Pete, when timing, do you recommend central time or daylight savings time or what?

We want to be Pedders Perfect so we use Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the mean solar time at longitude 0°

Well I wasn't able to get the best pictures, but here a few I got with my phone...

Regardless, she's all aligned, times and tuned! Just a sway bar away from track ready!

Also thought it was funny that while parked next to this $100k Porsche, not one but TWO people pulled their phones out for a picture of the Camaro, and walked right by the Posrche!

These cars seem to put Porsches in their place on a pretty regular basis.

How much if at all would changing the wheels and tires affect the alignment? Going from the 20" stock wheels to 17" Bogarts for the track.

It won't alter your alignment at all. Think of it this way. We could attach the alignment head directly to the wheel hub. The wheel hub would be aligned. Anything you bolt to the wheel hub would be the same. So your wheel hub was aligned with your OE 20"s and will have the same alignment with the 17"s.

Now if we aligned you car with different size wheels at the same time i.e. one 17" front and one 20" front it would not be correctly aligned when you put to 20s or two 17s on. I am making this more complicated than it should be. Your fine with your 17s.
