Congratulations on the successful 40% power upgrade and the return to the ring! I'm so glad to read and watch that you got the leak squared away and can now put the beast to work. What a great photo!

Obviously unique for a car to intentionally jump with no damage...this track works the suspension! Only other place I've been that does something similar is Cadwell Park in UK...they have one roller hill that is quite famous - but much slower speeds and under acceleration.
Flugplatz?



As far as I can tell you are indeed airborne!

Thanks gents. It is impressive how well engineered the Chevrolet is - accommodating +200 CHP and still making me look like I know what I'm doing. My left leg is still sore from jamming against the dead pedal something fierce holding on for dear life. :-) I checked the PDR and it was showing traction control engaging on nearly every corner exit - Sport 2 setting...hmmm.

Ted: Appreciate the coordination on the tune. I'll be back for a another tweak in the fall with some 'efficiency' updates to the car.

An external view with 3 appearances - a bit of a yawn (even at 125 mph):

gump: Thanks and I agree on all levels! Glad the Ring is still available...

Pulled the PDR video of that run...you can see how sloppy I am with everything from lines to shift points. At least I didn't miss a shift this go!

Always love watching PDR videos.

To what extent, if any, did the installation of the supercharger upset the exceptional chassis/handling dynamics of your 1LE? I ask because I've entertained the idea of installing a Magnacharger 2300 on my 1LE.

DC5: I don't know...yet? My videos ought to spell out that I'm not a professional driver.

I could still feel the car understeering and oversteering, but that was expected when I failed to slow for a corner entry properly or went WOT too early. It 4-wheel drifted thru corners similar to pre-blower.

I attempted to measure the car height after the install and darn couldn't really tell a difference (possibly 1/8 lower in the front).

I have plans to have it corner weighted again to see the weight increase in the near future.

Honestly, I doubt I will ever notice a difference with the weight add...maybe an autocross it would be more of impact.

I recommend it!

My 1LE is a garage/street queen, so it sounds like I won't notice any meaningful difference. Thanks for your response.

Absolutely love the in cabin camera angle in your Ring video. You get to see the view ahead and also shift. Adds to the theater of the whole thing!

You probably need a set of wider/stickier tires to handle the extra power. You should definitely hit up Apex Race Parts to see if they can provide a square set up with more rubber.

An alternative option is to simply get a Manual ZL1 1LE and call it a day. Comes with all the track adjusability you could ever want and Aero is included :-)

Prices in the US for a ZL1 1LE have tanked and it's a great time to get one.

Checkmate1: ZL1 1LE...never thought of that! j/k. I like to tinker with cars, dislike the width of the front 305 tire, and likely my SS has a higher topspeed (and better mileage) due to gearing. Of course, the purchase price is significant challenge too.

I do agree on the camera angle - hard to express how lumpy/elevation change the track has until you see someone bouncing in the seat. Of course, most of the views are my own...;-)
