Agreed Tom, I lucked out. I was a little nervous leaving the Camaro with them as I knew nothing about their rep, but Sevens Only Racing turned out to be a top notch shop.

New clutch is fantastic. I just ran a 1:54.9 at Buttonwillow.

Oil temps are high though, 285 F with only a 65 F ambient. My new oil cooler set up isn't in yet.

Unfortunately the new flywheel...

This thread is dangerous to my kids' college fund, LOL.

Low $60k's for a beast like this is exceptional.

You know, I probably shouldn't have mentioned that wear rate because the other track, Buttonwillow, was also hell on tire wear. They've just repaved it so it's much better now.

Oh, and I run 315s...

Is this for a spare set of dedicated track wheels? If so, I think the NT01s are an excellent choice. I swapped my track wheels on at home, then I drove 3-1/2 hours to the track, tracked all weekend,...

My guess is that the Trofeo R has less grip than the Nitto NT-01, but will last longer and can be driven safely in the rain. The NT-01 is less expensive. Both good choices, depends on your goals.

You can also get thinner ones than those. Mine are 5mm, bought them on eBay. I also have a 1/8" thick set that CCW made for me.

I'm running 12" wide rear wheels with Hoosiers and a big wing, so I'd say the approach has been stress tested :biggrin:

Score brotha Brian! Either that or the 295/30-20. Lowering the car a bit and improving gearing wouldn't hurt. Just check pricing and availability. I bet Tire Rack can get them. Keep us posted.

I totally agree with this. NT01s, even though narrower, for the win! I hadn't realized we had crossed between street tires and R compounds.

I love the LS7. I tracked a C6 Z06 at Spring Mountain and it felt as quick on the track as the ZR1, yet is not affected as much by heat soak.

Agreed, plus they got it mostly right with ZR1. Challenger Hellcat can also track in the heat for sustained periods, not that it's in the same league due to its portly weight.

This is a common theme that resonates with me. If I had a Z06 on order sadly I'd cancel it and wait for the dust to settle too.

I agree that the Z/28 scores a bulls eye for track day fun.

Man it's like looking in a mirror, lol. I'd be curious if a stock Z would be faster than mine as well. I have my doubts especially due to my big wing, at least at aero tracks.

How's reliability...
