Joel Feingold is the owner of the amazing `98 Corvette, but like many other enthusiasts he hoped his car shall give a more mean sound. In order to achieve this, he tucked in an exhaust system from Borla. The installation did not end up here, He also featured new headers, an engine tuned for more power, air conditioning system and so on. As years went by, he wantd more and more power. His dream was to achieve above 800 horses and he did! Once he achieved this, he started participating in various street events. He even had a favourite track. It was in sponsorship of MKM Racing and it was called the Mojave Mile.
This video that we`ve uploaded here, shows Joel making few standing start runs to over 200 mph! When it comes to his driving technique, he says that he revs the engine to 2,500 rpm, let the clutch out and bring the Corvette to the point of losing traction. He short shifts it at 5800 [rpm] into second and continue to fight for traction. Now he shifts into third at 6300rpm where he may to go wide open throttle through the rest of the gears to sixth at 200+ mph.
