Thanks for the reminder, I'll take a look hopefully tonight. Got the car back from the shop Thursday night, then headed to the track Friday. The center rods are tied to a custom bracket, the tow hook is also tied to it. Very beefy, I'll see if I can snap a pic or something.

Good thing they're beefy, I came around a big sweeper to find a plastic wheel housing liner right in the racing groove! I smacked it at over 100 mph, it slightly bent the splitter struts but otherwise escaped unscathed. I was lucky!

Thanks man, I'm tempted to take it up a notch and do some door to door racing, but I don't think I could afford it. For now, HPDEs and time trials will have to do.

That's is Awesome!!

Are those Evo 2 US or just Evo 2?


Who did the roll cage? Also how did you deal with the airbag and dash light when removing stock seats.

Thanks for doing that, I bet the majority of Z/28 owners will at least appreciate tracking. Hopefully many will experience theirs on the track, it is going to be one capable beast.

With all of the downforce from the rear wing, I felt I needed a bigger splitter to try to balance the car. As it is, Travis told me that my front end is a bit lifted going down the main straight. I think the car would push with the wing and just the stock splitter. I drool when I see the Z/28's splitter and fender flares, that's a well designed system.

I found one on the lot with only two options- RS and 1LE. That kept the price down so I could spend the difference on mods. Plus, I got a '13 when the '14s were due out, so they gave me a deep discount. In the end, I did an ARH full exaust so I'm glad I didn't get the dual mode.

I'm a big believer in instruction. Before I got into tracking my friend had a piece of advice: Upgrading the nut behind the wheel is the best tracking mod you can do, LOL.

At Spring Mountain I took the Ron Fellows Level 1 Corvette School, tracked a few times, went back for Level 2, and recently took a two day private lesson there. Tremendous experience, and lots of fun. At very least the Level 1 school is something that even an experienced track rat can learn from. The mix of classroom theory with behind the wheel coaching is invaluable in understanding safe car control.

Hey Lio,

Driver's seat is an Evo, and passenger seat is an Evo II (US, I believe). The only difference is that the Evo is a little narrower, which keeps my narrow ass properly planted. The Evo II is more comfortable for a variety of passenger sizes and shapes.

Roll bar was fabbed by Tracklogic Motorsports in Rocklin. A little north of you.

I just got two Sparco Evo 2 myself. And ordered the 4 point roll cage from RPM.
But I been wondering how to install the the seats and get rid of the air bag and light in the dash how did u deal with those?

Thanks. I'll look forward to the pics. My 1LE is to be at the dealer tomorrow or Wed so I'm patiently awaiting it's arrival.

Though I had seen your car at Tracklogic. It's pretty bad ass to be sure. Hope to see you at the track someday. I'm fairly local to T-hill and have run there in a different car. Have yet to run the ZL. Thought I'd drop you a note and say your cars rocks, and I enjoy reading your write ups.

Hey Orange Crush,
Curious what Brake set up you are running? Looks like the stock 1LE calipers but can't tell for sure. I'm sure you are running different pads but I was curious about the caliper/rotor set up you are using....if you are willing to share that info anyhow.

Thanks.
