Nice running for both of you! You make us Camaro owners proud. Can't wait to run down that track myself at C5Fest.

you're going to have a blast at the fest in April, this track is pretty cool! I will post my slip later....we ended up in the quick 16, there were A LOT of mustangs and during qualifying, we had fun beating up more than a few.....Mod4SS had bad luck because he was paired up with the eventual winner, which, basically was a race car. I made it to the semis (final 4) with my 11.3, but got beat by the same '67 mustang that beat Mod4SS.

I stopped by SGMP two weeks ago. (It was not open, but a worker let me check out the track). Very nice surface. Good for some fast times as you and Mod4SS have proven. Glad you are having so much fun with your TT.

I'm glad you made it to the semis bro! If that 67' mustang didn't have NOS to assist with his other Power Adders, then we both would have beat him.

Until April, my friend

Thanks! Yes, it's amazing the difference a good pair of DR's will do for 1320 runs.

Here are a couple of my best slips so far. I understand we are only allowed 1 slip, so i would like to have the old one with a 13.03 deleted and have the 12.80 instead. The 12.80 was my best run where i didn't red light. On the 12.80 run, i missed 3rd gear, so it had the potential to be in the 12.60's, all things being the same.
The other time slip was my best so far. I know its a redlight and it doesn't count for the official list, but it's still pretty quick for a completely stock SS. Yes, it's completely stock. Other camaro5 members were at the track that night cheering me on. I think the 12.60's that are at the top of the list are completely believable, because i'm right in the same neighborhood. The next cold snap we have down here, i'm gonna try for the record.

I forgot to post the important info in the above post.
Tires used on the pass: stock tires at 33lbs.
Performance Mods (if any): None.
Category submitted for: Bone stock.
R/T.......... .035
60'............. 1.870
330'........... 5.294
660'........... 8.244
660’ mph... 82.95
1000'.......... 10.740
1320'.......... 12.806
1320’ mph… 109.80
Name of the track: Palm beach international raceway
Date of pass: Feb 17, 2010
Weather conditions: (include Density Altitude, if known): 54 degrees, 60% humidity, -286 DA.
I also missed 3rd gear. oops.

Mod4SS.

Here is another timeslip that shows the 111+. It is accounted for on the unofficial list, but not the official one because of the redlight. Some may say its not a valid run, but a redlight has no effect on the et or trap speed, that's why its unofficial. But to me, i'll take it. We've still got some good air down here so we'll see what happens.

Great passes! A lil better weather and you might get it!

Very Impressive. You have a strong car and by looking at your 60' times you're a really good driver. Because of the forums rules for the official list, you should try waiting until you see the green light before launching. I know that's real hard to do. But that way you're gauranteed not to red light.

But great times. I'll post your 12.6 in the unofficial list and update your official time.

Thanks for the props. I know I should be more
patient when trying for a legitimate
pass, but old habits are hard to break.
I gotta give credit to the Darrin Morgan break In method. I
drove it hard from the time I picked it up with
12 miles and I'm very impressed with it's performance.

Broke mine in the same way with 11 miles on it and its paying off for both of us!

Yep. I would definately recommend that
method to anyone. After all, it's under warranty.
There's a camaro 5 member that comes to the
track and he's breaking his in somewhere between
Darrin Morgan and the gm recommended method.
