Thank you so much! It was nice to meet you at the show! Definitely keep me updated on your Camaro search! I still recommend the ZL1 if your budget allows. It truly is an amazing car and if you're planning extensive performance mods for an SS, the ZL1 is a great option because it doesn't require anything more than bolt ons to perform incredibly.

Thank you!
Have you gotten your wheels powder coated yet? Keep looking to see if your thread has popped up with new pictures of the wheels!

Sadly, No I went to drop them off and they weren't there...and it's been hard trying to drop them off again since they are closed on weekends and I work everyday pretty much. Not sure when they will be done now :/

Awe, that sucks. Have you looked to see if there are any other companies in your area that are open on Saturday?

I took the Camaro out to the track to make some runs on Sunday.
The Super Chevy Show is coming to Palm Beach International Raceway this coming weekend and I'm going to run in the CamaroGuys 5th Gen Challenge so I needed to figure out what time to dial in at.

I actually ended up running my fastest time… even with 22" wheels haha!

I also got some good pictures while I was there!

I have tried it's hard for communication since I don't think they do car parts all that much. Though I leave for a month on Monday so hopefully I can get them done when I get back (fingers crossed)

Yeah definitely don't see many cars running on 22s but I don't think my 20s will fit over my brakes… haha!
Damn… gotta get some pictures from your phone at least next time!

That sucks… one thing after another, huh.

Well… nothing worth actually bragging about haha! Ran a 14.4 But in my defense… the 22" wheels and who knows how many pounds of stereo equipment isn't helping... haha!
Seems like the car should be running faster despite the weight though, I think the limited tuning for the v6 is holding it back. I've had multiple tunes from Trifecta but none of them have been great.

Thank you! I figure my car isn't running hard enough to really risk any damage in the 1/4 mile. Taking it on the road course was probably pushing it but hey, you only live once haha!

Hey Stranger.. How's Texas?

Yup, still have the 20s. They've been sittin' pretty in my shop underneath my truck haha! I actually haven't tried putting them on. As much as I hope they'll fit, I really doubt they will since I can't even have valve covers on the front 22s cause they don't clear the brakes…

I think my buddy who ran way faster than me might have gotten a few pictures of my car, should know later today.

Yeah, trying to get those done I really want to see them on my car!

Stereo equip and 22s still not a bad time though. And who doesn't love taking it out on a road course!

I have an exciting update….

I met the associate editor of GM High-Tech Performance at my local track a several months back and my SRT-8 brake conversion got mentioned. Well, long story short… my car is in the May issue of GM High-Tech Performance magazine!

I was so excited when I saw it, I bought every magazine on the shelf haha!

Here are some screen-shots from my digital subscription…
