I want to say it was around 1100 lbs no doors, hood, fenders, or deck lid. I don't have the exact weight in front of me right now. I do remember the doors are 50 lbs each with no glass, trim, handles, mirrors....completely bare so those guys are heavy.

I don't know the rules of WC but I guess you are not allowed to change much of the unibody/suspension for lighter components?

Not in this class. The GT class that the Corvette's and Vipers run in, you have a bit more freedom.

It will have our ZR28 carbon hood on it, as well as carbon doors, fenders, and trunk lid...which will be available to everyone here as well.

One good thing about this is that we will be designing and releasing a bunch of new parts for you guys as this car runs pretty much the same suspension that all of you have on your own cars. No custom fabricated engine cradle or control arms that would require you to cut up your own car. Just race proven parts you will be able to bolt on at home.

I'm interested in the rear wing and which looks better. I saw you posted that rules say you need to run a narrower one. Which do you recommend and what do the cost?

That is our GTS wing. Both our wing and ZR28 hood are approved for the Camaro's in GTS.

Rear bumper is being fitted now, and wing mounts are soon to go on. Rear suspension is coming together nicely.




Front nose going on, splitter is being constructed as well as brake and radiator ducting.

What brakes do you run? Do you run a stock booster?

The car is going to be using the Trophy brakes from StopTech. No booster, the car is running manual brakes with pedals and master cylinders from Tilton.

Aftermarket Bosch adjustable ABS.
