I've seen that 1000hp Nickey car go down the track many times...and man oh man does it *hate* tires! Wheel spin on demand doesn't even begin to describe that thing...all seems well, then the boost hits, and it's Katy bar the door!

I know you all have a choice and I know there are plenty of shops that want your business. We have a 60-plus year track record from winning at Indy to 300 land speed records while owning Paxton Products and so on. We do not promote ourselves very well in that department...That needs to change. I read about other "big name" shops and all the hype...i wonder why Motor Trend forgets to include us in some of thier tuner wars but just go on my mary way. If you want inflated numbers and hype - we are probably not the right shop for that...if you want honest effort and great driveable power - we honor everyone business
With all respect you you and Granetelli, this is a thread about the Nickey Camaro. They too have a outstanding reputation with generations of experience for sure. I for one do not think it is appropriate in their thread, to make refereneces to "....If you want inflated numbers and hype - we are probably not the right shop for that." Make your own thread about how great you are and let people ask questions about you and your services. But this should not be done in a Nickey thread.

Just my thoughts

That is not true - The twin will spool even faster than the single - plus turbo lag is a thing of the past

The fastest 2010 Camaro at the Optima Challenge was riding on Pedders suspension -- the same suspension that is on the Nickey series of Camaros and what this thread is about.

Stefano,

What is the latest news from Nickey?

You could not be more wrong.

For those of you that were not there, the Pfadt car ran well, the Eibach car not as well as the Pfadt car. The Grannetelli car -- well he has his story and I have my suspicions as to why it wasn't on the track to compare to those 2010 Camaros that ran.

Any more thoughts you care to share with the group?

OK I agree - I forgot about the Pfadt car - I never saw the Eibach car - if it was there then you are right it never caught my radar. No need to be hostile This is just a friendly chat. If you were there then you know the ZR1 was honking his horn and flashing his light at Paul as he circled the track. My comment was not made to belittle your car. True our car had Granatelli Coil Overs so I can see why YOU would want to do a direct comparo. Additionally our 2010 (pictured) did in fact go on the track and you can see by the pictures it has the X designation after the 20 (as in 20X) because they felt I was a professional driver and therefore it would be unfair to let me compete for the cup. Same as your car since you chose to put Paul in the car. We exited as the K&N Infinity made it final lap and if you were there you will recall we caught him by turn 7 or 8 right before he yanked his rear end out on the track (oops)

After that – they deemed it too dark. Your car was very fast at 1 min 50sec and congratulations. But that was 8.5 seconds slower then the Red ZR1 that ran 1.41. Just to keep it all fair I did also drive the GTR R35 to a 1.53 so your car beat mine by 200+horsepower which translated to nearly 3 seconds faster per lap – Hell I was just happy to get under 2 minutes

No worries mate!

I read your posts, and was concerned that poeple could interpret what you said openly. We know the Nickely Camaro, and these guys are off the charts fantastic in all areas. I wanted to make sure that everyone knows that Nickey Camaro are as good as it gets!. thanks for responding and I know that you understand.

On a side note,

I look forward to the opportunity to put our Camaro to yours at the next Optima Challenge. Friendly, spirited competition is healthy. Nickey Camaro could not make it because of local committments. Maybe Nickey will be out there, get Pfadt out there, others are useless, and we can have a serious battle of the Camaros!! the Pedders Camaro will probably have 25k on it since it truly is a daily driver. Hi hp will not help at the Optima. So running twin turbos will be a negative. Just my thoughts.

Again, all done is the spirit of friendly competition

Stefano,

What is the latest news from Nickey?
Next week we will be Pedderizing the 2010 Yenko Camaro YS 10001 for Tom Clary the founder of Yenko.net and the only entity to be authorized by the Yenko family to use their name!

We are very honored and pleased that he chose Nickey and Pedders in order to help make his Camaro just the way he wants it as well as in the spirit of the Legendary Don Yenko himself.

I would think that Don could appreciate a Camaro that can find the fast way around a road race track as well as down the 1/4 mile too.

Please stop by and see us at the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals (MCACN.com) this November 21st and 22nd in Rosemont Illinois.

Lynn Yenko, one of Don's Daughters will be there to talk about the New 2010 Yenko as well as the vintage ones, along with the rest of our crew.

We will also have the Nickey Stage III FLP TT on display along will a bunch of other cool 5th Gen Super Camaros we built.

We are anxious to get the car home (Southern Missouri) and play it.

We cannot thank the staff at Nickey Chicago enough for their work on this project. We dropped off our new SS at their place, showed them a picture of our 1969 Yenko/SC 427 Camaro and they did the rest. transforming the 2010 into a late model twin of our '69.

Also, thanks in advance to Pedders for helping with the suspension.

How does this kit not melt the power steering resv? How do you change the plugs? Is this a 1 off customer kit or production?

Kinda off topic, Not trying to hi-jack this thread either, just need a question answered... Does Granatelli still own the Turbine powered Camaro? It was a 67-68 as I recall? The whole underside was an exhaust as wide as the car! Talk about heat build up! Is this car still around, does Granatelli still own it? Yes I remember the turbines at Indy, saw them in person! Is Vince still around? Always thought that this was an amazing and innovative automobile!

We still own the turbine 67 Indy car / we still own the 68 Turbine built by Collin Chapman of Lotus Race Cars. I think you are referring to my cousin who built a 81 Corvette with a Turbine engine for Herb Orliwitz. Herb sold the car to Reggie Jackson who then sold it to Dick Clark. Now I have no idea who owns it. We never did build a Turbine Camaro - However, I drove a twin turbo Camaro in 1982 which ran at El Mirage - 229 mph and Bonneville at 269 and then drove the car home and to school everyday for the rest of the year. We still own the car and still drive it every once in a while - it still has a cell phone in it and the A/c blows cold.

There are 2 Vinces - Vince my Cousin and Vince my uncle brother to Andy

I was born in 67 and I know of no 68 Turbine Camaro

Brother to Andy. Maybe Andy built it? Ive got a old, old, HotRod or CarCraft with the turbine Camaro in it. Thought it was Vince that built it, although thinking back, it may have been Andy who built the car but it was an AMAZING car! Just was wondering what ever happened to it? Im sure one of them built it, Im old not senile , now all Ive got to do is find that damn magazine with it in it. (LOL)

DEI Turbo blankets...It is not a one off, but will not be offered as a kit either. Nickey customers will be able to add it as an option to their Stage II and Stage III packages. Plug access is easy, all of them can be easily changed from the bottom of the car with no issues what so ever.

I am assuming you mean this one, our 2010 Yenko/SC 427 Camaro.

Z0-6 Vette Wegner Motorsports engine, RPM higher stall convertor & reworked auto trans, HD axles, and getting Pedderized as we speak. That will include Pedders "drag package", coil overs, new busings, drag race alignment, etc.

All of the cosmetics and much of the other installation work was done by the crew at Nickey Chicago.

The car should be done this week, then to Alton, MO to enjoy.
