Luke Hawkins made his first autocross experience count at this year’s LS Fest. His yellow ’02 Z06 was no chump either, making 27 runs on the course with a Second Place finish during the Speed Stop Challenge in the ABS street tire class. The Vette was outfitted with C6 Z06 front and rear caliper upgrades, including DBA 5000 two-piece rotors, Carbotech front pads, and factory ’07 Z06 pads in the rear. A set of long-tube headers, an X-pipe, and the titanium bypass modification generated 390 rwhp and got down the quarter-mile to the tune of 11.84. Wheels are factory Z06-issued 18x10.50 up front with BFGoodrich KDW P275/35R18s up front and P335/30R18s out back. To fit the big rubber out back, Hawkins mini-tubbed the Z and widened the rear wheels by 11/2 inches.
