You guys are funny. We will get GTA out on one.

[Maybe a little 6' one... (Sorry - inside joke with GTA)]

Nah, he is a Navy rescue swimmer. He can save himself if we roll it...

Actually on a boat as I type this, but it is a little mellower with the kids. It is very pretty up here ( the 1000 Islands between Canada and NY)

GTA pretends to be a softy, but he's at #2 on my list of people I'd like to have around when things go terribly wrong. A hot nurse beat him out for top spot.

Bruce, you may want to put these on your Christmas list, in case your car is done by then

Something tells me YOU would really enjoy the ride. Especially once you get over 200. The adrenaline really kick in...


Hope to have some more updates on the SST Camaro shortly...

I love boats. Especially FAST boats. Think of how many skiers that boat could pull at one time!

Yeah 6,000 hp can do that... When you hit 100 mph it is accelerating at 10-15 mph per SECOND. Also, at speed it is covering over a football field every second. TAG, You still want a ride ?

Speedster this is my first visit to your build but it definitely won't be my last.

This has got to be one of the most extreme builds I have ever seen and the craftsman ship is top notch. My hats off to your for going all out with this build.

I look forward to your future updates. Thanks for sharing this with all of us.

Actually, when the SST is done we want to get a video of both it and the boat going side by side at 200. Just have to find the right location to do it.

Well Thank You for the compliments Stang_Killer. Trying our best to do a slightly extreme build while keeping it 100% streetable. It has been a challenge.

I love your RJT and that custom plate. Also, those mirrors are the best !!!

mmmmmm....let me think about this.....














HELL YEAH







You'd have to be NUTS NOT to want to do something like that!


What can I say? I LOVE SPEED.

I think I just need to get out to the Texas Mile.......

....or go out to west Texas where we have plenty of 6 mile STRAIGHT stretches of highway.....

Don't worry...if a video pops up, it will be on the SPEEDO the entire time...

You should definitely go to the Texas Mile. Put that Hero camera on your Camaro's dash and then have another looking out the window.

Also you should look into the Silver State Classic Challenge in Nevada. 90 miles of open highway 318 to hammer it !!!

I looked into it and they require a membership and there is a waiting list. I'm going to sign up for a membership and hopefully be able to do the May run or next years run in September.

Your build is so far above impressive, outstanding, unbelievable, etc. Thank you so much for sharing with all of us. I seriously enjoyed reading it and look forward to more info.

There are 2 questions that popped up in my mind as I read.
1. Did you eliminate all the Air bags in the car except maybe the front dash and steering wheel?
2. I did not see anything written or maybe I missed it, on a onboard fire control system that I thought was required for your speeds.

Thanks again

mike

Hey Mike - Thanks for your compliments. They are much appreciated. The SST has been quite the undertaking so I hope that others can learn (or avoid) things we did along the way.

1) The air bags are physically still in their factory location, but any that are directly blocked by the rollcage were disabled. Part of the trick with the factory computer/wiring was all of the items tied to the airbags. Wanted to make sure the ones that add to safety remained enabled.

2) I thought I stuck something in about the fire suppression - maybe not. Anyway, the car has a SafeCraft RS-10 system that has 3 discharge locations - Engine Compartment, Passenger Compartmen and Fuel Cells. Don't want to be part of a cookout...

Awesome to here you are protected. No a GTO owner that has 985hp at the rear and and turns in the high 8s,. low 9s. He his auto trans that granated and massive flames. His fire system worked perfectly wqith nio damage to the car or heim. The tranny, well RIP!

thanks for the info!
