2010 Victory Red 1LT/RS Build Thread [Auto-X & DD]

Hey Everyone, this is Lil' Red, my 2010 1LT/RS Victory Red Camaro. It was #645 off the production line. I'm currently 19, and my parents bought me this car when it first came out. My dad also purchased a 2011 Black 1SS/RS a year later. So, shorty after the purchase of this car, she was in a wreck.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25702

After this was resolved, I began to make her my own. I am now attending the University of Tennessee for nuclear engineering and have recently found an addiction to autocross. I'm running with the ETR group of SCCA for the Spring, but that will probably change when school lets out. Below is a list of my current mods, and upcoming mods. Hope you all enjoy.

Added my new IVS Havoc interior, ACS T2 splitter and my Unrestricted Motorsports spoiler. Working on a new v6 engine cover, and cleaning up my engine bay.

The Engine Cover Project






This project has been put off, since we painted and polished most of what it would have covered.

Instead I decided to go this route:

I bought it from Southern Car Parts. I think it is like a $800-$900 kit, but what happened was a guy ordered the kit, then sold his car before recieving the kit, so Southern Car Parts took the kit back for him and had a one time sale price of $700, and thats the kit I got.

It came with Front and Rear Seats, Center Console, and Door/Dash Trim which I didn't install.

We actually put that on the backburner for now. We ended up just polishing the intake and painting the head covers instead.

The splitter is the ACS T2 splitter.

I am really digging your setup. Are the rims painted black or powder coated? Where did you get them done at? Also, where did you purchase the front ground effect kit from? Nice looking ride.

Thanks man. The rims are actually just plastidipped for right now, since I plan on getting new rims this spring. The front splitter is the ACS T2 splitter.

Thanks for all the comments, I've just recently installed the MRT v2.0 exhasut, along with Apex's washer bottle relocator and air scoop. All three seem to be great products, and top notch service from Apex Motorsports.

Thanks for the comments! I want to lower it, but with the roads around here, I would be dragging my front splitter everywhere.

Autocross Event 7/28/13

I attended my 4th autocross event this weekend and I'm loving it. I still have a lot to learn about my car and autocross in general but I had a great time. Anyone else autocross on the stock PZeros?

Just so you know man. I have the GM GFX and I just lowered my car on Eibach springs last week. It looks a heck of alot better but still rides higher then a stock Corvette rides. I said the same thing that you did about where I live but I have had no problems at all. I am betting, expecially with your auto cross, that you will love the way the vehicle feels with just the 1" drop.

Most of the events are in the Charleston, WV area and they are once a month, however I doubt I'll make anymore since I'm in Tennessee for college now.

Tail of the Dragon

I'm posting these up a little late, but last month I made my first trip out to the Tail of the Dragon, the experience was great. I apologize for the grainy pictures, all I had brought with me was an iPhone. I'm hoping to go back again sometime with a better camera and a GoPro!









We also purchased a couple of photos from the vendors that are set up:

Great photos man - Tennessee is a beautiful place and lots of twisties. We can help set you up on the suspension end of things if you want to knock some seconds off your autocross time. Just hit me up!
