It didn’t take long for the accolades to start rolling in for the C7 Corvette Stingray – and we’re not surprised!
Just this weekend, Automobile Magazine named the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray its Automobile of the Year. According to the magazine’s editor-in-chief, “The automobile of the year has to set a standard. It has to break a category in a way that really excites us.” The magazine praised the Corvette’s overall design, performance, quality and comfort.
An excerpt from the article announcing the honor says “The car’s performance is simply awesome. In today’s era of horsepower inflation, the big V-8′s 455 hp, or 460 hp with the performance exhaust, may not be numbers made for bar boasts — we’ll have to wait for the Z06 for that — but you get the impression that reaching some marketing-driven power figure was not the point. The point was to smoke tires, roar out of turns, and storm down the straights — oh, and do all that without quaffing unleaded. As it turns out, this new 6.2-liter proves to be highly effective at all those things.”

Is your fuel dash gauge acting up? When it starts to register intermittently, fluctuate with its readings or just plain stops working, you can usually trace it back to the fuel tank sending unit.
These units are always sitting in fuel. They are constantly moving and they are subjected to vibrations. That’s why they are most often the cause for faulty readings on the dash gauge. The good news is that replacing a Corvette fuel tank sending unit is a relatively easy job that can be performed by anyone with a few good hand tools.
Follow along with Zip’s technical article “1963-1974 Fuel Tank Sending Unit Replacement” as we walk step-by-step through the replacement process on our Project 64. We’ve even included photos with each step.
Before you start, there are some things you should keep in mind. Run as much fuel as you can out of the gas tank. It’s much easier to drain 4 or 5 gallons of gas than 20. Always work in a well ventilated area and wear eye protection… Continue reading
There’s no question that when modifying a C4 or C5 Corvette, the most overlooked system on the vehicle is the braking system. It’s possible the availability of components is partly to blame for this oversight. After all, for every 50 companies that offer horsepower upgrades, there are probably only 10 that offer proven brake system performance.
Zip excels in packaging C4 and C5 Corvette Brake Systems. We offer more than just high-end competition brake systems because we understand that not everyone wants to – or needs to – replace their entire system. Sometimes, you simply want to improve the factory system. Zip offers many affordable up-grades ranging from brake pads to a line pressure bias spring to stainless steel brake lines.
To refer to them as brake lines is a bit of a misnomer; they’re really high-tech hoses due to their construction. At the center is a flexible Teflon hose that seals in the brake fluid, just like OE brake hoses. The benefit is found in the outer shell. The Teflon hose is encased by a stainless steel braided shell. This is what gives the hose its strength and durability and is why they’re referred to as lines and not hoses. This strength and durability is precisely why stainless steel lines have been preferred over rubber hoses on race cars. However, just because Corvette Parts are on a race car doesn’t mean they should be on a street car. But it also doesn’t mean that they shouldn’t… Continue reading
