Car worked awesome at the autocross test & tune yesterday!

I averaged 54.XXX runs in the AM, 57.XXX in the afternoon.

most people were running 50 to 52 seconds in the am.. 52-55 in the afternoon.

Tire pressure settings I tried didn't have any impact. Will still need to fine tune the setup, but it is within striking distance of every other car (except for some of the pro's and modified's) in the club now.

Running the test scenarios (slalom, increasing or decreasing slalom setups) - the Camaro behaved very well. Under-steer was non existant like in the past. Car tracks very well and is behaved. I could use a lot of throttle and you could rotate the vehicle with throttle steer.

All in all I love the handling changes! This is how the car should feel!

The ZL-1 rear bar is a MUST for anyone that wants a 5th gen Camaro to handle properly!
