Cool run.
What was the ET?
In the water, did you shift from 1 to 2 or 2 to 3?
In the shut down area, what did you shift to?

Do you normally run down the track @ xxx MPH with your helmet not strapped on? O:) [-( [-X

Yup, the vibration is probably from harmonics in the car. I expect most all of'em do that unless you got some really good dampers mounting the camera.

good eye there ken.i really need a new helmet, the strap does not function correctly. i promise you it is on my list to replace.i do have a pair of gloves i keep in car.
just something about gloves i do not like, even at the hose i am guilty of not wearing. i am a very safety conscious person.

planning on machining an aluminum mount for camera as the plastic one is a little flimsy.

was a 9.85 at 136.12(motor only)

2-3 shift only for burnout, never 1-2. second gear at top of end of track

its an 8970 timing box, for the nos

let see, i think i responded to everything.

appreciate it guys

I am right there with Ken and Barry on the helmet and gloves part, WE can never be too safe with these cars, and with racing gas and nitrous that goes x2 on the articles of clothing bigtime in this world. ;-)

Not to pick on you at all, but I have witnessed many guys not being tight in there cars!!!! O:) That just blows my mind that these people just don't care about there family at all! Sorry, but when that car hits the wall, your gonna be so brused up from them belts being loose and the chin strap, heck, what's the point of even wearing the helmet if you hit the wall as well, as that helmet is going for a ride when you impact anything!!!! I'm done =; Just looking out for your safety...

Camaro looks to be a fun ride and effortless to drive, Good job on it =D>

trust me, i hear you. working in the industrial sector were safety is always top priority, i understand the importance of our ppe. even at home i am always a big proponent of ppe.
guess i was somewhat complacent with my safety gear in car. i am always looking for ways to improve safety for myself and also for the driver.

car drives like a cadillac since the installation of strut front end.
