With the wagon revitalized we headed back to our El Toro test track. After a few warm-up laps we were rewarded with a best slalom time of 6.24 seconds or 46.3 mph. This was a huge improvement over the previous tests, especially considering the Chevelle was set in cruiser mode and not in “kill” autocross mode. Moreover the wagon’s crazy body roll was now under control and the tighter steering made the Chevy easier to weave through the cones. In the braking test we saw an even more impressive improvement with a 126-foot 60-0 stopping distance. Knocking over 28 feet off the distance is huge, and, best of all, this performance was repeatable while the stock brakes were mush after only two or three hard hits.
