    Just got back from the track:

    Ran my fastest trap speed of all time (84 was my previous best), but I was a .1th off my quickest ET. We were at Baileyton, I don't think the track was prepped very well. I don't know if any of y'all have ever been there, but it's an 1/8th mile track in a guy's back yard, best as I can tell. I hit it too hard off the start, spun and wheelhopped a bit. 2.103 on the 60'. It cost me, too. Here's the whole slip:

    60 ft - 2.103
    1/8th ET - 8.737
    1/8th mph - 86.70

    If NoHood would ever send me my wheels, so I could mount the drag radials, I feel pretty confident it's got at least an 8.4 in it. If not an 8.2 or so. Guess time will tell.

    Is your car stock or modded?

    It's got an SLP air lid and a Corsa cat-back. Other than that, all stock.

    I love that RS. I've got a real soft spot in my heart for the old third generation Camaros. Don't see 'em running as fast as yours was very often, though. You must have done a good job with it.

    You have a nice mph for having soo few of mods. Sounds like your car runs strong. Now get the 60' down, and you'll be in the low 8's easy.
