Default Z06 LOL Track Build

Z06 LOL Track Build



History:
I purchased this RS in fall of 2012 to build for the 2013 season as a track slut.
This is replacing my 2008 STi that was a little unpractical for a track car financially.



Goal:
The goal of this RS is to create a well balanced track car on a budget that in the end will be more cost effective over my 08 STi, yet be just as much fun to drive. Over the course of the 2013 season I plan on getting into time attack and eventually (2014-2015) get into wheel to wheel racing.
For the 2013 season the car will stay street legal as it will not be trailered to all events.

The tear down
At first I was not certain of how far I wanted to strip the RS as this was still going to be a street car from time to time. As I started to gut the car it made me decide fairly quickly that not much was going back in.

I started into the car by removing all of the seats, carpet, headliner, panels.


Pulling out all of the sound detaining was quite fun. . .


I kept at the removal of all the odds and ends of the interior.




Dash out


Motor Out

When I think of Z06 I think a Corvette...

Are you going to put a Corvette Z06 engine in this car?

Long block out of an 05 STi...
Z06 LOL simply means what it says, most guys with vettes never expect subies to be anything special. My best friend also tracks a Z06 so my way of calling him out
