I won't actually believe it exists until I can see it in person and take it down the track!
It is actually a mirage. Hence "SST" the middle S does in fact stand for "Stealth". You don't really see it coming or going, you just feel it.

Hey, if you see it before I do can you send me some pics... At this rate, the first time I get to drive it may be from the shop to the entrance at C5Fest2.

All of us have been waiting too long to see Bruce's Masterpiece.

we need the fest to hurry up and arrive so we can see the SST.

It will probably be hard to get near it to take a picture.. as Everybody wants to check it out.

It'll be the most photographed/drooled on car there...
I expect it to be Sensory overload..
It will make for Awesome Camaro Car porn.
Thanks for the kind words. Hope it doesn't look too pornographic. May get banned.

Heck we had a piece of it "attached" to the front of THR22

Well...
your car was a little lighter from leaving your tires in the Parking lot..
And then some. US1 has a little extra rubber on it too.

Bruce,

wait until you see your axles in person... OMG...

I just got back from the shop playing with and looking at all my parts to install.... OMG, the Axles are absolutely huge.... I ended up with the DSS 1400 HP rated axles, and they are simply amazing... the rest of the parts are cool, but I still can't get over the axles....you could drive a battleship with these things...

GTA is actually keeping secrets way beyond the Camaros - and he's pretty darn good at it.

Don't know as much about the DSS 1400 axles sounds like they may be somewhat similar. I am sure you can use them as spare baseball bats... I do know that the ones Chris did specifically for the SST are definitely in the ridiculous category.

Soon is a relative term. I'm a geologist, I deal in geologic (deep) time. "Soon" is meaningless. Give me a date, dammit!

Bruce, put it this way, I've seen outdoor ashtrays that were smaller than these axles...

Well, got some preliminary data on dyno numbers from a "sister" engine build. It is a little less radical in some areas, but even so Tom said the early numbers are above their best runs with the Alien 427 TT motor so we expect this one to run pretty well. Based on the data it looks like this motor will get well over 20 mpg and still make big numbers. The full run is tentatively scheduled for 3/1 so hope to have some more concrete info then. Definitely getting closer. The GForce differential and Outlaw axles are all installed. Just waiting for a few "special" pieces for the driveshaft.
