Definitely would like an oil change for the way out. Wish I did that last time.

I just changed my brake pads (all four corners) and replaced my front rotors and bled the brakes and changed the clutch fluid.
I cracked my front rotors at Willow Springs last Saturday, my left front pretty badly. I checked my ACI brake cooling ducts just to make sure air is flowing through them (they're ok).
Check out the pics of my cracked rotor:



This weekend I'll get my new front tires mounted and bed in my brakes and heat cycle the front tires.
See you guys at Spring Mountain!

Had it at the shop tonight for the new design Pfadt coilovers, and brakes/pads all the way around. Sunday at the shop is fluids, a final ride height adjustment, Monday is the 4 wheel alignment. Fun fun!

YES!!! We can definitely work something out for you. Need to do it fairly early on Sunday afternoon (prior to 4 PM). Victor will get together with you to make sure that everything is checked out for your return drive.

The lift is in the new Corvette building in the lower paddock where all the activities will be taking place.

Sorry I have been out of Internet contact for the last 2 days. I built mine from an old tripod head, a 1/2" bolt, and a blast mount(just a heavy duty 1 3/4 clamp) that I picked up at the local race shop. Got about $15 invested in it. You know me hell for Strong and pinch every penny tell it screams. I mounted it on the diagonal at eye level, about even with the seat. But its totally adjustable and can be mounted any where on the chassis bar.

4/32 to 5/32 tread depth on the rear tires. Will be getting a new set tomorrow. I hate buying tires. I only had this set for seven months.


I am very ready to do this

I know what you mean. I'm replacing my front tires after 6 track days to make sure I have enough rubber for Spring Mountain (probably would hit cords on Saturday). I'm not sure about the back tires since I only have 5 days on them and I hate to replace them too soon! I think I'll try to stretch the back tires for two more days.
Roy.

EDIT: Nope, can't stretch the rear tires for another weekend. I checked them and there is cord showing on both rear tires. Ugh. New tires for me tomorrow.

I thought about trying to stretch this set, but to much rides on the tires. I will be very far from home too. I will have a back up set now after I wear out these new one's.

My car is ready and so am I.

I can't wait.
