    LS6 needs a plate to get down, LS1 needs cylinder heads and cam to get up to 380

    That is correct. But the long term HP setting is 380 RWHP.

    Yes, that can be done either via a tune or a restrictor plate.

    the website probably needs an update to reflect that. It only has 2017 listed at that power.

    Default Wilwood brakes

    Does anyone know if Wilwood has plans to make a complimentary rear brake kit to go along with the front kit that is legal for Spec Corvette?

    As of now we are running the OEM rear brakes. We have not found them to be a problem racing. The rotors are open though, so you can run an aftermarket that is much more durable than OEM.

    I personally like the Performance AFX set-up. OEM rotors are cheap, but these things will last for two years of full season racing and track days - C5 Rear 2 Piece Rotors for Stock Calipers

    Single adjustable coil over suspension, metal spherical bearings for the A-arms, front and rear racing sway bars with mounts/bushings, front and rear toe hooks. List price is $6,200. Registered Spec Corvette racer pays less than half of that.

    Yes, Trackspec is ready now.

    With Wilwood we need to follow-up because we are not happy with a change of race pad selection they made. We are working on that.....

    Had a dilemma while Ordering my aFe Spec Corvette package today.

    Talked to Mark at aFe this afternoon to order my spec corvette suspension kit, which Mark took the time to explained everything that is included in the kit. Awesome Package especially for the
    price. He then told me they had the sway bars and shocks in stock, but they have to make the bushings and camber plates, which will be made and shipped next week. Here is my Dilemma?
    Mark then asked me if I wanted him to send the sway bars and shocks now or wait until everything is ready? Hmmmmmm! (like a kid at Christmas my first thought was send what you
    have, but my second thought was easier to talk my way out of one big package then several small ones). Can't wait to get the package installed. Thanks to Oli and John for starting
    Spec Corvette, and to all the current sponsors and future sponsors. I look forward to Spec Corvette growing!
