MAZMART 13B vs 600 hp Corvette

This is a full race 2011 SCCA RX-7 that we build engines for. All R&D including dyno work for this car is done here at Mazmart by Rick Engman. The Corvette is making around 600 rwhp. The RX-7 driver is Jeff Dernehl of Roswell Outback Automotive in Roswell GA. He owns the car and fabricates most everything on it. He generally kicks *** and has been breaking track records throughout the US.

Enjoy!


Paul.

6:0something- dang it drive thru the dirt there it works all the time on the time on my ps3!!
8:2x- traffic is abitch

ya know hwy that corvette stayed ahead for so long? its like the fox and the rabbit. who wins the chase between the fox and the rabbit most of the time ? the rabbit because he's running for his life and the fox is just getting his lunch.

in this case that 'vette fella could hear that hornets nest chasing him the whole time and was running for his life

Thanks E. The 7 is really well sorted down to ratios, weight distribution, aero. The full works.

The way the gap closed going into the turns after that fastest straight was impressive. I'm really surprised the 7 didn't take the vette considering the fact that the advantage the vette had in the straights was almost completely gone before going into the turns.

Was the vette driver hitting the brakes too early or is that 7 just that much better?

Ha ha! It's all Red Line in that car. 50WT Racing oil for the engine and the pre-mix is Red line as well.

They both won their classes. The RX-7 is SCCA GT2 I believe and he was attacking a car in a higher class. He beats higher class people regularly.

SWEET! Nothing like light weight, an engine with a large usable rpm and world class brakes.
Rx7's after years and years--continue to embarass much more "faster" cars.

Thats the ONE thing I dont like about Road Atlanta. The back straight is nothing but a drag race. They need to shorten it about 1/8 of a mile!
Another thing --I do bet that Corvette driver was much more "tired" after the race. Those things are a beast to drive. Course the 7 guy probably couldnt hear a thing afterward!

Amazing car and amazing driver.
The difference in race lines says a lot about the different cars' capabilities.

Especially towards the end where it looked like his tires were going. He was really sliding it trough the corners where the Rx7 looked like it was still just cruising through his line.
