BMX's old Z06 CorvetteA couple days ago I was contacted on our Facebook page by a guy named Henry saying, "Not sure if it matter, but I have one of the old vettes that used to run with y'all."  Well Henry, it matters!  We always love to hear how some of the cars that have left the crew are doing!  Lets face it, too many of the ShockerRacing Member cars are currently in graveyards and we are always glad to hear that one of them is still alive and well!  The car he was referring to was Brandon's 2002 Blacked out C5 Z06 and he had included a photo.

ShockerRacing.com Girls Angela and Chloe by Dan Joy PhotographyMany people knew of "SmoothBlue" before it was even a member of Shocker Racing.  It was previously owned by, Larry, the former shop manager at Speed Inc.  This gorgeous Electron Blue Z06 was fairly well known in the Corvette community for having been well maintained and nicely modded by a well respected tuner in the Vette world.  Perry had already had his eyes on Larry's C5 Z06 when he found out it was for sale back in 2006. He began working with Larry and in just a short time Perry was the proud owner.  When he picked it up it already had a SI007 Cam, ported heads and Stainless Works 1 7/8" headers along with 3.90 gears.  The car was making a healthy 427 horsepower and had run well into the low 11's in the quarter mile.  Perry enjoyed it like this for a short time before deciding that he needed more power...

ShockerRacingGirls Angela and Chloe by Dan Joy PhotographyShortly after Jon's 2007 Lemans Blue Z51 Corvette caught fire in an accident in June of 2010 things were looking kind of down.  Work was slow and as bad as Jon wanted to run out and find a replacement for his baby he knew the smart thing to do was wait out the slow times until he found some steady work.  An opportunity to move from Chicago to California for a new job came up and he jumped on it.  During the year that Jon was living in Cali, he found an Electron Blue 2002 C5 Z06 with 26,000 miles on it for sale in Northern California on Corvette Forum.  He fell in love with it immediately after flying out there to check it out and drove it home!  The Z06 was nicely modded with a Vararam Intake, Mild Cam and Heads package(to pass California Emmisions), Belanger Headers, Corsa X-Pipe with high flow cats, and a modified titanium exhaust with the bypass mod.  With this selection of mods the car made 387 rear wheel horsepower and 387 rear wheel torque.  This was a good start but this power wasn't going to be enough for long...

ShockerRacing.com Girl Angela by Dan Joy PhotographyShockerRacing first met Spdkilz, Carleton, through a mutual friend one summer day in 2003.  It was a ShockerRacing.com track day and we were heading out to a test and tune night at Route 66 Raceway.  He was this skinny punk kid with long scraggly hair covered by trucker hat(thanks Ashton Kutcher).  Our first thought was does daddy know that this kid stole his Z06 to take it to the drag strip?  We made our way out to Route 66 to get some runs in and of course had a little fun on the way up there.  Once we arrived at the track we had the chance to talk with Carleton, we began to realize that this kid was truly a Corvette enthusiast.  He had done many custom mods to his Vette that we had not seen before.  This C5 was his baby and it was clear that he had spent countless hours getting to know his Z06.  He had his own website for the Vette, www.spdkilz.com, which featured some amazing photos he had taken of the Vette along with tech tips on how to do some awesome custom mods.  Many people knew the site for his write-ups on the interior LED lighting installs, showing people how to replace the boring off-white lights that fill the C5 interior.  At the time he just had an intake and a Speed Inc. Tune done but had much bigger plans for the future of Spdkilz...
