Watch AMT Motorsport’s C5 Corvette break New York Safety Track’s record by over a second

A 2017 Dodge Viper ACR held the previous record

Clifton Park-based Motorsports parts manufacturer and racing outfit AMT Motorsports brought the heat to a “home” track and reset the New York Safety Track record, beating the old track record by over a second. Covering the 2.14 mile length track in just 1:27.81, this 2004 Chevrolet Corvette bested a pro-racer and a much newer car, etching its name into the track’s history books.

Fortunately for us and as proof, AMT had Go-Pros running during the record.

The New York Safety Track is a relatively fresh track, opening just seven years ago. Carved into the woods of Jefferson, NY and with trees as safety barriers, it’s, as AMT put’s it, not safe at all.

The Corvette AMT is running is a 2004 Chevrolet Corvette powered by a bespoke Golen Engineering LS2 402ci engine. Although this engine makes 600 HP in a test cell, posts on AMT’s Instagram have this LS2 de-tuned for race duties.

AMT took the time to chronicle their record-breaking attempts in a blog post well worth a read.

The flying lap that entered the history books was on track visit number three, a track attack first attempted in May.

The first time AMT’s C5 hit the track for some fast laps, some less than ideal tires netted them into the 1:31 range.

On their second foray into history, a mis-matched set of wheels on fresh tires, although initially thought disastrous to a record, lowered the C5’s lap time to 1:29.6.

It was third times a charm this latest attempt with what sounds like the C5 finally set up correctly with the right tires and everything dialed in.

I set off on my first flying lap and tried to put everything together that I’d been working on the last 2 years.

Dipping into the 1:27’s consistently, AMT finally ticked off a 1:27.81, and the rest is history.

Although AMT shared the track with a handful of cars, they were able to carve in a flying lap with plenty of clean air in front of them. And, just by looking at the video, observing throttle inputs, oil, and, water temps, it sounds like everything was clicking along as planned.

Congrats, AMT on the record!

How long this current record will stand is only a matter of time.

Review

This my building impression of the 1/25 scale AMT/Round 2 2012 Corvette C6 convertible, curbside. It is a follow up to the "in the Box" review I wrote in May of 2012.

It figures.... .  Now that Chevrolet has introduced the C7 Corvette, I am finally getting around to building AMT/Round 2's C6 convertible.  This is a curbside kit with no options, save for a couple of decals.  Out of the box, it can be built one way—stock.

As it is basically an unbuilt promo, it goes together well.  The body needed almost no preparation, except for cleaning, prior to painting.  The factory didn't build any C6's with a  paint scheme like mine—when I started planning my build and got to looking at the body, it just seemed like a two-tone using the body's lines was a natural.  I used both Testor's One Coat lacquers and one of their candy enamels to come up with the finish you see in the pictures.

CorvetteCorvette

First I painted the body with a light-to-medium green color One Coat Lacquer (I don't remember the name and the color is discontinued).  Then I masked it off using Tamiya's 1/4" and 1" masking tape.  I shot 2 coats of the Testor's Emerald Green One Coat Lacquer, taking the tape off immediately after the second coat.  Then it went into my dehydrator for a couple of hours.  I lightly sanded a couple of flaws with 3600, then 4,000 and 6,000 grit, cleaned the body, then shot 3 coats of Testor's  Candy Green Enamel.  That too, went into the dehydrator and the next day I had a nice two-tone, green C6 convertible.  (When you paint yours, don't forget the mirrors—they need to be painted the same color as the body).

I fogged the light-to-medium green onto the sides, front and rear of the chassis and hand painted the suspension and exhaust components.  The chassis is not as nice as the full-detail Revell C6's, but does look fairly convincing.

You have to be observant with the wheels and tires—this kit has big and little wheels/tires, though they are the same style.  The wider tires and wheels are for the back, but you can easily put a front tire on one of the rear wheels, and vice versa.  You might not notice if you put a front tire on a rear wheel, but you should notice if you put one of the rear tires on a front wheel, as it will be slightly loose. 

CorvetteCorvette

I had some difficulty getting the wire axles to fit into the wheels.  I don't know if the plating process used on the wheels made the holes too small for the axles, or what.  I was able to get the axles to go into the wheels by chucking them in my drill and "drilling" the axle into the wheel.

The interior of the kit features molded vinyl seats.  This is OK, but using regular brush paint won't work, as the seats are flexible.  Some people have had success using acrylic paints on the vinyl seats.  I decided to go a different route.  I used Dupli-Color Fabric and Vinyl Dye, the same stuff you can use to dye the interior on your full scale car.  I really like this product and think the C6's interior came out nice.  I modeled my interior after a real C6's in champagne and black.

As I noted in my "In the Box" review, some of the decals are a little flimsy and AMT/Round 2 includes two of each, "just in case".  I am glad they did, because there are many details you just can't add to one of these kits, without them.  (I had some difficulty with the side marker lights and one of the seat decals as you can see in the interior pic).  One set of decals I really appreciate, are those for the dashboard.  I can't imagine trying to detail paint molded in gauges/images on this model.  It's much easier (and more realistic) to use decals.  Two other minor issues I have about the decals is the Corvette flags don't show up very well on the dark green body and where to put the flag on the rear body panel is a little vague.

Corvette

The only other slightly negative thing about the kit is the tailights are molded in clear.  I understand this, as it saves money.  It was easy to rectify with some Testor's Stop Light Red, which I also used to paint the center mounted stop light.

I'm quite pleased with the final result and I want to thank AMT/Round 2 for the kit to review.  I do have a follow up Q, though—when will we see a C7?

My sincere thanks to Round2 Models for this review sample

the first symptom of a cold is usually a sore throat. this is generally followed by sneezing or a blocked, sore or runny nose. usually, 1 in 3 people with a cold will get a cough and feel unwell.

colds are caused by viruses. antibiotics cannot treat viruses. instead, drink plenty of liquids to replace those lost from sweating and runny noses. get lots of rest and eat healthily. do not ask your gp for antibiotics for a cold.

you will usually feel worse during the first 2 to 3 days before gradually starting to improve. your symptoms will usually last about a week.

cold and flu symptoms are similar but flu tends to be more severe.

cold

  • appears gradually
  • affects mainly your nose and throat
  • makes you feel unwell but you're ok to carry on as normal - for example, go to work

flu

  • appears quickly within a few hours
  • affects more than just your nose and throat
  • makes you feel exhausted and too unwell to carry on as normal

cold symptoms can include:

  • blocked or runny nose
  • sore throat
  • headaches
  • muscle aches
  • coughs
  • sneezing
  • a raised temperature
  • pressure in your ears and face
  • loss of taste and smell

the symptoms are the same in adults and children. sometimes, symptoms last longer in children.

causes of colds

colds are caused by viruses. they can easily spread to other people. you're infectious until all your symptoms have gone. this usually takes about a week.

colds are spread by germs from coughs and sneezes which can live on hands and surfaces for 24 hours.

to reduce the risk of spreading a cold you should:

  • wash your hands often with warm water and soap
  • cough into your elbow to stop germs getting on to your hands and spreading to other people
  • use tissues to trap germs when you cough or sneeze
  • bin used tissues as quickly as possible

how to prevent catching a cold

the best ways to avoid catching a cold are:

  • washing your hands with warm water and soap, especially before eating
  • not sharing towels or household items, like cups, with someone who has a cold
  • not touching your eyes or nose. you can infect your body if you've come into contact with the virus.
  • staying fit and healthy

AMT Corvette C5-C8 Ultra-Low Seat Mount

AMT Corvette C5-C8 Ultra-Low Seat Mount

The Corvette was equipped from the factory with many great things - seats are not one of those things. Those who have added a proper racing seat to their Corvette often say it's the most important mod they've done to increase their track-day enjoyment. However, a proper racing seat shouldn't be installed with the factory hardware. A real racing seat should be mounted from the side on fixed mounts. Headroom is generally a concern with any racing seat in a Corvette, but AMT has effectively eliminated that concern with our Ultralow Seat Mount.

Many hours of development were spent making our Ultralow mount the best available for the Corvette. The only way to get your seat lower in the car would be to cut a hole in it. The bottom of the seat can literally touch the floor in your Corvette. We've achieved this by machining a perfect hex in the mounts to accept the mounting bolts for the side brackets. A flat head screw would allow the same clearance, but by machining the hex into the aluminum we also remove an extra wrench (and a whole lot of headache) from the install process.

The mounts are fully machined from 6061-T6 extruded aluminum angle and flat plate for the brackets. Rather than allowing the side brackets to only sit on bolts, we machine the brackets so there is a perfect mechanical interface with the bottom and side of the floor mounts. This increases stiffness and strength - two things of great importance in a seat mount. Included with every mount are studs and hardware to allow the mount to be bolted using the factory Corvette seat studs.

Finally we offer an optional, integral, movable cross bar to accept 5 and 6 point sub-belts. Two eye-bolts are included with the sub bar. The sub bar is bolted to the floor mounts with flat head screws, and there are 2 more holes in the cross bar to allow you to bolt the bar right thru the floor, should your sanctioning body require it. We do not recommend using a different sub-belt bar with our mount since you'll need to modify either the mount or the sub-belt bar to get it to fit. If you're ordering this mount without a sub-belt bar, then you should just be mounting your eyebolts right through the floor.

As with everything we make, these mounts are proudly 100% Made in the USA.

Lifetime Guarantee - If any part of this mount fails for any reason, AMT Motorsport will replace the offending part free of charge.
