I drive it pretty much every weekend but realistically speaking I can only put full power down when its wearing a 15x11.5" slick on the strip. Heh!

Here are some pics I pulled from our club forum, I have much higher quality versions along with LOTS of other pics that I'll upload as I have time at home. There are minor differences as the car has evolved over time from these.

Pics from Texas Camaro Revolution 2013

More pics from earlier this year. This was my first run on the new 15" rear set up so I ran it conservatively and still ran 10.06 to win the Unlimited class. Owen took 2nd and David took 3rd for an ARD clean sweep!

LONG story! Heh! This car started out several yrs back as #1 of the Hennessy HPE650's then became #2 of their HPE800's (it was actually started first and finished concurrently with#1) then I got involved with ARD to do a full rebuild and it has evolved into what it is now. I finally decided it was time to get a proper thread going on it and start pumping in the info.
