2012 COPO Camaro: GM's Baddest Factory Camaro Ever! - HOT ROD Unlimited Episode 6
It's the baddest factory Camaro ever! The 2012 COPO Camaro is a pure drag
racing car built to compete in NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock
classes, and in this episode of HOT ROD Unlimited, we go behind the scenes
within General Motors to learn about the car, watch some radical burnouts,
meet some of the people behind the COPO, see one of the engines on the Dyno, and visit the
Performance Build Center where the engines are assembled. At the time of
our visit, the only COPO was the very first one, known as the Proof of
Concept car, serial number 001. GM was not ready to release engine power
numbers, drag times, or vehicle weights, as class details are still being
worked out with the National Hot Rod Association.
COPO stands for Central Office Production Order, a process that was used in
the '60s for fleet managers to order unusual combinations of options.
Dealer Fred Gibb figured out how to use the system to get GM to assemble
cars that were never intended for production. He ordered 1969 Camaros that used a derivative of
GM's 427ci, all-aluminum ZL1 race engine, and bought enough of them to make
them legal to compete as production cars in NHRA and AHRA drag racing.
There were 69 ZL1 Camaros built in 1969, and
Chevrolet is building the same number for 2012.
The new COPO is a pure race car, not able to be licensed for the street,
and is available with three different engines: a 427 that's naturally
aspirated, a 327 with a 2.9L Whipple blower, and a 327 with a 4.0L Whipple
blower. Buyers have the option to own all three engines, all stamped with
the serial number of their car. The COPO is gutted of all the street
equipment, has a rollcage, and the original independent rear suspension has
been replaced with a Strange 9-inch rearend with 4.29 gears and a spool.
Other aftermarket parts include Strange struts and brakes, and ATI
Powerglide transmission, an Aeromotive fuel system, Bogart wheels with COPO
engraving, and Hoosier 30x9.00-15 radial slicks and skinny front drag

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.
Formula One V6 turbo: 2014 Rules Explained
Transforming Formula One: 2014 Rules Explained: CGI Clip
A new clip from Red Bull sees Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel explain
the 2014 Formula One regulations -- which are arguably the most complex the
sport has ever seen.
At the start, thousands of car parts simultaneously assemble around Dan to
form the RB10.
As Dan races to catch up Seb in his RB9, the World Champion's car becomes
transparent while travelling at full speed. The film then presents a visual
sequence that shows the 2014 regulation changes taking shape and coming to
life, as Seb's car transforms into an RB10.
As well as providing information on the new technical changes for 2014, the
clip also presents a unique view of the technology at work inside this
year's Formula One cars.

Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
