Hopefully they fixed the issue with the oranges spring perch being too close to the tire. 275/40R20s up front on 20x9s don't work with Koni Oranges.

They didn't give a damn when I told them about...

I'm with these guys, There is a guy who comes to our track days at VIR with a 2011 SS and he's on 18's with 25" or so slicks and he's never complained about issues. I'm pretty sure the 18s and slicks...

Thanks, kinda what I figured, the strut actually moves inward some with more camber, so maybe with the 5mm spacers I already have a 20x10 +35 would fit. Or I guess I could try and find a 7mm spacer...

I've had more than one car that went over 100k before ever touching the brakes. Usually it was because of a lot of highway driving.

I wouldn't think it's needed, you don't need quick throttle response on a track, you need all your inputs to be nice and smooth. Better to have the throttle open a bit slower than you expect than...

You'll be fine, I run 5mm spacers (with longer studs) up front on mine to get some extra clearance.

I track and autocross my car and i've had no issues at all in 4 months.

You won't need longer...

The PSS isn't available in stock sizes, and it's also not what I would call "affordable", it is supposed to be an awesome tire though.

I certainly feel like the stabilitrak is not calibrated properly anymore. It did some stuff I didn't expect in comp mode at VIR in April. Such as interfering when the car felt perfectly in shape.

If you change the camber it will throw off your toe also, so you will probably be better off having a shop adjust it.

That was BS, I run -2 camber in the front with stock suspensions other than lowering springs.

I could easily get to those numbers if I wanted to also.

You don't need camber plates, I put -2 camber in the front without using camber plates at all. The stock suspension is fairly adjustable.

Ehh, I wouldn't bank on it, the 6th gen is likely to be more expensive than the 5th gen new, so I doubt 5th gen used values will drop a huge amount.

Interesting, they listed them as 70.7mm but the Camaro has a 66.9mm hub bore. Guessing they aren't really centering on the hub anymore but maybe that's not a huge issue.
