  • Track Day Prep: New Brake Rotors

    Posted on February 25th, 2014 tcorzett No comments

    People always wonder why I have dirty wheels… Maybe it’s because the G8 is my daily driver and I don’t detail my car every time I park? Or maybe it’s because I’m running a track capable brake pad that is very aggressive for the street?

    Well, I’m leaning towards the latter, since I need to replace my front brake rotors… because they are no longer slotted. What? Yeah… I’ve removed enough material from the rotors that the slots are no longer there!

    I’ve also used-up a set of front brake pads in the last year, so they needed to be replaced as well… I guess track days take their toll on these sorts of components! So in preparation for the coming year, and hopefully a few track days, I brought the G8 into Synergy Motorsports to get things replaced and for general service.

    As always they took good care of the G8 and got me back on the road quickly. They were even able to service the transmission, which required converting to a Camaro filter/pan.

  • Five Years… Still Running Strong!

    Today marks the fifth year that I’ve owned my G8 and the odometer is approaching 63,300 miles. So much has happened in my life over that time, and while it all hasn’t revolved around the G8… the vast majority has. It is impossible to pick-out a favorite moment, but I know I’ll never be able to forget all of the friends I’ve made… and those we’ve lost.
