Hey Nic, it seems I see the Cordes guys down in Tucson more than Firebird. Besides private rental, is that track any better? I've never been, maybe when it cools off I'll give it a try.

Not sure how I did it but I broke 2 pins in my IW 8 rib. I had a thread on the Corvette forum trying to figure out what happened. Only 635whp on a stock Ls1 with an A&A kit.
