Not sure if everyone is aware of this
You basically have two driving modes on the Camaro ss, Traction control off and competition mode. There is a 3rd mode which turns all them functions off. I tested it and it does wake the car up but it is a true driving by the seat of your pants, the car wont correct for wheel spin or over steer, or give any launch control.
This is done by holding down your traction control button for 5 seconds, you will notice 2 lights not one will illuminate on the dash and you wont see the competitive mode come up on your dash

Hope we can get a good turn out for the September 15, 2012 meet.
There has been some discussion with some other Clubs about getting together in the near future, also some Cruises. We need to go over all that so we can plan some really great events.
There seams to be some great activity and we want all your input. We definitely are not limited to Ft Myers activity's . See you all next Saturday

Give it a try and let us know. I'll bet you'll wish you'd done it a long time ago

I had a great time tonight as did my wife, son and granddaughter!

I had a feeling that after spending a few hours cleaning my car this afternoon the rain would ruin it, and it did. But totally expected during the rainy season in SW Florida.

So I'll have to wash her again tomorrow before I return her to garage queen status. However, seeing the show a few of you put on as you were leaving on Alico Road made it completely worth the effort.

The wings were great, the Camaro comradeship even better. Looking forward to our cruise up to Bradenton on 20 October 2012 and seeing a few of you at the car show in Lehigh next Friday evening.

It was nice to meet everybody at Wicked wings restaurants. our next meet should be a little earlier so there's less chance for Rain & Have a little more time to Get some pictures... But it was fun, I'm glad I got to meet other Camaro owners at the Meet.

Those of you that was asking, I am setting up a online store to order our clubs logo apparel
There will of course be no club markup.
I should have the apparel link on our site by the end of the week, our logos are embroidered for those of you that didn't see them on Saturday
The logo does look best on darker colors, you will have several styles women s and mens to select from

There is now a link in the link bar to purchase SWFLCamaro apparel on the club's website (www.swflcamaro.com). Feel free to browse the store and create a login. There is no club markup and anything you purchase will be shipped directly to you.

We have also added our own forum to the club's website. Click on the link in the menu bar. The forum was not created to replace or reduce our presence on C5, but because it belongs to the club, we can enjoy more flexibility in our conversations. You may browse as a guest, but you will have to register to post.

MSD Digital Shift Light part # 8963

Just in case anyone runs into this


I just installed one of these on my 2011 SS very strait forward except, instructions are very poor.
The Inductive pickup attaches to number one cylinder coil Pink Wire and the catch is when you program it, you set it to 1 cylinder not 8
It has to do with the way our ignition works.
Overall It works very well and even displays RPM on the display...
