I really don't have very many, and only one of those really fits Jordan's request for Camaros tearing up the track.

The problem isn't that HSA exists.

Replace your car's yaw sensor with the yaw sensor part number for a 2014 SS with automatic transmission (AT cars do not have HSA). This work-around is detailed in at least one Camaro5.com thread.

I think it's a good call to get some autocross experience under your belt first, and the 1LE is as good a weapon as any in FS at least for now.

More that likely it has something to do with the "self-aligning torque" and steering feel for 305-wide R-compound tires on 11" wide rims being different enough from even the 1LE's 285's on 10's. Way...

Fortunately, the motion ratio consequence of changing the wheel offset is small. Hint: it involves the FVIC, not where the links making up the "LCA" physically attach to the chassis.
