Nice little run up to 100. Sounds good, too. What exhaust do you have on it?

Well, I can't tell the year (it's obviously 99-04 just by the wheels) but I'll bet a hundred grand that it's the LS1 motor.

figured it would be an ls1. im not really into vettes so i dont knwo the body styles for the years. but i know the motors. only think that sucks is you can but a ls1 camero. which yes is slower but if you change the cam in it then the motors are identical and the camero runs faster. lol chevy screwed up one of those years and made the camero faster thne the vette. so they changed the cam in the camero to make it slower. lol i think thats how it went.

How did you film that? I've been wanting to do that for a long time, but I never put in rollbars and have nothing to mount a camera too.

Mine's in the garage with another blown clutch. . may go Spec 3 this time.

I have a camera like that too, but I tried to hold it between my chin and my chest. . as soon as I hit the gas, it was gone. lmfao I'm gonna have to try the two-sided tape deal; that's perfect, you can see the HUD.

Nice ride, thanks for the vid. .
