Chris longs for a Camaro in ESP..... I think the ESP crowd 'brings it'!
"First time in 2 years that SOB beat me! I still don't know how he did it. In fact, Burns doesn't know how he did it. We rode with each other on each of our runs, and we STILL don't know how he did it." Cheater-Pants 11/5/07
"Dude, we went all the way to Oscoda to install a diff...There's a photoshop picture out there of us getting married. I think we already have the reputation that we're not playing with a full deck..." Cheater-Pants 4/28/09 Burns Garagemahall Services: Tire Mounting
I do actually, sort of. It would be fun to build an ESP Camaro, but that would go against my current plan for my next car. The money vaccuum of building an SP car isn't real attractive to me right now, just the end result is.
If I did do an ESP Camaro though, I'd have a hard time deciding between an early '70's car (because it would be cool, and have a bit of parts compatibility to my Vette) or one of the early SLP SS fourth gen cars (more competitive). I didn't care for the front end makeover the fourth gen got ~halfway through the model run. I'll confess, I've browsed ebay and craigslist looking at Camaros from time to time. 1969 Corvette #42 BP 2002 Z06 #42 SS

Yep, that was my primary reason for getting an LT1 car and not the LS1 models. I'll wind up in ESP sooner or later... once I have a bit more seat time and cash! 1997 Chevy Camaro Z28 - RTR/TFS
I'll stick to CP. There's nothing like showing up to a clients location in a Camaro with a Rollcage and no interior. 1994 Chevy Camaro Z28 #96-CP 2006 Chevy Malibu Maxx SS #96-RTF/GS 1989 Honda Civic CRX Si #96-STS ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 2012 Tom Hallock Award Recipient 2012 Detroit Region C Prepared Champion 2012 Great Lakes Division 2nd Place C Prepared Champion

Missy and I are running on old tires (Burns reset) and the Z is underpowered (Kevin reset from 2010) plus the sun was in my eyes and a dog ran out in front of me....and this isn't the best alignment I like for my unique and fast driving style....plus I don't run well on the north lot of the Silverdome because of the magnetism of the north pole plays with my variable valve solenoid and I can't enter VTEC mode where I would like. And I bogged the launch on my 3rd run which would have been my fastest too...if not for the bog and the cone I hit......
Just kidding, the Z is locked, cocked and ready to rock! 59 runs on the Hoosiers, so no excuses there. Had to drive it all week on the street to season the front rotors and burnish the rear pads, the extra 12lbs of rotating weight removed isn't hurting. I was surprised that the car has a little get up, it's been getting faster with more miles on the engine. And the Bilstiens Marcus hooked up are outstanding on the street and even better on the track.
I am going to drive a little less conservatively this season, I was watching some video of Strano and it has inspired me to push the car more.....who knows how it will turn out.....lucky for me, my brain resides in the body of the best driver, so it's a good platform to start with.
