Bad Penny Camaro Performers Magazine Costa Mesa Goodguys Autocross 09
We ran our 68 Camaro called Bad Penny at the Goodguys Costa Mesa autocross March 09. Still needed an alignment and some front parts, but she managed to win the Editor's Challenge event. Also had a brake issue that is now fixed. Tires are Kumho XS in 275 front and 335 rear - 180 treadwear.
Bad Penny Camaro chassis dyno of 402 LS2 - 483rwhp and 472rwtq
We finnally got a chance to chassis Dynotune our 402 stroker LS2 engine at Westech Performance. We had competed in the Optima Ultimate Streetcar Invitational and wondered why our power felt down, also the car ran bad at part throttle. Turned out we were running on seven cylinder due to a broken plug. Replaced the plug and picked up over 80ho and almost the same amount of torque. Should be a "bit" faster now.

Pulling into the driveway after taking Hayden for his 1st drive. The radiator cap needs to be replaced hence the coolant dripping onto the ground.
