It's not as bad as you're making it sounds. Throw a trans brace on it if you're that worried about it. No need to convert to solid axle. If you do that might as well get a f body.

This.
A corvette is a purpose built road race handling car, putting a solid axle in it would be extremely counterproductive. If you want a stait line only car buy something else.

I agree. Vette is right up there for a car that corners.

We still don't know what the OP intended use is, still sounds like stoplight drags with the cars on his list. Theres no way he's talking road race with those diesel trucks.

I agree with the c5 vette.

I had a white 2004 C5 vette. Awesome car.

Ive owned nsx, camaro, vipers, bmws, and currently an Audi R8.

Im being 100% honest here....

When I see a clean C5 vette....Even while driving my R8....

I try not to look and act all uppity and superior lol...

But the truth is that a clean C5 is such a nice looking desighn. Im looking hard out of my side view lol.

They are very eye catching!!!!

They sit as low as my R8 and those 4 brake lights look really awesome.

I really feel they aged well and look better now than they did back in 97.

You just dont see sports cars that weight 3250 pounds and have nice curves like that anymore.

A modded C5 gets my vote

Buy my Formula, take the additional money and buy a rear end and put a bigger cam in it with a 150 shot and hurt some feelings. :p

Basically the intentions won't be a 100% drag car nor would it be road racing (not a supporter of street racing). More of a head-turner I'd drive when the weather is nice.

Anyone seen those new Texas Throttle videos featuring a couple Paxton 5.0's (I think one was white and the other silver I recall) outgunning some big HP LS cars? Granted it's a Ford and this is an LS forum, just gotta say wow. So I started looking into the 302 coyotes. Makes me scratch my head how they're getting so much power from the factory out of those.
