The stock Z/28 pads are outstanding. Mine were made by Pagid. I am not certain how many different manufacturers GM may have used for them.

Race track sound limits. Like my note said, I need to be no louder than 88 db at 50 feet from the car at WOT. That is where the sound meter will be.

Decibel Level

Does anyone have an idea on what the decibel level is at WOT on the "completely stock" Z/28 is?

I need 88 db at 50 feet. Am I dreaming?

Thx
