my c-4

im glad you guys are likeing the car. i just spent the winter reskinning the car from an older deatly style body to the more noticed factory body that was ran in the late 80s with imsa.we are fixing to take the car to tx world speedway in augutst to run with nasa on the 2.9 road coarse.cant wait...we just ran tms in may and the car did ok with a third,im about 150 horses shy of running with our faster gt1 cars here. we are still developing the car from the prev. owner....shocks will be the next project....the old carrera coil overs have to go.need a penske sponsor...haha..anyway we have only had the car a yr and things are getting better......we are running a 9 in . in the rear and we are waiting to put a detroit locker in there and get that mini spool out. the car is real hard to turn and you have to throttle out a bunch to get it to rotate in the corners,it is kinda of fun coming out sideways but looses to much time.......just got the wing for the car and man does the rear end stick around sweepers at high speed...niceeeeeeeeeeee.well ill quit yacking for now but if you have any ?s ill answer the best i can when im on...cool site with bad assed cars...mz

Sweet! Don't forget a "from behind". :laughing:

I'm a big fan of the C4 Corvette Challenge cars, love C4 race cars in general.

What has been the evolution of your C4 race car? What did it start out as?

I like Texas World Speeday. Are you running Clockwise or the old IMSA counter clockwise. Counter clockwise is faster but I think counter clockwise is much more fun.

Anyone know if that body work is available? It's a vain attempt because I'm sure it's custom but I would love to do the same thing, or at least get that rear lip on the silver car.

I am thinking about trying that NASA event. I am a little concerned because they let so many cars on the track at the same time. If I come down for the event Cristen will come over from Austin and we will shoot some pics with your Vette and any other members that attend.

:cheers:

nasa race

the nasa guys would put you in there time trials class.and i dont think they have that many cars.my rx7 buddy ran there a couple of months ago and i think there were only 15 or 16 cars out with him on the big track. you should be fine. you would have to see if they rent transponders though, they have all there cars with them for timing and scoring,they will put me in there race catagory so it will be cool to race with some other cars.....if any thing come down and hang out with us.....im here in dallas and work for ferrari of dallas. if your in the neighborhood stop in and see us......can we get cristen in my nomex? and is she single? well wishfull thinking anyway
