It was great meeting you too Pete. You are the real deal...

Also, I had mentioned that if I can not get this "other" set of coilovers to clear properly I may want a set like Dan has on his car since his does clear 18 x 12.5 rims which are the exact dimensions on the SST.

OK, I understand PARTS of that. Can each computer run independently of the others? The trans. computer is totally independent? And I guess the injector timing doesn't need to know pressure, and vise versa?

This helped me along a little if anyone else wants to give it a shot LOL

Pete took me down the track in the Impala, and I thought that was crazy! I can't imagine your car or even the Hankook Camaro

Yes...

We can neither confirm nor deny the system design.

The aliens landed in Roswell in 1947. They were transported to Area 51. It still hasn't been declassified

I have been to Area 50 and Area 52 and there is no Area 51. At least that you know of. Strange thing... I didn't see any Camaro's there either but I am thinking they were cloaked. Nelson has the patent on that too.

It indeed was. The window was down and my hat flew off on the straight away. Good thing Rob was next to me and caught it. If not It would have ended up somwhere out on the autocross.

Bruce, it was good to see you again and to meet your wife.
If you all get something going for south Georgia, I'll come down. Might even have our Camaro shop car by then

Thanks

We start walking (speedwalking) that way and I told him there were no cars staged so Mindz would be 1st up, so he starts running to the bleachers... My legs were sore the next day trying to keep up with him for 5 minutes
Man, had you guys yelled I would have gladly driven someone down to the staging lanes so you guys didn't have to run. lol.

The whole weekend was phenomenal and I really can't wait for another opportunity to meet you guys. I didn't think that doing the roadcourse was going to take up a whole day and I spent so much time bouncing from group to group trying to introduce myself to people that I really didn't get much time to spend hanging out with anyone in particular unless they were one of the 7 in "the Circle of Trust of which there is no honesty". It's too bad Mlee was kicked out. =/

Next time you're in Cali, please give me a call Bruce. You and your wife were a pleasure to chat with. =)

We need to know next time you are here. Maybe when SST is up and running.
I somehow didn't get to meet the wife.

Hey JR,

I tried to introduce myself to you at SEMA but you appeared disgruntled about something. You said hi, that's great and walked off...I didn't see you at the Fest or I would have tried again.

TEC3r - the truly "main" computer. Think one of the plugs from the factory ECU got crossed with one from this and popped it when it powered up. :(

I believe a new one is on the way...

SEMA is pure stress. I count pennies and that show runs us a bit over 20k. So $5,000 a day. If I came off rushed - I am super sorry

Lets hope it gets to you soon after all the wait you have been thru you deserve a good strong SST. Maybe the computer not working was a coincidence since you didn't have a right yoke before the Fest, (still not sure if you do). But good luck to you Bruce! Hope your safe with your beast! Camaro's and parts are replaceable, but not you

Good point... It could have made a mess of the underside if it let loose. Maybe it was meant to be

Thanks Guys. Yeah, it was one of those we had so many "signs" telling us don't drive it so I guess it was meant to be. Plus we had a F'n blast at C5Fest no matter what. Had fun driving the Black 2011 Camaro rental. The V6 made a little less power than the SST, but we still flew on the trip there...

Thanks. It'd be fun to see you guys too. When I am out there for the road tuning (which shouldn't be too, too far in the future) we'll give a shout out. It'd be fun to see the California crew again. Plus I love that drive through Topanga Canyon and Malibu Canyon. So much fun to drive. Also, a couple of small 14" wide tread marks here and there couldn't hurt...lol
