It kinda pissed me off that they used the 1LE in a competition with $100k cars.

i was also annoyed but i was impressed with it's results. for a base model V8, it lapped quicker than a vantage and f-type. pretty insane in my book! the z28 in the 2014 event ran the lap one second slower, and it was a hand built 427 with f1-style suspension. it's .12 seconds slower than the purpose built M4 track car with gutted interior and special air/water injection system, and was .70 seconds behind the latest Godzilla offering, and it's only 1.6 seconds slower than Ford's purpose built track mustang with a multi-million dollar engineered flat-plane crank in a lightweight chassis with carbon fiber wheels. we still havent seen the ZL1 in tester's hands, but it should be out late 2017/early 2018, and we all know the Z28 will be coming out in 2019. if the base model Camaros are already punching this well above their price tag, then the top of the lines will slaughter.

Yeah, I think they just had it as a contender because of it's amazing price to performance. Which I understand, but to someone who's not familiar with Camaros. It makes them look bad.

I think it's a combination of it's great performance to price, and because Chevy/GM havent done much marketing with the car. a lot of people don't know about it or know what it does. so instead of rushing to throw a ZL1 that isn't "polished" their way, they went with a also new, sort've unknown product that was ready to go.

Oh well, we'll just have to wait for the ZL1. Also the 50th anniversary is coming up, in the fall. Curious to see what will come of that.

the 50th anniversary deal is just an appearance package. the option is already live on their "build your own" section of thee chevy website. only notable features are brembo calipers in all four corners.

I was kinda hoping for a special performance pack. Sorta like what Pontiac did for a last hoorah.

I was too. I guess they feel the 1LE pack, ZL1, and Z28 are already special enough and didnt want to do any other motor/transmission/chassis stuff for the 50th.

alright folks. i got all the goodies thrown on the car yesterday, took it down the street for gas, stopped back by the garage to jacked it up and made sure everything was still nice and tight. after letting the shocks settle last night, i took it out for some testing today and holy shit does it feel 100x better. the rear end is tighter, stiffer, and has less give. from a dead stop with traction control off, it leaves in a straight line, chirping tire as it goes, screaming like a banshee. it's amazing. i'm in love all over again.

Not entirely sure but we found it in the trunk of the supercoupe so im assuming it came off that. Snout looks a little longer than the one thats already on there though

Are the older Celicas easy(ish) to work on? Are parts easy to find/are they cheap? The reason I'm asking is because I'm not finding any cheap Lexus's around here(CO). Plus I've never dealt with non German cars.

Here's the CL ad if needed. Not a lot of info on it.

Parts are cheap for sure. Most likely easy to work on, like any other Toyota. Compared to a German car it would be a cake walk to fix.

Need some advice, I want to keep my s10, but I want a bigger truck. Someone has offered me a bigger truck. I kind of like the gas mileage of my s10. I hardly drive it very much even though its my daily. Gas mileage is not a problem. I would like to save money to buy a bigger truck, but there is no room at this house, (we have five vehicles here now.) Wat do?

Keep it, save your money for a bigger truck. Once you have the money, sell your S10 and buy the new truck.

That works, thanks man. I also have a weird situation going on right now aswell. I had a miata I had to get rid of for my job. I lost the title and I signed the power of authority to the car dealer. I move back to my home town and get my s10 to find out the car is still titled in my name. The dealer couldn't get it out of my name or didn't want to. I have been looking that car since and have gotten a few replies of cars that are close but are not it.

There is a sensor in the brake fluid reservoir that lets you know if you are low on brake fluid. Go get a bottle of DOT 3 brake fluid and add to the (Full) line on the side of the reservoir. The warning light should turn off almost immediately. Here is a pic of where the reservoir is located.

So my 63 buick which is a 4200lb+ car and has 4 wheel drum brakes keeps stopping from 60mph in under 150 to 130 feet doing my best not to lock up the tires and this is on a slightly downhill road. thats pretty damn good I think

My 2015 Mustang (albeit without the performance package) manages around ~117ft; that's for a ~3,600lb car with disc brakes. 130-150ft with drums at 4200lbs is pretty remarkable.

I would like to see what it would do on a nice flat road and just slam on the brakes and see what happens, I have never gotten the front brakes to lock up just the rears and it's usually just one wheel that does it. They are manual drum brakes but it doesn't actually take that much effort to stop the car. I also have a 03 buick park avenue ultra with 4 wheel discs and if I remember right road tests had it right around 130 feet for stopping. so damn

The fact that I'm not pulling a trailer and therefore don't have to obey trailer speed limits?

Uhhh... ok, then maybe the fact that my car can move on its own and doesn't have to be carried around on a trailer.
