    4 Wheeled Toy Followed Me Home


    So this followed me home last week. Who the hell let me go work for a car dealership???

    It's a 2015 Camaro SS with the 1LE Track Package. Z-28 suspension, ground effects, wheels, rear end and half shafts. Brembo calipers and rotors. Tremac close range 6-speed, with short throw shifter. Suede steering wheel, shift knob, and Suede, power Recaro race seats. It came in with only 2400 miles on the clock.

    Fine by me. It was an opportunity that I couldn't pass up (admittedly, I didn't try all that hard). I stole the car, paying was less than even it's trade value. Plus, it's given me a reason to clean out and organize my garage.

    My thoughts exactly. Palmer, Lime Rock, NJMP, Thompson... Hell, I'd love to run NHMS in a car. Although I think it'd be a bit boring in a car vs a bike. But I'm already concerned about ripping off the front, lower lip on the transition of T10, when the suspension compresses.

    But then again... FUCK! Car tires are expensive! $400 buys you a set of tires for a bike, that last for a couple race weekends and a couple track days... $400 buys you ONE tire for the car, and you spank all 4 of them at a track day!

    Lol. You'll get a few track days out of a set unless you like leaving darkies everywhere.

    You'll hate that car at Loudon. Palmer and Club Motorsports where you can stretch it's legs a little ate the way to go.

    Oh, and now you can add Watkins Glen into the mix.

    That's a cool ride. Stock exhaust?

    My boss has been doing track days in his GTS. I'm surprised by how little wear the tires seem to be going though, maybe not driving it hard enough??

    Yes, stock exhaust. But it got the dual-mode exhaust option from the factory. So it shakes the whole house when I start it in the garage, and it barks like hell when you romp on the throttle.

    It's possible to drive this thing without leaving darkies everywhere?

    High HP teaches patience, lol.

    Sometimes you just got to light 'em up and put on a nice drift show though, especially when giving rides.


    I had the pleasure of taking a few laps in a 460hp Vette at Palmer last weekend. You're going to love that car there!

    Just don't ask him to drive it behind a Jeep that went mudding and hasn't been washed yet!

    I'm going to find that fucking asshole. He got on and off the highway within a couple exits, so he's local. I'm going to introduce myself as the driver of the loud, black, Camaro that went ripping past his shitty Jeep, inform him of his stupidity, stab two of his expensive tires, and then inform him that we are even.
