Well I had already pulled the airbag fuse before I did the seats to avoid the risk of them going off when I track, so I do have the annoying airbag warning and dash light. I have to clear the warning by touching the menu button, but the red airbag light stays on. I might just stick a black sticker over it. Tacky, I know, LOL. It doesn't bother me much.

No kidding? Small world. Did you buy your ZL1 from them? They had one for sale a while back.

I'll be at Thunderhill June 7 - 8 with Hooked on Driving. Any chance you can make it? It's the new 5 mile course, and unfortunately it's selling out quick. A Group is already sold out on Saturday.

Thanks.
Just stock calipers and rotors so far. Hawk HP+ pads, stainless lines, Motul 600 fluid. It's working surprisingly well. I was taught to brake earlier and longer, rather than threshold brake at the last minute. This has advantages. Tires don't overheat, you can run consistently faster laps longer than if you hammer the brakes. So I don't seem to need them, yet any way. But everyone's driving style is different. I'll probably do aftermarket rotors at very least, maybe even bigger calipers. But for now, don't seem to need them.

I just checked and both A and B are sold out, so I missed this one. I have not tracked this car yet so I'd want to start over in A, esp with the new layout. I may drop in as an observer.

No I didn't buy it there, but they do have a cool selection of cars.

I'll send you a PM if I can find a way to participate, or can just make it there to check out the fun.

Which fuse is the air bag ones? Where is it? And which air bags exactly will deactivate?

I was wondering when you were going to post. I almost couldn't wait to spill the news how amazing you and your Camaro ran yesterday!

It was great to watch your Camaro eat up the white GT3 Porsche and all the super high dollar Cadillacs.

Glad I had an excuse (putting miles on the car) to drive out.

It's killing me that I don't have an event planned for the Camaro until July. I had one planned for May but it got cancelled. I'll have to squeeze one in somehow. Good luck at Fontana Kirk, wish I could join you guys.

Good vid. It said her ZR1 is stock except for aero, but I don't think hers was stock at Buttonwillow. I can't imagine a stock ZR1 + aero running a 1:52 at Buttonwillow, the track record in an ACR is 1:55. Interesting, hopefully I'll get a chance to talk with her more at an upcoming event.

See you at Thunderhill Brian.

Todd

It's one of the fuses in the box panel at the driver's end of the instrument panel. It's marked, that's about all I can remember. I assume it deactivates all airbags, Sean that races the black Camaro showed me the one to pull.

Thanks Travis, it was good to hang out with you. Hopefully next time you'll be tracking that bad machine with me.

Apparently you can (or will be able to) buy a harness that plugs into the wiring and fool the computer into thinking the seats are connected. Ever heard of something like this?

OC 1LE,

Man, it looks like your mods really paid off. Your car sticks like glue in those corners. I had to double check the speed readouts to make sure I was seeing them correctly. Don't you just love it when a plan comes together. I am so glad everything worked out they way you wanted it to. Your car is smoking it on the track man.

I am going to go watch your video a few more times.

Don't forget to include these in the new Road Course and Auto X area.

T.

Here's how the splitter support struts are mounted: First, the JDP tow hook is mounted to frame with all of the holes shown in the first image. Next, a horizontal plate is bolted to the tow hook in the middle, and the ends are supported by custom L-brackets that are mounted to the same frame member that the tow hook mounts to. The support struts are attached at the very ends of the horizontal plate. It's hard to show it in pictures, but hopefully 2nd picture will give you an idea.

Works for me. Thanks, looks like I've got some fabrication to figure out before mounting mine. We're using a RACETECH tow strap vs. the hook. I like my shins cut free and not bloody. I've got a few ideas already but have to get the car and then pull the bumper off to see how to piece it all together. Looks like a trip to the steel place is in order for some scrap.
