You can't have a relocated battery without a on off switch, that's a big one cause most over look that

Cool...I just met the guy via my new neighbor and she told me he wants to go..he's an older chap that prolly doesnt go to the track much.and from what I know his camaro is stock so im sure you'll hand it to him...I know its a silver SS but not sure what year...plus not sure if he has a helmet or any track experience but I told my neighbor to tell him to get ahold of me..

Experience is everything, I went last week for about 20mins and Some guy in an 06 gt stock besides a tune couldn't get traction with 275 tires, I can get traction on my 235s with my mods and my car runs good to, I've seen corvettes go mid 13s hahaha

They are dropping the trans and they are sure that something came loose or broke in there, so it's going to be covered by warranty, I'll be there next weekend >

wish i could go. hopefully i can go atleast one time this year. i am rookie at the track. but i have spectaded hundreds of times. i have just never had anything worth taking down the 1320. plus it would be nice to meet some of ou guys from the other side of the screen. if you guys ever make it to 41 i will go even if my car isnt ready. food luck everyone.

hey steve. i had to order a small piece of 2 x 1/4 flat. it was only like 10$ or something. so you dont have to worry about giving me anything. but my guy at work said whenever he does our next steel order he will throw it on there. so whenever that is, we can do your whenever you want. if you dont want the driveshaft loop than we could do it even sooner. all i ask is that you buy the beer! i got materials covered
