My strategy is to swap wheels, not alignment settings. I have a second set of wheels that I put on the car when it'll only be on the street for a while. Those wheels carry performance all-season...

Thanks for sharing the pics, you are both getting my motivated for a return to Laguna Seca. I'll be there in July with my V6 1LE at the Speed Ventures event.

Another factor is the crowd you're in. I've felt dorky when I'm the only person at the event spraying tires. But, if you have a series of back-to-back runs on a hot day with tires that don't work...

I've been using Stop Tech STR600, which I got for about $10 a pint less than RBF 660. It works fine. When I hear reports of high performance brake fluids working badly, my suspicion is user error -...

Are you new to track driving? You didn't say, but I'm inferring that you are. If so, I am confident that the OE brakes on your car are sufficient for a beginner. However, you should flush your brake...

I agree with the Miata comparison. My previous car was a track-prepped first gen Miata, and I describe my Camaro as "a fat Miata." It's a big girl that can really dance.



Very high performance...

Your taste is similar to mine. In the 1/2 ton trucks, the Ram Bighorn with air suspension looks best to me. And Gulf Streams travel trailers look good. I favor the 19CSK, with a pop-out for a sofa...

Thanks, your comments are helpful. I can see it's really crucial to decide what trailer I get before I get the truck.

First truck - mid or full size?

I'm considering getting my first truck, and I'm weighing mid-size versus full-size. I'd use the truck for DD, and pulling a travel trailer.


I like the idea of a mid-size because of its lower...

Good point, ZED SLED. But not all BO is the same. Gwyneth's is worth the extra $74, IMHO.

Perhaps - good point. However, I tend to think a square setup would be faster for the SS 1LE. (1) Manufacturers almost always set cars up for understeer, because it is safer. (2) Most front-engined...

I would get the 295/40/18 Falken RT660s, *if they were available.* They aren't. Neither are the Hankook RS4, which aren't as fast, but last a long time.
