Went to the track and put a 2000 Nissan Maxima in it's place We got the same shot off the light, but my Nicky took it! Both brake launched and after 20 mph all I saw was him getting smaller and smaller Both cars are actually dead even on paper. 32xx and 237ish on Nissan mine with 240. Don't know the gains I get with muffler delete, plus I ran on 1/4 tank I have no clue how full he was. I'm still trying to burn up the dealers 87 oct they put in.

Just filled up my car today, figured out she has the bladder issue as other Corvettes her generation. So instead of 20 gallons she is now 16.5 gallons, personally I'm fine with it. I'd rather pay to fill 16 gallons than 20 gallons

Thank you! I can't wait till I have money for a fifth generation Camaro! It's been my dream Camaro since Transformers. And I want a RJM for a close match to the DRM. I even went as far as cleaning and sweeping the whole garage every week for my car to fit in the garage. My mom on the other hand is happy to have anything that will hold all her kids.

BTW, added a Facebook page for Nicky guys can check it out and "like" if you want to follow up on her

Just picked up a rockerswitch from RadioShack and wired it in so my antenna is only up when I want it to or need it. Now my car doesn't have to look like a sailboat

Love Corvettes, hope to get my first when I pay my SS off. Looks like you have done a great job, can't wait to see what engine mods and dressup you get done over time

Love Camaros, hope to get my first when I can pay for one. Thank you, added a mod list to the top of the thread.

Just removed the windshield washer tank and the hoses along with it I don't expect huge improvements I know. But Doc has shown any weight makes a difference. I'd love to get my Corvette down around 3060 what I hypothesized last night.

Pretty good, that something I could never draw correctly is a car. Jets I could do. Cars.....not so much.

Maybe a C4 might be more up your alley. They have more straight angles close to a jet than does a Camaro, C1,C2,C3,C5,C6? Just my thoughts

Does anyone think it would look pretty cool to have a ZL1 shift boot in my Corvette? Might be worth the 62 bucks... I can't find anything of the same quality.

I just washed and waxed Nicky again, cleaned out the garage of winter debris and fixed the Explorer's nonlocking driver door

Congrats man. I almost pulled the trigger on a car just like that when I was 16....color and all. Dad wouldn't budge saying it was too fast. Glad to see you taking care of it like that. Welcome to the family....Kenneth

If I asked my dad he wouldn't budge either It's in my mom's name and her and her husband were all for getting into a cool car club, learning more, and have a good time.

If I seen my son being that responsible about maintenance and care I would have to say on!

It took me until 27 to get my current ss. Your leaps and bounds ahead already. Stay safe and give em hell.

I expect to keep my car and get an SS around 26,27 Depending on if I like the 6th Gen Camaro. It'll be a pretty good debate
