Run It on Red
Red Line's 75W-90 Gear Oil promises to keep your C5 or C6 Corvette's differential operating at its best. It's formulated from a proprietary high-viscosity-index (VI) blend of ester base stocks and friction modifiers, which improve differential efficiency for better mileage, longer drain intervals, and less wear. Red Line 75W-90 also features superior shear stability and reduced oxidation compared with other synthetics and conventional gear oils. It exceeds the industry's API GL-5 specifications.

MTI Racing's six-speed sequential transmission for T56- and TR6060-equipped Corvettes can bring shift times down to an astonishing 1⁄200-second. Using the original Tremec gear case, MTI converts the stock internals and H-pattern shift mechanism to full sequential operation, maintaining the original mating surfaces, mountings, clutch, slave cylinder, and driveshafts. This system offers lightning-fast, no-lift upshifting ability and Sixth-through-Second downshifts, which are completed in less time than it takes to brake.

That's My Stop
Wilwood's D8-6 calipers promise modern braking reliability for '65-'82 Corvettes. They feature billet- aluminum bodies, six stainless-steel pistons, and high-temperature seals, all of which promise to put an end to the rust, bore pitting, and seal failures that plague the OE units. The calipers mount over the stock rotors, use the original-style D8 brake pads, and fit snugly inside most '67-or-newer production wheels. Every kit comes with DOT-compliant stainless braided lines and BP-10 compound Smart Pads.
