2018 z07

I have a different suggestion

My suggestion is to make sure you have the break in miles and take your car to a HPDE day. You really do not know what the car is capable of until you drive it on a track. You might find you want...

There is a way

There is a way to track where the draw is. Years ago I was a factory service rep and I knew these things but I can’t recall.

Why wouldn't they?

You modified the car and standard automotive service equipment will not work. So they have an opportunity to damage the car, they declined taking the risk.

PDR start and finish line

I know I correctly recorded a start finish line and the Cosworth software is recording the session as one long lap. What am I doing wrong?
Any help is appreciated.
