Great Mark. I like Speed Ventures. Every car has a transponder, and the cars are lined up in order of lap times. This way, fast guys are always in front and slow in the back. Less passing, less...

I agree. My personal opinion is that using the factory seat belt is best unless you have a real roll bar(not just a harness bar which lacks rollover protection), but I know not all feel that way. I...

I think that oil temp is a weak link in the Camaros, including the 1LE. 290 is too high, 300 is dangerous. I was running 290 after only 3 laps on a cool day with my modded engine. I replaced the...

I use a Necksgen, because it restricts both front-back and side-side motion. A HANS only restricts front-back motion. Because factory seats have no wrap-around side helmet supports, I believe a...

Crappy heavy Jongbloeds, they were chosen as a spec wheel. They are inexpensive and durable. Not my first choice, I would go with CCWs again on a Camaro

Amen White,

Exactly true. By the way, I tried a bunch of pads and ended up liking Hawk DTC-60s. I ran DTC-30s and hated them. Grindy, uneven pad buildup, didn't seem to bite hard. But the 60s...

Haha, Mark those are the fun sessions where you get to mix it up and challenge someone. Camaros are quick around that track. Did you get any lap times off of the GoPro?
