I have a Hill Assist tip. Don't gas while it's on. Rather, wait 1.5 seconds w/o gas and w/o brake and the car will release and drift backwards. I do this ALL the time around town and I've had super...

I like #2 best (stopped on a dime) but my rotors were glazed after 1 track day. #3 didn't...

You're right. Mother's 1987 Buick Regal Grand National was only an automatic and I would never want that car in a manual. Sadly it's 10 bolt 3.42 differential wasn't strong enough for 300+ lbs of...

I came to Camaro 1LE after an Audi S4. Would NEVER have bought an automatic Chevy. Sorry.

I test drove an SS and decided not to buy it. Felt to big, too heavy and too slow for me. Then I started to look at other rigs until I stumbled, Lord knows how, onto the 1LE on the web. As soon as I...

I'm honestly not trying to be a jerk but this ain't no automatic car. Full stop. Not with the gears in it. You'd end up going to 3.42s or 3.45s or whatever is there and then you lose the track...

A virgin 1LE! Booya!

Glad it worked out. Going to keep her original or have a build plan?

Roorback ... you get way more than 20 minutes. You get 5 sessions at 20-30 minutes each depending on the track. Very worth it sometime.

I think you're meant to leave the master cylinder lid open when you retract the pistons if for no other reason than to make sure you don't "overfill" the reservoir.

Has anyone that's installed the quantum brake kit shortened the flex tubes? I just got mine and packed them all in but it seems like too much hose. The inlets flank the bottom air tray:

The issue I had with the HP+s is that they made noise without braking.

Thanks. Yes. With the pistons retracted the pads moved around easily. I had to align the piston shields, pads and caliper pin because they moved so much.

Hi. What is bound up on the slider areas?
FWIW, I ensured the pad retaining pins are going through both the piston shield and the pads and seated inside the calipers.
