The Arrow SAM Project

The Arrow SAM Project C7 Z06 Corvette

Arrow launched the Semi-Autonomous Motorcar (SAM) project in 2014. The current SAM car is a 2016 Corvette C7 Z06 modified so that a quadriplegic former IndyCar driver, Sam Schmidt, once again can drive using only his head to control the car.

Arrow and Schmidt have driven oval tracks, road courses and mountain summit runs at speeds up to 152 mph. The purpose of the SAM project is not only to push the boundaries of our transportation system, but also to rapidly innovate new technologies in ways never before thought possible.

In September 2016, Sam Schmidt became the first person with quadriplegia in the United States to receive an autonomous vehicle driver’s license. He has since driven the SAM car on the streets of Las Vegas, Nevada proving that the technology used in the SAM car is capable of much more than just turning laps.

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering is proud to have partnered with Arrow to further enhance the performance capability of the Arrow SAM car. Original plans were made to push the SAM car’s factory LT4 supercharger to its limits. Ideally this would enable the SAM car to achieve more power for high speed runs. With further review of the tasks at hand, Lingenfelter asked Magnuson Superchargers for their support to join this incredible build.

With both partners on board, the SAM car was upgraded to an aftermarket supercharger. The Arrow SAM car will be the first Corvette C7 Z06 in production with Magnuson’s NEW LT4 Heartbeat TVS2300 kit.

Together, Arrow, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and Magnuson are working in the world of Five Years Out to turn what is possible into what is practical and help the SAM car reach its highest performance capabilities. Be sure to follow and share our journey on this incredible build. Stayed tuned for additional photos and video.

Lingenfelter 2003 Z06 Vette Tuned for the Strip

Lingenfelter 2003 Z06 Vette Tuned for the Strip

One man’s meat is another’s poison. Especially when it comes to tuning the engine and chassis for the ’strip. What works on one type of track might not work well on another. And either configuration might not work very well at all on public roads. What follows is an experienced race car builder’s account of how he tweaked a Torch Red 2003 Z06 for better hookup on the ’strip, dramatically different from the car’s performance on the street.

First, a bit of background on his race car creds. M.J. Redden, aka Junior, worked for some performance legends over the years, namely Don Yenko and Zora Arkus-Duntov. Junior cut his competition teeth in Stock cars in the late ’50s, running a 1957 Chevy. He went on to win 11 straight feature events at the Clinton Speedway, and took home both the Championship and Rookie of the Year trophies.

2014 CHEVROLET SILVERADO REAPER: RAPTOR HARVESTER

2014 CHEVROLET SILVERADO REAPER: RAPTOR HARVESTER

When one thinks of the biggest rivalries, thoughts can go to Red Sox-Yankees or Packers-Vikings (or Patriots and everyone else), but they are small potato’s compared to the rift between Ford and Chevy owners. Each owner is fiercely loyal to their brand, and take great joy in talking trash about the other guys product.

Back in 2014, when this Chevy Reaper was built, the Ford Raptor was temporarily out of production, so Chevy had an opening to tweak Ford, and they took it. Enter the then all-new 2014 Chevrolet Silverado Reaper. Though in 2017 you can get one off the dealership floor, in 2014 the Reaper was a modified Silverado 1500 that was actually a joint venture between GM, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and custom builder Southern Comfort, or SCA Performance.
