Waterford Hills Track Day: SS w/ Pedders supension

2010 SS w/ Pedders Coilovers and bushings
@ Waterford Hill Raceway





This was my 1st track day. The car performed very well. I had the shocks set to the recommended track settings - felt great. I could use some wider/stickier tires though.

A few tips for others going out for their 1st time:
1) Get some racing brake fluid - for the piece of mind. I did.
2) Show up with a FULL tank of gas.
3) Keep an eye on tire pressures. The heat caused mine to creep from 38 psi to 46 psi.


There was a ZL1 out there - I think he's a C5 member. He dominated.

nice run on lap 3
I like my PSI between 32 & 35 hot on road course.
Usually 1or 2 psi lower in the rear then the front.
