I need to find out the particulars on it... there are a certain number of LEDs on the bulb that you want. I got these cheap from a guy in our club because he was swapping out to the ones that matched... figured they were better than stock and I'd have them ready to go, so I picked them up. Pretty sure the guys at AAC can direct you to the right ones but I'll be finding out pretty soon and let you know.

With us it's all about the pack of Camaro friends we hang with here... The wives club is pretty tight and I soon realized that Sue was in a bigger hurry to get the car than I was. Especially getting in time for the fest.

I got tired of swapping out the 22's and not really having a daily driver. This one is just everything all rolled in to one... the platform is there for some very serious mods down the line without having to get into Axles, ring gears and all the other driveline parts. The electric steering coupled w/ MR is probably what is most noticeable. Just smooth and it pulls hard when you need it so driving in traffic is a breeze, except for that M6 part..

Don't know if you saw the MotorTrend article yet or not.


My favorite part



The ZL1 holding 1.27g @ 111mph.... wow! That is planted, solid

the GT500 couldn't repeat it's first lap performance.... you guessed it, brake fade ~ bad

Declared winner all around ='d ZL1

Good thing you guys didn't start a party in here. I wouldn't have had a clue. I think I got unsubscribed from my own thread..

...but then I do have a lounge thread to hang out in now days.

Now for the bad news...

But I should have followed Pete out of the parking lot and gone backwards down the one way road to get past the median instead of following others and doing a U-turn.

Good news is wheel didn't even get a scratch, but Eagle F1 Super Car G2 is toast. Now I'm driving around with a polished SS wheel on the right front.

So that means no Cars and Coffee... I'll show up anyway to hang w/ the crew and Pete.

But even worse... no racing Saturday night unless I can find a tire right quick.

Once again. All starts with a Savini causing it.

Oh man... so true... Damn Savinis... they TOTALLY caused this

But I will say those F1's with that extra rubber lip saved the wheel

I can get one local for 549 plus tax. So I ordered one from Tire Rack for 385 including shipping. Coming from Shreveport so no tax and it will be here Tuesday.

Bummer M...

Those damn Savini's - wreaking havoc any chance they get. Can you run at the track with the matching front tire to the factory one or does that completely mess up your alignment/balance?

Luckily you will be back to normal (well as normal as you can be...) by Tuesday. Gotta love Tire Rack.
