I had something similar happen.

And the VMAX is snake oil.

Love your build.

Got my powder coated calipers today! This pretty much finishes off all of the planned appearance mods I wanted to do to my car. I honestly can't think of anything else I would do appearance wise to my car. The orange doesn't match the IOM perfectly (the calipers are a little bit lighter), but it is pretty close. It is nice to know my wallet woin't be taking anymore hits that won't make my car faster. The swap was pretty easy, just had the wife pump the brakes while I bled them.

I REALLY want to drive next to my car to see these calipers through the spinning wheels on the road!

Total cost of todays mods: $330
Caliper swap from Mike: $330

Yours look good. Makes me feel better about the IOM ones mike just did for me. I only have IOM stripes, but the powdercoat did look a little off from the actual stripe color. Seeing yours look that good puts my mind at ease.

7/2/11 So I have a goal of reducing Ginger's weight without taking anything away from being able to daily driver. I was a little worried about this battery not holding up, since I always have my Ac on, stereo blasting and raise/lower my top multiple times everyday. I have had it on for almost a week now and it has been GREAT! It actually has a little more voltage than the stock battery. Keep in mind I also have the ASP under drive pulley so the alternator is spinning slower than stock and the battery still hold up great. Only think I don't do anymore is sit in the car with it off and lights/stereo on or operate the top.

Stock battery is about 44 lbs and this one is just under 15 lbs. I also removed the compressor/slime and styrofoam holder. So all together I lost about 36 lbs.

I used some foam pads I had laying around to secure the battery in the stock location.

Cost of Today's mod: $158.52
Braille 2015 15 lb battery $158.52

I just checked Ebay and found one for $130 shipped

Since I am sure my convertible rub mark problem is fixed ( problem http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=142513 My fix after dealership FAIL http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=153498), I decided to treat my top with some 303 fabric guard. I followed the directions after her bath last week and went on my way. I had completely forgotten about it until it was time for this weeks bath. the way the water just ran off the top looked so cool, so i grabbed some video. This was after it was already washed. It looked even cooler the first time the water hit the dry top, you couldn't even tell it had gotten wet!

Went to the track with some buddies today! I went this time with my new wheels and all my bolt on mods completed. The next mod will be going in the motor to install the cam and springs. Best time was 13.205 @ 110.79. Corrected for the HORRIBLE 3,351 DA that would be a 12.669 @ 114.165.

So with full bolt ons and about 5,000 more miles on\ the car I picked up .797 seconds and 6.789 mph in the 1/4 mile. Coming up next is a dyno to see how much rwhp I have picked up.

That's very similar to my numbers.

Coming along very nicely.

Washed off a bunch of bugs from the road trip and threw on a fresh coat of wax.

It's nice how that underdrive pulley helps, isn't it? I love getting 25+mpg driving to the track (250mi round trip).

Of course, once I go heads/cam, that's all over.

I got the same one on my truck, but it still only gets about 10 mpg, LOL.
