Guys at Hot Rod ripped off the fiberglass from a 1985 Corvette and shaved 900 pounds off the weight.
They converted the 1985 C4 Vette into an amazing Corvette-kart. Naturally, the result went faster, stopped quicker, and handled better.
They salvaged the old four-speed manual but put on new brakes, and it was off to the track to see what their “Vette-Buggy” or “Vette Cart” or “Junk Buggy” would do. Combined with a mild small-block Chevy and a stick, it makes for scorching performance and excellent donuts.
Although the C7 produces about twice as much horsepower than the Corvette-kart, it weighs more. The two take it for a whirl around the track, and after getting their best times, the two then try to beat them in the kart.What wins, lightness or sheer power? Well, at least one of them can go off-road.
