Looks great man! Did you actually drop the cash for the GM stripes or did you find those somewhere else? I haven't been able to find that particular style at a reasonable price :(

Had a great drive up and down Tantalus this afternoon in competition mode...Tantalus is a mountain road full of real hairpin turns, figured it's about as close to a road course as I'm gonna get out here. The drifters love it, I managed to break loose a few times but (thankfully) not really go sideways lol. I'll post pics in a few minutes...getting a BBQ going here this afternoon

and here's a few pics i took at one of the scenic points overlooking Waikiki and Diamond Head Crater. also met a retired Air Force guy up there while we were stopped, and got started talking...as we left he was shooting pics of the car "to calibrate the color in his camera" lol

Shawn and Ozzy, your pics look great. I like the red stripes shawn. I too went out today on some wild rides. Broke traction making a left turn when I got in to it, and 2nd gear really came to life. Oh, Went into a convenience store for lottery tickets, and somebody shouted who owns that Camaro out there. Anyway the young cashier ran out and was gasping over my car..lol..well, I'm glad she found it exciting!

Just talked to the dealer and my baby is awaiting my return. After waiting all this time, it arrives while I have to be away. I will pick it up Monday. I should be getting some pics shortly.

See my Ride Control System thread. Pressing and holding does not put the car into competitive mode; it puts the car into StabilTrak system OFF mode. I'm assuming that for track days we want StabilTrak OFF mode and not competitive mode. Competitive Mode does have computer control for straight line acceleration.

Remove the bow tie from the front and rear. Remove the SS from the front and read. Add the 1LE to the cowl. Done. Stripes are hot.

Careful. If you know what you're doing, great. I rode with one of the Racing Pros from Hooked on Driving today. His recommendation was to leave it on, even on the track, until you feel hampered by the car. THEN turn it off to push a bit more.

Are you saying not to use competition mode? Or just not to turn everything off?
