Last time there I was starting out in the 31psi range cold (in my garage before leaving to go there), hot I would see 38/39psi after a track session. I might play with taking more pressure out in the front (29 or 30psi) to see if car responds better. Slight understeer noted in turn 3 and 10.
Last time I was there it rained all morning, windows were up. I did the same tire pressures.

My Baby girl is ready for tomorrow.

New rear tires, fresh differential fluid and a more aggressive alignment.

Let's have fun!

Wow! What a day! Probably the most fun I have had yet in the Camaro! I learned a few things too! My instructor was fantastic and I even got to ride with him in his Lotus for some incredible hot laps!

Thank you Mr. Wyndham, BeckyD, CGI, and everyone who put this event together! Thanks T. And Matt for all your advice, and Zeus for loaning me his GoPro! Now I have to figure out how to get all the chunks of rubber off the wheels! I don't think my Camaro has been this dirty since forever!

IT was a blast meeting and hanging out with everyone. Gingerman is definitely a technical track and lots of fun. I just wish it was not so damn hot today.

I am looking forward to Matt's video's (TLSTWIN). He had like 5 GoPro's on his car. Thanks for lunch too.

I made it home with no issues so I think my issue was heat related. I was done anyway. I hope everyone else makes it home ok.

What a day!!! It was great to see everyone at the track. The CGI
instructors were great. You couldn't ask for better when you are
a beginner.

Thanks Mr Wyndham for putting this together. Maybe next time you'll
be able to participate.

Thanks Phil and Holly from CGI. You have a classy group of really nice
people. Hope we can run an event with you again soon. Holly - thanks
for the ride -amazing!!

I ran some lap times and will post it when I get to a computer that
can do it

T., Glad you made it home ok and your welcome.

We just got home and unloaded.

I am starting the process of getting the videos to my computer.

I really enjoyed meeting everyone and glad everyone got off the track with no problems that couldn't get handled quickly and no issues getting anyone home.

It was a good day

We are cooling off in the hotel after an awesome day! Thanks to everyone that had a hand in putting this event together. My instructor was great as well, I learned a ton and can't wait to do it again. It was awesome to meet everyone that I did from here as well. Lots of sweet rides.

I'll post pics and vids when I get home and on a more capable computer.

PS - My poor car has never been this dirty... and just got rained on for the second time on three years - kind of liberating

Great day guys, it was a blast. Matt tx for the tire plug again, a bolt in the tire the first session is not how I wanted to start the day, luckily it held up rest of the day.

Its rare that I get excited over some recreational activity, but what a freaking day. For those of us who didn't have any mechanical issues it was awesome. The rain held out, we got saved from the heat by the breeze, for the most part, and the time on the track with our cars was perfect. CGI was a great group all around from my instructor Mark, to all the others I had talked to. All of them were very patient, helpful and instructed from a professional perspective. I never imagined of pushing my car to the limit (and beyond in my case) and thinking it would take it. Driving this hard is something I would of never did without the instructor continuing to hone my driving style to get the most out of the track and car. The ride alongs with the pros in thier cars was a whole 'nother experience, Talk about perma-grin. I would definitely do this again and will probably go back in august when CGI puts on another event at Gingerman. I think I caught the bug. Good to see some familiar faces and nice to meet a couple new ones.

I really wanted to get in the 1:44s but with that heat it was tough. I ran 1:46.20 a few times and consistent 1:46/7s. My pads are gone even though the cooling ducts saved my behind. Tires are looking like the Z/28 ones.

And no joke about the wind, it saved us in that heat!

I had a blast at the event, thanks to CGI and everyone for hosting such a top notch event. I definitely had some issues in the afternoon when my serpentine belt snapped mid run and my car limped around the track. I literally thought I blew up my car and wanted to puke. Special thanks to Halo Supercars who literally went above and beyond to help me. They found out the belt part number, called around and drove an hour to bring it back to me. They installed it, told me to follow them to their shop so they could make sure I would make it home safe. Tom, Jody, and Brent are of the highest caliber guys.

Special thanks to Zeus for keeping me sane and making sure I made it home safe too.

Overall it was only $40 worth of damage and a busted up hood insulation piece. It's part of the game I guess!

Will definitely be back with 10 spare belts!

How much of a difference does the ZL1 brakes make on the track? Can you tell a difference on the street? About how much did the upgrade cost if you don't mind? Thanks.
