Arrow The Forum Wars: Season 2. Represent Camaro5!! (Eric@Torq Chosen)

Talk is cheap if you can’t bring it behind the wheel. You’ve seen the episodes of The Forum Wars presented by Royal Purple, and you’ve thought, “I could do better than that!” Here’s your chance, as recruiting is set to begin for The Forum Wars Season 2.

Link to the two races involving Camaro5 members from season 1:
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=88077
http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=71140

Would you like to represent Camaro5 on the track in your modified or tuner SS Camaro? Are you willing and able to competitively run a ¼ mile drag race, autocross style road course and a 0-100-0 competition against a big horsepower Dodge Challenger from ChallengerTalk? We want you to compete on The Forum Wars Season 2 that will be filmed in Houston, Texas at the Royal Purple Raceway the weekend of Jan. 8, 2011.

Racers and fans of the inaugural season of The Forum Wars will experience better competition as the new season will include:

· ¼ mile NHRA drag strip
· Improved road course design
· 0-100-0 racing
· Cars and drivers nominated and approved by the forums
· Additional track time for the drivers
· More evenly matched vehicles with similar mods and tires

This season’s eight (8) episode series will be promoted on national television, SPEED, and posted and promoted all over the internet. To sweeten the deal, prizes will be awarded to participants from Royal Purple, Magnaflow Exhaust, Eibach Springs, Mothers Polish and more.

If you want to represent your forum on The Forum Wars Season 2, please reply to this post. Or, if you would like to nominate a Camaro5 member, you can submit his or her name.

We are looking forward to an improved and incredible season with a great day of competition and fun at the track! Don’t wait to nominate! Nominations will close December 20th.

Just so people aren't confused or are wondering where the track you are speaking of is.....Aug. 17th of this year, HRP (Houston Raceway Park) announced that it will be renamed Royal Purple Raceway at the start of 2011.

I volunteer to take my car to a tuner and have them upgrade it (sponsorship-style) and race the absolute piss out of it and guarantee a win. Here's the deal: give me about 550rwhp, some suspension tweaks and maybe some bigger brakes and I will win and give you a substantial boost in sales; if I lose, I'll pay for the upgrades. I'm all for whoring my car out with logos and decals on TV.

I'll just go ahead and nominate myself!

A quick spec sheet:

2010 Camaro SS
Heads, cam, exhaust etc (489rwhp/454rwtq)

Full Pfadt Racing Suspension (Coil-overs and pretty much everything else)
Brembo Big Brake Kit

The car has been driven and raced in Kentucky, Georgia, Arizona and many more places and actually done quite well. Won several SCCA Auto-x events, and has lapped Sebring, Daytona, Moroso and Homestead 100's of times.

A few shots!

We have to agree. Torq will do an amazing job to represent. Just look at all of their accomplishments so far with the 5Th gen Camaro. Who else will drive days to get to a Camaro-specific event, be a professional, win events, and then drive days home?

Torq gets our nomination.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for your responses! Both Erik@Torque and Camaro21 are perfect candidates. I'd like to give it a few more days before we make a selection. What's important is that whoever is selected has the full backing of Camaro5. I'd also like to make sure that the car is fairly matched with the Challenger we find. Keep submitting other cars/drivers as well.
Paul

I nominate speedster..... (would that be cheating?)

...if he's willing and his car is shooting straight by then.

I'll go ahead and nominate myself, course I only have a 91 convertible and I'm trying to get in with my Challenger. The way I see it is if I get both in I'll be sure to win this way LOL. Think I have a chance?

Who ever gets in from both sides is bound to have fun and I'm happy that were getting matched up. These are very nice American muscle cars and it should be a great episode!!

Who will represent C5 this round?:iono

I think someone local to the location should do it, but Torq looks like a ringer!
