Yes, watching the video helped me see where I can do better next time. Turn 7 and turn 1 were my worst, I think. I need to downshift sooner in turn one and brake later as well. Best times were...

I wish this was true for racing as well... it is way more expensive than the Power Tour. I am available for sponsorships. :biggrin:

Thanks for the info, of all the looking at specs and content I did before I bought one, somehow I did not notice this. The first owner must have installed the SS gauge package.

Dumb Question?

I bought my Z/28 used and when I got it everything worked, except the trans temp gauge. I didn't think this was a big deal and was to busy enjoying it to figure out why it didn't work. Well, I had...

Yes, I ordered them through the dealer and got a good price, I thought. They said they had to convince them that they were for a track car to get them though, the order bounced the first time.

That is kind of a kick in the teeth... they weren't necessary, it was just marketing??? Even if it is true, I have never owned a car that stops (lap after lap) like the Z/28.

If you are going to track the car, you need to go back to a more track oriented tire. This will impact braking as well. Tires are the single most important thing on the track, other than the driver.

I have run against several modded C5 Z06s and, though a few were quite quick, never saw their taillights. None were race prepped like the Phoenix car above though.

I have a 2007 Suburban, but it mostly gets driven in the winter. I try to drive fun cars all summer unless I need to haul or tow something.
