C7 Corvette Stingray Rendered as a Hennessey HPE2000 Drag Car

Some say the best photoshops are those that are somewhat based in reality. The reality is that when you see this “Hennessey HPE2000 Corvette Stingray drag car” for the first time, you may think it’s real. After all, Hennessey Performance Engineering has made a name for themselves not only bring more and more horsepower to the Corvette Stingray, but also with their radical Venom GT program as well.

But alas, this is just a photoshop, “created for competition” says the note that goes along with the posting by RC82 WORKCHOP on Facebook.

Is a Conservative ECU Tune Responsible for Power Loss on the 2015 Corvette Z06?

A conservative ECU setup by Chevrolet appears to be the cause for the power loss some 2015 Corvette Z06 owners say they are experiencing after heavy use on the highway or the track.

Some people thought the power loss might be caused by a heat soak problem, which is caused by the buildup of heat in the engine compartment after several full throttle runs. This heat cuts the efficiency of the supercharger because hot air has reduced oxygen molecule density, meaning less fuel will be burned.

[VIDEO] Vengeance Racing Upgrades Their 2015 Corvette Z06 to 660 RWHP

We’ve been talking a lot lately about the guys at Vengeance Racing and their Arctic White 2015 Corvette Z06.
