Great track, you're gonna love it! Take your time to learn it and work up to speed slowly, as with any track.

I'm going with the NorCal Shelby Club to an unlimited-dB day at Laguna Seca on 9/21....

Yes, it's custom. I didn't think I'd do this to my street machine, but here I am, LOL. Good to feel safe when pushing, worth the investment. I looked at it this way- I could skip a few track...

No I don't have the belly pan, thanks for the tip I'll look into it. Matt (Dropspeed) said that my hood vents may not be in the optimum spot to create downforce / relieve lift and suggested the...

Looking good! My wing is an APR GT-250. APR has recently released it with brackets for our Camaros. Flimsy mounting though, I had to reinforce under the trunk lid. The wing really helps on the...

One thing that should be mentioned here is the selection of the track based on your level of safety gear. Some tracks are much safer than others. For example, I wouldn't want to track the Nurburgring...

Ouch, that sucks man. I just popped some Advil this morning to calm down a herniated disk from a rollover accident that happened in my twenties. Necks and heads are fragile. Since Earnhardt passed...

Great thread. Wow, a lot of points you'd like to discuss, you don't mess around LOL. I might have to bite on just a few key points.

Todd,

I strongly recommend Ron Fellows School. I've completed Level Is and II in their Corvettes, and a two-day private lesson in my own car. There is no question that this has improved my lap...

That's too hot, my friend. Doubt if you did any damage, but it would be wise to keep coolant below 250 degrees.

I would change that oil, heat is hell on oil.

That was pretty close to the wording that my friend used at the track- I was doing "wheelies," LOL. Clearly Al is right on, because my APR splitter and Hex Vents aren't enough to balance the wing.

Looks pretty gnarly, maybe I'll wait for a good aftermarket solution. That does look solid the way it's tied in to the car on the Z/28.

I think about 140 MPH is what I'll hit on the faster...

Synner,

How do you like -3.5 degrees camber in the front? How's tire wear on the track? I'm at -2.9 now and since I'm running Hoosiers on the track I'm thinking of going to -3.5 or maybe -4...

No, not required but I wanted to have my speedo correct at the track. But that means my speedo is incorrect on the street when I have my stock 20" wheels on. That was a good trade-off for me. I would...

Guys,

I like the way you think!

For alignment, my front mounting points were slotted out by my alignment shop to acheive more negative camber than stock would allow. Before I put my wing on, I was...
