V6 Camaro almost in the 11s

We had a Black Friday meet and greet at Atco which turned into a Black Friday/Saturday meet and greet. After finally sorting out my 125 shot, I almost broke into the 11s posting a 12.016 and then a 12.015. I then decided to leave the 11s for next year rather than pulling my interior apart, lol.



1st run bolt-ons 2nd and 3rd on juice.

I thought you would've had the interior yanked before you went out there. Beautiful runs and great weather for it.

Man, that is just awesome. That is hauling the mail right there. Wasn't there someone on here saying the V6 wasn't gonna handle the gas and you were gonna grenade the motor. Yeah, I remember who said it. Wonder if he'll give you some props.

Awesome Rod!!!!! Unbelievable for a V6. And yes, 11;s are not far away.

Gotta get you guys to work on your reaction times though! It has no effect on ET, but being a life long racer I just cringe at a late light.....you can make money with these cars guys!!!!!


Anyway, you are the undisbuted King right now and I'm impressed!

Some tracks are strict and some are pretty relaxed. Norwalk as long as your not in an points race your usually ok. I plan on running 10's next year and not putting a cage in either.
