Mods for the ZL1

Unfortunatelly I have become a mod ho Please use this thread to post any mods to the ZL1. As always Granted a pulley kit isn't that exciting for a pic but it will show how it looks installed. I especially welcome forum sponsors and group buys. I'm presently looking at torqs supercharger overdrive kit and will talk to my tuner on what tuner is needed. Cannot wait for delivery of my ZL1.

Sitting here and thinking, yes it hurts LOL. Anyway I'm wondering if it will be possible for Eibach to make lowering springs for the ZL1. With the electromagnetic shocks and partial compression of the shock from the lowered springs will it effect them? Any thoughts?

You could stick a bottle on it, or go 2 stage forced induction.

Torq claims 630hp. With pullies and tune. Not bad I'd say.

A RATO pod might be good.

Rocket Assisted Take Off.
I was kidding. The Air Force uses them on cargo planes for a short takeoff when overloaded.

Ohh we called that JATO in the Marines on the C130's. Jet assisted take off. Guess yours is more accurate though as they where rockets not jets. Man do they make alot of noise LOL

Along a sim. line my dream is to build a turbine (helicopter jet engine) powered car. I want a to build one of these Lemans Prototypes with either a ex-sprint car motor (winged sprint car not NASCAR) that I have or a small 1000hp used turbine. No I don't currently have a turbine engine but they are avail. As a former Jet Mech I'm sure I could make it work.
