Thanks man, agreed about family first. I was fortunate that everyone was tied up with plans, so I was free to go play. Hopefully next time we can meet up. I'll be doing Thunderhill 6/7 - 6/8, then Buttonwillow again 7/26 - 7/27, which is another Pony Car Challenge event.

Thanks for the reminder, I'll take a look hopefully tonight. Got the car back from the shop Thursday night, then headed to the track Friday. The center rods are tied to a custom bracket, the tow hook is also tied to it. Very beefy, I'll see if I can snap a pic or something.

Good thing they're beefy, I came around a big sweeper to find a plastic wheel housing liner right in the racing groove! I smacked it at over 100 mph, it slightly bent the splitter struts but otherwise escaped unscathed. I was lucky!

Thanks man, I'm tempted to take it up a notch and do some door to door racing, but I don't think I could afford it. For now, HPDEs and time trials will have to do.

That's is Awesome!!

Are those Evo 2 US or just Evo 2?


Who did the roll cage? Also how did you deal with the airbag and dash light when removing stock seats.

Thanks for doing that, I bet the majority of Z/28 owners will at least appreciate tracking. Hopefully many will experience theirs on the track, it is going to be one capable beast.

With all of the downforce from the rear wing, I felt I needed a bigger splitter to try to balance the car. As it is, Travis told me that my front end is a bit lifted going down the main straight. I think the car would push with the wing and just the stock splitter. I drool when I see the Z/28's splitter and fender flares, that's a well designed system.

I found one on the lot with only two options- RS and 1LE. That kept the price down so I could spend the difference on mods. Plus, I got a '13 when the '14s were due out, so they gave me a deep discount. In the end, I did an ARH full exaust so I'm glad I didn't get the dual mode.
