Anyone ever hear about this guy/car? Apparently he cleans up in it. I always like seeing 4th gen's go around corners.

That's pretty unique. They're no Corvette, but it would be cool to tear around a road course in an Fbody. So much torx.

I happened to see that car and met the driver last sept at Sonoma Raceway. Great guy. I was watching the WTCC races and the USTCC was there. He was signing hero cards and hell, fans got signed used racing slicks. Unlike some of the other racers there, he was letting people check the car out, kids got to sit in it and more. For his race he was up against some pretty amazing cars, including the PTG BMW M3 which nearly wrecked him in turn 2.

He has a web site Kurtz Motorsports Group | US Touring Car Championships | Western Endurance Racing Was a featured driver for a month on Forza Motorsport too. I tried to beat him, but alas I couldn't - I think only 30-40 people out of some 20k or more actually got faster times then him in the game in the rivals event.

So much Torq and HP

It has a 422cui LS3..... 650RWHP and 532ftlb tq

Makes my LPE 383 LT1 seem underpowered and useless... Still trying to figure out how they got a LS into a LT car... That's SOME serious work AFAIK
