Cars in action !
« on: February 28, 2014, 10:16:14 PM »
Anybody have pictures (present or past) of their cars at the strip? Have to be more than just a handful here who enjoy/enjoyed "dragging it out" once in a while. Fun Runs ? Smell of burnt rubber mixed with race fuel?

Nice launch !

Camaro Racing Group ???  Sorta these car's heritage. Old Reliable, Grumpy's Toys, check out his interview when he makes a pass in his 67 (you tube) COPOs? Not to mention road racing. Summit Motorsports (Norwalk) is 20 minutes from here--Thompson a little over an hour. Can't help to be bias. Come on Gary, scent of that 110 octane fuel burning through uncorked headers probably would have you pulling gears ;D Longest winter ever up here--chompin at the bit for summer! Blow a little carbon out of that 10sec Anglia.

Whats that mean? I put that ZL-1 motor in it to race. If you went running, wouldn't you put running shoes on?

Only made a couple runs, no traction at all of course, 8.24sec at 88.727 mph. On street tires, leaving black marks the whole 1/8 mile, and granny shifting my original M20. About equal to high 12's at 110 mph 1/4 mile, which is right in line with the track test from 1969 of a stock ZL-1 Camaro. Motor is bone stock ZL-1 with headers and full exhaust, 91 octane and dialed back timing. Stock suspension.

Not really pictures but here is a link to a few runs at the strip.
A few of us went to the Junior Drags National Finals and at the lunch break took the kids for runs down the track.
I dont know who had the most fun.

I have other vid if you wanna check em out.
Best run on a serious day was 12.35 at 111MPH on the 1/4 mile

Cheers
Wayne

Looks like fun Wayne. While I am enjoying the weather out here in California during this winter, I have to wait until july when I go back to Indiana to drive my Camaro. When is it going to thaw out back there??
