SEMA 2014: Spectre Performance Equipped Chevy C10 Hits The Autocross

SPC10SEMA01Throughout the year, competitors from across the country compete in automotive events for points, all in the hopes of getting the invitation to the OUSCI – OPTIMA Ultimate Street Car Invitational. It’s said to be the Super Bowl of autocross, and one such vehicle that made the list of about 100 vehicles was this 1972 Chevrolet C10, driven by Brandy Phillips, and parked in the Spectre Performance booth during the week of SEMA.

The truck is a husband and wife build that gives Brandy something to race in the OPTIMA series, and highlights a few Spectre components among the many custom parts used in this build. A 102mm throttle body and aluminum cold air intake from Spectre was used on this 585 horsepower LS build. The potent LS is set back about 10 inches, and is backed by a Viper T56 6-speed transmission, utilizing a Centerforce DYAD clutch system.

Sending that power to the Currie rearend and transmitting it to the wheels is done with a Baer Brake full floater conversion. A set of Boze Alloys forged 18×12-inch wheels wrapped in BF Goodrich KDW tires measuring 335/30R18 put the power to the pavement. Keeping the race truck from overshooting the course is a set of Baer Brakes with 6-piston calipers and 14-inch rotors.

SPC10SEMA31Under the hood, a list of performance components include Trick Flow heads, Holley EFI and modular LS intake, Hooker headers and a Magnaflow exhaust. Under the truck, a DSE front suspension and PCHRODS rear suspension are controlled by a set of AFCO double adjustable shocks with remote reservoirs, and Hotchkis sway bars.

The truck is not Brandy’s first foray into racing for Spectre, one of her prior rides was the 1970 Camaro that we have seen in recent years. Her husband, Rob Phillips, is co-owner of PCHRODS and built this truck for Spectre and Brandy to race in the OPTIMA series.
