CORVETTE TODAY - Kevin Mackay Talks About The Cunningham Corvette & Bringing It Back To Life

In 1960, Briggs Cunningham took 3 Corvettes to France to race at Le Mans. After that race, the cars were brought back to the United States, put back to original and sold to consumers. The #3 car was recovered about put back to the way it was when it raced in 1960 at Le Mans and is owned by a private owner. https://youtu.be/_g_9Eah8pS8; https://podcasts.adorilabs.com/corve...FbtXiohpLYxLCh The car is owned by Bruce Meyers of the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. But what happened to the car? After a long legal battle, Kevin Mackay from Corvette Repair in Long Island, New York, has been putting this historic Corvette back to it's original 1960 livery for the past year (after it was purchased by Briggs Cunningham's family at auction). Kevin comes back on CORVETTE TODAY to tell the story of the Cunningham Corvette and to tell you when and where you can see this car...with its two siblings!

    AS an FYI, the CF front splitter is just a screw on. It is very very easy to install. I'm sure it will only be like $1,200 or less after market. Something to think about to save a couple grand.
    I'm leaning more towards aftermarket as well. There are still a few more months but I have already found wheels I will enjoy more so I am sure there will be other items that will draw my attention.

      From the visualizer, it shows a body color rear deck spoiler. There is a visible carbon option that one can click on. I'd like to get a carbon flash rear spoiler, but now, it is not listed in the visualizer. So every E-Ray has the same height rear spoiler, apparently.

      The base visualizer image has the car with no front splitter at all. Which, as you said, would make the rig aerodynamically-unbalanced. Strange.

      There is an optional carbon fiber splitter. So the current options are none, or visible carbon fiber. Again I'd like the carbon flash front splitter as well.
      If you look closely the front of the Eray and z06 has a body colored section under the front bump

      unfortunately it’s body colored and it balances out the aero

      the rear spoiler on the Eray generates about 16 pounds of downforce less than the z51 but stock
      its pretty to many

        Thanks JB, but I'm not sure what you are referring to when you say the "front bump."

        Here is the base image on the visualizer when all the exterior options are unchecked. There is no extender spoiler, AKA, lip spoiler.

        And when one clicks on the "Carbon Flash Metallic Painted Carbon Fiber Ground Effects", this is how it looks.

        Question : Does anyone know if the carbon flash spoiler on the Stingray was painted over fiberglass, or painted over carbon fiber?

          Sorry spell check redirected .

          if you look at the bottom lip of the 1st photo shown above there is a line running across the bottom lip of the bumper cover. It’s a very small body colored splitter.

          that extra drop of an inch below the bumper cover in body color I believe is balancing the air flow and balancing the downforce front to back.

          if you opt for a bigger splitter it comes in black or carbon fiber but stock n/c is a very small body colored splitter standard.

          I could be wrong yet I’d be surprised corvette engineering would let the Eray or z06 go without a balanced downforce front to back

          thanks for posting up the photos in torch red my favorite color!

            So what you are saying is that we should be for wicker bills at the same time as the front splitter? 😜

              I tried to build my ERay yesterday and the site wasn't working. I will try again today.

                Actually, I never had it long enough to sell it, and there was no trade-up.

                I was at the drag strip in late 2020 and the car made an un-commanded 90 degree right turn at 63 mph. I hit the concrete barrier head-on at 5.5 G's of force according to the Lotus Cosworth data log. To this day we don't know if a half-shaft broke or I just hit some unseen antifreeze or oil on the track. We did not have a chance to do any forensic evaluation after the crash to confirm the broken half-shaft theory. I signed up for Test-N-Tune that day (luckily) so the car was fully insured for full replacement value, or $106k+ in December 2020. I have been living out my C8 fantasies here at the forum vicariously through you guys since then.

                That is why I am so hot on the E-Ray. AWD is a massive safety feature, and a mid-engine configuration is no guaranty of full traction.
                I had that happen to me at the track. The car broke traction in second.
                Normally I 'm looking for it but it was C-6 with no lsd and TC was off I was caught off guard. With very good luck after being side ways
                pointed at the wall I was able to get turned and pointed at the other wall and was able to go back straighten out with out hitting the wall. Went passed the booth they said they want to see you in the tower. I went upstairs and they were still talking giggles and giddy that I was able to save it! They said that was one fine SAVE! They thought I was DONE!

                  Exactly if you can find the right vendor you can get the GM factory spoiler GM installs on the new Corvette's. Vendors make all them. The C7Z06 spoilers and skirts were made by ACS composites. I forgot the half price part!
