Thank you for the Welcome.
I am in Bowling Green, Ky. I have yet to get on a track. I do know from talking with friends from Wisconsin I have many tracks within a decent driving distance besides NCM.
I am looking towards next year for myself and the car to be track ready.

Former tracks were Road America and Autobaun.


Welcome to the area, we are not too far apart. I recommend Mid-O, Barber, Memphis isn’t too shabby, and if you’re willing to go a little further, VIR.

Mid-Ohio & VIR are must do’s for me. Am not concerned about the drive for the experience.

I don't check in here often any more. Sometimes there is some random info I'm looking for, but for the most part I find that a lot of the setup information is out of date or not relevant. There is still some good SP info here but now that the car is CP I am finding more valuable things in the drag racing section of the other website. One of my biggest issues with the old info is that it was all focused around really soft spring setups. Running a more normal ride frequency means a lot of that information does not translate well. That and I am not really bound by rules.

In the mean time I'm just screwing around on the street in the RX8 shooting fireballs everywhere and enjoying not thinking about racecars too much. That is of course when the fuel pump isn't dead. And I still need to find time to ride the Speed Triple more. And clean up the M3. And finish fixing and flipping the MDX. So I have enough on my plate.

SVT cobra club puts on a great event coming up in a few weeks.

https://www.svtcobraclub.com/forums/showthread.php?t=19513

They have one every spring and fall and it's pretty decent price and it's a really good group. I try to hit both events each year.

I'm getting SMTP thread notifications now, I hope we're able to keep it that way. Thanks Kevin!


I went into the board settings and switched it over to SMTP hoping that would fix it. Sometimes it's better to be lucky instead of good. (IMG:http://www.frrax.com/rrforum/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

I'm no longer getting SMTP notifications for my subscriptions, did something change again?

It wasn't supposed to. Let me look at it.

I still love FRRAX, and will for sure!! I have yet my 99 Z28 M6 (bought it since new), and even though I have been thinking seriously about selling it, (mostly, because of me hating big time its breaking capabilities and behavior), then I remember about this site and those guys that are still pushing the boundaries of the F platform... As a miracle, it eases my mind about negative thoughts hahaha!

This a great place, because of the fountain of knowledge it represents for F-Body lovers. I really wish Kevin (aka Track bird) keeps pushing for it to improve every day, as well as the community, which is us.

Saludos desde México City.

It's been awhile since I have been in here. I miss the old days. I still have 98 SS but I just bought a C7 Grand Sport and it's an amazing car. Leaving it stock. Just thought zi would say Hi.

It's good to see you. How do you like the Grand Sport? I've been toying with selling my current 2002 Camaro, but I don't know what I'd buy. I've been considering a 1LE 6th gen or a newer Corvette.

I guess we never moved beyond the 3rd and 4th gen cars here. It was good and bad. But we are mostly an archive now. I'd love to see more web traffic here just for the sake of the board, this place hasn't made money in years. But I'm not willing to let it die yet.

The Grand Sport is an amazing car. Mine is a M7 with a Z07 package. The brakes are insane and the Michelins have a ton of grip. SS is a fun class with some badass cars.

How do you like the 7-speed? Without having driven one, seven gears sounds like too many and too much shifting for me. Do you skip gears often?

I don't have any street time in a C7 GS Z07, but I have autocrossed one quite a bit. I absolutely hate the calibrations on that car, at least on Hoosiers. It can never make up it's damn mind about what it's going to give you. When it works it's great. But that's rare enough to be unenjoyable. Everyone who has driven both are faster in my ESP car than the SSR C7, and have more fun doing it.

I finally wised up, and shut down my FB account at the end of May. Too many arguments from the 1st and 2nd amendments, to WWII aircraft, Chevy Vega engines, world history and covid. It was too hard to sift through the BS to actually have a discussion of any merit. One day whilst debating a Brit regarding the Lend Lease act, I realized I was being as petty as he was. Over and out.

^But seriously, WHO puts an iron head on an aluminum block? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif) That's just mean! And that isn't aluminum...it's A390 alloy, thank you very much! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) Chevy had designed a cast iron engine with a cross flow head, but GM had made the deal with Reynolds aluminum for the engines. Reynolds even had a cross flow head for the Vega but it failed emissions and GM "tech" designed that abomination that the Vega ended up with. Reynolds was HQ'd near me and my dad was a Chevy parts manager. Hoyt Overbaugh was an engineer with Reynolds, and bought parts from my dad on occasion. The first Vega engine I saw was in a '69 or '70 Nova he was using as a mule. Damn I'm old!
