Im starting to lean toward the surface is causing it. The first part of that course is on the poured concrete and has lots of joints with varying heights and widths.

I will link it here for those who want to follow.

Yeah, mine look pretty much just like this. I am thinking a set of track wheels may become essential.

Great post. It will be interesting to see what others say. I am reconsidering my thought of 18" wheels in favor of wider 20s. Maybe 10s and 11s. Those tires get really expensive though. You ran a 59 though? That is smoking fast. Can't wait to try it out next month with ZL1 sways. When are you guys doing ray's suspension? I am still reluctant to do a full suspension, but I would like to help out with his and perhaps that will help me be less apprehensive about the full suspension package.

I believe we are doing it Saturday. I hear they are bringing the car and parts by possibly Friday and Jason will start Saturday. Then Ray and I will be home in the afternoon to finish her up. At least that was the last plan I heard.
I believe Jerry is joining the band wagon so if you miss this one you'll get another chance. Did you order sways yet?

I just got the email that my sways shipped. They will be here Thursday. I may try to get into the auto hobby shop on base Friday to get them put in. We will see.

Jason,
Let me know what time you are going to start. I should be available to help in the morning.

Hi Guys and Gals!

Name is Kyle, I have the yellow mustang at the autocross. Thought I'd join your site because this is the most active autox forum STBR has. Just wanted to say it's great to see such an active group of gearheads out there!

Mike, I've been looking around for some other examples of your tire wear but I'm coming up with diddly squat. I still don't think the shoulder wear is dangerous because the tires aren't chunking but it doesn't seem normal either. Are you able to add more negative camber up front?

Welcome Kyle. Glad you could join us.
I can add more negative camber. I'm going to be looking into my alignment more intensely when I get the car home next week. Keep the ideas flowing. My mistakes sometimes help others from making the same one.

Lightbulb Photo session

Just an idea... I don't currently have a decent camera, but I hope that we can get a lot of us together someday in daylight for a group photo. I see a lot of other Camaro owners in really nice photos, so perhaps it's our turn.

Any ideas? As the weather gets nicer, maybe a shot with the Corpus bay front in the background?

Just thinking out loud...

Tara
