Shift????????????? I know not what you speak of. Ted shifts for me from his office!


How long does it take to so down a 4500 lb car from 215 mph? Another mile? Do you have to buy another Camaro to use on the weekends like the rest of the maniacs that don't know the words "no more"

It's the 26-28 of October...And yes I will trailer it to the race...

I was daily driving the crap out of mine until my aeromotive piece of crap quit with seven hours on it...I am now running a Weldon... for a total of four pumps in my car to move fuel....

As for slowing down the track is about 8800 feet, and 5280 of it is for acceleration... so... Big chute, lots of brakes... and some leather sucking.....

Below is a image of the track.... The measure line is close to 5280, my mouse isn't sensitive enough to get it exact...

So,we got a lot of the under body aerodynamic stuff taken care of today...

I have a few pics of the rear diffuser skirting.... This will keep us from catching a lot of air with the diffuser since the trash can rear mufflers were supposed to perform this function....

Justin and I built the forward piece as well, but I don't have any finished pics of it yet as we were waiting for the paint to dry to do the final install...

Here is a pic of Justin getting ready to cut it out.... I leave Sunday for a three day meeting in Houston, so I wont be back at the shop until next Friday... Corey should have most if not all of the tuning and dyno runs done by then...

This cover will tie into the existing turbo cover so from the front skirt to the down pipes, or the area of the collector on your headers, everything will be covered....Combine that with the vented hood and I should have some much improved ability to keep it planted on the track...

Will the undercover stay on for daily driving? Seems like heat would start to be a major factor when not moving during every day use.

There rear cover will stay on, the front cover, probably only for high speed runs... Well be monitoring the heat build up as well...

I'll have to show it with pics, but a neat thing about the front cover... it has a flap built up to create a low pressure under the oil cooler, which sits flat under the radiator... this will cause air, along with the flap on top of it, to be pulled through it increasing the cooling effect at high speed...We already have 30 - 40 degree cooler oil temps with the addition of the cooler... Another ten or so degrees getting the oil temps down to around 190 or so would be good...

Ya know, I was just thinking about oil cooling and creating a lower pressure area to help with cooling. Even stock oil temps are too hot for my liking. I'd love to see the install pics when it's in.

Looking good!!
