You’ve made all of the desired power upgrades on your C5 or C6 Corvette – now all you need is a clutch that can hold the new-found power and bring that racing technology to the street. Zip’s new Corvette Mantic Dual Disc Clutches are an excellent choice for 1997-2013 performance modified Corvette owners who are looking to maintain pure street drivability.
Historically, the biggest complaints against dual-disc clutches is that the surface materials have been too aggressive for street use and the clutch pedal pressure too intense. The Mantic’s organic disc material offers excellent holding capabilities but does not sacrifice any of the OEM drivability. The HD pressure plate increases the pedal pressure from 10 lbs to 14 lbs, which is nearly unnoticeable, while the clutch assembly is capable of holding 780 ft/lbs of torque.
Simply put, these Corvette Parts increase the clamping power and reduce the pedal pressure.
Built with a steel flywheel that is SFI rated and an aluminum pressure plate, Mantic clutch kits are made with premium quality materials designed to perform and last the distance. Each kit includes the complete clutch and flywheel assembly and a new OEM slave cylinder with bearing.
Now you really can have it all with your C5 or C6 Corvette – power and drivability!

Today is the first day of Spring – no matter what the weather outside your window says! Even if you’re still waiting for the weather to catch up with the calendar, there’s plenty you can do right now to get your Corvette ready for the car shows, road trips and cruise-ins that are just around the corner.
Whether your Corvette has endured its fair share of rain, sleet and snow or has spent the winter months tucked away safely in the garage, it’s time to clean her up and get her ready for the driving season.
Zip has the best Corvette Car Care Products available – from Adam’s Polishes to 303 Corvette Convertible Top Protection. If you really want to make it easy on yourself, consider an Adam’s Corvette Detail Kit. Adam’s polishes, when used correctly, have proven to clean and detail a Corvette to even the most particular enthusiasts’ standards. That’s why Zip uses Adam’s products on both company-owned and customer Corvettes.
Before you head out for those car shows, consider purchasing a set of Corvette Race Ramps. Not only are they great for working under your car, they can also get your Corvette some extra attention at the car show! Tilt or raise your Corvette and set it apart from the crowd. Consider Corvette Trailer Ramps for less hassle when loading your lowered Corvette onto the trailer.
And don’t forget the small details! Whether you’re going to spend your day on the road, in the stands or beside your car, pack in style with a Corvette Insulated Cooler. The C6 Corvette Racing Duffel Cooler has a 12 can capacity and includes outside zipper pockets for keys, phones and whatever else you’ll need during the day. Embroidered Corvette racing emblem on top.
Old man winter is slowly losing his grip on most of us. Warmer days are ahead and that means car shows and cruise-ins! Is your Corvette ready? If not, Zip can help -and save you some money in the process!

We all know that Corvettes make a lot of power stock. But since when is stock power ever enough for the true Corvette enthusiast?
Corvette owners are always on the quest for just a little more sound out of the exhaust tips. To get that ever-so-sweet sound and the seat-of-your-pants rush that follows from your C6, Zip recommends a set of Kooks Long Tube Headers. They will help bring back that famous rumble from the 60′s and you’ll see upwards of an 25-30 horsepower increase at the rear wheels!
So what does that type of an increase really look like? Consider this: if your Corvette has 400 horsepower stock at the flywheel, you’ll enjoy a new rating of about 440-450 horsepower. What could be better than that? You get more HP than a 1967 big block Corvette and a distinctive growl while maintaining more than 20 mpg. It’s the best of both worlds!
Follow along with Zip’s technical article “2005-2013 C6 Corvette Kooks Header Installation” as we install a set of Kook’s 1-7/8 headers on a 2005 Daytona Orange C6.
No doubt about it – this is a tough install all the way around. We do not recommended this project for a novice do-it-yourself weekend warrior. But our article offers step-by-step installation instructions with photos that will help you get the job done. It’s well worth your time and hard work. Kooks headers are second to none when it comes to modifying a 6th generation Corvette. If it’s state-of-the-art sound and performance you’re after, you can’t go wrong with Kooks.
