    Looks like the sugar scoop inlet feeds both the intake manifold and cooling ducts for the rear engine compartment. Interesting. The intake plenum is huge, but the ducting to the manifold is small. I would guess the "choke plate" is in the scoop plenum chamber with a sizable bellmouth in front of it. Looks like they are either having some issues running on the Daytona track or they are sandbagging, LOL. The Rolex 24 should be fun, BUT brand new race cars usually don't win the first time out. I'm just sayin' !

      I find it interesting that the intake to the plenum is tapered. Also that engine is low low low in the car, wish we had a picture of it out of the car.

                Another one of our teammates Bob B had a chance to video in the C8.R garage and also confirmed the flat plane crank and overhead CAMs

                  That dah thing got a Hemi ....lol. All kidding aside thanks for the video...now more please. Thanks

                  Maybe removing the 7400 rpm limit might help with the 1 second off lap times. Bop sucks on a brand new configuration race car.

                      Here is how the GTLMs will line up for the Rolex 24 hour race later this month

                      What the heck happened to the #3 C8.R ? :-(

                        It looks like the BOP is tighter than ever. The #3 Corvette is less than 0.5 seconds slower than the #4. It looks #4 is as fast as the 911's - that is a very good omen. The next test is how well the car holds up for 24 hours. Should be fun to
                        watch !!

                          The C8R is hallow under the shell. Except, Just the stuff it needs for going fast. Look under the wheel wells in the video. Open space.

                            This was qualifying for garage and pit choices and not for starting spot at the 24, just wanted to clarify that qualifying for the 24 will be Thursday January 23rd.
