Thanks Ters. Did not see that icon. Sucks getting old.

Some testing we did on Henk's Camaro last weekend.

That's one very quick Camaro! I always thought the pulling to one side was a feature of LS diffs but not really sure as to why, would be interested to know if there is a specific reason.

These big-block powered cars can be very temperamental. The car is still very loose, but that will improve with incremental suspension adjustments and the nitrous programmer settings.

On the previous run, the car broke traction at about the 330ft mark, and Henk shat himself and lifted. We let some air out of the slicks on the next run, but she again lost traction, but he kept the peddle down.In his own words "that bitch is not gonna get the better of me" (or he doesn't like being teased for lifting :lol: )

On the last run we put some air back into the slicks, tweaked the settings on the controller that work much better. The scary part is he is only on 50% spay at the moment.

Here is my car doing it's PB

Another noob question. In theory, if Tarlton were at sea level, what time could a 9sec Tarlton car do there?

Think Tarlton is approx 1600m (5250ft)
