The unique cantilever rear suspension system adjusts the ride height, ride quality, and handling performance of the rear suspension. A pair of rear stabilizers eliminate any rear suspension wheel hop. A Wilwood brake clutch pedal assembly and dual master brake cylinders deliver instant fluid pressure to the large Wilwood six-piston front calipers and four-piston rear calipers, which apply instant clamping power to the massive Wilwood 14-inch rotors.

This incredible '57 Chevy rolls on a set of Budnik Muroc II polished aluminum 20x8-inch front and 22x11-inch rear wheels consumed in BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 245/35ZR20 front and rear 265/35ZR22 rubber.



Jim Watkins at Watkins Racing Development in Bakersfield built a potent '06 Corvette LS2 6.0L 404ci engine. The LS2 aluminum block received a pair of RHS performance aluminum cylinder heads and Kinsler EFI system with 6-inch by 2-1/8-inch, 180-degree, fluted velocity stacks, with aluminum fuel rails. An ATI Super Dampener absorbs any engine harmonics. The Meziere electronic water pump eliminates robbing valuable horsepower and torque. A Woodward power steering rack receives muscle from a Concept One power steering pump. Rodger designed and fabricated a pair of 34-inch equal length headers by using 2-inch 4-, 6-, and 8-inch radius SPD U-bend tubes that merge into a 3-inch collector and a 2-1/2-inch reducer. The 2-1/2-inch exhaust flows into an X-pipe to equalize the dual exhaust before entering a pair of 15x6-inch round, 3-inch inlet/outlet DNA cylindrical stainless steel mufflers.
