My buddy daily drives a '14 Z51 Stingray, it's his only car besides his GF's Accord. It doesn't get garaged either.

Of course neither of us has kids and the back seat is almost useless for adults,...

Guessing you have a valve cover gasket leak, especially since you mentioned replacing the valve covers.

You can run a 275/35R20 on your stock rear wheels. There really isn't a perfect option for the front 20x8 wheels though unfortunately. If you picked up a second set of 20x9 rears you could run the...

I don't think it would make any difference which way the brace was put on, it should have the same clearance. The OE catback is also all one piece so I don't see anyway you can adjust that. The only...

No need to replace rotors, it won't gain you anything at all. Pads is probably a must on a 1LS since you don't have brembos and obviously fluid is a 100% must change for track. I personally use Motul...

Regrooving is usually reserved for agriculture and heavy equipment tires. You can't regroove a passenger car tire, there's no rubber left after the tread is gone.

Maybe you mean re-treading? That...

I used the sealant on mine with no gaskets, perfect seal and no leaks. I even autocross and track the car, so it gets plenty of abuse. If it does leak one day i'll probably pickup some gaskets though...

I run 93 Octane at the track, no point in running 100 or something crazy expensive. Especially when I burn through a 1/4 tank or so every 25 minutes.

Bad valve cover gasket, again though, that doesn't explain the amount of oil you seem to be losing, the side of the motor would be covered in oil if the valve cover is leaking that much.
