We left Raleigh at 11am est this morning, and will be rolling In shortly. Been a long 36 hours.

Tues night we took the camaro out for a final run on less than half it's normal boost, 9-10 psi (~1000whp) to check everything out one last time before heading out at 8am. I went wot in second and short shifted about 7 grand fairly aggressively into third, and heard a loud snap from under the hood, the gas pedal went dead. Pull over, pull the hood off, and the linkage from the throttle cable to the throttle body had snapped off. Sweet.

Carried it to the shop in the am and the guys at rpm made some custom shit up for it that is actually stronger than the original piece. So on the way we go.

We get about 11 hours into the trip and the truck all of a sudden feels like it has a huge stall converter in it. We pull over, trans fluid everywhere. All on the side of the truck, the trailer, etc. Turns out a line to the trans cooler had come loose. Awesome.

We happen to be by two gas stations we could run to, and bought all the trans fluid they had. Fixed the line, filled it up, 35 minutes later were on the way again.

8 hours later, in Houston. It's been a hell of a ride, but I think it will be worth it. I'm getting some sleep then pulling the camaro out. Well see you guys tonight!

Is your camaro the one that was setting off all the car alarms last night leaving? Trying to put screen names to cars and faces.

No that wasn't me. Mine hasn't been off the trailer yet.

That camaro sure was something to look at. The turbo should have a "caution" sign next to it.... possibly with a small woodland creature in the graphic. WOW!!! Too bad we didnt see it on the dyno or track. Maybe next year, thanks for bringing it out!

That Camaro was insane, that turbo could have easily sucked my head in if i wasn't careful.

Hope to see it run next year! Glad to see such a well built camaro

i didnt get any of your txt msg's, i only got your emails, but my friend got a few, i ended up going to one of the meets and as soon as i showed up everyone crowed around my car, but as soon as u were done talking, the cops showed up and on the way out i ended up running the turbo busa on I-10 to the next spot but i got lost alittle and ended up going on a little cruise around houston with the busa and Umesh. Good times though man, wish i lived in Texas tho, next year is going to be even crazyier.
