Jeff and I both know this car..... http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/1990-corvette-lpe-zr-1-review/
second gen ZR-1's are so fuckin nasty.. that one takes the cake
edit: I mean that in a good way
Amazing car when new, amazing car now.
technically there is only one ZR-1 but i'm splitting hairs
this should start a spark
Wouldnt that be a ZL-1?
I said there was only one ZR-1...I never said anything about zr1's... told ya I was splitting hairs
ZL-1 was one year only, and they only made 2
thought this would get more love
I prefer the 91-96 bodystle for C4s, though
That's an interesting thread on TTAC.
I wish there was a site dedicated to reviewing used cars from different eras. I think you could probably generate an audience discussing what you could get in a certain genre.
People looking for a reliable daily commuter might like to read an honest review of, say, a 1991 Celica rather than a 2009 Corolla.
There's a guy down here with one of those (well just a plain zr-1) but a 94 I think. He's got a built motor and claimed to get the last set of ligenfelter cams...car makes about mid 500's on pump. That lt5 is a nasty sounding motor.
these cars were amazing when new... I got to drive a 1993 Anniversary Edition LPE ZR1 back when it was new... it was Ruby Red Metallic and the guy that ordered it was generous enough to let a few of us drive the monster... it was kind of hard to start at first, but once it was up and running, it idled amazingly well and you didn't need to do much to make the rear tires turn into a fine black powder.
the first ZR1 that I ever drove was a 1993 black one that we did a dealer trade for in 1992... I'm sure the speedo wasn't accurate, but when it got to 160mph, I was definitely in love
I think I know that guy....
I need to get mine out this weekend....the spedo is pretty accurate but the tach has a delay in it
I heard a rumour at the racetrack one day that the LT5 could run to 8500 rpm but the engineers had a tough time keeping the serpentine belt on!
8500-9000 is not uncommon in the pirate race cars if I remember correctly...maybe jeff would know....I'll email my contact and see what he says...
I dont ever remember hearing about the serpentine belt problem... I believe some of the racer types went with a 5mm or 10mm smaller belt, so maybe that's why?
that is probably to bypass the ac, ps, wp, ect
yeah, I always presumed it as an AC bypass size... but since I never owned one, I never knew... lol
but the ones I did get to drive were alot of fun
ok I was wrong about the pirate cars, they kept the stock power band for the most part but bumped it by about 300 rpm....not sure where I got my numbers but they were dead wrong.
OH i think i was thinking about the fastlane racing car
Nice to see a review about a C4 that doesn't rip it to shreds over mundane crap.
