GT1 Corvette – “Project Insanity”

AVI Racing's turn-key "Corvette" race car

Features and Benefits

gt1-corvette-02

  • Tremec TR6060 6-speed transmission and diff completely gone through and blueprinted – ensures maximum performance and extends life expectancy
  • Quarter Master 7 ½” triple disc clutch with lightweight flex plate – aid in engine to rear wheel engagement and much faster power to the wheels.
  • Clutch hydraulic system with remote bleeder – aids in speedy bleeding and fluid changes, maximizing brake system performance and extends the life expectancy of the clutch hydraulics
  • Large individual brake and clutch reservoirs – reduces fluid breakdown from heat and allows rapid fluid inspection and changes
  • Front and rear independent brake system. Separate master cylinders and brake bias gauges – increased safety and allows maximum brake bias adjustability
  • Custom ram air ducts to brakes – significantly aids in brake cooling ensuring longer rotor and pad life
  • Large 3 gallon ARE oil tank – modified, with engine oil preheater installed – ensures prolonged engine life
  • ATI 28 gallon steel fuel cell (ethanol fuel compatibility optional) with integrated “surge tank” and secondary safety cage– increased driver safety and puts the weight where it is needed, behind the rear tires. Car runs on PUMP fuel (E85 is highly recommended) significantly reducing the requirement and inconvenience of expensive race fuel
  • Custom air cleaner/breather system in the “cold” zone in front of the radiator – cooler air cooler temps and more low end torque
  • Engine oil catch can is located in the rear (behind the tires) – significantly increasing safety reducing the chance of engine oil fire should the oil overflow
  • Quick disconnect battery terminals – aid in speedy battery changes or jump starting
  • All wiring harnesses are done in house and are labeled for easy identification. – Makes troubleshooting or rewiring of a component simple. Also, each sensor and engine control components are all wired individually for speedy identification and change out, if necessary
  • High Quality Autometer digital gauges – Tach/Oil pressure/fuel pressure/oil temp/water temp
  • Extra strong “birdcage” design with NASCAR type door bars and re-enforcements – reduced frame flexing and ensures a MUCH safer cockpit for the driver in the event of a mishap
  • Modular front and rear frame components and are usually kept in stock – Allows DIY frame damage repair and guarantees proper alignment to birdcage
  • Fire system and engine control switches close to driver and emergency crew access – in case of emergency
  • Integrated jacking point in door on both sides – reduces the need for a special low profile jack just to get under the car
  • Full body removal and open frame design – aids in speedy clutch and other driveline replacement procedures (i.e. a clutch can be replaced in under an hour, transmission in an hour etc)
  • Tilt hood and rear section – makes fuel fill, after/before race check over and basic maintenance a breeze. If needed, the hood and rear section can be removed in a matter of minutes. Not having to remove panels all the time prolongs panel life expectancy
  • Adjustable heims for nose piece – allows for easy and quick splitter adjustments
  • Pfadt spherical bushings for all control arm and shock mounts – significantly reduces deflection and geometry issues
  • Large hollow sway bars incorporated through the frame – ensures better sway bar performance and tuning
  • Optional Forged aluminum drop spindles (uprights). Also the control arms have been relocated – lowers car CG without compromising car geometry
  • C6 Corvette front and rear cradles, suspension, engine and driveline components – they are VERY strong, durable and affordable and are available at your local GM dealer
  • Long ARP wheel studs – maximize thread to nut for added strength
  • Optional Inner aluminum wheelwells and complete underbody panning – aid in air flow control (with integral aluminum under-panning) and keeps engine and header heat away from the brakes and tires – THIS IS HUGE
  • Optional Racepak/AIM dash available
