Looks good! I'm done doing any mods on mine, it'll be gone in six months anyway! LOL

We are staying at home this weekend before the summer race schedule kicks in. You?
We would've called you on Sunday, but I was told that you had gone home early! Thanks again for the hospitality this weekend…that Optima trailer was freaking sweet! Always great to see y'all!

It's gonna be another boring ZL1, but you're more than welcome to take it for a test drive...

...right after Corey does headers, pulley, injectors, tune, etc....


...and it gets Supercars and all the bushings Pedders makes for it...

No...I did it....

and that is EXACTLY how I cracked the splitter at TCR. I pulled in at an angle and hit the high curb (not the parking curb).

Yeah....my judging of distance is sucking lately...

No rubbing yet. I just raised the rear 1/4" to give it an even look front to rear and to make sure we don't get any crazy rubbing. Rear coilovers were set on 16 and even with a few bouncy roads, no rubbing. I'm going to drop them to 10 now and see what happens. Drop to 5 if nothing and so on.

I agree the look is great. I was so worried about all black rims not going with my "theme." But, knowing it might have been a possibility a while back, I decided to get the ZL1 rockers and left the bottoms black. Then I got the T4 splitter on front introducing a bit more black. I hoped since this was more how the 1LE's and ZL1's looked on the bottom, it would mesh well like they did. And sure nuff! It works! I think it also tones down the silver just a teeny tiny bit.....just enough to give it that perfect combo. Seriously, I've never been happier about the overall look of the car until yesterday. I can't believe it worked out this well.

But now it looks meaner....lol. I think I'm going to have to change it's name.

BANE.


And Pete? I think he's gonna say "needs lowering."

That, or, "so when are we going to do some autocross???"

The rotors look a million times better with the hats painted. What brand/kind of paint did you use?
