Check out this video from Speed Phenom where he takes is track driven 25,000 mile 2LT C8 Corvette to Carmax and see what he is offered.
It’s actually pretty insane after being low balled by come Chevy Dealers in the 60-70k range because of the high mileage. Does Carmax go even lower?
He has a 2022 C8R Edition C8 Corvette coming and already had a 600LT Mclaren as well so its time for him to sell his C8 Corvette he received at the Corvette Museum and drove across the country to California.
We actually posted a Carmax C8 Corvette offer back in October 2020 so you can see the difference almost a year later the two offers. The other one was a 1LT C8 Corvette.

In these video from HorsePower Obsessed and Brink of Speed they are covering the new C8 Corvette Callaway edition debuting at Corvettes of Carlisle.
They haven’t mentioned any power increase but time will tell when they show it off at Corvettes of Carlisle. The only information provided so far is they are using new aero, a center exit exhaust, and of course it comes with or maintains the factory warranty.
The big difference is the aero kit and their big wing to get you into the Big Wang Gang! There is a chance they have access to unlock the Chevy C8 Corvette ECU but not sure on that since C8 Corvette has over the air updates now that can knock that out real quick.
We agree with HorsePower Obsessed it’s probably a little too late unless someone is a hardcore Callaway enthusiast since the C8 Z06 is coming out with multiple variants soon.
They better come with a pretty big engine upgrade which the C8 Corvette seems to be limited at that 600-650HP mark before the current Tremac Dual Clutch Transmission starts slipping. Hopefully they will have an axel upgrade too since they are known to break.

In the latest video from Horsepower Obsessed he breaks an Axle drag racing his C8 Corvette.
His first run against a 2006 Z06 that ran a 11.3 was one of his best yet a 11.5 in the quarter mile but when he tried to line up again he broke an Axle which the C8 Corvettes are known to do especially with drag racing.
He knew right away it was an Axel “because they are weak” and the car was fine otherwise and still driving.
I BROKE my C8 Corvette! THIS part is VERY weak from factory.
Back when they first came out and someone added NOS they broke the Axel on the C8 Corvette as well as you can see in the video below.
Also, we have heard from a Chevy Dealer that there has been a lot of the axels blow out especially at the boot vs the actual shaft breaking.
Worlds First Broken C8 Corvette!
The best thing you can do if you are going to drag race your C8 Corvette or run a ton of launch control launches over time is to upgrade the C8 Corvette Axels. There is an aftermarket Axel many C8 Corvette owners have used from Cicio Performance to Emelia Hartford and they used Driveshaft Shop 1400HP Axles.
Check out this video from SOS Customz as they reveal the first ever production StreetHunter C8 designed by the team of TJ Hunt.
We have been following the TJ Hunt Street Hunter C8 Corvette Wide Body Kit since the beginning as you can see here and here.
They have been working finishing this C8 Corvette wide body kit since December 2020. If you go to their “C8 Corvette” collection the only thing available is the front splitter as of this post.
Next they mention they are going to add an airbag suspension to be able to raise and lower this wide body C8 Corvette. TJ Hunt said as soon as it lowered and bagged and they take photos they will be selling it first come first serve and only had about 5 kits available.
Check out this video from Gabe Rolf Cars and his update on his new transmission, AC repair, and cats. It cost over $26,000 to fix the AC compressor, transmission, and cats. It cost him only $16.00 since everything was under warranty of course.
