    • LMR (Late Model Racecraft) increases the C7 LT1 horsepower record to 1269 horsepower at the wheels

      So where does the C7 Stingray horsepower record stand this week? Oh, just at 1269 horsepower to the wheels. LMR (Late Model Racecraft) made a point to take the overall horsepower record from Vengeance Racing with an 1124 wheel horsepower pull on nitrous and now for good measure they raised the bar they set to 1269 at the wheels on nitrous. This is a 6-speed manual car with an upgraded clutch from McLeod.

      What are the other modifications? A Vortech YSI centrifugal blower, 416 cubic inch (6.8 liters) built motor, LMR cylinder heads, LMR cam, and a nitrous system courtesy of Nitrous Express. The vehicle is tuned in house by LMR.

      This war is just beginning.

        The Corvette is so damn exciting yet Dodge is locking people out of the Viper and wondering why the cars are sitting on lots.

        American Muscle is supposed to be able to flex.

        i mean all around build quality, not just performance. ford stepped up big time performance wise and drivability and the interior is a big improvement.

        Of course it will hang and then some. Displacement is on its side.

        it won't hang, it'll make the power but lack the traction...

        So far the C7 has proved to have damn good traction. I mean we've already seen 1.4 and 1.5 60ft with tires and suspension straight off the showroom floor?
