I'm happy to see you're having fun with your car, but this is a great example of why I don't like to buy used cars!

Omg..... Really? Do you think for a second that a few spirited runs at the track (safest place to do such endeavors) is going to magically degrade a car? If it's a stick car and it wheel hops bad, sure you can pop an axle. Guess what, it can be fixed. An auto car most definitely will be much safer at the track. My Camaro was used and so was my GT Mustang. Guess how many issues I had from them both being raced at the track...........

Great conversation about a Camaro owner and fun with their car. Then Camcar hijacks the thread and makes it about him/her. Get over yourself.

Best of luck with getting it all dialed in, OP!

Seriously! Talk about a party popper...... LOL. Just work on getting that short time down. With you living at such a high elevation, your ET and trap speeds are going to suffer. Main thing is you have a current benchmark to go off of. One race at a time and you'll get it dialed in. Good luck!
