    ***April COTM***

    Thanks again to all of those that voted for my Trans Am this month. Had some great competition this time around (and a little luck).

    As many of you know, I have nicknamed the car "Slowass." I get asked a lot why I would name it that, seeing as how it has dyno'd 531RWHP all motor. It comes from the amount of times I have had to answer the ET vs. Dyno numbers question. They simply don't match up. Dyno corrects, track doesn't. Car get raced at 5800 feet above sea level, so it is much 'slower' than it should be. Therefore...Slowass.

    Short rundown of the mods....
    TSP 402 (eagle crank, lunati rods, mahle pistons)
    TSP "Giant" cam (248/254 629/622 113)
    Patriot Stage III heads (milled .020")
    Mamo ported FAST90
    Stock T56
    TTII's (street)
    ProStars (track)
    Strano springs with Koni shocks
    UMI LCA's, panhard, and adj. torque arm
    SFC's

    I try to give every opportunity to people to come through on it but it just didn't happen this time. First time this has ever happened. I want people to win that want to win and are willing to stay on top of the threads and know what's going on. Sorry to hidalgo but the show must go on as they say.

    Congrats Luos.

    Can I enter my car even if it currently sits on jack stands and may be missing 2 cylinders? Could get a sweet shot with my tool box in the background.

    I was hoping the other guy would come through honestly.
    I mean...he did win. Just didn't get the required stuff in on time.
