One thing i have learned the last 2 weeks. Any more than 10psi or about 900whp is completely useless and dangerous on a road course wheel/tire setup. I finally was able to register 15psi albeit for only a split second before the car was really loose.

Lots of fun but i have to learn all over again how to control this thing. I have never been more concerned while driving my car. Need to back off the ramp rate from 20 to about 5 on the boost leash to allow much more refined boost onset.

Twins are the best thing i could have even done! But im glad i have experienced both routes in the process.

Well that's great but please keep your experiences with your car in your thread. No one here gives a shit about road racing. Lol

Screw you all!! no problems with the car. Problems with the owner trying to drive. All I wanted was to not be afraid of it. Mission accomplished. Don spent the entire day with us. Checked over both cars. Best day is years. I'm so looking forward to the next time out.

C7 went 10.5 at 130 mph on 8 psi and 18" drag radials.

Problem with the owner is that he can't drive worth shit, and he's still back where he left off. That thing is just going to take off into orbit at a vertical standstill. lol

Of Course, I'm still waiting for my car. and waiting, and waiting.

It's pretty simple to start your own post. Say all you want about your car in your post. You should give it a try.

As for tech.... I was helping folks and sharing racing stories/info, which you have no experience doing, on Camaro 5 , long before you knew what a gen v was. Know your role.
Lmao!!!

Not bad shake downs!! Looking good!

We ordered a Pro Torque Revolution series converter. It'll take about two weeks to get. I tried to overnight it but Don said this will give me time to practice shifting.

When are you hitting the track again?

Did you get any grief over the C7 going so fast or did you put a bar in it?

Prob go again in a week or two. Even without the new converter I still need seat time and practice shifting. Shark tourney season is about to start so the racing takes a back seat during the next few months.


After the second 10.5 pass in the c7 they told us to slow down. Funny, 10.8 they were fine with but the 10.5 was to fast. The car is scheduled for a roll bar soon.

Sad part of all this is you're going to have to re-apply for a new vanity plate?

I think 8's are in your future!

No update. Lost interest in the car. It's been in my garage collecting dust for a few weeks. Haven't driven it. Using my spare time fishing shark tournaments. Once the new converter goes in and we swap out the cast wheel for the billet wheel maybe I'll get motivated to race it again.

You can or can't blow it up while it's parked? Either way it doesn't matter you'll still be able to pull it off.

How do you like driving with a centri? Much different isn't it?
