This is the video clip of the last session at the Track Attack. Got some clear track at times and was lapping at 1:20 or less.

Well, we have the Vette totaly a part now. Were all good from the firewall back, no chassis damage. From the firewall forward is another story. Get out the sawzall and cut the chassis off from there. Hope to get the Vette on the chassis table by early next week.

Were hoping to have it back in race trim by the end of July. It's kind of like starting over again.

Just a further footnote to the DBA rotors. I just weighed one prior to putting them on the bus to El Diablo. The weight of one rotor is 21.8 LBS. Once El Diablo does the swap I'll get him to weigh the stock rotor.

No not yet. 2-step and line lock are on hold til I get the tranny issues sorted out. My re-build tranny has a input bearing tearing it self apart. Will be going back to dealer soon and they will be pushing for a re-placement, since it has already been overhauled once.

There is really nothing to it, except mounting the micro switch to clutch peadal assembly. I plan to remove the drivers seat to gain access to work on it. You will need the micro swith from NOS.

Sorry I can't help you yet, but once I install it I will post pic's

Don't worry Bud. I know it's been done before, but nobody has posted pic's yet. You have to install a micro switch of some sort to make it work. I chose the NOS one because it is adjustable which is a must. Soon as the tranny issues are sorted out, the line lock goes in. Just don't want to explain the line lock to the dealer.

I'll PM once it done.

Just finished installing red led lights in the engine bay on the valance over engine cover. Wired to the same switch as the footwell lighting. Not really into that kind of bling..............but should make the engine bay pop in low light.Will take some pic's later when it's dark.

Deadfrog time at Straddle Craft. Have to sweet talk Ken into repairing my front facia after the damage that the Road Wrap caused on the way to C5F II. It does work excellent for the rear quarters at track nights though.

PM'd you with the name of the manual tranny place. Like I said they built a ridiculous one for the Firebird a while back and now they do 2010 Camaros so must be the 6060s.

Cool! I'll check them out. Your Firebird is ridiculously cool, I fell in love with your Firebird when I saw it in Valdosta a few years back. I can hardly imagine how ridiculously cool SST will be.

Another footnote to the 2-step......you can't leave it banging on the cat's for extended periods of time without doing damage. Talked with Nick from ARH at C5F II on that topic..............so if your going to use it a bunch, you should have a cat delete system or the ability to change back and forth. I just got to drop Nick a line and he is going to hook me up with the pipe's to change my ARH system to cat delete as well.
