I burned through half a set of pads on my ZR1 in two days at the track, then I pulled them and sold them. Unfortunately I didn't keep them on long enough to determine how long the rotors would last.

I'm going to take the rear fascia off my 2019 GS this weekend and see if the holes are there already to accept the ZR1 wing brace. I can't believe they wouldn't be on a 2019.

I believe it's the other way around. Loosen the front bolts so the wing can pivot but you need to remove the rear bolts then raise or lower the wing. There are two fixed positions so it's not truly...

I counted and this was the 6th time I've replaced the soft lines on a C7 and it was the first time I've had a problem. This one has been a real bugger though.

The hard line was leaking. I cross threaded the RR hard line so I just replaced it. Then it was leaking where the new and old hard lines connect. All self inflicted.

I think technically that is correct and it's why you tend to see larger diameter rear tires on purpose built racecars. The issue is simply will it fit without tearing up the car. I ran 680 diameter...

Sorry, yes I meant UCA. I'm finding Pirelli scrubs to last me about the same as new Hoosiers and I've gotten them for as little as $100/tire plus shipping by the pallet.

I ran 315/680-18 Pirellis on 18x13 rear wheels without issue with the tires. The rim width is an issue with hitting the LCA.
