LITE↯BLOX powered Corvette Z06 Tracktool Monster

“I have already driven a bunch of fast rides -previously the SL AMG with 700NM torque-
but nothing like the Z06 so far.
Over half a ton lighter than the SL, old school 2-valve,
reving up to 7,000rpm, with manual transmission.
A real sports car…?
No – a street legel race car from factory!”

In 1st gear up to 100 km/h without shifting?

A new car and you have to get used to the little things…
For our customer Thomas and the Z06 it was the manual gearbox: Sometimes he took the 3rd instead of the 1st gear and not even noticed when the 7011ccm spread over 8 cylinders providing torque in abundance.

The engine revs like hell – toxic from 3,500rpm, 1st gear well over 100km/h, 2nd gear about 150, when the 325 rear tires are trying to overtake the body.
In wet conditions, Thomas rarely and reluctantly drives – no fun, if you have to drive like a raw egg on the gas pedal. Since it was risky even in 3rd gear, speed cellar and then full throttle, rather not. Sometimes it also twitched in 4th gear.
But you can also cruise, a climb up, 4th gear from the speed cellar and you can feel that there is something serious under the hood.

Moreover Thomas spend his “Vette” some small but nice upgrades:
Thus, the production engine was completely revised and runs now in the race setup on ethanol (E85) with nearly 600 horses – unbridled power that communicates about powerful 335 semislicks with the asphalt.
Concerning the necessary driving dynamics, a racing suspension is used plus bucket seats and extra light wheels to slim down the 1418kg from factory.

At the beginning of the 2019 season, Thomas also said goodbye to his heavy lead-acid starter battery and has been using our LB28XX (2.8kg) flagship model ever since.
The LITE↯BLOX saves an additional 20kg to the standard battery in this vehicle and thanks to I.K.O.S. function simply switch off for the winter season plus protects the precious ride from theft by our integrated A.V.A.T. feature.

The BMW E36 325i “Ultimate Sleeper” tracktool

“plan was to have a good running car, but not in the M3 look as most people do”

The <1200kg BMW 325i stroker – powered by LITE↯BLOX LBtrack battery

If Jan does not work on his tracktool, he earns his bun as a developer in the automotive industry and also works as a personal driving coach for racetrack and driving safety.

The E36 was bought as 325i in the standard spec without M-package out of 3rd hand and checkbook maintained.

The plan was to have a cheap club sport conversion to have fun on the racetrack. But also motivated by his job as an instructor it was already obvious in the first conversion phase, that it will go a bit more into detail…

Today, Jan drives one of the fastest E36 325i on the Nordschleife and apart from a handful of components nothing seems to be stock anymore:

To save weight, everything was removed and a fiberglass dashboard was used plus reasonable seats, straps and a roll cage for saftey issues.

On the engine Jan has given the engine builder Oliver Sturm Concept complete confidence to built a 2.5L stroker, delivering an appropriate power output.

Of course, the chassis component also had to be adapted to the overall concept. This is where Carl Schwarz from Custom Racetec put his hands. Thus, everything is now stored in Uniball, the body has been adapted in the rear of the fenders to the 235/45 DIREZZA tires on 9×17 MOTEC wheels. In addition, a KW Clubsport suspension has been adapted with minor changes in spring rates.

To fuel the overall concept of the “E36 325i Sleeper” saving more kilos, Jan relies on our brand new LITE↯BLOX LBtrack (2.3kg) battery model with matching adapter plate, saving around 9 additional kilos onto the previously used lightweight lead-acid battery, while providing even more cranking power:

Davids road legal Toyota Supra dragster

“My name is David & I own
one of the most extreme street-legal cars in Germany… “

The 10XXPS Supra Dragster – powered by LITE↯BLOX LBtrack

The customer bought the car as a started and partially completely disassembled project about 5 years ago – the goal was to crack the performance mark of 1000PS right from the beginning and so almost everything was turned upside down…

From the complete TRD wide body kit via one-piece propshaft to the huge turbocharger providing whopping 1073whp @ 2bar while block and cylinder head were built by Thomas Franz, one of the most renowned engine builders in Germany:

The engine is monitored by a SYVECS S6 ECU in conjunction with a TOUCAN touch screen which provides the driver with all important data and various driving modes. A safety cell also found its place in the painted interior. Contact with the road is provided by WELD RTS forged wheels from the USA (VA 275×18 “/ HA 325×15”), to which the rear-wheel drive Supra demands a lot when accelerating:

“The car is just a lot of fun and requires the driver’s highest concentration. 1073whp and 1005NM at about 1600kg vehicle weight – almost 1.5 kilos to move one horsepower is quite fast I would say…”

To start the metallic gray monster, David relies on our brand new LITE↯BLOX LBtrack (2.2kg) plus adapter plate since this season, saving hardly 20kg to the previously used stock battery plus providing enough cranking power in every situation:
