I drove a Z28 camaro at speed for some distance at night across missipppii, when we stopped for a break, we checked the engine and the exhausts were red hot. My first experience of that and I was well impressed :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Good, thats how i fell foul of the class regs on Batmobile. I cut too much of the original wing away for Mod Prod, so it ended up sports libre.
