA1 coils and adjustable shocks, 450 lb/in used on the rear. Brakes again are Wildwood.
The black leather interior seats were taken from a newer GM vehicle with six way adjustment. The rears were
sectioned to fit and the complete installation looks factory. The door panels and console were done in a matching
black leatherette which was also wrapped around the original dash. New gauges were added and the overall effect
with the black low pile carpet giving it sporty but elegant look.
An aluminum rad with two electric fans was added to cool the engine.
All engine management and sensors were provide by Turnkey engines with a Painless wiring installation. They
certainly do a great job with their packages.
The car was complete last year and I drove it 60 miles to a local car shown. Having driven all types of performance
cars in the past 40 years this was one of the best handling and driving cars I have driven with a ride to rival
only the newest performance car designs. This is not the type of car I drove some 45 years ago when I got my
license. The first thing that I noticed after the build was there was way more chassis then engine. I then added a
Procharger Supercharger and ATI pinned balancer. A water to air intercooler, pump and cooler were added to help
cool the charge. The final inclusions were a water/methanol injection system, MSD coil packs and wires were added
to ensure a reliable spark.
The wheels are Foose 18 inch rim 8Ē in the front and 9.5Ē in the rear. The tires are 235/45x18 on the front and
rears are 275/35x 18.
The car has 0 miles with this set-up. I donít have the time to enjoy all the vehicles I built and have now. The
car would cost more than $100K to reproduce as that is what I spent to date

Dodge vs. Chevy tug-of-war taken to the extreme

Mon, 17 Dec 2012 14:58:00 EST

They say "idle hands are the devil's playground," but said playgrounds grow to Disney-sized proportions when a pair of jacked-up trucks, two egos, a chain and an empty mall parking lot are involved. Proof of this is the video below, which shows a Cummins-powered Dodge Ram circa 2006 to 2008 chained tail-to-tail with what looks to be a gasoline-powered Chevrolet Silverado from the late 1990s or early 2000s.
We don't necessarily have to tell you who wins this battle, but we'll let you see for yourself the lengths the "winning" driver goes to prove his point. There's plenty of foul language in the video below, so beware that this might be Not Safe For Work, and not that we should have to tell you, but please, do not try this at home.

C7 Corvette turbo with 1,000 horsepower promised from Hennessey

Mon, 25 Feb 2013 19:01:00 EST

If you can't wait for the next-generation Chevrolet Corvette ZR1, Hennessey says they will have you covered. The Texas-based company has announced it will offer a spate of upgrades for the 2014 Corvette ranging from a range of bolt-on options all the way up to a 1,000-horsepower, twin-turbo system. Buyers can start with a cold air intake, cat-back exhaust or stainless steel long-tube headers, but Hennessey says it will also offer up three stages of forced induction mayhem should those bits and baubles not provide enough thrust.
Those choices start with a supercharger system good for up to 700 hp, though Hennessey will gladly ditch the blower in favor of two turbos. Doing so will spin the crank to the tune of 800 horsepower all the way up to a certifiably ludicrous 1,000 ponies. There's no word on how much these tricks will cost you - or when they will be available, as we're guessing they haven't gotten their hands on the car yet - but you can head over to the Hennessey site to drop them a line if you're curious.

Corvette Stingray Convertible images mysteriously appear on web, so we add our own

Tue, 22 Jan 2013 13:29:00 EST

It was inevitable that we'd see the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray topless at some point, but that didn't make us any less interested when a pair of supposedly leaked official images showed up on last week. We posted them on our Facebook page, but held off reporting on them here until we could get a little more information.
Those images, which feature a dark red car on a sterile black studio background, supposedly first appeared on the website of diecast model maker Maisto. A Chevrolet spokesman has been reported saying that they are "not official images released by Chevrolet PR," which isn't a denial they're the real deal, but neither is it a confirmation.
Close examination of the photos suggest they could be official shots of the Corvette Stingray Convertible, and while some have doubted their authenticity due to a lack of vents (which were seen on the C7s that debuted in Detroit last week), it could be that the images are of a base model car without the Z51 package that doesn't require the extra venting and cooling.
