This is CLOSE, boys 'n girls. Kyle Tucker and his wheelman are exactly 4 TOTAL finishing positions in Class "SS/GT2" behind a very well tweaked and driven BOSS LS...with the (hopefully) Dry Skidpad being the final event tomorrow AM for Class Crown (say that fast!) in the '13 edition of One Lap of America. The DSE-tweaked 1LE has a Mast Motorsports LS7 under the hood (sounds like a car we all could love!), but suffered some initial problems, falling well back. But there's one event of One Lap to go...so GO Tucker!

Very interesting motor discussions. I just want to be driving a Camaro instead of this truck.

...and now for something else Completely Different...

Cool Video.

All that sideways smoke looks great, but is is the slow way around the track. Danny Popp in the L/28 would have been doing his interview while the bike was completing the runs

Indeed, Sir.

Sideways acceleration is more of an artform. Fun to watch and to do, but definitely not an efficient use of rubber or torque.

I would love to see how badly he would "smoke" them while they are out there smokin' up the place.

A few new renderings from GM that I haven't seen yet. Could be a repost.

Actually the real Z/28 wheels! But I do love white lettered tires always have. I have to have the PS guy redo my pic with the actual Z/28 wheels.

Me too, a great design. Even better they are fully functional - forged, so strong and lightweight. Well done GM, well done.

Glad you stopped by. Question if I may, in removing the AC what is your expected weight loss for the Camaro? Thanks!

Hmmmm good question. Not knowing the actual numbers of everything they took out, I'd say it was good for 35 pounds +/- 10%.

Compressor, condensor and evaporator................I'm sure it is a good chunk of the weight savings.

Wonder if we'll hear an official number.


BTW, watching American Icon: Muscle Cars on Velocity. Show on the "Ponies"
