Stock 1LE puts down a blistering 1:54.628 at Fontana.

Well I'm pretty sure you guy's know by now, but this is so cool it just has to be told again. So just click on the homepage for the whole story. I was 7th fastest over all at the track but that's kinda mixing apples with oranges. As the first 5 cars are actually "RACECARS" So on a level playing field i was 2nd fastest only to a Z-06 by like what... a lug nut. Pretty impressive cars we have here

Thanks Matt, with having KRich garaged right next to me he had a temp gauge. We checked right when we both got back and my rotors were 200 degrees cooler Since we both have 1LE's that should be a great bench mark for how well it works.

Thanks man, goes to show that a lot of us Camaro guys don't have to go too crazy with mods, video #2 shows you passing a few Miatas, I thought we weren't able to do that because our cars were so heavy, what ever.

So you beat not one but two raced prepped Z06's? Nice job Sir!

Look at those silly ZL1's trying to play catch up to the 1LE's and Z06's.

Thanks, if you didn't see this video look at the 12:00 mark as his power blows by me, then it's on. Im telling you at this point we were racing, it was intense and a blast.

Thanks, i bought the GoPro roll bar mount, but my harness bar is too low. I put the extra attachments on so it can see out the window, but was too wobbly. I bought a 4 gang plastic electrical box and cover.I got a 4x4 cut it down to a 3x3, and got the GoPro tripod mount.

I had another friend that went and had a red mazdaspeed3. It was his first time.

I think you out-braked the vettes and possibly out cornered them too. No contest for acceleration (against the Z06) but you hung in there. Very cool to beat up on Vettes that cost almost twice as much (new).

Thanks Mark, i just watched all the videos again. It was fun chasing down the Vettes. That grey Z-06 in the 3rd video, after he passed me it was game on, and we were racing, it was so cool.

Here is my first video ever. I really like my camera position. I slapped my self in the face when I saw all I was doing wrong. Now this is only a couple limited clips but I finally watched all footage and found a minimum of 3-4 seconds out there! Man I got lazy after being out of running for over 10 years. But next time I am cinfident in a sub 2.

Thanks, I was comfortable but very rusty and let some good habits go in exchange for bad ones. But always being fastest I was first out so had a couple laps of clean track. I did have a close call on my last session with no camera where some guy spun right in front of me in the middle of 3 and 4. You know just at the point where I was showing him my bumper to set up a pass! Woed her down and drove around him. Then felt bad cause maybe he felt a little intimidated.

I saw the one where you're up the Vette's ass. His lines were ALL wrong and you just ate him up in the corners.

x2 on this one. You completely out drove and out braked him.

Great job & great video!

Yea,.. nice car,.. bla bla bla.
(I can say that, I am a 1LE owner also.)

But I watched the first vid and what stands out is your mad driving skills.

You hit your marks and held your line comfortably. Touched the apex's like you drove there a hundred times. Poured it on and waited to shift like you were in tune with the car and track. You let the car sort it out instead of lifting when things got squirrally.

All I can say is ,... Nice Driving!

Oh,... and the car performed flawlessly too.

Good stuff Mark, Your lines are perfect and you look very smooth. I like your camera mount idea too. I've noticed that the speadware bar is a little low for a regulator roll bar mount from go pro. After stacking every GoPro mount I have I was able to get it high enough, but it's not very stable. I purchased the GoPro 12 inch mount, but it is also very unstable. Balue, I like your camera position. It looks like your using a headrest mount like the one below? I have recaros so I can't remove the headrest, but I'll keep them anyway

Now for the feedback,...

You wasted time racing the corvette and not the track. Also there were several times you anticipated the turn, instead of powering into them. The tires would have pulled you thru them when you downshifted into them. Let the car talk to you.

Were you using the stock GY F1 tires? I'll bet if you were using softer racing compound tires and tune up that engine for a tad more power you would have wiped the field of all except possibly the race prepped 430... I'm still smiling about this.

I've gotta say, this is a good era for us Camaro guys. We are kicking ass at the track, like no other time in the Camaro's history.
