2023 Z06 On the Dyno!!

YouTuber Speed Phenom takes his 2023 Z06 to the Dyno!

A YouTuber going by the name Speed Phenom, aka Austin Everett, picked up his 2023 Z06 Coupe at the National Corvette Museum on Tuesday (video Here) and by Thursday he had already driven to Texas and put 500 miles on the odometer. The break-in period completed, it was time to take it to the Dyno and see what numbers it produced.

Once strapped down at Dallas Performance, an experienced exotic car modifier, it was time to see what the 8,600 rpm redline LT6 puts down on the tires. The best of the three runs was 610.83 rwhp and 419.84 lb-ft of torque to the wheels! As the general rule of thumb is that you’ll see a loss of 10 to 15 percent from the engine to the wheels, it seems like the factory rating of 670 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, may be a bit underrated.

You can see the dyno run Here.

cf1 collage 3

Kindigit Designs of Bitchin Rides and Corvette Mike have collaborated to bring you the Koolest of Bitchin Rides — a series dedicated to the ultimate resto-mods. The last of a true breed of combustion engines purpose-built by Lingenfelter, developing enough horsepower to rip the steel cords right off these Michelins.
This combination of a very limited, select edition of carbon fiber bodies mated to Roadster Shop chassis culminated into something very special. The first, from scratch, retro look 1953 Corvette Roadster with all the trick goodies of modern-day Sportage transportation with a flare to dare you not to stare.

This CF1 is already SOLD, though you can custom build
and reserve yours today! Talk to us, baby!!

This Weeks Owners’ Corner

Skip’s C8 and Miata

My C8 is closing in on 7k miles and my insurance is limited to 7k miles per year. They renewed my policy on July 1st so I have another year to put on 7k more miles.

I drove it to Salt Lake City to attend the annual Lotus Owners Gathering (LOG 40). I used to have a Caterham 7 and am still an active member of both the national and local Lotus Clubs. When I filled out the registration form and sent in the entry fee I listed my C8 as the car I was bringing. I was told this was the first car not related to Lotus they had allowed to register. I was allowed to park in the reserved for Lotus parking lots with the Lotus and related cars.

I also drove it to Grand Junction for the annual Flyin’ Miata Summer Camp. I didn’t enter it into the car show but it still got two write in votes. It won a trophy for the Best Car Not A Miata. I also own a Miata and have attended every Summer Camp, the only person to do that other than the owners.
