Texas Camaro Revolution 2013 Autocross

We had around 50 drivers at the Texas Camaro Revolution (hosted by the San Antonio Camaro Club) this weekend. Here is a video of the top time for the day driven by my son in a 1LE owned by a pretty cool (and trusting guy) from Black Jack Speed Shop. The 1LE had just been installed with Pedders SuperCars, Sways, Bushings, Camber Plate, etc. Pedderized I believe is the term. The 1LE's owned the day posting top times consistently. Oh and a certain moderator shredded this course too. We had a great event in my humble opinion and I continue to love how Camaro's handle an autocross course.

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next
Track fix.

I'm sure it will get put up soon, if I'm not mistaken, he had a go pro recording while he was running.

Sitting next to his splitter

Here was someone who posted a slightly better time than Tag. in an *ahem automatic V6*, my very own Mrs Synergy SATX. We are excited. TAG runs very well, as do all the Camaro folks who come out for that matter. We are excited to see future AutoXs in San Antonio loaded with Camaro's having some friendly competition. I know we keep putting each other in debt with upgrades...

In the top video Pete says your son ran 44.56 and your video is titled "Deb's 46.8 run", how was yours slightly faster? Maybe a different video?

Either way, nice run, V6 or not. It looks like AutoX is a great equalizer when it comes to engine size if you have your suspension set up for it.

Ah. Let me clarify. She ran faster than a mod named Tag. Which is a huge accomplishment as a) he has an amazing car and b) can drive it like he was pursuing someone who stole it. Wait how is that possible? I need a better cop reference..
