meh...Id rather something that looks like a quarter mile North American car, thansome european based look. But with the same (better) HP and twist.Thinking Hellcat....
I agree. They need to make a lightweight stripped down version dedicated for the drag strip. Very few people ever buy a new Corvette and run them around the road courses that they were designed for. The chances of sliding them down a guardrail or swapping paint with another car is inevitable if they are driven hard. And that could prove very expensive. So it is very rare to see them on a track. However they are on drag strips all over the country every weekend. This past weekend, at an event we held at our local drag strip, we had about 40 Corvettes show up.
How do you think the drag-racabiltiy would be affected by mid engine?
Folks take their vetts to track day all over the country. You can find lots of vids on YouTube.Ric
anybody know what the dealer mark up going to be?seem like the first year pre-order is about to be sold out.
Chevy does already, it's called a COPO Camaro.Building a stripped down Corvette for drag racing makes no sense what so ever, corporately speaking.
The problem with the COPO Camaro is that it is a track only car with no title. Is there a demand for such a car? Yes indeed. Enough to warrant a production run to be made. Probably not.
There are not that many road coarse tracks in the US. But there are small drag strips everywhere. And the number of Vette's that run weekly on a road coarse is nothing compared to how many show up at local drag strips. And the risk of destroying a Vette on a road coarse is MUCH higher than the risk of hurting one at the drag strip.
Danny, first off I don't know how many tracks you've been too but to say that Vettes are rarely seen tells me you haven't been to many !A couple weeks back the local Porsche club rented out the Glen for the weekend, there were damn near as many Vettes there as Porsches !!In so far as drag racing, I'm a long time bracket racer and I can tell you Corvette is by no means the dominant car. I suspect what you're referring to is a bunch of 'grudge racing' done at most drag strips around the country, mostly weekend warriors with very little skill.no if ands or butts the C8 is meant for serious road action and in no way will that heavy turd (Hellcat / Demon) do anything but look at it's taillights on a road course !
