I felt the same way. Other videos show him more or less care free, where this one he's struggling.

Cornerspeed, great driving man.
He did....google head 2 head, and he gave the 1le positive comments. Gonna see if I can find the link

I'm glad I did it, just wish I could tell something to be sure it "worked".
I never got the feeling of the pedal traveling more while doing it,but after words i did notice the brakes are a little more sensitive,and grab better.

It was nice meeting you at laguna seca. I'm sorry I did not get a chance to go for a ride. But you were ripping out there.

I had some communication with "DOC" and were trying to put some C5'rs together for a track day at Fontana in August with speedventures,so it would be super cool to get a bunch of us there.

Love COTA! I'll be there first weekend in June running my 1LE. Can't wait! Compared to these guys, it will seem like I'm driving in a golf cart

Tonight I'm at Texas World Speedway prepping my 1LE for its first track weekend (HPDE).

I've generally been a mustang guy since the Camaros have had such poor track manners until the 1LE and ZL1. I am absolutely SURROUNDED by mustangs at this event. At tech inspection tonight I've seen 20+ BOSS 302s and 5-7 BOSS Laguna Secas, 6 2013 GT 500s, 5-10 earlier GT500s, and a host of older track mustangs. There are the occasional Vettes, Porsches, and Mitatas......I'm the only Camaro registered I feel like I might as well paint a bullseye on the back of the car! I wish this was not my first event in the car, and the first in the last seven months. I'll try to get dialed in in the morning sessions and see if I can't surprise a few mustangs in the afternoon!

Well, two sessions in and the mustangs are scratching their heads wondering why that Camaro (that just passed them) is not under steering like crazy and holding them up in the turns. So far, I've only had to point by one car and that was an instructor in his BOSS 302 (I run in the solo group just below the instructors today) Otherwise, it has been all Fords giving the reluctant point by to the 1LE I've had a couple guys think it must be supercharged....but in the paddock with the hood up after sessions they have to admit it is just a stock LS3 that went by.

Love the car and could not be more pleased with how it has run and handled. Six more sessions this weekend to enjoy it!
