Yes, Randy Pobst calls that the corvette flop :D. Not good for braking or corner entry. Stiffer front springs, sway bars, and more shock rebound in back will help.

Yeah, checking tire pressures and torquing lug nuts at the track is one thing. But a paying customer should not have to inspect and correct negligent brake installs from a pro shop. Come on guys,...

That's an interesting idea doing a simulator while exercising. Would definitely make the treadmill or stationary bike more fun! I'm sure it couldn't hurt. Here are a couple thoughts on the matter....

Now for the big event, the Sunday ST1 race. I had to start in the back since I missed qualifying. I had a very nice start and after one lap moved up 3 positions. Then it was a battle after a full...

I try to avoid these threads because they tend to pop up every year or two and it's always the same thing. Everyone simply claims the guy they take their car to is the "best". That's natural. As most...

Not sure if this thread is serious or a troll, but if it's real then I would stop with the mods. That cage would be a big mistake and so would the supercharger and aero. If you want a rollbar I would...

Yes karting is a great way to learn this. Probably the best way, but it will still be hard to transfer what you do in a kart to a corvette. I know what you're going through because I only started...

Laguna Seca is right off the Pacific coast. It's pretty much in the 60's there everyday. A cold day would be 50's. Tire temps won't be an excuse.
