I clicked on every link on the first page. Maybe should've added another letter to SST. SSTG (Super Sammiches To Go). Still shocks me to see 28 psi and 1450 at 6000 rpms!

I thought so. We should all crash their place when they are doing some of the filming. We can be the Camaro5 support group !! So a few burnouts in the parking lot to get everyone's blood flowing...

Thanks. Yeah the last one was after back to back runs with no cool down. We were worried about popping the heads so we tanked that 28 run at 6,000. Driving it the shift point is 7,200 so it give you an idea of what it is like with a little more rpm... Then when we get to swap the 6-bolts on the boost goes to 38.

1450 at 6000, so 1550 at 7200? Sound like you want to claim an all out LOW 8 second run when you get to 38 and 6 bolts.

Ive learned never to claim anything. It seems that when you do, you get burnt. Our goal has always been to shoot for the cage cert. (8.50) Plus those specific turbos were chosen for the 38 psi boost map. If we can just close out that Body Control Module issue, then time to have some fun.

Interesting. I saw Jessica Barton last year at the TX2K11 race (big Supra race). She's a bikini model, and is drop dead gorgeous. She's not just a pretty face though...she shifts an 8 second Supra, and I watched her folding her own parachute.

No argument here. She is from this area and definitely knows how to drive fast cars...
...and has a twin sister.

There is so much going on that this year is a tough one to call. We are going to Gatornationals this weekend (obviously no SST) but I don't know for sure when I will have it in my hands to drive yet. Won't be very much longer - I do know that.

Yeah, she has run an 8.64 at 170 with a 6 speed manual. She does know how to drive... C'mon, I am sure you would like to be the one in the passenger seat screaming like a girl. She's pretty cute.

Didn't really get a chance to meet her, but she seemed pretty cool. I was expecting a stuck up princess who had people doing everything for her. She was folding her own parachute and taking pictures with whoever came by. That earned her some extra points in my book.
