You absolutely need to have a zeal for drag racing to turn a 2014 Chevrolet C7 Stingray Corvette into a 1/8-mile racing monster. This is exactly what Andrew (owner), Rob (driver) and the rest of their crew did and the video below features the Stingray-stein.
The main highlight with this Pro Mod class Corvette is what lies under the new hood panel: a 548 Hemi with a pair of Precision 102mm turbos that pack a whopping 3,500-horse punch. The two giant Precision ball bearing turbos also stuff air into the massive Hemi to hustle it down the track at Duck X’s Lights Out 7!
With the turbochargers housed in the nose and the exhaust tips mounted just behind the front wheels, this is a ‘Vette that has come far from what GM engineers had in mind for the platform. The car’s tech package also includes a 3-speed gearbox and a mandatory billet solid rear axle. Needless to say, the time and fab work that went into building the car is truly commendable.
Interestingly enough, the roof, the mid and rear sections of the body still come from the production car. This means you can still remove the top panel to let the wind in through the huge cage at speeds in excess of 200 mph. Click on the play button and watch the Hemispherical Corvette do its thing at the drag strip, laying down an impressive 4.05 at its very first even out!
