16 Year Old Girl's 11 Second Camaro!
Alex is one lucky girl, not only does she have an amazing family that has
helped her build this beautiful Camaro, she was able to take a
whole week off school to race for 6 days straight across the midwest on
Drag Week 2013. Not only is her car beautiful, but it's pretty damn quick
too! She ran her first 11 second passes on Drag Week this year!

Best Tips for Breaking in a New Camshaft
http://www.horsepowermonster.com -- The
first few minutes of operation will determine the long-term survival of
your flat-tappet camshaft. More agressive lobe designs, stronger
valvesprings and changes to the additives in modern motor oils makes a
"wiped" cam lobe much more likely than in the days of classic muscle cars.
These are a few very important tips for properly breaking in your high
performance flat tappet camshaft.

The motor mount adapter plates used in this video place the engine one inch
too far forward. You need the adapter plates called the "One Inch Set-back"
plates. They'll place the engine and trans perfectly so that you can use
your original driveshaft without modification. They can be found on eBay
for $60 shipped.
