Default Texas Takeover!

It's almost 2014 and I'll be pushing the Texas area, so be ready for some fun in the next few months!
I have my brothers 85 Cutlass I'm working on and my buddys have a few G bodys including the GN, Malibus, and of course El Camino's!

I got my new camera mount to catch a few hot runs and to beat up on a few rides when mine comes back from getting race ready.
Hey Terry, let me know when you're ready. I want to get some footage so Carlos has an official DVD!

Very cool. My old setup was velcro and an Easy Share. Kept flying across my right shoulder at launch. Finally stepped up to a GoPro, but after 8 months I still can't figure it out.

I didn't have the money to score a go pro, so I found a cheap mount on Ebay.
I wish I had a go pro, since mine isnt waterproof nor does it have a remote.
It'll have to do until I get a GP. If you ever want to get rid of your GP, let me know!
I have a few sweet go fast parts for trade!

I took the camera for its first test run on my buddys GN and it held up to the wind and torque for almost an hour. I cant wait til my ride is finished so I can beat on these ricers again!

Thumbs up Future member

Here's one of my buddies in his 87 SS!

After pulling the engine back out this past May,he's got his Beast back on the road with all the kinks worked out and even more goodies!
(I had my camera mounted on the dash but I need to find another location to mount it to reduce the shakes and the lanyard tapping the camera. Maybe on the windshield next time.)
This thing can lay down some serious power for sure and THIS is why I love the 383!
I wont give out the specs of his setup,but I can say the builder and the shop he uses REALLY prove why I'm a FIRM believer in the ALL MIGHTY 383 when the engine,drivetrain and suspension is set up right!
The side exhaust wakes the dead for sure,but he's promised to pamper it at Belton..



Here's some video's!

If that GoPro wasn't a gift from my wife I would gladly give it to you. Seriously. But I think the girl would kill me. I have seen them mounted on everything from the nooses that the Gatorboys grab alligators with to Wayne Carrinis wallet when he buys a two million dollat Ferrari.

The only time it actually worked well is when I let my bud Shawn throw it in his ten second Camaro SS. He stuck it to his ps t top ans sure enough at a buck thirty the t top came flying off. The scary part of me is I can pull a DuraMaxx out of an 09 2500HD in three hours but my vid/picture posting ability is linked pics off of my own Boto****it and Spacebook. Getting on the older side I guess. But I am heading out to RacePBIR.com now for a track rental. Bringing the GoPro and....wait for it...a 23 year old bud that cannot only render vids, but can send me useable links to make it all happen.

NOn-Cheers
NOn Woody

I'll score a GP sometime or even the Drift 720 or 1080 HD camera. Those are good too!
It's easy to learn them. Just plug it in and drag and drop on YouTube. Takes me 3 mins..
Hell yeah! I can't wait for some good videos!
