Agreed! There's a few members of the Camaro Club of The Rockies here in Laramie, but I haven't met any of them yet. I've always been too busy to join them on a cruise.

Yeah, I saw on the CV3 thread. Looking good! Now we both need a 1" drop.

Went to Driftoberfest 2012 in Longmont, CO this weekend. Had a great time. Mostly spectated and did ride alongs, also helped my buddy with getting his car prepped since he was participating (his car is the maroon 240SX pictured below). He took 3rd place.

I also got a chance to drive my car on the track by participating in the "Circle Drag". The circle drag is where you drag race against another car around a circle track for one lap. I won my first race against a Subaru Sti (the driver said it put 500 hp to the wheels), seen in the first video and pictured below. There was a substantial amount of dirt and dust thrown onto the track from the drift events so the car's torque made maintaining grip somewhat difficult.



But I lost my second race to a 3000 GT (second video). The driver told me it was TT'd at 26 lbs of boost making 480 hp at the wheels. After the race I spoke with the driver, and he said the outer lane had much less dirt on it so it was easier to maintain grip, possibly my downfall in the second race. Anyways I had a blast and am glad that I finally got a chance to test my car against another. I hope to make a trip to a proper drag strip soon to truly test the car's metal as well as my own.

The official 2012 Rocky Mountain Rally video has been released, and it's awesome! A few camaro burnouts in this one.

Thanks man, Night Shades makes them, and are a vendor on here.


A friend of mine photoshopped my car to show what it would look like if it were lowered. I think the next big mod is going to be coilovers and maybe a few other suspension components.

ZL1 Bumper and Rockers are on! Though I still need to readjust some things (the bumper is slightly out of alignment and I need to figure out why). I was originally worried about clearance with the new splitter, but it appears I still have plenty of room to spare 3-4". Also, the rockers appear to not be any lower than the original SS rockers, they just appear lower. The entire kit was supplied by Gary's Customz, and he did a fantastic job paint-matching (especially since he did it sight unseen). Highly recommend his work!
