Great vid! Mean machine and all business. Looks like something Mad Max might like. ;-)

Any reactions from folks on the street? Have always heard that LA is fairly ambivalent toward anything that's not ultra high end. I have a feeling your car elicits some attention, however.

Congrats man, is this still your original engine? How many miles on the car now? Awesome to see someone tracking a Z like this. Seems like a really reliable setup we have here.

Thank you. About 6k miles all track and a few street runs. Stock engine with cat back exhaust. 2 years of dedicated trackmuse and it has been super reliable.

Unsprung weight

4.5 lbs of reduced unsprung weight with @racingbrakeusa lightweight rotor kit. This is spectacular to be able to pull this much weight of the corner. This will yield huge gains for us in the 2018 season. They also services the calipers and did full inspection to make sure we will be able to own the braking zone come race season. #racingbrake #racingbrakeusa #camaro #z28 #Z28camaro #gen5 #ls7 #chevyperformance #americanmuscle #musclecars #racecar #nasaracing #aero #chevy #chevroletperformance #becauseracecar #powertoweightratio #brakes #rotors #ccm

Stock rear hats are stainless steel due to emergency brake drum, the pds require a steel surface for the shoe pads. Racing brake is aluminum with a steel insert pressed in for drum friction.

I might have to try these out that is a huge mass savings. I am still debating pulling the whole E brake assembly out since I really never use it (michigan is as flat as it gets)

Have you checked for play yet?
+1 on the warranty.

With all of this weight savings and cutting on the car why not add power? Headers and catless midpipes, a stronger valvetrain to support all of the tracking your doing, port the heads and throw in a cam...

I am actually considering removal of the e Brake assembly as well since the cars all apart. It’s nice to have as a backup when rolling car into trailer and a few other times. We will see.....
