It's always humbling to run into a real baller.
I think guys who can afford a really nice car have good money, but then you meet guys who have a fleet of supercars, and it reminds me what real money is.
Who cares what it costs? It kicks butt. If you can afford it, it's no big deal.
If you can't, lots of other options.

Oh and isn't the recaros on the CTS-V an over 3000 dollar option with GM?

I'm curious. Is Redline going to sell different packages that ZL1 owners can buy and istall themselves or do we need to have Redline do the mods?

Yes we will be "packaging" what we have learned in the last couple weeks and offering them to the public as "outright" sales. However we want to continue to test what we have done thus far on a few other ZL1's. This is to ensure the results are consistent and not "one hit wonders"!

We are also working on two other camshaft designs to give some options depending on driving habits.

Thank You,

Howard

perhaps, but for apples to apples I need to adjust for what the option cost on the Shelby, right?

At this time we are good. We prefer to use internal vehicles for testing when we can and fortunately we have a few here.

Part 2 (with the mods) will be up on our site by tomorrow at 2pm. The full story will be in the August issue and on sale 7/3, though I am told most people with subs usually get it before then.
