Where did/do you play...

That is a serious invite by the way... if you don't believe me, ask Robroy from Florida...

Hey, for the being the 501st poster in my thread, you win a ....... . ...... ... Congratulations... You already know what it is...

Robert Jr, teaches primarily catching and hitting... he coaches club baseball as well...He plaayed everywhere in college, and caught, 1st, third and the outfield corners in the pros.. He and my youngest were coaching a team together.. they both played college ball on the same team for one year... when Robert went Pro, Darrenn moved back to Texas and decided to concentrate on school... he is a senior, with one more year to go, he lost a lot of credits when he transferred... but he'll get there...

Oh well im only 16 so i play varsity at my high school. I am definitely going to try and make a trip to come down there. Any big camaro events over the summer that would be worth driving down to? I would love to come down and take a few pointers of baseball. Cars and baseball? cant think of anything better!

I'll find out if Robert is coaching a club team here in Austin over the summer if you're interested.. What position do you play...Of course, if he is, and we could make this work, you're parents need to be involved in the decision... Just a thought... i'll get back to you on that... sports are pretty heavy around my house.. My wife is the Athletic Director for a University, and then the boys played baseball and football, etc... I played baseball, and then softball, but now I play with my Camaro...

Got room for me? - Looks great - After the testing, you may consider V band clamping the turbo down pipes to your system - at 1000hp your entire exhaust system expands a ton. Here is a crappy pic of the car I did for ARP



Note how we V banded it at the down pipe but then down stream we were able to use a reg band clamp

Robert I hear that wrap is also used to create a James Bond smoke screen so you can evade any local gendarms using this inexpensive cloaking device.

BTW... Brandi is coming together nicely and I can't wait to hear her purr.

What driving plans have you guys going to the Fest made... North, south, Austin, etc...

Kyle, Happy Pappy and I as well as a few others are meeting up in dripping springs, leaving from there and heading out 290 to J.C., Fredericksburg, Harper and onto IH 10 to meet up with the San Antonio Gang...
I won't be able to keep up, but I'd love to join you guys if you got room for one more since I'm in the New Braunfels area!

Your more than welcome to join us...... the more the merrier! We can meet up with you at the junction of 290 and 281 in Johnson City if that is closer for you? We are picking up Import Killa at that same location.

Robert - your up, I'm not touching this one

I'm not going,..too long of a drive for me.. ("my back").
So far, looks like "Import Killa" is the only one who's going to make it to the Fest.
He's been trying to get some of the New "Coalition" members to join him, but no confirmations from any of them.
I believe he's been in touch with "Happy Pappy", and he's linking-up with you guys

I would love a video but it has to be limited in size and emailed to me. We can't access YouTube or any other video sites. Limited band width...Say 20 mb or so max...but you can send more than one... In separate emails...

I wouldn't dare ask my wife something like that or ! LOL

Awesome R !!!

You are gonna love it.

The one thing you will notice about turbos is that during "normal" driving the exhaust is very quiet since the turbos take so much sound energy out of the exhaust.

You are ....S....O.... Close !
