    Joel this is Jeff Lyman Mad Dog on CF. My shop is in N. Syracuse. Hope your getting to enjoy you Z06. As you may of heard these cars have a cooling issue when pushed hard especially at the tracks. We developed CNC'd heat sink fins that attach to the oil \water cooler with thermal conductive adhesive. We have to buy the adhesive in large quality so I am contacting a few to see the interest in selling the fins as a kit. The price would be $ 350.00 for fins, adhesive and applicator the install time on a lift would be a half an hour.
    We are just back again from Watkins Glen testing them with great success! The last test it was 90 hot and humid we ran many 2:10 second lap times for a half an hour. Hottest coolant temp was 225 and oil 273. Let me know if your interested we could do the install here at the shop for you for $ 100.00. I will be posting more info on CF
    soon. Jeff 315-458-0836 office.

    "It is amazing how emotionally passionate the "Z07 or not Z07, that is the question" has become. Who would of thought a performance/track package would become such an emotional issue?"

    In fairness to the group, this is only an emotional issue for Glenn. Others certainly have strong opinions, but then this is CF.

    He had a little meltdown last weekend on this thread (Z07 as a daily driver? not so fast!) for reason I still don't understand.

    So his response is that he now has the secret information-but not everyone gets it- which I assume corrects the info posted by the OP in the above thread. Gotta punish the people he couldn't shout down.

    It's amazing this kind of childishness is being indulged by anyone.

    Thank you for you message. I appreciate your taking the time to assist me.

    I am pleasantly surprised you have 11,000 miles on them. That is actually rather acceptable considering they are not far from being a race tire!

    Do your cup tires throw stones up against the car? What car do you have them on?

    I do have the original pilot Sport Cup tires on the car. It now has almost 11,000 miles on it. I am a little surprised that they appear to have little wear ? Of course, there is not much tread to compare (a few small holes). They are really like racing slicks. I have not tracked the car and only occasionally drive her hard on curvey rodes. Have not tried to spin the back tires off the line. So, I guess I drive them about as easy as possible. The only other Michelin option would give up dry traction for longer life.

    I do not drive this car in the rain. Not because of the tires, but I do not want to dirty up the undercarriage. Here in S. Cal. I can get away with thay and still drive it regularly.

    I love the car and the tire grip/feel on dry surfaces. They are noisy on concrete roads and large cracks in concrete will pull the car. So, there are some wierd idiosyncracies with these tires. Tire life (especially for the cost) is not great.
