I wanted to have carpet on the floor of the trunk, along with some heat insulation -- to keep things a little cooler in back on drives to more remote tracks. Got the factory mat, used it as a...

I hear you on the BendPak. Still deciding whether air locking is a safety feature or PITA. Ditto on the extras. However, for the dimensions I have -- on both the garage and my Z/28 -- that BendPak...

Best 4-Post Lift for my Z/28?

Yes, I realize this is a little OT. Our home flooded and we're nearing the end of a total rebuild. As part of this I'm improving the garage. It had zero insulation -- wonderful in TX -- so I've now...

I believe the Z/28 team was trying to get 18-inch wheels to work, but settled on 19s in the end. Given how tight the clearance is, even with my 19-inch Finspeeds, I get why they made that decision...

On the Trofeos, w/negative camber maxed out, I find the optimal hot tire pressure to be 32 psi. 33 is tolerable, and once I get past that the tires start to feel a touch greasy at the limit. This...

Your post did trigger my memory. I thought Al said they actually ran a 7:31 but didn't have it on video?
