Luke Bogacki Motorsports CSRC Corvette Buildup (Part 1)
Carterville, IL: The latest addition to the Luke Bogacki Motorsports team is a ‘63 Corvette bodied roadster from Charlie Stewart Race Cars in Azle, TX. The car, with which Bogacki will compete in Super Gas this season, is nearing completion. Here on ThisIsBracketRacing.com, we’ll feature its buildup in two features. Below in the first segment, we’ll detail the chassis, suspension, and electrical components. In next week’s second portion, the drive train, paint, and engine components will be featured.
After taking deliver of the chassis in mid-February, Bogacki has been hard at work assembling, wiring, and plumbing the Corvette. He plans to test in the coming weeks in preparation for the NHRA Division 4 LODRS event at the Texas Motorplex April 20-22.
Obviously, the chassis and gorgeous ‘63 Corvette body come from Charlie Stewart Race Cars. The Texas-based chassis professionals use a conventional 4-link design with an anti-roll system and mounted a pair of Ohlins LMP Series rear shocks. Bogacki finished out the rear suspension with a complete Moser Engineering aluminum Ford 9" rear end, 40 spline gun-drilled axles, and Moser’s new Pro Drag disc brake kit. Mickey Thompson tires and wheels will put the power from Bogacki’s 582 cubic inch Huntsville Engine power plant to the ground.
The driver’s compartment features some slick additions from CSRC, including a retractable step for the driver, a custom tool box, and several LED lights throughout the cockpit and engine compartment. The CSRC custom carbon dash houses an Auto Meter Stack multi-function data logger, along with a K&R Pro-Cube II Delay Box with Z-force, and the K&R Severe Duty Switch Panel.
A B&M Stealth Pro Bandit Shifter and Dixie electric shift solenoid round out the interior electronics package at Bogacki’s disposal.
