After an intensive 8-month build, the project resulted in a top-ten finish, as the Corvette was named one of the Top Ten Hottest Hot Rods of SEMA by Yahoo! Autos. “Being included in […]

When we brought you the Stingray reveal last year, we were flat-out amazed at how good the new C7 Corvette looked. It had the right styling and performance to bring an entirely new customer to Chevrolet’s flagship model.

(If you haven’t read Part 1 yet, you need start at the beginning of the journey–here.) I should have known it was going to be one of those builds the day we pulled the carpet out. The car was sold as a mild restoration, everything was there, it was super clean, and it ran well. […]

This changes the game for all the non-active suspension system cars that road race. The Berserker is a derivative of a more complex military application, allowing the […]
