At the track now running 13.6, not very happy. 54 degrees, 689 miles. Maybe it needs to be broken in more.

Re: Some photos after Zaino

I believe so too from what other owners have posted. They seem to get faster in the 1500-2500 mile range

I hope so. I'll have to take her back when I get some more miles on it. I did 8 runs, most of them at 13.8 and 2 at 13.6, tried sport mode, track mode, auto, shifting, didn't see much of a difference. My best 0-60 is still 4.6 which was on the street.

Don't give up. It should run stronger over time.
A 4.6 sec 0-60 is showing good take offs and 1st to 2nd gear changes.

Did you happen to compare your EVIC with the track times?

It was pretty much dead on like everyone else has suggested. I think the only thing with the EVIC times is you need to make sure you are on completely flat pavement. A slight decline or incline may not be noticeable to the untrained eye but can make some difference in your times.

Re: Some photos after Zaino

After a completely touch-less wash, wheels were still a bit dirty though:

Re: Some photos after Zaino

How many coats did you put on and which products? I put two coats of Z2 this past weekend and it looks/feels pretty good.

Claybar
1 coat of Z5 ZFX
1 coat of Z2 ZFX

Even though its brand new and there arent very many scratches or swirls to remove, the Z5 is good for giving it a deeper wet look. If I had more time I probably would of done another coat of Z2.

Re: Some photos after Zaino

Wait until you get to 10 coats the red will become even better, when you get to 10+ coats of Zaino and you find another red one you color will look 100x's better.

Looks awesome btw that first shot looks like its waiting to pounce on some unexpecting prey.
