Since Corvettes have unequal length control arms, not MacPherson type struts, you cannot use camber plates. The upper control arms come with extra washers...

It's been a while, and I thought I should update you guys.

I've traded-in the Camaro, and wanted to try something new, and C7 Z51 looked like a great option with the discounts I could get. The...

I think I was able to get more out of it without the camber plates. They should have been able to get close to -2 (-1.8 or so) without the plates. Perhaps aftermarket bolts could give you more range?...

I use this one. I know it's a bit expensive, but it has a whopping 4.5" dial, and shows 0.5 PSI steps, making it excellent for fine-tuning at the track. It's a big investment, but hopefully you only...

+1.

In my experience, high toe kills tires more than anything, not camber. Moreover, even if your high negative camber eventually causes excessive wear at the inside, it would still be less than...

I've had very similar results (though I think it took a bit more) with the camber a bit more aggressive than the GM track prep settings. The settings I found worked best is -2.8 camber up front with...

Thanks for the info!

Regarding rings, we put new rings on aftermarket hats (like installing new rings on StopTech hats if you have a BBK) all the time. Does this create imbalance issues in that...

That's crazy! Do you think we're missing something here? I'm wondering if it's somehow not a coincidence. How will you trust the engine for track duty, if it keeps losing pressure?

Very sorry to...

I got them for $256/rotor, but then Amazon decided it should rather charge $310 (which is still lowest price).

Long story short, I won't install the brakes for about 3 weeks, so there is a window...

That sounds about right. I think C7 Z06 spec rotors sound about right for a 2-piece rotor of its size; it's the ZL1-spec rotor that is too heavy for its size. Is the hat not aluminum? Both rotors are...
