But there were pro drivers out there, who owned and campaigned their rides which is all fine and dandy. We are OK with it. We are just proud and happy to be able to show the world what our Pedders Camaro can do. You were there, and you could see the lines the Camaro could run, and how much control she had thru all driving conditions. For that, we are happy.

It truly is not totally equal in all events. Look at, for example the 0-60-0 event. How can we compete with a 1800lb cobra running 1000 plus hp, monster tires and brakes? We cannot.

So the bottom line is the honor to be present, participate, meet lots of cool car owners and companies, and share respect for the massive amount of craftsmanship, and love of the car biz, and competitive spirit.
for all of this, we are truly thankful

I think the term "builder" implies building and the term "owner" implies ownership.. lol.. There's no doubt they need to firm up thier rules a bit for next year.

Hey, your Camaro could throwdown hard.. that thing flat boggied around the track and looked great. I think your pro was more pro that the other pros.. lol

It was a great day and it was a blast watching all the cars compete.

11) Participants must use DOT approved tires. Tires will be required to pass a technical inspection at the track. The spirit of the event requires the use of a DOT approved “street” tire – no modifications to tires will be acceptable, including shaving. Any vehicle with tires showing any evidence of modification will be immediately disqualified from the event. DOT approved “R” compound tires are acceptable, examples include BFGoodrich R1’s etc.
No drag radials will be allowed[/COLOR].
That was my point.. there were no "shaved tires".. just approved tires for the event. If someone comes on harder tires than what's allowed they really can't complain that others were on better tires since they could have ran those tires as well.

Next year I hope they move back to some sort of REAL street tire.. either 100 or 200 treadwear.

It is within the rules obviously to use the R compound tires that are Dot rated. But when you go to the tire web sites, they say not to be driven on the street. So you can comply and defy at the same time. I think the great spirit of this killer event is focused around street vehicles. I think, therefore to be more appropriate, they should be street performance tires that are not R compounds. The Pedders Camaro had performance street tires only. Adding the R compounds would increase g forces thru the corners from the 1.4g to the 1.7g area plus good for 2-3 seconds lap time reductions.

But this may eliminate excuses. We brought our Pedders Camaro in full force setup. That is what SEMA is all about. Yet it is commented on the level of our setup. Then being selected, Pete has never done actual track time. Finding out who will be there and who will be driving, Pete would be seriously outclassed. So since we have the relationship with Paul, we called him. So we are commented on that as well. If you bring a car to SEMA and it is not just a garage queen show car, it should have the best that you have to offer. We also proved that our ideas of wheel fitment, size, etc, which diverted quite significantly from our competitors, in fact worked and worked extremely well.

But a great event, and lots of fun, great memories, and great friends made.

Absolutely. As a company we choose not to compete with our customers so we always run in 'exhibition' class. That is why having Paul drive was no big deal. He gets so much more out of the car than I do. I drive well enough to do our R & D and test driving on some cars. The 2010 Camaro came out so well that driving it to the limit is beyond my ability. Paul was right at home in a slow car by his standards.

Paul has no ride at this time. Is an unemployed FORMER professional driver still a professional?

Hey, JusticePete, I know you guys are upgrading the brakes. Will Forgeline wheels clear the new calipers or do you have to get a new set. I'm also getting Forgeline wheels and do a brake upgrade in a couple months.

Good question.

1. We use Cobalt friction XR1 and XR3 pads for the Camaro. They are awesome pads and a brake upgrade in a brake pad box. We do this because we feel the OEM pads are not designed for track use. They can crater and fail from heat. It is a safety issue from our perspective. I had my OEM pads fail on the G8 and didn't wreck the car because I got lucky at the track. They failed in an ares that gave me an option. I was supposed to make a right turn from the back straight to the main straight. Doing more than 100 MPH I hit the brakes. They did almost nothing. Knowing the track is where I got lucky. slightly to the left is the entrance to the pits. I flew into the pits, through the parking lot and eventually stopped the car. The pits and park area were empty as I was the only car at the track. I got lucky. I also created a rule that day -- Never track a car with OEM pads. Never.

2. An after market kit SHOULD fit in the Forgelines. That is something we will have to address. I have no plans to change wheels. I just want more brake. an eight pot would be nice, especially fitted with our Pedders special pads from Cobalt Friction.

Thanks for the info on the OEM pads. I just ordered the Xa Track Extreme kit two days ago, can't wait to enjoy it at a track day.

Dave is the MAN at Forgeline. I trust them with my life and my driver's lives.

I would call him unemployed with poor prospects of future employment in his area of expertise.

Pretty much what we had written down. The Cobra, killer 69 Camaro and the Pedders Camaro with the fastest road course laps. How great is it to have TWO Camaros as the fastest cars at the Challenge?
