Car looks great! I admire the hard work that went into it
Well, Junior1 ran the car until about 2016, after that he had to park the car due to things in his personal life. However, he still took great care of it by running it every so often. I was talking to him via Facebook in an ATS-V group back in 2021 (we both have owned ATS-V's) and he mentioned he had some spare parts he was needing to sell, as well as the car. So, we started talking about the car and a week later I was driving to New York to pick it up. I then sold my other CTS-V track car.At the very least it would be interesting to hear what you know of the history of the car since this thread died off 8 years ago. And do you have any leftover carbon fiber bits you want to part with?
So, when I planned on doing the AP Racing setup, I was talking to them back in August of '21, and explaining the similarity of braking components for V1s, V2s, and 5th gen Camaros. They did not offer a single Cadillac kit at the time, but I told them their 5th gen Camaro kit should bolt right up to a V2 with no modification, and a V1 with minor modification. I bought a used 5th gen kit from a friend, just in case it did not work out I was only out a few thousand dollars, instead of six thousand. However, with the engine failure, I did not get around to installing it until September of '22. The only modifications needed (as predicted) was enlarging the spindle mounting holes to accept the M14 bolts for the 5th gen/V2 setup, and increasing the hub bore of the rotors from 66.9 mm to 70.3 mm to fit my C5/C6 Corvette SKF Race Hubs.Thanks for the update! Is the AP Racing setup you're using this kit for the V2 - AP Racing by Essex Radi-CAL Competition Brake Kit (Front 9668/372mm)- Cadillac CTS-V 2009-2015 (V2) | Essex Parts Services, Inc. - or some other setup?
What wing are you running?
I have another car sitting in my driveway that is supposed to become the dedicated track car, so I really don't need to be thinking about CF parts for my CTS-V. Couldn't help but ask, though!
