People buy cars for different reasons. Some buy them to commute, others to haul cargo, and some use them to cruise around in on the weekend. A guy by the name of Eric Lancaster has decided that his built 2010 Chevy Corvette ZR1 is his personal flamethrower, when it’s not at the drag strip.
Apparently Eric does all of his own work on the ZR1, save the dyno tuning, which was done at ShorTuning in Stanford, Kentucky. All together, the beast produces 902 horsepower to the rear wheels.
Here’s the quick specs for the build:
- Stock LS9 long-block
- Ported LS9 heads
- Brian Tooley Racing camshaft
- Stock blower with port work, snout and pulley from Lingenfelter
- Methanol injection kit
- Upgraded heat exchanger
- American Racing Headers
- Off-road X-pipe (with stock mufflers, oddly enough)
- RPS carbon clutch
- RPM built 6-Speed transmission
When Eric isn’t destroying tires or lighting fireworks with his exhaust, this LS9-powered monster is used to embarrass others with some impressive mid 9-second 1/4mi times, pushing above 150mph.
Take a look at the video, and sound off in the comments whether or not you think this nasty ride will meet emissions standards. If you look closely, you can see the car almost breaking loose from the machine due to its sheer power.
