You're welcome sir. I may just cook up a few special tweaks after thinking about our results. We wouldn't want anyone to get close enough to the L/28 to recognize it from behind

Loved that video, the car sounds great, I was impressed with how flat it ran through the corners!

As long as you let me in on those tweaks... I want to run with that big dog.

My fortune teller told me there is a LPE LS7 crate motor in my future...

NO S/C.... just really good parts, and a little bit of LPE magic from Graham.

Well...Danny Popp in the massaged Z-oh-6 isn't exactly a rookie...and Mark Stielow must have a zillion miles of seat time in similarly tweaked 'Gen-1 Camaros of his building (Year 2 for this version)...

Dave is an excellent driver. He had to be. We tried to run the Z/28 at Gingerman to get Dave comfortable and the car dialed in. The weather would not cooperate so what we got were a handful of laps on a wet track with the ambient being 40 degrees and the track the same temperature. All we accomplished was to confirm the L/28 ran. Dave' first ever hot laps were the three he ran at the OPTIMA.

What you have seen of Dave and the L/28 is the tip of the iceberg. We have a to do list from the event. They may all be incremental refinements, but when you put them all together on track they are HUGE. We'll log more track time for the L/28 and Dave. When they are both dialed in they will be

A question regarding Curb Weight of the L28: seems to me in the video interview they mentioned 4100 lb with driver. So, without Mike, about 39-3925 (or 200 less than ZL1 Base Curb)? Were there coolers, present, for diff/trannie etc?

As to "potential", we can only imagine...and wait...

4100 and change is race ready fuel and driver

The Optima Challenge was on the SPEED channel last night. I hit fast forward on a couple parts, but As far as I could tell, the L28 never got any air time. :(

He posted truck torsion bars elsewhere, but was vague... as many different vehicles as they deal with, I appreciate him hanging with the Camaro crowd as much as he does
