You did track day on stock brake fluid?! Also manual suggest changing the diff fluid after track event.

Most track events suggest switching to Dot 4, your Motul 600 that you got, and it not be older than 90 days. SS lines are a great upgrade as they will prevent flexing and cracking, usually only a problem in older cars, of the lines.

Stock pads are good but if you are going to do this more often I HIGHLY suggest switching your pads prior to the event to Carbotech XP-12 front and XP-8 rear and then switch back to your street pads for the street. It will take maybe an hour to do all 4 corners. You will have much better, deeper, stronger braking with these. You already mention you are a late/deep braker (sp?) and these will surely impress you. It is what I use on the track and they rock. Slotted rotors are another good investment. I use the DBA 4000's.

If you have not changed your Diff fluid at 1500 miles you should do it now. Redline makes a great synthetic for the diff.

Watching your video is pushing me closer to getting the harness bar, tank plates, harness' because you did not move in those turns. You looked very snug.

Just some tips from someone who has been there already and will be again.:biggrin1:

Thanks for posting all the vids man. They were pretty exciting to watch, and kinda had the feeling I was in the drivers seat. Hopefully I will get the same opportunity at VIR or Summit point one day. Carry on!

Just catching up here and realized you may have damaged your car a bit. Is it just the scratches on the splitter/bumper section? If so, that doesn't look too bad. It could have been worse huh?

I received this email from hookedondriving so needed to share.They have track days all over the country so lets get out and support our brand.

Hi Mark…it was very nice to meet you at Laguna on Friday. You looked to be handling the track very well in your Camaro. I did not get a chance to talk to you at the end of the day but did want to follow up with the brief conversation we had about what HOD can do to get the Camaro groups on track more often.

As I mentioned we see a lot of Mustangs (Boss, GT, Roush, Shelby, etc) but rarely a Camaro. I would love to contact anyone or group that might have some interest in putting together a Camaro day at Laguna…."Camaro's at the Corkscrew". Any suggestions or guidance would be appreciated.

Hope you enjoyed your day with HOD and we are looking forward to seeing you again.
