...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 !!!

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.

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.

Umm.. i wouldnt go as far as quiet.. it is pretty effin loud. Think PQ is right.
Stealthy.. YES... i tried to go sleeper, but stealthy is a better word now.

Very nice numbers Kyle!!

I'm like you in respect to wanting more HP/TQ. I always said that I only wanted 600RWHP, but now that I have it I want to hit the 700 mark.
