I went to see the C8.R yesterday at Kennedy Space Center. Looked good to me in person! I got some detail photos of the car (front and back) in there.

Thanks for the preparation pictures, looks to be better than their produced pictures. And I think GM has a big center setup for it in the paddock,I couldn't tell if it was GM or Porsche but it was a hella garage being set up last weekend in Vendor Village.

Yeah I'd expect a big setup for this and their usual setup at Road Atlanta. They said this was the car that tested at Sebring and they have a second car for testing now.

Granted, it sounds like the Super GT spec/LMP2 spec Nissan VK45 engine, which was a 4.5 liter flat crank V8, or the Gibson GK428 LMP2 engine, which is a 4.2 liter flat crank V8.

And whatever the displacement, I doubt that it's a pushrod engine, which is a first for a racing Corvette since the start of the IMSA program in 1999.
Sorry I missed this earlier, but it sounds like we are hearing something similar!

This dinosaur needs to change though, because I'm a pushrods or die kinda guy.

Sounds like we'll be down one Cadillac for 2020, AXR to just the Whelen entry next season.

Feel bad for the employees big time. This is by far the biggest issue here. Somebody has GOT to give these guys some work in any way shape or form. Motor racing (regardless of series) or in automotive business.

Just speaking from the on track product, could we see the Daytona 24 at a 38-42 car grid? Would not be the worst thing actually considering how reliable the cars are. Probably will just have 5-7 cars drop out these days. So keep that in mind everybody.

Maybe plus 1 Mazda if you can believe MP and Dagys. But what's to come from Taylor moving from WTR, can Wayne find a replacement and does he pay the kid what he'd have to pay another pro?

Well there is it, flat-plane 5.5L engine in the C8.R.

Liveries different for the 3 and 4 next season as well

https://sportscar365.com/imsa/iwsc/c...ils-confirmed/

From S365:
The engine, producing 500 horsepower and 480 foot-pounds of torque, limited per GTE regulations, has been paired with a new compact Xtrac six-speed sequential gearbox that was developed specifically to provide room for a race-specific diffuser.

Louth said the biggest gains with the mid-engine layout has been with an improved weight distribution and aerodynamics

Kinda surprised that I was right with the engine displacement given how it sounded in videos. Only reason I guessed that displacement was the block might be LS/LT based.

I don't know where to put this, but there's some historic IMSA content in there. Racing engineers from IMSA and NASCAR demonstrating illegal mods they've run over the years. It's hilarious and brilliant.
