It was detail time last week by my boys Jeff & Chris of J & C Detailing. Jeff's dad has a sweet azz 1969 with less than 5000 miles on it( You hear that Kurt? ), it was sick! He actually reminds me of Kurt since he went out and got a yellow 2010 SS, so sounds familiar to our friend Kurt! His dad couldn't get over what 700+ HP felt like, I'm still peeling pieces of his pants from my seat!!

Got my new NJ plates today too, I got lucky and got the same ones that I had in Cali, SSYNSTR, so they'll go on tomorrow along with the Cipher Auto Harness Bar & some other goodies, a few for each, the Hoe gets something special from EmblemPros & the ZLX, well....I'll leave ya guessing...Tomorrow's going to be install day in the garage!



Looks like I had the right idea when I installed the Eaton TrueTrac
TrueTrac Write Up

Thanks brotha, the guys did a hell of a job. I usually do my cars myself, but with the move, and then another move coming in the next few months , I wanted to have it done professionally so now I can just upkeep it with all my Adam's products The new crib coming has a 2 car garage and a whole separate garage/shop on the grounds that I'm going to install a 2 post lift in, so I can do a lot of playing

Is that going to be some of your winter projects Tim? Since the ZL1 has been out I've seen so many front ends on Ebay at almost half the price I paid for mine, so it wouldn't be a bad idea if you want to do the conversion. It makes all the sense in the world, your supercharged engine & brakes will love you for the MPD1 ram air hood, pop out the plexiglass on your CAI box, and for the front end just take a heat gun to your windshield wiper bottle so the ZL1 brake ducts are functional You'll really unleash the beast!

Super cool pictures. When I see the ZLX between those two cars I imagine it growling at them like a rabid dog.

Thanks bro, that Mcloed RXT clutch it really makes it feel perfect. I picked up a set C6 rims to run with MTs, worked perfect with the Brembos.

Yeah I bet! I'm still on the stock clutch somehow, too many things to build so little money haha. My clutch is really dead I think the shifts are not smooth and I don't think its disengaging properly anymore. Where did you pickup the rims?

Btw I think they are doing the Dig or Roll event again, would love to see the ZLX come through! I was the only 5th gen last time lol.

Damn bro, you're still on your stock clutch with all that HP you're pushing, you got some good use out of it. To think, I swapped mine out with 3000 miles on it, but you know the deal, I didn't want any breakage and wanted to do it all at once. I guess you're still running the stock axles then too?

I got the rims from my buddy that owns a Chevy dealership here in NJ, he hooked me up since I've been buying cars from him & his family for 15 years now. They actually came off his dad's ZR1.

If I still have the ZLX by the next Dig & Roll, I'll join you so you don't feel left out , I've got a few people working on financing so I can't make any promises it'll still be around, but you never know. By then I could be seeing 9 second runs Somebody better have some deep pockets if they want to play.

My boy Roger at EmblemPros hooked up my Zombie Hoe with some cool lettering. The guy does awesome work & a forum sponsor!

Yeah stock clutch lol I beat it to hell and I think its about had it. Oh well like you said it put up with a lot and kept on ticking so I can't complain. At this rate the I'm just about done driving it for the year most likely so I'll see how much longer it'll go lol. I'm gonna run it till it starts slipping haha. Moving onto other projects got my eye on something as well.

Nah I have a gforce 9" with all the upgrades. 35 Spline, Moser Wavetrac, 1400+, etc. with a one off DSS 1 piece driveshaft made by frank for the kit. That stock driveline WOULD have broke under the power as soon as I put a tire on it. Next DOR event looks like its at MIR in Maryland probably a bit too far for me.

Sounds good on the rims lucky, I've ordered some welds for the car so we'll get that going once they come in. Selling it? GLWS man will be hard to let it go but I know that C7 will fill the void for sure. I had a few people try and buy mine but they couldn't even come up with a few thousand out of pocket ontop of their financing. If you can't afford that IMO you can't maintain the car and I wasnt gonna sell it to them. Truck looks good man, love the emblems.

It's a shame my move back from Cali was so rushed, I didn't even get a chance to get my stock clutch & axles from CMS, I could've given you the clutch, had less than 3K on it. Oh yea, the stock driveline would've been mush with that HP. We have a lot of similar stuff I see, you went with the Moser Wavetrac, while I went with the Eaton TrueTrac 35 spline & the GForce axles, love those babies especially with their lifetime warranty! I hear you about people having no clue what it cost to build & maintain a high HP build, and agree 100%. There's a right way and the cheap way, and the cheap way turns into a more expensive proposition when stuff starts breaking. Do it right the first time or don't bother!

If the Dig or Roll is in Maryland, I'll be passing as well, plenty of events at Atco Raceway to keep me satisfied. As will the C7, you know I'll be one of the first to be building them up once parts are made available. The good thing with the Stingray is the suspension is world class, so no need for upgrades there. Who knows maybe I'll just throw a bottle on it with a 150 or 200 shot I know Maggie working on a supercharger for it. I'll see what the boys at ECS will want to do, I don't mind being a Guinea Pig for speed! But I do know this, I'm definitely waiting a little bit once I get it to see what becomes available in the aftermarket world.

Roger @ EmblemPros does an awesome job with emblems & hydrocoating, I'm real happy with the way the Tahoe has turned out, going to need that beast now that I'm back on the Northeast! You'll really be happy with the Welds for the drags, did you go 18"? That was my next option if I couldn't get those Vette rims...Good choice with them!
