We looks at cars everyday. Wait, scratch that, we look at A LOT of cars on a daily basis and rarely do we ever think of the people behind the car. Yes, we talk about different automakers and the cars they will be debuting, but we hardly ever talk about the people whose jobs are to evolve and progress the vehicles they are working on. Well, Chevrolet has changed that.

This is Episode 8 of the Track to Street Corvette Racing Series. This episode takes the viewers on a trip into the world of progressive car making. Through an ongoing development process called cascade engineering, Corvette Racing’s engineering staff is continually refining the Corvette so it can achieve optimal performance.

It’s actually a pretty interesting video. Don’t expect fireworks and loud, revving engines, but take a look at it to see all of the work that gets the Corvette from the track to the street.

Good thing that Corvette had changed some of its style and details. I would like to try its new powerful engine. Perhaps, we can clearly sees how much effort they’ve made to put this one into test.

Well, its a good thing that Track to Street gives attention to the people behind this production and doesn’t focus in the car itself. And I have to agree that this is definitely the great reason why this show is different from other car show.

Definitely its so true.. The success of the car was rely on the team behind every production! Their job is not that easy as we think and I feel honored to see this video and watched them as they built the most respected car in the industry, the Corvette.

Yeah, maybe that’s the reason why Track to Street is quite different from the car show because they included in the package the person behind the production of the car.

I’m so proud for the team creative behind the production of every car. Its not really an easy task after all they need a lot of patience, hard work and dedication.

Well, that one of the great thing about the Track to Street, they doesn’t focus only on the car itself but they also feature the man behind the meticulous production of the car!

Yes, I agree with you guys. Making powerful racing cars is not a big joke at all. And for sure the engineering behind this sports car really needs focused to clear things out!

Now I know the reason behind the powerful engine of the Corvette. I can see how their engineer study meticulously the detailing and styling of this car! Nice job!

yes, i agree the the video is quite interesting. I can see the hard work and dedication of the team for the good output. This is definitely a waste of time effort.

The car looks great running at Sebring. Even with how bumpy the track is through the turns..

one good thing about the Corvette Racing is that they don’t focus in the car and the pilot but also in the person behind the scene,,
just like the designer, engineer and the audiences..

Pretty sure this is incorrect. When they moved down to GT2 last year, they were using a de stroked version of the LS7. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but my understanding is that the current "GM 5.5L V8" (as listed on the CR site) is an entirely new and different block, and likely the one that will end up in the next road going Corvette.

Uh, not all cars that go into production do this, and most to not have the success the Corvette team has had on the track.

Yeah, I was unaware of the extensive Camry racing program that helps develop road-going Camry’s.

Great show from the first episode from the present now wonder, why everyone loves Le Mans.

Great inspiration really contributes to a great performance. And I guess its the great time for “ behind the scene” to be mention.

Very nice, all the GT cars have similar R&D but Corvette Racing share some of these information and data with their fans... and i like this thing smiley

This one is really an interesting set. Lets you see how the Corvette is slowly developed into a cool car.

Yeah!, Corvette collection would not be these good ever.

nice 3d, but did they used a flex frame here? because based on the 3d movie the frame moved +1 and -1 when turning.
