OPTIMA is Ready for the 48-hour Camaro Build
BangShift.com, Route2Media, and the crew from Ridetech, Lingenfelter, Holley, Gearvendors, Comp Cams, and more, will be LIVE! Monday May 16th to start the build of the 48 Hour Camaro. OPTIMA Batteries is providing all the batteries for this project, including those powering the remote cameras and computers necessary for the live stream. The broadcast will begin at 7:30AM Eastern on Monday, with Chad from BangShift will be hosting and you can watch it all online.
The vehicle they are starting with is a perfectly nice 1967 Camaro that could easily leave a local car show with a trophy. By the time this build is done, it will be have a 600-horsepower Lingenfelter built, Comp Cams-equipped LS3 with Holley fuel-injection, an Aeromotive fuel system, Rick's fuel tank, ridetech suspension, Baer brakes, a Moser 12-bolt rearend, an AutoGear Muncie 4-Speed, a Gearvendors overdrive, ridetech Tiger Cage, Vintage Air, Kicker tunes, BFG tires on Forgeline Wheels, and more.
Once the car is finished, they are going to bring it down to the Goodguys show in Nashville and race it all weekend. How cool is that? We're ready to get them started!
