Driver Battles Season 2 Episode 2: FD RX-7 vs. C6 Corvette [Video]

It’s the battle of the motors on this episode of Driver Battles, with the rotary power of an FD RX-7 against the LS3 in the C6 Corvette Grand Sport. They may come from different worlds, but they’re both from famous engine families that are known for producing big power. Which will reign supreme around Willow Springs?

On paper, it looks like the RX-7 may have the advantage. It certainly has more mods than the Corvette, including a turbo and wing, and it’s also lighter. That said, you should never count out an LS, which is known as one of the least expensive and best engines out there. Both cars are on Nitto NT01s, so the drivers will be able to drive aggressively and lay down consistent lap times.
