Yes, they are C6 Z06 based cars that run the 6 liter engine per the rules rather than the 7 liter engine. SCCA's way of keeping things equal. The Viper runs a 510 cu in engine which is hard enough to control without letting the 427 cu in of the Corvette in the picture.
We also use the C6 steel frame for ease of welding a cage to it.
My new car, LG's, Leighton Reese, Tony Gaples, and one Grand-Am team are running the new C6R based Z06 Carbon body from Corvetteracebodies.com. The body is designed to fit onto the C6 frame (or C5 with substantiol tub changing)
The bodywork is based entirely on the Z06 with GM's C6R mods. The old C5 WC Cars used bodywork that was really nothing like the C5R bodies from GM.
Although we run the 6.0L engine, even with the 69mm restrictor, we are surpassing the 505hp of the new LS7 engine
:lol: What cracks me up is that one of the announcers for WCGT is always going on about how beautiful Tony Gaples car is and how great it sounds. I wonder if he realizes that Lou and Leighton are running virtually the same car in a different color scheme.
Lou -- Who do we contact about the crappy tv coverage for the Speed WC Series?
