Bumping to the top...
Any more takers? Groups are full Sat, but still shows some availability on Sunday.
Forecast is low 90s. Hoping for something a little lower, but it could certainly be worse!

At least Verstappen kept it somewhat interesting.
IF the cars weren't so wide, it would make passes easier. And if the tires were narrower, tire management might be a bigger challenge than it is....

Nice job!
Standard pinion bearing protocol calls for a wee bit of preload. The solid spacer sure makes life a lot easier.

Since you already have the trans out, the hard work is done!
I don't know for sure, but I'd expect the 427 convertible to use the same driveline as the Z06.

But that suns it up.
Could it even be possible?

Holy crap that's quiet. (most of the events...) I don't even know if i'd bother.... I already pass on the 90Db events at Laguna, and it's only an hour from home.

What is the limit?
Laguna days vary... last year was 91 most days, now some are 90.
My mostly stock C6Z was <91 with turndowns and the flaps closed, 94.5 with the flaps open (ooops).

Anyone else going?
I'll be in a silver C6Z, probably #92. First time out in a year, first time there with this car.
