Upgrading Corvette Brakes, Wheels and Spark Plugs

Upgrading Corvette Brakes, Wheels and Spark Plugs

In this installment of Sports Car U we are posting a video about brake, wheel and spark plugs upgrades on a C6 Corvette.

With the new C7 Corvette Stingray about to go on sale, the C6 will soon become a more affordable option. These are great sports cars that provide a lot of power. Even with all the power already available you can add a supercharger or turbocharger to the V8 monster and give it true supercar performance.

If you decide to tune your Corvette there are a couple of things that need to be remembered, but are often forgotten. With more power you will need to upgrade the brakes. This includes using better brake discs as well as better brake calipers and pads. This will help you stop safely if you put your foot down hard on the gas.

Once you upgrade your brakes, you’ll also want to make sure you have plenty of grip and have tires that can handle high speeds (especially if you want to take it on the track). This is also a good time to upgrade your rims, if you want a look other than stock.

Lastly, you want to make sure that the engine gets the best spark available, so a spark plug upgrade is a good idea. Modern spark plug’s advanced design offer advantages over traditional plugs and help ensure your fuel is burned fully.

In this video Stacey David show you how to upgrade your brakes, wheels and spark plugs. Check out the video and then let use know of any questions in the comments.
