ROFLMAO.....you shoulda seen the passenger who was riding with me that day. Guy about shat himself. I was already on a solid lap 5 or 6 of completely shredding and the brakes just faded man. Took me right outside the groove, cought the outter lip of the pavement and that was it.

Glad it was that turn and not the turn(s) right after. Those next three are hard concrete turns and that woulda been wayyyyy bad.

Also glad it turned out the way it did.....thanks!

LOL...thanks. Honestly, it was a bad day and I think that we accidentally deleted most of the "memories" from that day.

But now, I know a better line to take on corners like that and appreciate the late exit line a little more now......

Good question! I haven't even looked into anything like that yet. We'll head out that way I would assume. I have no problem with that.

I know most of #ccnmlife won't do the Indy thing again this year but have been amped about Vegas and/or San Antonio since it's a little closer for em.

I'd love to make the Vegas one. Been a while since I did anything with (are they even still around ??) The LVFBA back in the SLP customer appreciation days.

Those were awesome events. http://www.camaroz28.com/forums/appe...ay-pics-36022/

If you don't mind me asking, where did you get the ls3 badge on the back of your ride?

There was a vendor here on Camaro 5 that was doing them in Red. Christa emailed them and they made a set in Blue for us.

Shortly afterwards, they stopped supporting the forums and literally disappeared. I've since seen them just about everywhere now. It's literally a metal sticker.

Replacing them with the Emblempro units now. Car is actually in paint all last week and this. Almost did the color change but faced an army of people saying to keep it the same so....

At least there won't be any scratches or swirls in the paint when it comes back. LOL

Appreciate the kind words folks and keep building YOUR dream!

That sucks man This Sizzle is the Shizz el.

Nice on the scratches removal, I will need to do the same eventually as well. I was going to do it when I had the rideskinz installed, we will see!

Never give up hope Ivan!

Or some Vert doors....seems that those things are a shoe in for COTW. I don't know anybody on C5 that has them that hasn't made it yet.

I appreciate em and all that, but just not my speed. Maybe some suicide doors since there has been like 2 Camaros done up that way.
