Anyone plan on going out and playing? I've got my Camaro fixed... AGAIN, and probably temporarily :D
Figure I'd try to get it down the track at least one more time this year to see if it's worth keeping it the way it is.

Dang, close! Not bad for a 100% stock engine :)

Dang right it scoots, kinda shocked some people at the track :) Can't wait for next season, I'm done for the year, need tires, BAD. These MT DR's are about 4, maybe 5 years old (freebie from a friend). Very bald, and very hard. My junkard posi was also being a pain, it spins both for the burnout (did a good one for the photographer in my fast run, he was standing in my lane take shot after shot), but if I left on anything more than 30% throttle, it spun 1, usually for half the track almost before I could get it back again.
It's got 11's in it still, needs a tune (my tune is VERY rough, it's too lean, needs some serious work), with some traction and a tune it'll go mid-11's I'm sure. Well heck, 11's how it is, I ran a 1.6x 60' that day, that 12.0 pass was a 1.9. It's got serious potential once I get the bugs ironed out.
And to think I was trying to part it out and sell the thing, glad I kept it!

Nice work that thing is quick did u end up with a 3600 stall in it?

I'm running a 3200 stall actually, probably should be closer to 2800-3000, but we'll see. I only tried building boost on the line once, and it did a half-track burnout as a result, so I'm not actually sure what it'll do when it launches hard. Might just blow through the converter.

Some pictures from Woodburn they had on their facebook page. The last one is when I tried leaving on boost, need a lot more traction, haha
And since I'm posting pics, some from PIR when it had the g-force T5 in it and the other engine.
