I spoke with Ryne at CMS who was at the track that weekend and he said get rid of the shitty oil and your pressure issues will be gone. Oil cooler would help as well. Just an FYI Mark.

I was on the last lap of the session so I just drove slow and gave everyone point by's. A quick fix in the garage and I was out for the 5th session. I got stuck behind a 45th edition Camaro with no courtesy point by....

It was good to see you and your 1LE in person. I can't wait to install my "Red" 1LE Brembo brakes soon. I was going to ask if I could ride along to see how you drive and learn some tips but I caught up in the moment and forgot to ask you. lol

You missed Bryon spinning out on the last session! I think he *hit some brinks thinking he broke his car. After a quick ignition restart he was off and running again.

Oh, and welcome to the Inland Empire Camaro Club!
You ran with the stock brakes?

nothing wrong with taking a completely stock car out. People get caught up in making their car track ready but how do you know what improvements you've made without trying before hand? Just make sure your tires are good and have enough pad left and hit the track!!

Man, that is just awesome guys. Cornerspeed, you were cooking for a stock 1LE, I can't believe that time! I don't know the track but can tell by the cars you are mixing it up with, you were flat flying, LOL.

The yellow Z06 is driven by a friend of mine, Jesse. Good guy, I met him at Buttonwillow at his first ever tracking event, he's clearly come a long way and just barely edged you despite his HP and weight advantages. Jesse ran a 1:40 at Willow Springs when I was there, then recently a 1:34 with slicks the next time out. He's hooked like us.

And Kirk, kicking ass and taking names! Tell us the truth, this isn't really your 6th track day

Cornerspeed, don't laugh but I bought a Roval track decal that was going on my back window next to Buttonwillow, Thunderhill and Willow Springs. Mark my words, I'll get a chance to apply that decal. I'll be running NASA time trials at Sonoma and Laguna Seca this year, along with Thunderhill and maybe Buttonwillow. Hopefully we will finally meet up and track one day soon.

Must have been cool to run with 11 Camaros. Good times gentlemen.

Hi guys. I ran in an HPDE at Texas world speedway in a stock SS this weekend. Oil temps were at the third tick but pressure was same as street use. 3rd gear on the track to redline with a 3-4 shift on the main straight.

I am using Pennzoil Ultra Euro 5w-30, which is a European spec oil with an HTHS of 3.7 (meaning it holds viscosity at high temps). I get it on Amazon. Might be worth trying.

I have Goodyear tires on. (See below in my sig) The tires alone made a HUGE difference in the corners.

Amen. I see too many peeps just have garage queens and modding the heck out of the cars waiting for the perfect track set up but they never go to the track! My main reason for staying with the OEM V6 brakes at my first real track event was to see and feel the difference when I upgrade to my SS Brembo's.

I also have a 1LE suspension track pack waiting to install but I want to install the Brembo's first, track the car, then install the 1LE suspension so I can feel what changes were made.

Cornerspeed, this looks like a great little gtg that you put on! Please include me in your next round of invites if you would. I have a 2014 summit white 1LE that I have yet to take to the track but have been itching to. Only track event I ever did was in my race truck put on by truckin magazine, it was so fun that I went out and bought myself a real track car!! (my 1LE)

Thanks for the updates and sharing your experience!

Thanks Todd, yeah i brought my A game. I was 7th fastest overall, but that's mixing apples and oranges as the 1st 5 are actually "RACECARS" so on a level playing field i was 2nd fastest only to a Z-O6. I finished 2nd by like what...a lug nut.Here are the times, open the dates and click on May 4th. I too am in the same quandary.I have Miller motorsports park, but have to wait til Aug. to earn that badge. http://www.speedventures.com/results/Default.aspx

Oh ok. I kinda figured that the stock Bridgestone are bad tires for this. I need tires and maybe a tune because my speed limiter is at 118

I was only able to reach a top speed of 125 mph in my 2011 1LTRS on the front stretch, so take that into consideration if your thinking about your warranty, cause you will lose it if you tune. I went back and found a video of what it looks like to drive a V6 on that track.
hope this helps your decision.

Yeah i don't think I want to lose warranty for justa few extra mph. Since I'm a beginner I probably shouldn't be doing anything over 120 anyway. I just gotta save for wheels and tires and I'm doing this. Unless you think the Bridgestone a will hold up?

I have no knowledge about those tires, i know that your car's limiter is at 118 because of those tires. When your warranty is up and you tune it, i know from 1st hand experience your car will do 155 mph. I would go to the tire part of the forum and post a thread there stating what you want to do(try a track day), someone there will know.
