    First off let me thank Mike (MWilson) and Chris(CMitchell) for coming out to help. this has been a long time coming and im sure ill see much better times with more practice. Mike helped me out with some rookie mistakes and Chris was kind enough not to come rub it in my face (thanks Chris).

    The first run was Chris and I. He beat me a new one and i got thoroughly pissed about a crappy 13.5.

    So pissed i went back right away for a solo run and got a 14 flat.

    I let the car cool off and go over some key things with Mike. I went back for an all motor pass and Chris stomped all over me again, with me getting a 13.6.

    Still pissed at my crappy time, i let the car and me cool off, went back in line with Nitrous ready, and a poor lil Monte Carlo lined up next to me. I musta been in the zone at the start cuz i came out haulin (for me). I forgot to shift to 2nd from all the excitement, and still came in at a [email protected] i knew i coulda done better if i was leaving better and shifting right. I even get fix the water pump pulley that came off right as i made it back to park, lost the belt too.

    Well here are some pics and vids, plz excuse the commentary from the wifey, she means well and i love her support. Camaro ran pretty good for a Daily Driver.

    Had a good day Paul. I enjoyed it. It just takes practice, and thats something I need a lot of. My car was bad off I should have been in the 7.40 range in the 1/8 and 11.60 rang in the 1/4.
    That last pass you made ROCKED!!

    From your listed specs I'm sure it has more left in it.

    I still have yet to crack 12s with mine and it should do it all day long. Between wheelspin, breaking rear ends and crappy carb tuning the best I've done so far is a [email protected]

    It's enough to piss you off for sure!

    Cool! Get your PCV hooked up though, you don't want to be making WOT runs with that disconnected
