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.

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.
