That'll get you down to 37xx. Swap out the driver seat for a Pro street Kirkey and that should put you below 3750lbs. I plan to spend the $2k to swap the front and rear brakes to the aerospace components pro street brakes which saves close to 70lbs, a lot of which is rotational weight. I was at 3700 lbs in my old camaro (m6 car as well) with no weight reduction besides full exhaust, and wheels at 1/4 tank and no driver.
Weight posted was how it went down the track. I've been running it at the track the way I drive it every day. My race weight is 3740lbs when I pull stuff out. My plans for CamaroFest will be open headers with extensions to try to get it into the 3690 range. Th400 also helped my weight reduction since its lighter than both the tr6060 and 6l80.

Well it's time. I know my battery is fairly old so I'll go ahead and replace since I was planning on it anyway and go from there.

Did I see correctly on Facebook that your car got stolen? Any luck recovering it?

With the circumstance and the nature of it all, hopefully those idiots didn't screw up the trans. I bet that threw them for a loop when it came time to shift.. all the best, Bo, glad you are ok and hope your Camaro isn't jacked up!

Cars can always be replaced. The main thing is that you're doing well. Good luck with everything Bo.

Have you thought about a ZL1 bumper? Looks like those jerks definitely messed your stuff up!

I'm not much on upbadging. ZL1 bumpers on an SS aren't my thing.

Sorry this happened to you Bo. As long as it’s not a sixth-gen bumper, do what pleases you.

I want to apologize in advance, would you show us the rear end where they hit you? As I was listening to the radio show interview you, you saw them coming on fast and braced yourself. How did the car take it? If not that’s completely fine and understandable.
