Now, if only a certain Camaro were to be able to make some passes before fall is over.....

It just seems my luck this year has been bad for the SS. :( 

Issues I have now are:

1. Over heating when sitting in slow or stopped traffic. Need to relocate my trans cooler to get more unobstructed airflow through the radiator.

2. Cylinder imbalance. Going to weld on Vbands and see if that solves it.

3. Trans has been shifting jacked up ever since the 6L80. If it's not something in the tune, then I think the TCM is bad. 

Takes time to resolve this stuff. It's a good economy and folks have money to burn, so the mechanics are all busy with other cars right now. It probably be next race season before the SS is done and making clean passes on DR's.

When the economy is good, mechanics are busy upgrading new cars.  When the economy is bad, mechanics are busy keeping old ones running.  :tired:

Would love to see it!  Unfortunately, the Shelby will likely not be doing so.  Clutch started slipping last night trying to make a light and I believe it finally decided to leave the building :lol:

Danged if it didnt hold JUST long enough to put together a couple awesome nights of racing tho!  Ive known I was on borrowed time with it but when it continued to smell yesterday despite the long highway trip home from the track and multiple trips around town I knew it was coming.  Sure enough, bout a mile from home it slipped.  Slipped again when testing.  

Oh well.  Ill start pinching pennies and eventually be able to make something happen.  If I could sell the Wagon, Ide toss a clutch in the Shelby, replace the trans in the 66 and be able to do a little work on the Truck buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut...the Wagon is so good!  Driving it again this morning was a treat.  Grrrrrrrrrrr.

Ide snatch it up in a heartbeat but combined with the 13/14 clutch master (which makes the pedal heavier) I dont think it would be all that great for DD status.  If I was just racing it/driving it on the weekends I would likely hit you up!!!
