Yep, just picked the car up a couple of days ago. It's looking good, 514 RWHP and 497 RW Ft-Lb. Torque comes on really early, just what I was looking for. Bull's eye, 514 RWHP was the exact ideal...

My Camaro's in the shop so I am tracking my other car this weekend, they don't make A7s and R7s in the sizes I need yet. I'm gonna run A6s instead. They don't last...

I aim for 36 to 38 psi hot. Cold, if memory serves, is around 27 to 28 psi.

I bet those would be awesome. Absolutely love the R6s. If R7s are grippier and last longer, that would be the tire I would run. I'm waiting for R7s in the 315/30-18 size for my machine.

It's an APR GT-250, they now make brackets specifically for the Camaro. However, mounting is flimsy and I had to reinforce under the decklid to prevent excessive deflection. But it works very well...

Yes that rings a bell. I just know that it works well, and if it works don't fix it, LOL.
