Just for track use only? I hear they are terrible for street driving.

I moved mine from one garage to another today so I could work on my 69 camaro. First time it had been started in over a month.

You don't want to use distilled water if it touches aluminum, because of increased corrosion. Hydronium ions will attack aluminum parts. You need some calcium or other minerals in the system, not too much though.

Yes, going to Cruising The Coast 1st week in Oct, if you remember the TV show, Racing Rednecks, they put on a nice autocross event that week, free to anyone who has a registered CTC vehicle. My 69 is going and will be registered so I can autocross the ZL1. Did it last year too, lots of fun.
Got used tires from a forum vendor w 250 miles, much cheaper than new, wont feel so bad eating them up in one week

Distilled water WITH water wetter means no corrosion.

From Redline's water wetter website:

"Rust and corrosion protection allows for use of straight water in racing or reduced antifreeze levels in warm climates"
