ZL1 feels great

Had the car for a week and just did 500 miles oil change, adjusted to track alignment. Start to push the car a little bit, lateral 0.9G on highway on-ramp didn't really feel a thing.

I am gonna enjoy daily driving and tracking this car so much!

Cosworth is awesome and so is this car. Definitely get it out on the track. That's really the only place where you can push it and see how great it really is. Enjoy!

Track prep guide says 28 cold for ZL1, 26 cold for ZL1 1LE.

just as the GM track document states...start at 28psi on all 4 wheels. Sometimes I start at 27.5psi rear and 28psi front. This is on the first session of the day. Because track temps increase during the day, you may find yourself dropping a bit more.
