This entire response is really well put and I completely agree. But this last statement is super important. This is a $60K plus car that you're throwing around a race course. Unless you're prepared...

Depending on the track, it can burn through some fuel. For a roughly 2 mile track, I count on burning 1/3 per 20 minute session. I ran a smaller track last week and I managed about 1/4 per session....

I really enjoy watching these videos for a couple reason. It's a great chance to see under the covers of the ZL1 without operating on my own. It's cool to see these guys just go after it without...

Cosworth is awesome and so is this car. Definitely get it out on the track. That's really the only place where you can push it and see how great it really is. Enjoy!

If you got it mid March 2017 the there's a good chance it's in that window. That's a pretty early car. The process to check it is somewhat extensive. You have to get the trans temp up and then check....

There was a TSB for trans overfill and one saying that the track level mention in the manual was an error. Check you car's build date and you may not need to do anything.

The first A10s off the line were in the range of 186xxx. Cars built a month later were in the 192xxx range. So I would say roughly your car was built in late March or early April.
