Default LS3 cruises down a mountain road. {VIDEO}

I stuck the video camera on my windshield the other day on the way home from the the mountain house. They got 2 feet of snow up there last week, but the roads were pretty clear. About half way down the mountain, the roads cleared up nicely!!
Enjoy,
JB

Question

Nice vid but umm, is the mountain house in England?

What's with the 'opposite side of the road' thing?

When I mount the camera with the suction cup to the windshield, it's upside down. When I edit the video, and rotate it 180 degrees, it does some weird ****...

That's what I was figuring but I kept scrutinizing the scenery and just couldn't calculate how it ended up that way LOL.

Neat video! Looks like some fun road to play. No place here in the Houston area to have fun like that.

I'll have to try a couple of these. The closest is the FM 1468 Sweepers from Patterson to Wallis. Nice little Sunday afternoon drive. Says to watch out for cops.

Thanks for the links!

I have Dynatech 1 &7/8, Vararam, ported TB and intake, Borla Touring exhaust, and an expert dyno tune with a 91/Torco mix (95 octane).

I have not been on the dyno since the 410s, so I'm probably down just a bit, but it sure is snappy!!

I went from the Z51, to the Hotchkis, to the T-1 on my 98. The T-1 really leveled the car out! Well worth the $! I now have coilovers as well, and the car handles VERY well!!
