mattw said:Had mine at VIR 3 times. You will need good pads and good fluid. After the first 2 events my stock front rotors had a bunch of heat checks in them (I do tend to overdrive). I replaced them with C5 rotors from rockauto.com. 4 front rotors and 2 caliper brackets for about 140 bucks.
For the third event I got a set of Z06 rear rims, a spare set of stock front rims and put Hoosiers on them. The car is pretty awesome as is, though it is a tad weaker, heavier and softer than the C5 Z06. The stock oil cooler appears not to be up to the task, I hit 300 degrees a couple of times at VIR this weekend. The stock seats, while comfortable, are utterly inadequate for holding you in place. My next mods will likely be a more stout oil cooler, a harness bar with harness and a seat.
Well, what did you learn over July 9 and 10? Any news?JoeS said:We have a club member that Auto-X'd (6 events) and Drag (4 events) over the Memorial weekend (got the C6 in April). He did VERY WELL in class.
He has a lot of experience in both Auto-X and Drag. He had an '03 (I think) Z06 before the C6 and is very pleased with the C6 in comparison.
I'll see how he does over the weekend of July 9th & 10th - we have 11 Auto-X events set for that weekend.
P.S. I was one of the ones that he beat (he was usually 2nd each event and I was 3rd out of 6). My only redemption - that was my 1st attempt at an NCCC weekend event.
