New slicks and Trick Springs installed....results
The day after the ArmDrop Live at Cayuga. The car ran great and was leaving well. I lost against a faster car on Saturday in first round. Today, Sunday I want to fine tune how the engine comes up on the trans brake and try some different rpm launch set points. The front end work made such a difference and now that the body is raised I can run those big slicks I bought instead of using them as paper weights.
Test Driving 1967 Chevrolet Camaro 502 Big-Block Restomod - Fast Lane Classic Cars
I thought you'd like a look at this awesome 1967 Chevrolet Camaro. This beast is powered by a ZZ502 Big-block crate engine, that's pushing out 502 HP and 567 LbFt of Torque. All that power is being funneled through a Centerforce clutch, to a Borg Warner T10 four-speed, and then back to a 12 bolt rear with 3.55 gears. This car has all the performance you need and then some. It's also a beautifully restored car, from the ultra slick black exterior with SS trim, to the completely restored houndstooth interior. It's also equipped with front disc brakes, Eagle Alloy wheels, and BF Goodrich ZR speed rated tires. This car goes, turns, and stops amazingly well. I hope you find it interesting...thanks for taking a look!

Tim Vs Harry
Tim (in the red Monza) is racing Harry in his new 1966 Mustang. I still talk to Harry because he has a BBC under the hood.....lol. I raced Tim 1st round and beat him out, but he bought back and now is in the finals. It was a good race, but someone got a sunburn!

Racepumps Performance Results
I bought a Racepumps mechanical "piston" fuel pump for my big block Chevrolet because I didn't want to use an electric pump and because the fuel capacity and delivery was within the range I was looking for. These specs were on the manufacturer's website. Initial performance was acceptable but I had not used the car at the drag strip. At the drag strip I had to wait in staging lanes for an extended period which would simulate stop and go traffic for street driving. The pump developed vapor lock and you know, you cannot pump vapor so no fuel pressure. I was very disappointed. I have a stock 68 Camaro gas tank with the pickup modified with two 3/8" steel lines pulling fuel out and silver soldered to an AN #8 steel fitting. This AN fitting connects to a 1/2" fuel line running to the pump at the engine. One thing Racepumps could do is manufacture a finned "Heat Sink" that would slip over the pump body to dissipate heat in the pump. This heat sink certainly could be made over size and simply trimmed for different chassis. A snug friction fit with thermal compound in between the pump body and heat sink surfaces. I plan on putting a sump on the gas tank and install a 1/2" vent instead of just using the 1/4" vent in the gas cap. Also will install a by-pass fuel line back to the tank from the regulator. I hope to go again in a couple of weeks with the mods to the fuel system. Keep you informed.
