A Gen-5 Camaro casts about the same shadow as a late-'60s Chevelle...

The Tuckers did well at Pahrump...as they do most places they run. Good people making good products that run well.

Congrads LPE, ninth overall is great at that event,only the best of the best in the country get invited.Not to mention the LPE 5th gen camaro was over 8 seconds faster than the next fastest 5th gen camaro.I think LPE and Pedders made a nice package tons of power and glued to the track.

At the risk of repeating myself, this is from the other thread:

I think your "Top 10" finish, considering 6" of snow in the pass 'tween Vegas and Pahrump, combined with a 37* temp Saturday AM...in a Brand New combination untested @ Spring Mountain...speaks VOLUMES for potentialities!

Well-done, Pete, and all those who were a party to this worthy endeavour!


Remember, folks, the NUMBER 1 mod for any car? Seat time...

Too bad there hadn't been a relatively stock Z06 or ZR1 (or dare I say ZL1!) present...

Amazing! Can't wait to hear what it is doing when fully fleshed out.

Love the pic of it coming out of the corner.

I just cut down this footage of our hot lap, which is actually when I shot that shot coming out of turn 10 (Entering the beginning of this lap). Great video to work with, and a lot of fun cranking it up! This new crate motor has a real sense of urgency!

Couldn't have done it without Pedders, Forgeline wheels, Brembo brakes, and the Michelin's too... and all the hard work. Thanks again Pete! I love how flat this thing corners!

You're welcome sir. I may just cook up a few special tweaks after thinking about our results. We wouldn't want anyone to get close enough to the L/28 to recognize it from behind
