Heck, the prediction would have been for 18 months ago.

...but, I got off the phone with a Camaro 5 sponsor tonight and the differential housing, centersection, gears, stubs and axles are just about done and that is the last major piece(s) we have been waiting for. Gotta be patient otherwise the euphoria would be short lived the first time you stomp on the gas.

I don't know how you can be so patient, I was getting pissy it was taking me a little while longer than I expected to drop the oil pan today while doing my cam swap, I'd have gone bonkers by now but all good things come to those who wait I guess....

It was planned for quite some time, but with modern technology it just snowballed a little more than normal. There ended up being a lot of one-off parts and fabrication to make everything fit within the confines of "stock". There was a list of goals to shoot for and we may have been able to pull it off and obtain those.

What is amazing is the technology, knowledge and skill that is going into SST. I can only imagine what it will sound like, much less what it will run like.

That rumbling you hear is not thunder it is just SST.

Thanks for all the positive comments you guys !!! That is what drives us to push a little harder.

Wish we had an exact date for further pics and videos, but it is one of those "it's done when it gets done" things. Getting the diff is a big thing too.

The funny thing about the rumble is that a TT car (unless under boost) is actually QUIETER than stock since the turbos are taking energy AWAY from the exhaust. We may end up taking the mufflers off if it is too quiet.
...but when you are under high boost, well, let's just say it is not longer stealthy.
