Sounds like Brian Harrison to me. This it?



You can find more on his car <A HREF="http://www.xtremecorvettes.com/bharrison.htm">here</A>, not sure how updated it is tho. Pretty sweet car ... sounds GOOD and looks really mean with those 335 meats in the back.

<I>Edit: BTW - there's a few vids of him racing on www.racingfreaks.net. They just say, "The LT4", but it's him.</I>

later,

Grand sport is a 96 model car, they quit making ZR1s in 95. It should have 315/35/17s from the factory on the rear. The 96+ cars will have add on fender flares in the rear whereas the on a ZR1 the body is actually wider. The ZR1 also has the third brake light on the glass vs in the rear bumper cover.

335's are what come on Vipers. I'm not sure of the widest tire / low profile. 335's is about the widest I've heard of (street tire at least). This is probably the car, you just aren't used to seeing that wide of tire on a Vette. They look HUGE.

thats him then..... looked unreal..... do they make a 335 for a 18 inch rim?
Yep ... Vipers run 335/30/18's. It's more about the width of the rim though. For 335's you better have an 11in or wider rim! My Lightning has a 10in and runs 295's, you -might- be able to squeeze 315's on 10's, but not 335's.

I want to have my s-truck back halfed in the future retian the stock suspension and everything just move the frame rails in a bit. very easy and not expensive to have done with who I know. and I want to have my Z-Oh's widened form 10.5 to whatever it takes to get those on. should be sweet. I run 285's on it now and they slightly slope in but I have to do it for clearance issues. 335's should look right under there.
