So does a burnout with square wheels constitute "wheel hop" ?

Ouch !!

Hey, we're all glad your wheels now go round and round. I am sure your car rides a whole lot better than before.

Oh ya. No more wheel hop.

You know when you're getting wheel hop from the FRONT wheels on your SS, there's a problem. hahahahaah

Alright - I can say it now - YOU SUCK !!!
Not only was it HIS first ride in a new Camaro, but you gave him a ride BEFORE me.

Next time I will feed both you and him a box of Ex Lax before you take your ride... Talk about skid marks.

Well, the detailed dyno testing is on an engine dyno, not a chassis dyno. Doing 50 - 100 pulls in the 1,5xx+ range is not something you want to do on a chassis dyno.

...and you are pretty scary with the baby picture. Our Director of Engineering here is 35 and has 12, yes twelve kids !!!

Originally I wanted this car to look 100% stock, idle stock, get 25 mpg and pump out 1000 hp, but at this stage it was decided to kick it up a notch. So you have now seen that heads were changed and upgraded for considerably higher flow capacity. Something about a motor making so much power should not idle like it's electric, so the decision was made to chuck the hydraulic roller LS7 cam and run a solid roller with a NASCAR valvetrain. So the heads are now topped with nascar springs and a full T&D shaft roller rocker setup. This setup has proven to be bulletproof and should last for 100,000 miles with no problem.
Still guessing 1952. NASCAR = 700+, normally aspirated.....hmmmmm;

It's not a big cube motor tho... I'm amazed he can use 'dependable' and '1500+' in the same sentence
