Trans-Am Camaro's!

Hey everyone my name is Cameron. I race Trans-Am in the TA2 class in a Howe Camaro! These are purpose built tube framed Camaro's with an LS3. You gotta come check these cars out they're awesome! The series has 2 more double race weekends. Next weekend we're at Brainerd and then Road Atlanta November 3 and 4. Make sure to stop by and see me in the #11 Miller Racing red Camaro!

Do all the cars have the same tube framed chassis, regardless of car manufacturer? What kind of mods are done to the LS3? What kind of transmission do you run?

I didn't know the Trans-Am was still an active series. The cars look great. Are these races viewable on the internet?

The first half of the season was covered by GoRacingTV.com but it didn't work out and they were dropped. You can try checking out their website though and see if they're still up. Or I have some in car if you check out my youtube page! http://www.youtube.com/user/camracer23
Also all Trans-Am info is a gotransam.com !

Thanks! If anyone stops by looking for me I'm the kid of the group. Just turned 20 this month. For Road Atlanta you should just be able to buy them at the gate since its on a regular SCCA weekend! But I'll look into it as it gets closer. The Paddock is always open to fans to come and walk through!

I see Howe has switched from ovals to road courses. I used a ton of their products and even 1 chassis

They still do oval stuff too but they're branching out. It is basically one of their oval chassis converted for road racing. Just changes some bars and geometry to even out the weights and stuff. Very well built cars though and a blast to drive!

Looks like you had quite a handling advantage over the other cars at Road America. Great videos, thanks!

Awesome! Road Atlanta will most likely be the biggest race of the season with the best competition. Plus you get 2 races in 1 weekend! Along with tons of other cars to watch with SCCA races going on.

More info on the performance side of the car is we run the blueprinted Katech LS3 with the truck intake (more torque), a spec cam, headers, and a restrictor plate to reduce the HP to just under 500. Minimum weight is 2830 lbs running 10in Goodyear slicks and a Jerico 4 speed road racing transmission (clutchless shifts!) with a quick change rear end!

Oh and I almost forgot, my teammate is TA legend Pete Halsmer that used to run for Roush along with team owner Mike Miller!

Hey Woodside, let me know if you decide to go. That sounds like a fun trip. I have been wanting to go to some races either this Trans-Am series or some of the Grand-Am Rolex or Continental Tire races.

Sorry didn't see you post till now. There is not one spec chassis at least not at the moment. Alot of the new camaros and cars coming into the series are the Howe chassis but some of the older cars run ex-asa chassis. My old car ran a 2000 Port City ASA chassis run by Mike Cope and he also help us with setup and maintenance. Chassis isn't dictated by motor but body is. A mustang is in production now and should be at Road Atlanta possibly even this weekend at Brainerd. The LS3 is strengthened, runs a spec cam (ASA cam i think) and runs the truck intake for clearance reasons and for slightly more torque due to the restricter we run to keep horsepower slightly under 500. We are forced to run a 4 speed transmission with a H pattern. I think everyone runs the Jerico 4 speed with a 7.25 or 5.5 in. triple disk clutch with a quick change rear end. Hope I answered your questions! The more questions the better! Come check these cars out!

Here's a picture of my old car that also runs SCCA GTA class with multiple track records
