3 racks of back ribs
4 turkey beasts
120 meatball (give or take a few. Have sample to ensure quality hehe)
6 boudain cajun style sausages
And a bunch of homemade bbq sauce

Hope this is enough for everone to at least try something.
If that is all you're sending there won't be much left over for the guests This is too cool. Thanks in advance for what I know will be a savory moment making C5FEST III memorable.

Pete,

A serious question. (what's that?!)

Can I go with the pedders zl1 rear bar setup and keep my current front pedders sway bar?

Or would that throw everything outta balance?

Absolutely.

The 2013s are coming with electric steering. Electric steering cars come with a different shape front bar. We are migrating to that bar shape which is still a three position adjustable 27mm bar. Your current 27mm bar is begging you to get a Z style rear bar!

Ok cool, I'll add that to the list. Gotta get the whipple on first. You're gonna love the gauge setup I'm building.

Electric steering? Wow. I'm not too sure I'd like that. If I could, I'd order a camaro with no power anything. And no AC. So much weight. Just horsepower and suspension.

A ZL1 is a lot of car out of the box. The inserts take it up a notch. The lower CG another. I have a driver that might have a tip for you...

Coasting is bad. You are on the gas or brake. No engine braking. Walk the course until you can draw a picture of it. Draw the picture. Find the key cones. Don't hit them. HAVE FUN!!!!

walk the course until you can do it blindfolded. I get into 2nd gear and just stay there, no need to shift and it's better to keep 2 hands on the wheel at all times.

I will remember that and walking the course is exercise and I need to lose weight maybe pick up a couple tenths

Oh and take EVERYTHING out of the car - well anything that isn't strapped down anyway. Because it'll go flying when you take turns.

Food is getting sent this morning! You should have it at the hotel tomorrow by 5 at the latest.

If you have access to a grill, slowly heat up the ribs and sausage. For the meatballs either use a microwave (60% power until meat is warm) or a crock pot. Dump 1 jar of sauce on them and go at it. After time the sauce will take the flavor of the smoke, oh so yummy.
For the turkey, thaw it out, slice it, and then heat in a microwave at 60% power until warm. You won't believe how moist and tender it is.

I wish I could be there to prep and serve it up for you guys. I know you'll all enjoy it.

Stay safe and enjoy the weekend!

Please, PLEASE no microwave. That looks like really awesome meat. Put me down for $20 for a toaster oven or a crock pot.

Nothing wrong with a microwave if you use it the right way. Just have to make sure you check the food often and not use max power.

Becky, Maureen and Gerry have been talking about this for years. Talking moved to action and the result is the stunning Rodgers Performance Option - RPO. The RPO is features the best-of-the-best components and quality of installation. The RPO is ready as is or is the foundation for a more radical build. Wheels, tires, CAI, Headers, Suspension, Tune and custom graphics make this Camaro special.



I'll let Becky provide more detail, but this build is special. I want to congratulate Dave Moon and Brandon Kelly for their excellent work along with Beck, Gerry and Maureen. Hey Joe, you are a lucky man to have people of this quality on your staff





















































If you think this is cool, it gets better. Rodgers can add heads and cam, super charger or for the really hard core a LS7 crate motor. If you can dream it, Rodgers can build it. Congratulations on building the very 1st RPO Camaro.
