Finally out from under the car cover

I haven't touched this car in the past 14 months. Tuning has kept me busy with customer cars with no time to work on my own. While the 434 lsx is being freshened im going to put a stock ls3 motor in the car and crush some records. This is how the car sits now waiting on the paint shop. 5 weeks from now ill be back running and 550lbs lighter than last years 3930 lb raceweight. Huge thanks to BMR for the rear suspension parts to make the 15's fit.



Motor and trans out. Everything under the hood and inside trunk removed for paint. Getting repainted back factory color except the VFN hood and Carbon trunk.

What else are you doing to shed 550 lbs., besides the brakes, wheels, tires?

The Strange kit. It's the same one used on the COPO cars.

You didn't run a 9 yet?

I don't follow the COPO stuff. Not sure what the record is.
I went 10.18@134 at 3880 lbs making 565 rwhp. I fixed some issues with the Lsx motor and looking to make 650 this time around. Best I could see it running is a 9.60@140.
I also fully plan on running 9.60's with a stock ls3 bottom end on a little nitrous.

I haven't been to a 1/4 mile since last year. Local track is only 1/8. Planning on a visit to SGMP later this year, should get it done once it cools off...

You didn't go 10.18 @ 134 making 565 rwhp at 3880. No way, no how.

Uh, thats easy with a 2 speed or a huge converter and a 3speed and a gear. Don't get hung up on #s, its a lot easier to go fast then most people seem to have success with, with these cars. Just a matter of the right parts. My shit would fly with a 4.30 or 4.56, but then it wouldn't be worth much on the street.

Hi my name is Sam. Do a little research on how I've been able to run fast with little power in this Camaro.

You are going to be extremely butt hurt when I go 9.6's with 750 rwhp @3550.

His head is going to explode before the end of 2013.
The car will be labeled a "race car" the instance it's faster than his.

Yes it is. I originally built and drove the car for him. I purchased it a few years ago.
