lol, Ya, it just struck me as kinda off that there would be a article that you didn't know about. Seems like they'd need to ok it with you.

But that's none of my business. Just thinking out loud.

And....

Then............

Typing it anyway.

There are already 'bootleg' copies everywhere.
As long as it's entertaining no biggie.
Heck, it's fun watching all those videos on YouTube and StreetFire....

Looks like LSXTV did a feature article on the SST Camaro that member GmcSierra6.2 found. Pretty neat.

I can't imagine spending that much money on a tire-burner. It's funny; "somewhere in the neighborhood of $200k-plus." and I bet a stock LS3 will beat it to 60..

Wow.....congratulations! I am looking forward to seeing your car at the track, hopefully Valdosta! Please let me know when you plan on taking it, I will show up for sure.....I love the EBC, I need to do something like that on my car so I can take care of the launch much better, who knows, I could probably break into the 9's with a better 60' time using an EBC like yours.....have fun with it!

Well took GTA and his office mgr for a couple of rides at lunch. First was T, his office mgr. Driving along, rolled into it and then cranked it at 4500. Hit the rev limiter instantly at 7400, Doh...Nice novice driving job. OK did it again, this time shifting quicker like I should have the first time. Nice little perma-grin this time. Maybe peed the seat just a little...lol.

Had lunch. GTA rode on the way back. Trying to drive like a normal human. Did a couple of rolls up to rev limiter and shift. Next time shifted to make it sound just like a manual tranny. Pretty fun. I hope GTA liked it. As soon as the big meats get fitted looking forward to being able to turn the wick up and get some real power to the ground.

Yes, THR22 and SST got along well. We had to tell them to behave a few times, but kids will be kids...

Chris said he was afraid to park next to it for fear SST would grab THR22 up and shake it.

He seemed pretty impressed. Talking to him he sounds like he was 7 years old telling me about the the first baseball game he just went to.

Funny, at the same boost level as us the SST still would kill us.

Tom Nelson just called and asked how things were running. Told him about driving it back and forth to work and just enjoying it. He asked if I turned on the boost controller yet. I said, not until I get tires and alignment done. He said good, 'cause he only gave me 4 lbs extra for now. Just like a Dad watching out for his kid. Guess the SST grew on him after 3 years...

We'll call the red nose comment a salute to my team leader... and Yes, there are two BA Camaro's in the pic... Very Nice...
