100% agree. This exactly what I want to see. Especially the weight reduction. Preferably no more than 3,500 lbs.

You must. I've been going there since 1997 and that's one of the faster times I've seen on street tires.

Hawk race pads bed VERY quickly. No sanding required. A medium speed warmup lap is usually all it takes.

You are 100% correct. DTC-60 and DTC-70 pads suck on the street. They are a no compromise track pad. My view is if you're spending the time and money to track your car, why compromise on something as...

Trust me. If you pursue this hobby long enough sooner or later you'll need to be towed in. The tow guys will likely have something snip your zip ties off, so I wouldn't worry about it.

I've always understood it to mean shifting well below red-line which is slow like your granny. Not what you want in a race.

Why did you choose a circle track pad for a road course application? DTC-60 or DTC-70 is what you want for a road course.

I would not consider a Z/28 for daily driver duty. It’s designed as a street legal track car that you can drive to the track and back. It will not be comfortable or practical as a daily driver.

Very true, but its simply not possible to recreate exact track conditions. However, it is possible to use the calendar, weather forecast and weather radar to maximize your chances at a dry lap.

Agreed, but as we know time=$$$. GM should have spent the $$$ to keep them there until a clear, dry track was available. That's what Porsche, and most other competitors would have done.
