well.. i figure.. rebuilding an old school V8 when i was younger should qualify as a 3.... but since both engines I built only lasted a few hundred miles I dropped it to a 2

ok.. one lasted 3 years, the other lasted 10 min, so i averaged it out

...so if you take a horse and pull a 180 pounds 181 feet in a minute...

...and determine that HP and TQ cross at 5252 rpm...

...and then Kyles car has 708 of these horses and a bunch of torque...

...how fast can Kyle get to C5Fest2 with 25 other cowboys and 708 horses ?

If you figure this out you win a free pair of MC69's socks...


As long as your tires don't go flat or your wheels go square, this will be one fast Camaro !!!

now thats funny. but to correct the math... we will have way more than 25 cowboys.. like maybe 125 after hitting New Mexico.. and I can only go as fast and Tag lets me

Kyle,

That is rocking. It was great meeting you last year and wish I could make the trip this year to see your car and take a ride.

Maybe next year we will be in GA again and I can get a ride. Car looks to be a beast.

There goes my one clean pair of socks thankyouverymuch

TAG will be beyond his jurisdiction... when you hit the I8/I10 split GAS it and hope he don't have powerful friends in Phoenix

I thnk it was the audio settings. Noise canceling in the mic or something. You can hear the drum easily.

Yea...it's not obnoxious like mine, but I wouldn't say it's a sleeper either. Sounds pretty mean, especially when he gets on it.
