The Story

I purchased this as an upgrade to my Z28 in 2001. After a few years in stock trim I began modifying it for power and handling. A motor swap in 2011 was the biggest change and since then the focus has been on improving it's on-track behavior. I frequent Northern California's 3 nearby road courses and take it out on the weekends for drives up California's beautiful coast line.

Awesome vette brother! I am located in northern california as well and have been wanting to get into the track days. Are you a member of a track club?

[]Andrew Johnson 1 point

Thanks! I have run with NCRC and Track Masters, and track days with Hooked on Driving. All good groups depending on what you're wanting to get into - competitive time trials or seat time track days. HOD is great because they have instructors there and focus on building good habits and learning your limits safely, I'd recommend starting there. They always have a full event schedule at the 3 local Nor Cal tracks, check em out! https://www.hookedondriving.com/hooked-on-driving-region/California

30ish. It's my favorite course. The surface is smooth, the turns have a rhythm and the facilities are excellent. So many places to spectate and to top it off its set in the hills of Monterey which are beautiful.

Thanks, Jenner. I'm jonesing for the next step of gutting the suspension and adding coilovers to get the handling properly sorted.
