Pete's How I Broke in Motors When I used Marvel Mystery Oil to Coat the Valves

Take your new ZL1 out on a safe open raod and drive for about 30 minutes. Drive with a light foot and work through the gears, gently. Keep the RPM going up and down, gently. After 30 minutes everything is now hot and well lubricated. Let it rip through the gears. Gentle cycle. Nail it again. After a half dozen cyles let her cool and change the oil. You are ready for anything.
Now you tell me

This was my car the day after I bought it, are you saying this is not how you are supposed to break it in?

And yes, that is the wifey behind the wheel

And yeah..radius bushes and sub frame bushes are a MUST!

I have BMR Rear lower control arms already, I might look into the sway bars but I also have eibach sways which aren't the greatest but they work for my driving.

That really just leaves me with front control arms if anyone decides to make them , and bushings.

The BMR lower control arms will not accept the new style ZL1 Zway bar :(

There is no need to replace your front control arms

What diameter is your rear BMR bar?

There's got to be more!! Need folks to jump into the sign up thread (link in my signature) and state DRAG or AUTOX or both!!!!




Equipment and Tech


Helmets are Required, if you don't have one try to borrow one. Snell 2005 2010 SA or M rated helmets are acceptable. Bring your own helmet or make arrangements to share one. There will be NO SCCA loaners. If you have spare helmets and are willing to share please bring it. If you have access to a batch of SCCA rental helmets please let us know!
Your Camaro must be empty. If it isn't bolted down it shouldn't be in the car.
No drivers side floor mats are allowed.
No drips or leaks are acceptable.
Your battery and every thing under the hood and in the trunk must be bolted down securely.
Your tires will have to pass the Lincoln test, unless they are slicks.

I hope my tires will pass, they've got to be close.....

Question on the "stock"" class..... would a muffler delete dq you from that class? I think the only performance aspect of it would be a slight reduction in weight.....

So if my rear tires become slicks due to my lack of traction does that count?

Well, that is modifying the exhaust so that puts you in modified. BUT, my big question....... someone with a "stock" ZL1 falls in what class??????
