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.

...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!!

I will also have to say Erik @ Torq. His ride is superbly dialed in. There is NO point in going fast is can't turn... His car turns!!!

Who will represent C5 this round?:iono

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.
I would like to put my name in the bucket

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!









You've got my vote! I've seen you drive.

I second this. It's up to the forum majority though.

BMR Suspension

I'll be glad to do it. The BMR mule car has 650 RWHP and has run high 10s in the quarter mile. The car has a Magnuson supercharger, Kooks headers, Magnaflow exhaust, and internal engine work.

Of course, the car has a full BMR suspension including many test parts that are not yet available to the public:
  • BMR Coilovers
  • BMR sway bars
  • BMR delrin rear cradle bushings
  • BMR rear suspension bushings
  • BMR front suspension bushings
  • BMR sub frame connectors
  • BMR driveshaft tunnel brace
  • BMR driveshaft safety loop
  • BMR trailing arms with spherical bearings
  • BMR lower control arms
  • BMR toe rods with rod ends
  • BMR strut tower brace
  • BMR end links

The car runs on Mickey Thompson 18" 305 drag radials on the drag strip and Toyo 20" R888s on the road course. The BMR car has a one piece aluminum driveshaft and G Force 300M rear axles, so nothing in the drivetrain is going to break at the event.

I am a veteran drag racer with the NMCA and NSCA (raced in over 60 events). Some of you know me as Rockin' Al Miller or maybe you know my black C4 Corvette (fastest NA Corvette according to Corvette Forum). I am the test driver for all BMR Suspension mule cars for both road course testing and auto-crossing. I was also the winner of the Speed Stop Challenge at the Holley LS Fest (second place was more than 0.5 seconds slower than me).

By the way, the owner of Royal Purple (sponsor of Forum Wars) uses BMR Suspension products on both of his Camaros.

The BMR mule car is one of the best all around 2010 Camaros out there and I have a ton of racing experience. There are very few camaro5 members that are in a better position to bring home the gold for our forum.
