Thumbs up Track day with my R/T

Signed up for a track day with my Camaro but I couldn't get the brakes done in time so I ran my R/T. I was surprised how good it did. Hit 105 mph limiter down the main straight. Brakes never be out and passed a lot of cars.

NICE! Ha! A ram passing sports cars. The cars' owners must have been like "What the hell?"

Thanks for sharing that.

I was at Thunderhill Raceway just north of Sacramento. I had a ton of people coming up to me and asked me what I did to the truck. My truck is bone stock.
In my first session I let a lot of cars pass me because I wasn't sure how I would do in the corners. I knew in the straights my truck could pass a bunch of cars. When I was keeping up with these guys in the corners they started waving me by. I had a guy in an RX7 FD spin right in front of me. I am glad he went off track because I could have hurt him by if we hit each other.
I think with better tires, shocks and stiffer springs this truck could really haul ass

Just a 2/4 drop kit and shocks makes a huge difference in handling...

Wow do you like the 4:10 gears? Overall, how does it perform? I'm considering a gear swap from 3:55 to 4:10.

Thats AWESOME! I've done several track days on my motorcycle but never in a car. We had a Roush 427R Mustang for almost 5 years, I always threatened to take it to the track but never made it.

Pretty cool! I figured with the 4:10 rear end and 22" wheels the R/T would do well on the track, but I was not sure about cornering with the weight. Good to know if I get on a twisty with a sports car.
