First Drive in the TJ Hunt Widebody C8 Corvette!

TJ Hunt’s World Famous TWIN TURBO Corvette C8 Just Got Faster!

In this latest video Late Model Racecraft has TJ Hunt’s Widebody C8 Corvette back in Texas and still trying to refine the top mounted Twin Turbo kit so it won’t spin as much and the transmission won’t slip.

It seems like those are the biggest issues with Twin Turbo C8 Corvettes the ECU is locked so they have to use piggy back systems like MoTeC or FuelTech and the dual clutch transmission can’t handle the increased horsepower so Dodson clutches has to keep building stronger clutches to test to get it just right.

Late Model Racecraft doesn’t share any times or horsepower numbers in this video but they have mentioned it was over 900HP previously. They mention a 1.9 60 foot with the tires spinning and in future videos they might take this to the track for a quarter mile time and possible some roll racing.
