So i spoke to Logan who is tuning my car and he said there is really no cure with my setup for belt slip. He said it was slipping real bad and i need to go with an 8 rib setup. Good news is it broke 700 real easy, we will get the best possible numbers with limited belt slip hopefully later today or tonight?

Nothing in stone yet, might have to tame it down after we get some SAE corrected numbers but yes numbers are looking real good! Now to deal with belt slippage

Don't take this the wrong way...Car is sooo clean looking I would think about another hood. That looks like a big Camel nose and distracts from the rest of the car. The human eye goes to the lightest part of any image naturally. Knowing this my eye goes right to the hump on the hood and lose sight of other features on car. How about the Z-force hood. Still get a rise but not as much

No problem, love constructive criticism, i love the MPD Z Force hood also it's just a toss up between the two?

as well....Its really one of the cleanest builds I have seen without being way over the top. Reminds me of a classic car design with two tone colors.
The ZL1 hood will still definitely give a Bad ASS appearance while maintaining over bearing lines if going that route. Look forward to seeing final decision

Thank you i appreciate your opinion, and in the end it will look awesome because old school was my father and i am a little newer school. When you said that it made my day! In case you didn't know this was my fathers order and he passed before taking delivery 2 weeks before it arrived at the dealership. His ashes are painted into the front bumper!

I gathered that it might be a tribute car but had no idea it was a preorder for you dad and then upon his sudden death his ashes painted into the bumper!!!! Wow!! Seriously one of my favorite builds on the forum!! You have really honored him and it shows through out the build!! Camaro feast is in Huston this year and hope you can make it!!!! Would love to meet you in person and see car first hand!! I will be there for sure. Look forward to watching your thread!!!! You dad would be proud and is proud looking down!!!!
