    It's hard but I'm making sure to follow break in procedure

    I've got (3) more heat cycles to do !!


    Yesterday I let my mechanic friend take the Camaro around the block so he could bed the brakes in and check for noises or issues . This was the first time I've heard my Camaro from this perspective and it sounds so friggin wicked

    As he was heading back to his shop I could definitely hear it and tell it had a manual valve body . And hearing it idling then pulling into his place from the street sounds like a race car

    That's going to be the hardest part when I get mine out the first time. To heat cycle the diff and bed in the brakes while doing shakedown runs around the block.

    Awesome, Chuck. Wished you still lived closer to me. Would have liked to see your new build.
