Thanks! I had some recently, but a couple of them tore when I was re-positioning them, so I took them off. I need to order another set, but haven't got around to it.

Thanks! Numbers weren't too bad. Also heard from others that the dyno was reading low numbers...

In other news, I took my car out to LoneStar MotorSports Park in Sealy, Tx for the Camaro Nationals and won 1st place in the V-6 shootout!!! It was my first time out at the track, and I'm officially hooked, to say the least!



The AWESOME trophy I brought home!!!

It's a BLAST out there! I couldn't have done it without some great coaches! I'm learning from the best! I'll upload videos of a few of my runs tomorrow, and hopefully catch some vids from others who were filming...

Couple of personal videos from Texas Camaro Nationals 2011.

V-6 shoot-out. I won by 0.0043 seconds.





And my one-in-a-million launch; 0.008 reaction time.

My best time was 14.37@97 mph. It was my first pass down the track at 11:20 A.M.
After noon, I couldn't break 14.5 even with better launches.

After modding the rear of the Camaro, the front was feeling a little left out so I decided to change that...

Thanks! Next weekend, I'm going to flip it around so it glows behind the grill without being able to see the LEDs directly.

That's my favorite pic, too! Kinda sinister looking... If I would have known the pics would have come out like that, I would have taken all of them on the roof of the garage.

Been a while since I've updated...

Latest mods: new front bumper, repainted front and rear bowties (blue center with black surround), removed Camaro letters from the fenders.

I had the bumper painted and installed in my hometown, but ordered the lower grill (and mail slot insert) and had it shipped to Houston, Tx since I would be heading back soon. I now have the lower grill installed. I'll try to get some updated pics (at another location) this weekend.

I use PaintShopPro 4, using its HDR tool. The photo effects were mainly fr something in the program called "local tone mapping".

This past weekend I installed BMR's 1.2" Lowering Springs. This mod definitely makes a big impact on the stance of the Camaro!

I also recently blacked out the taillights and sidemarkers...
