Congrats Darth Emma :headbang:

What started out as just another testing session escalated quickly into a record breaking test session. When we arrived at the track this morning, we were all worried that the low car count and cold weather would not lend to a great test session, but we needed to get Bob Williams' (owner of AllPro) license passes so we decided to brave the cold.

The first hit off the trailer wasn't bad, Bob ran a 9.08@154.. the pass wasn't clean, and we knew we needed to check some things. A quick check proved that a plug wire was bad and after Tom Willing and Jared Greybiel of IPS Motorsports changed the plugs and the bad wire went back up.

Pass 2 was 8.99@156, a couple of quick tuning changes by Patrick Barnhill of PTP Tuning and back up for pass 3.

Pass 3 was 8.79@164, now we knew that the record was going to be broken... a couple of quick tuning changes and back up for pass 4...

Pass 4 was 8.68@165, capturing both the ET and MPH records for IRS 5th Gen Camaros... a couple of quick changes and back up for pass 5...

Pass 5 was 8.56@166, and we decided that would be enough for today... we started to pack up and Patrick says, let's do 1 more!... we were all game, so the guys packed the chute and got the car ready for 1 final pass...

Pass 6 was 8.47@168 and the car went back into the trailer in 1 piece ready to go out another day.

There is still more in the car, all of these passes were with 1.4x-1.5x 60's and we feel that the car will do much better than that, but because of today's goals we didn't want to push the starting line... we just wanted to get the license passes and capture the records.

Next time out expect to see great things.

Congratulations to Terri (Darth Emma) Car owner and Bob Williams (Driver)

Also special thanks to Stas, Owner of IPS Motorsports for sending out Tom and Jared from the shop and for all the work done on the car.
