First track day (in the 1LE) prep today.

After a meeting with a "shall remain unnamed" person at GM today (you know who you are...Thanks again!) I had a real meeting and then I ran down to Rodgers Chevrolet to get my car ready for the first day at the track at Grattan this coming Sunday.

Alignment: The car is 8 days old and has about 700 miles on it. Alignment was tweaked per recommendations.

LF/RF -1.3 and -1.4 degrees of camber, toe is within factory spec.
LR/RR -0.9 and -0.8 degrees of camber. toe is within factory spec.

EDIT: added my after sheet below.
Disclaimer: This setting is a compromise of street/track based on data/info I received..it may not be for everyone!



Oil change: Many schools of thought...but having built about a dozen motors in my life I wanted to remove the potential of any contaminants left over from assembly..(not saying there are any...but with my purchase my first oil change was free). I did not put in full synthetic as I also like to run 5w 30 Dexos oil for at least a couple thousand miles (both just personal preference)

Brake Fluid: Decided to give Motul 600 a try for the first time in my life.....Because this is the heaviest car (I have owned) that I will have tracked in my life by over 600lbs. Immediately noticed an stiffer pedal (less compression of fluid) after it was installed.

Big thank you to Rodgers for squeezing me in today!

If anyone in MI/OH/IN wants to come out to Grattan to watch, feel free.....I will have my 1LE there and I know there are two ZL1 that will be there as well as many other cars...

-Matt

badass Matt! Keep us posted on how well this car does and how much fun it was running a track car on a real track. If I thought I was even remotely close to decent I would run mine on a road course.....I guess I'm just a poser...with a bitchin 1LE

Will do...and you will only improve if you actually get out there and try!

You and me both!

I just picked up a GoPro Hero 2 and tried it on the way to work in couple different positions in the car....I will try to have some video posted next week.

Matt, how many miles did you put on her with the factory oil before the change to the non-synthetic oil?

I reread then clarified the the first post......I did not put in Full synthetic in at this time but will switch over to it after a few thousand miles (next oil change)...I used the GM 5w 30 Dexos that the dealer has on tap...

Factory oil had about 700 and still looked like honey.....My first oil change was free so I just did it.

What tires will you be using?

Are the neg camber settings max available with the stock suspension?

But you put 700 on it on the Mobile 1 that came in it correct?

Can you post your thoughts on not only the 1LE but the difference between that and the ZL1 ?

I am running on the stock tires. No, there was more negative camber available.

I do not believe the LS3 comes with Mobil one?

I never said I would be driving one of the ZL1! . Yes, Becky asked if I would mind contacting you next week to discuss the two vehicles.
