You took that last picture as an open invitation for a cheap shop, didn't you? ?Nice...it also seems to have off road capability also... ?
Thanks for the info! Sounds like how I used to plan my trips to the drag strip. I would wait until my tires were needing to be replaced, then go to the track.Tires were pretty well at the end of life before I got there... Drove home on them in the rain and didn't die haha
One of the reasons I'm sure the truck was sketch is the tires were pretty well wrecked on the street their entire life. With a set of tires I hadn't ruined with heat cycling on the street I'm confident the sketch factor would have dropped from 7/10 to 3 or 4/10.
I should have another set of tires on the way if the company I ordered them from isn't jerking me around, But I will save up a bit more and do some searching for another set of wheels to keep a fresh set for future track excursions.
The Z06 brakes seemed to hold up great. They actually worked better once warmed up and I didn't see a ton of brake dust on my wheels, but I haven't looked closely after the event was over.
It was an open track event with less than 20 cars, so it was pretty much a come and go as you please situation. i didn't record or pay attention to my time out there. I was just out having fun tearing it up. Looking at my trip distances based on my fuel ups I put about 100 miles down on the track.
Most tracks have open track days where you pay a fee and get to hot lap all day long if you want. High Plains near me does it about once a month. Go to the track's web site and they usually have a schedule posted.Thanks for the info! Sounds like how I used to plan my trips to the drag strip.

The reason I asked is when I lived in Georgia, one of my dreams was to drive at Road Atlanta. I go back to Georgia every now and then, and would still love to give it a try one day. Kudos for driving your Blazer on a race track!
