Can't make the party on the 14th. The 13th is ChriSStine's work party, the 14th is my work party and the 15th is my neighbors party. We have already committed to all three. I leave to go back to Argentina on the 16th. As an FYI Nikko's does not take reservations. Unless that has changed in the last three weeks.Wherever y'all go have fun.

Man y'all missed a good time today. Everybody had personal best. It was fast. I hope all y'all can make it next month. Mike you better request off that week end. Haven't seen you out there in a while. Getting all those goodies and not putting them to use. You too Tara. Better request time off so you can break in that car. Or call in sick

Talking

It was a great weekend. Good to get together with you all. Even talking with the others there about their cars. I got car sick riding with Jason and Mike. It's a lot different when you're not driving. Jen even talked Neomi into riding with her. See you all at the next meet up.

What do you think of the new tires? I really liked them.

Definitely a good choice. Definitely recommend them. I would have to say they contributed to my faster times.The old ones were so far gone I'm surprised I didn't spin off the track. Told Ray he needs to pick up so for the front of his car. ChriSStine wants to stick with the OEM Pirrelli's. We'll get those this month for her.

Hey Mike,

I'm at 1100 miles now. I'm taking a few days off before Christmas to visit with my daughter and her boyfriend who is flying in in a couple of weeks.

The car should be broken in by next autocross, for sure. I hope to see everyone at the STBR meeting next week, unless we have a get-together on Saturday night before. The temperature is forecast to be nice for Saturday night the 8th, so we should try to get together at A&W. I drove by last Saturday night and the place was infested with Mustangs

Also, on another note, I need recommendations on what wax product to use. I bet there's a lot of opinions, or is there a consensus on a particulatar brand/type?

Take care!

Tara

I haven't had a chance this week to enjoy driving my car, so I'll probably go to A&W anyway, if any stragglers wanna meet me.

Good news I'd I have my spare tires in my garage now, so that's a relief. Has anyone visited the issue locally of trying to obtain a rim/tire combo that will fit over the Brembos, but yet fit in the tire well as a full size spare? I'd like to do that...

I hope to see some peeps at NAPA and/or A&W.

Take care and Happy Friday!

Tara

Don't think spare in the well is gonna work. The SS has the battery located in the well. Pretty sure you will be the same since you are basically an SS with an added option package. A far as a spare rim/tire combo, most SS owners that go that route purchase a front rim and tire and use that. The rear rims won't fit the front without rubbing. Remember its just a spare and temporary. You can get yours used from members sometimes or pay up at the dealer. What are your stock rim sizes? Not sure if an SS rim will work for you. They are 20X8 in the front and 20X9 in the rear. GL

Mike,

I know that any such obtained spare would be temp-only. I'd like to do some travelling later on in my Camaro and would like the security of having a spare tire should I have a major debris-related tire failure out on the highway. I'd rather not be dependent on a wrecker should a tire problem exceed the capability of the little air pump in the trunk.

I think an SS rim would work, as you say, a front only. My 1LE rims are 10x20 on the front and 11x20 on the rear. The brakes, calipers and rotors on the 1LE are supposed to be regular SS parts.

Aren't all Camaro5 batteries in the trunk? I thought they were... I know that I'd also have to get a small jack and tire tool as well as the tire/rim combo. It would only be for out-of-town trips. I might try to buy a spare set of SS rims just for good measure anyway. I figure they'll maintain their value as years pass anyway.

Thanks; you always have the best advice! Take care on the way to San Antonio!

Tara
