LSX Shootout & Fastest Fifth-Gen

Just wanted to thank everyone that came out for the LSX Shootout, and for those that participated in the Fastest Fifth-Gen. This year we saw the fastest cars battle it out for some exciting action that went late into the night (due to impending weather). I can't say enough how appreciative we were that everyone stuck around, and put on an awesome show in the process. A new record was set and two 8-second cars battled for the title. It was truly an amazing experience. Look for coverage in the March issue of GMHTP. Hope to see everyone again next year!

It's awesome seeing the Farks/ARH, LPE and RPM Transmission cars go at it and trade top spot back and forth. They just keep getting faster. Great stuff.

Hopefully we see some 9 sec Camaro runs at the TCN2012 in two weeks.

Scott it was nice running into you. We're thrilled that the GM High Tech team works so hard to give us all some exposure. Running the final at 5:30am was something we'll be talking about for a while. We look forward to the March issue. All the best!

Nicky,

Glad you guys hit it hard! Was most certainly a fast field this event. Great job to you and the boys at LPE and RPM!

Agreed. The NMCA/LSX Shootout Crew rocked as well.

Wish we had met!

Got pics of each car in the first round of eliminations (about 1am?), enjoy.

Jamie yes I was there but as usual I had an O2 sensor that was bad and we didnt figure it out until the 2nd run as the car would act like it was fat but showed it was lean so we got tht sorted and while I was waiting to do the third run and hopefully lay a run down it rained. I ended up leaving as I knew it was going to be an all nighter and I wasnt willing to stay up til sunrise to make 1 pass. Im taking the car this week to Holley hedquarters and they are going to work with us on the tune setup and I am going to the GN race at beech bend to try and get some runs in.
