Ok...last night. First, SCCCRRRRRRRRAPE! I wouldn't have been surprised if sparks flew off of that one. WOAH. I'm afraid to get under the car and look at the headers. :(

Any pitch changes in the exhaust? A tick sound? Look at the exhaust tips. Still centered? If you answered No, No, Yes, you should be fine!

But it makes the hairs on the back of the neck stand up when it happens, right?

You have to go in those slopey driveways at an angle. You'll get the hang of it!

oh, i have wooden deck boards to give me 1/2" lift over the top of the driveway... I've had to do that for a long time. This happened out on the road when I hit a bump/dip at 30 mph.

I've had a few of those. I bottomed out a couple of times on the interstate when I hit unexpected dips. I hate that sound!!

There are few parts under your Camaro that are not self-clearancing. Cats make great skid plates.

Have you played with the harder rear softer front damping adjustments yet?

Got'em set and have a good hour of drive time tomorrow morning right after dropping off Dylan at school.

I'll have two hours of drive time on Friday where I can really feel the new settings.

1. Yes, your smilies are pretty hilarious.
2. Your parts? really....REALLY cool...(and I want more)
3. You? For a guy that's willing to get under your car at 2am while at C5FII to help someone out with a problem due to a GM part malfunction....

Yeah, I think I'd have to say I'm pretty damn floored with all three above.




Now...TOTALLY different feel than before. That front end feels "catchy." But, the rear...like, if I floor it and if there's any bumps in the road, the tires...well, they feel like they are going to kick out easily. Flat surfaces would be GREAT for this. Bumpy roads seem like they could be an issue. But, awesome feel. I get to go cross town tomorrow. The afternoon drive will be a bit more exciting.

I wondered what he was doing under your car at 2AM... I thought you had run over him.
