Detroit Speed and Kyle Tucker are at the heart of the Pro Tour movement. In this particular case, movement is apt.

yep, that is Detroit speed. These guys are huge in the pro-touring industry.

I absolutely LOVE their camaro. Awesome build with fantastic work, and all done in 8 weeks. They were out at the fest too.

Here's a link to their full build journal.

this is the kind of shop that can take another 80-100lbs out of the z/28.

why not removable steering wheel?

couple red flags though...all this and they don't use a Motec/AIM dash?

not sure suppression system is triple f?

Prepping a car for One Lap also means prepping for 4-5000 road miles. Air bag might have some positive impact. It did last year when Dubler put a CTS-V over the catch fence at Road America. Stuff happens.

From OEM to -100 lb. is no problem. But sitting on a dealer's floor, that way, would make 'em a tough sell.

I think Mark Stielow is familiar with them, too.

I have on 2 of those tires with 2000 miles on them, no punctures or scars at all. If interested let me know, I am looking at Toyo R888 for my next tire. Rivals seem like they will last 30,000 miles.

^^THIS! Probably one of the best pro-tour builders and suppliers of pro-touring parts out there along with Ring Bros. and The Roadster Shop.
