I originally thought a brake system designed for a 580hp car will be fine for a car with half the power. That's like short shifting a ZL1 at 3000 rpm. It didn't made sense to me at first but I gave...

My understanding is larger brakes lower temperature and allow for less aggressive pads to be used on track. If 6-piston Brembos allow V6 cars to use stock pads on track, that will save the hassle of...

Don't pull it. It'll just twist off counter clockwise. The tab is a stop to prevent over tightening.

8.5" will work great with 245/45 tire and give you plenty of alignment options. Have you look into other ZL1 replica options? 20x10 will work with 275/40 as well.

Thanks for posting this even though it was hard to read. About 20% stiffer spring rate, slightly stiffer stabilizer bars, and stronger mounting points (end links?) are interesting.
