One Light Bulb Garage had the light bulb blow out.
Bad Times in the Corvette World.

Everyone is waiting for the New Super Corvette with 800 - 2000 HP.

The C4 ZR-1 Corvette released in 1990 had running and driving prototypes in 1985.
Tested in England near the Lotus Plant.

Costs too much to take a standard old Corvette and build an engine, transmission, & rearend diff to beat the Hellcats.

You pretty much take everything Chevy gave you & pitch it in the trash. None will take 800 + HP.
Just a few GM Big Blocks By Chevy & Pontiac will take the Abuse using production parts.
Turbo 400 Trans.
Dana 60 rear & Pontiac 9.3 rear diff.

So true production parts hard to explain to some people. Head to thick to understand if it is a Dart block it is no longer Chevy it is chevy spec but you have now built a dart or Motown.

They are not making a Corvette with anything over 850 HP

Did you know it takes a 4 part video for someone to say use Windex to clean your windows. :lol:

Its really a shame that the Corvette that once was untouchable is a mear shadow of its former self.

My Favorite Time period is the 1990's.
NHRA Super Stock.
You had to use the Factory production block, Production crankshaft, Production intake manifold, production carburetor, Production cylinder heads with absolutely Zero porting allowed .
Not even a gasket match.
You could change pistons, piston rings, Camshafts with stock valvelifts, install headers, use aftermarket connecting rods, upgrade transmissions, upgrade rear diffs with lower gears.
The Record is still held by a 1969 Pontiac Trans Am RAIV 400.
9.99 ET in 1/4 mile. No nitrous. No turbo.
No supercharger Maggie.

For Dodge to be #1 they have to go after the Bugatti Veron V16 with 1,100 Hp.
Runs 9's.
Top end 300 mph.
Dodge will have 1,000 Hp .
Demon Hellcats.

Allot carbon in the Veyron not going to be easy to beat but shall see quad turbo lights it up low end and up top.
