The four-time event winner Matt Field introduces Worl’s 1st Manual C8 Corvette drift car. Look at the transformation from a flood-damaged chassis into a full FD-spec drift car! The goal is to complete it in a year, have some demo run next year, and maybe compete in 2025!
In this episode, we shift our focus on building out the dry-sump system. Since Gary from ARE has helped so much with the dry-sump system in the C6 Corvette, it was a no-brainer to contact him for support on this build. Once we get everything mocked up and placed, it’s time to put the LS back in to work on plumbing the lines. After that, we dive into one of the most important parts of this build, the transaxle! We opted for a Weddle 5-speed sequential transaxle, which should hopefully hold all of the power and clutch-kicking we plan on doing!Matt Field
