I always seem to drive fast in Kentucky. DCX Depot is in Florence and I always seem to leave that shop a little quicker than I arrived.

Im wanting to go just for the stock Camaro vs stock Chally race and possibly Stock mustang. They are even talking about doing a tech inspection to make sure everyone who enters the stock race is playing fair. Which i think is a great idea. We definetly need some fast cars and good drivers to show up to it and represent!

Hey Bruce, yes I am on the list on challengertalk and I am talking with Craig right now about getting the car to him to do a complete undercarriage swap and doing a Rossler trans for clutchless shifts. I am working on a cage right now as well.

Excellent. Keep me posted !! Now I get to invade your home turf...

Maybe we can cruise a little in your area before heading to the track. That'd be fun.

Hopefully you are friends with your local law enforcement !!!

Go please go!

It pains me to see Dodge guy showing videos with 2010 Camaros pulling 2.93 sec 60' times in races against Challengers.

Having to move our event up to the 21st of August. Sorry for the inconvenience. Hope a bunch of you guys can make it. Please check the 1st post of my thread for updated info.

That is brutal. However, I really like the sounds of this event. How will you guys tell if it's the stock tune though?

This sounds like fun. It's a long drive from S Fla, but it might be worth the trip to lay down some sub 13 second runs. It'll prolly be hot as balls and the times will be a little slower for everybody.

That would be Great if you could make it! Itll be Hot and Humid! I was down at a NHRA race thier last year at the end of August and decided to change the converter at the track on my stocker. That was miserabable! Probably mid 80s to mid 90s and a D.A. like Pikes Peak.

The weather will have an equal effect one everybody. It would be great to take the top few spots in the stock category. Are you going? I think we've got them covered. How will they confirm stock?

Im hoping to even if I have to let my wife race it! Shes been wanting to make some passes down the track in it. Heck she might be faster than me??? GSO Challenger is planning a stock tech inspection as far as tuners go or internal mods that cant be seen were all screwed. Itll be on the honor system on that one. Hopefully we dont end up bringing a knife to a gun fight!

Well, if a "stock" chally runs a 12.30 or something crazy, we'll know there's shenanigans. I didn't go to C5fest partially cuz it was a long drive, but I know where I stand in the stock camaro category. Taking a few quick camaros to the challengers event would
be a whole other experience all together.

You've got that right. If our cars perform the way they should it could make for an intresting day in Mopar land. Anything can happen though.

Only 13 spots left! Have you thought about a gear swap in your car?
