wilwood-brake-kits-featured

Brand new to Zip’s warehouse: Wilwood’s D8-6 Corvette Brake Caliper Kits that are a direct bolt-on replacement for the 1965-1982 Corvettes OE brake caliper.

Forged billet aluminum bodies, stainless steel pistons and high-temperature seals put an end to the rust, bore pitting and seal failures that plague the factory Corvette caliper design. D8-6 calipers provide both high performance and low maintenance, huge weight reduction, high temperature reliability for the street or your favorite track event and the added benefit of six piston pad clamping power.

Wilwood’s D8-6 calipers mount in the stock location over stock rotors, use the original style D8 brake pads, and fit snugly inside most 1967 or newer production wheels. Some wheels, including the 1965-1966 Corvette “JK” code steel wheels and a few aftermarket replica alloy wheels, will require a 3/16″ or wider wheel spacer for clearance.

The D8-6 Caliper Kits contain DOT compliant stainless braided brake lines and BP-10 compound high friction street brake pads. These Corvette Parts are available in clear coated cast aluminum or powder coated red or black… Continue reading

BORLA Exhaust for the C7 Corvette has arrived at Zip!

BORLA has developed a revolutionary new exhaust design with AFM/NPP valve options that enables unprecedented control over the acoustical note of your C7 Corvette’s exhaust system throughout the entire RPM range while retaining 100% of the power-adding capabilities of BORLA’s patented muffler design.

BORLA’s S-TYPE Exhaust System features the classic power sound that BORLA has been perfecting over the last 30 years. Increased sound pressure coupled with hi-flow technology allows your Corvette Stingray to breathe easier and run stronger. At low RPM (under 3500rpm) you can still have the radio on at low volume and carry-on a nice conversation. However, with increased throttle, the system wakes up and provides the full effect of the RPM range. In addition, BORLA’s new exhaust design eliminates the unwanted drone associated with performance systems providing a very comfortable sound when cruising.

The ATAK™ (Acoustically-Tuned Applied Kinetics) is the latest technology that produces the highest available dB (decibel) levels in the BORLA street-legal lineup. The ATAK Exhaust System is designed for high-performance Corvette purists who prefer exhaust notes over their stereos. With ATAK you get the best of both worlds – race proven technology from BORLA’s line of XR-1 mufflers PLUS a distinct muscle-car roar that was built specifically for the C7 Corvette. At cruise the interior sound is not overpowering – yet when driving the sound connects you to your Corvette Stingray helping you know exactly where you are in the RPM range – talk about Corvette performance at a very high level! In addition – BORLA’s new exhaust design eliminates the unwanted drone associated with performance systems providing a very comfortable sound when cruising.

Both systems are designed to fit all 2014-2015 LT1 Corvettes – including 7-speed and automatic Corvettes without any exhaust drone… Continue reading

Got your eye on a Corsa Exhaust System for your C6 or C7 Corvette? Now is the best time to snag yourself a new set of pipes!

Spend $500 or more on C6 and C7 Corsa X-Pipes or Exhaust Systems and receive a $50 rebate or spend $1,000 or more and receive a $100 rebate. Rebate offer valid for purchases made through December 31, 2014.

For years, Corsa Performance Exhaust Systems have been a leader in aftermarket exhaust. Their ability to combine performance gains plus great sound without creating interior drone is one of the major reasons C4, C5, C6 and C7 Corvette owners choose to swap their factory exhaust with a Corsa Exhaust. So how does Corsa design and manufacture a near perfect exhaust system? The answer lies in their patented RSC (Reflective Sound Cancellation) Technology.

Each Corsa Corvette Exhaust System is acoustically engineered to eliminate the specific frequencies that create “drone”. Using aerospace based technology, sound waves are targeted, reflected and eliminated without impeding air flow or sacrificing horsepower, yet still delivering the sound to fit your Corvette.

The exclusive patented RSC Muffler design delivers a bold, unique sound under throttle that defines your Corvette on the open road… Continue reading

Unlike their steel and plastic counterparts, Race Ramps are light weight, strong and stable. A must-have if you want to perform tune-ups or oil changes without the fear of skidding, slipping, sinking or crushing under pressure. Now that’s what we call worry free maintenance!

The 12″ wide – 56″ long lift ramps can hold up to 3,000 lbs. and each ramp weighs less than 10 lbs! Made from space shuttle technologies, Race Ramps will be the last set of ramps that you will ever need to purchase. Custom designed to be used on extremely low, high performance vehicles while providing 8″ of lift. And if you’re concerned about your garage surface (painted or tile), Race Ramps will not wreck your floors. The solid, unscootable design provides floor protection from scrapes, gouges and markings.

Need additional access to the under-side of your vehicle when lifted? This 2-piece design is perfect for you! Simply drive up the ramp and once your vehicle is firmly chocked in place, remove the sloped section. Now you have complete and safe access for oil changes and detailing or accessing suspension components. The 2-piece design will even fit in the rear hatch of your Corvette, making transportation easy.
