    Cool Corvette in Cleveland area

    Hey, watch out for this guy! He just finished this vette. He likes to race this baby, and not shy for money. It all fits under a stock hood and looks and sounds fairly stock. (Except for a touch of the dual turbo whine.)

    The guy is a 23-year old mechanic. He's trying to get a vid of it in action. When he does, I'll try to link it.

    BTW, they haven't dynoed it yet, but they're guestimating 1200hp.

    Yay! I'd like to see this thing on the road! I'll just tell him I saw pics and read about it, that way he'll know I'm not ignorant

    Don't worry, I wouldn't race him

    Oh man, I just graduated from that school. I never heard any stories about this car. I saw he's still listed as an undergrad. You sure he's a 23 year old mechanic?

    Man, maybe I just need to ask around more, somebody must have noticed this.

    It is JUST finished. It has not been done but for a few days. But, you may see it soon though.

    I'm pretty sure that's the guy building the car. I'll keep looking for his video of it in action.

    Check the web site at the top of this thread. There's some more videos. And bring a change of underwear, especialy for the video labeled vette_movie_s_005. It's just a few runs in a parking lot, but holy balls we're talking some serious torque (and traction issues).
