Thanks! Pete had a solid second today but I finished toward the back with an ECU problem. We are the only cars running fly by wire and the throttle wasn't opening when i pushed down the pedal. Swapped the ECU and ran fastest lap of the race. We'll be fast at Road Atlanta Nov. 3-4

MAAAANNN!!! IM so Jelly!!!

Im 22 and I wish I had the money or the people with knowledge to be able to get into racing cars. Unfortunately NO ONE in my family (or any friend) is a real car enthusiast even less for car racing. I have no idea how to get into this .
Therefore the only races I have in my camaro take place between 2am and 8:00am while im sleeping!

Im glad you are having fun with the awesome opportunity you have. Hope to see you in Road Atlanta im only about 1:30 minutes from that race track. Unfortunately I've never been there because im always working on weekends, but I will try my best to show up for this event.

Thanks! The more people the better! The schedule for the Road Atlanta should be up soon. Should have a test day Thursday with practice, qualifying, and racing going on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Double weekend so we'll have 2 100 mile races!

Here's the video from race 2 at Brainerd. Actually had problems with the ECU and the throttle but still managed fastest lap.

Thanks. Ya you would be correct. The pedal was reading movement but the throttle body wasn't picking anything up. I actually restarted the car and reset the ECU and made it another lap before the same thing happening again in about the same spot.

Here's the video from race 1 on Saturday


Feel free to check out all my other videos. I'll be out at Homestead racing this weekend with my car not the camaro. Just got the LS1 rebuilt after blowing it at Mid-Ohio. I should have both cars at Road Atlanta

You can keep up with my racing and more photos on my facebook page http://www.facebook.com/cameronlawrenceracing

Congrats Cam. Keep it going. I'm hoping to buy a used TA car in a few years for an ex winged sprint car motor I have. Love to use it for track days ect. For now I'll be tracking my ZL1 next year at Watkins Glen. Just worked thru my breakin period.

Awesome I do alot of club stuff with my car. There's plenty of stock car chassis out there you can pick up to stick that motor in. We should be back at the Glen next year with Trans-Am hopefully I LOVE that track

Is TA involved in the merger of ALMS and Grand-Am?

Great video but can you post versions without any music? I want to hear the acceleration/deacceleration points, the shift points and where you brake and for how long. Any of the seemingly obligatory heavy metal/hip hop/whatever sound tracks people seem to think are required or no one is going to watch it are not only not required, they actually interfere with listening to the music true racing fans want to listen to; the sound of the engine and racing itself.

Firecross91 no they are not. Trans-Am is not owned by NASCAR or ALMS. We will however probably have some race weekends together at the same track like at Mid-Ohio this year or Road America.

Doc sure I can! Would you prefer just the camera out the front? Or what would you guys like to see more of? I'm open to suggestions

If you have more camera views, like a view out the back as well as the front that would be great! It's always very instructional to see how the pro racers drive; the lines they take and the styles and techniques they use on the track to be competitive.

Thanks!!

Cam are any of rear wings on your Camaro just trunk mounted or are they supported from inside the trunk? My ultimate plan for my ZL1 is about 700 rwhp, lowered, upgraded brakes(cross drilled rotors and race pads) and roll bar with safety belts. I'm looking at running Time Attack, track days and other types of "racing" that doesn't involve competitive passing on the track. I think that I'll get a used GTA car for more competitive driving.

also curious about the wing. I use my camaro primarily to road race and have been wanting to install one for a while, although I'm sure almost all are supported through the trunk

I personally like the view out the front from what would have been the passenger seat.

The wing on the TA2 Camaro's is just mounted to the trunk which doesn't work too well because it's not a stock Camaro body. The way the trunk is mounted isn't strong enough for the downforce so people are starting to mount them straight to supports to the chassis. There's actually a new wing in development for next year that should work and give us more downforce.

You can see in the picture that the wing just mounts on the trunk lid and hinge system. It actually causes the front of the trunk to lift up a tiny but sometimes.

Do you think the stock trunk would be strong enough? What wing do you use on the car?
