Default 2nd Gen TA running through the cones in TX

2nd event of the year. I got new tires, shocks and adjusted the alignment over the winter and am still getting used to the new limits of the car and I don't want to break anything.... I have a busy May for this car; my 16yo son will start to autocross and I have the CAM invitational, a Camaro club event and the Pro-Solo events followed by the Power Tour....

The video is shot from my phone running the Track Addict app, when played through the app, the video has the speed and G's transposed on the display- does anyone here know how I can transfer that to youtube for sharing?

Pontiac 400 bored .030" over, mostly stock with a nice cam. For exhaust, I have the stock manifolds that are port matched running through true dual and into Texas Trans Am Mufflers. It's a street car that runs power brakes and AC.

It's been a long time since I posted in this section. We've enjoyed a great summer! The car has done great but, not without it's share of "old car" problem! That's what it's about though. I have especially enjoyed getting my 16yo son out driving the car through the cones and watching him learn and grow. We've been to several local events, the TX CAM event, PPIR Optima event and had a blast in them all. For being a mostly stock 2nd Gen TA, we are both putting up some decent times and improving.
