    Official The Stars Fell on the Alabama Grand Prix 2018

    I think the fools in the Camaro might show up again. Horrible track for our car but it sure was fun last year! And great exercise for the arms!
  2. We had a blast, especially starting the race in 49th place and moving up to 10th in the first 30 minutes! Lost fuel pressure and after changing fuel pump(wasn't the problem), re-routing fuel lines(vapor lock? NO!), and filter(no!). WAIT, what is THAT in the old filter? See? Crap, that's fuel cell foam!! Pulled off new rear window, tank cap and started removing ROTTEN foam! Blew out lines, found a new filter in Lake Placid and had a friend in Lakeland bring us new foam blocks. About the time we were ready to go back on track the "lightening red flag" came out. Our car is NOT good on a wet track so we waited awhile for the track to get dried out. From there on the Camaro was flawless. Until I ran out of fuel 1 minute from the checkered flag. The foam was replaced last year but I guess letting fuel sit in the tank for eight months isn't a good thing. I'm a dumb ass... Does anyone know what happened to the fast Camaro that led the beginning of the race? Special thanks to the wrecker crew for towing us in 4 or 5 times !!

    I read that rule and ignored the "chassis" part. Hoping it meant body.

    Rear lexan installed. Wasn't my idea($500) but it looks cool. Speaking of cool, we're not going to be, I'm thinking.. I guess we can install some small brake ducting on each side to get air. At least it's always really cool at Sebring!

    If you're going to Sebring, stop by and say "hello"! #700 Camaro. We're based out of Gainesville.

    What Tire Size Does Your Team Run?

    L78 15
  9. This is what we run with 275 40 17. Could probably go wider but these are cheap. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/vsw-141h7961gm0/overview/

    Maybe we'll try those. We're still running Nittos. They seem to last forever!

    Top car picks for 2018

    Our first car was a Saab Turbo. We ran one Lemons race and burned up the motor. It was pretty quick and handled great. But it was nothing like this: This was our first time racing Road Atlanta for more than 30 laps. After this race we added Bilstiens and 200 tread wear tires so it's a little better now in the handling department. So if you don't care about winning and you want to DRIVE a car, these are a blast! Always on the edge!

    Damn, a 3rd gen bites the dust...glad your driver is okay. I think our "souped up" 305 was faster than the crate 350 we have now but we had to run it at much higher rpm's.
  15. We tried it a few years ago at Daytona when it was raining in the a.m. Lasted one lap and pulled in. Don't even have wipers on the car now.
