Most people in the club don't have Facebook. If It got bigger then I would suggest a Facebook route, but we aren't near there yet.

Your welcome to join our club, and come out on our meet days.

Ok, I read the Battery information on the Forums...lots of different opinions..so here is my Texas forum question;

need to put a battery tender on Elvis to ensure battery is kept charged since don,t drive daily, so I am not sure if I can install the tender leads to posts under the hood or directly to battery.....either way I suppose it will require good adequate venting in trunk area, like trunk lid open ??
I need to be sure I do this correctly..........

Comments or suggestions please......

I did see that battery has vent tubing routed underneath to the outside so leaving trunk open for vent is not needed.

The batteries in the Camaro's are sealed so there shouldn't be any gas release problems (you are required to use that type of battery in the passenger area). If anything were to overfill/expand it would go out that tube. With that being said a smart trickle charger shouldn't produce anything that would ever be an issue. If it was me I would hook up the wires permanently in the trunk directly to the battery and leave the leads where you could plug it in as needed. If you drive your car every two weeks or even once a month it should not even be an issue. If it does start to be an issue then you have a parasitic drain somewhere and tracing those down sucks.

My 2 cents..

I agree with the 2 cents he just said, seeing as it took me about 4 hours to comprehend it haha.

My face dropped at the 1,000$ for tires :(. I will not be using p-zeros seeing as they are made for summer performance. Might be looking for all year usage.

Oh btw on the october 13th our meet day, my car will have changed .

The only time the P-zeros have been an issue for me around here was winter 2010 when the temps were below freezing for 9 days straight and we had the icy roads. Barring another repeat of that, I've had good driving luck in our typical winter temps with those tires. You just want to make sure they've warmed evenly before going out on the highway--and to remember below 45-50 degrees, you WILL break the back end loose much easier than normal.



...I think of that as a bonus.

My vote is to go to the show. I know the Black ZL! should be there. A good way to promote our club.

MEET DATE

Date: October 13th. (This Saturday)
Place: Jack in the box 6915 S.Broadway by Target
Time: We will meet up around 3:30pm, and see if anyone wants to head out to the car show. It's always good to be fashionably late .

Cal has more details about the Car show that we could head to from our regular meeting place. Does this sound good too everyone?

Updated: We might be right across the street in the shade by the Mexican place beside jack in the box under the trees if its hot outside.

Cant wait to see you all come out!
