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.





Bad Penny Camaro Run Through The Hills Autocross
Our '68 Bad Penny Camaro traveled back east to Pigeon Forge, TN, for the fifth Run Through the Hills event. Friday was a 120 mile cruise in the rain that included the Tail Of The Dragon where over 300 turns are compressed into 11 miles. Was fun without wipers! On Saturday we lucked out on the rain and ran the autocross. Here Camaro Performers editor Nick Licata flings my '68 throught the cones. We all got faster as the day went on and Nick ended up with the fastest lap time in the '68 while I managed to take 5th. I still need more practice!





Tire Rack Tire Test - Testing the New Extremes of Extreme Performance Summer Tires
http://www.tirerack.com/a.jsp?a=HP5&url=/tires/tests/testDisplay.jsp&ttid=1 18 Extreme Performance Summer tires are not ordinary by any standards. Designed to bring race tire-like performance to the street, today's Extreme Performance Summer tires are capable of delivering ultimate dry traction levels on par with yesterday's dedicated track tires. All this while still providing longer treadwear and more reasonable road manners than any track tire could ever deliver. This year there is a bumper crop of new Extreme Performance Summer tires with new products from Bridgestone, Kumho and Yokohama. Watch how these new tires performed.
