Mike Dusold & his MS3-Pro powered 67 Camaro are in search of the Optima Batteries Crown

Mike Dusold is a champion in the making!  With two events completed in the Optima Batteries Search for the Ultimate Street Car series, he’s off to an early points lead and being pursued heavily by some serious Corvette competition.  Click the image to view Chevy Hi Performance’s video of Mike in action at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway…

“Mike Dusold’s Camaro started out as a kinda rough project that got really, really cool, over time. Then Mike started getting really good behind the wheel of it at autocross and Pro-Touring events, and then Mike decided to build it into a Camaro like nobody else has ever tried. We’ve heard that a million times, but Mike actually delivered.”  Chad Reynolds, BangShift

Travis Nordwald takes 1st place in the ITA class at the Enduro on Sunday.  Running an MSPNP ECU

Congrats to Travis Nordwald and team! 

Travis sent in some in-car video footage of the event (get’s more exciting after the warmup lap, about 4:00 in)

 

 

Here’s a few pics Travis sent in from the 2010 ARRC Enduro event Sunday 11/7/10.

Travis Nordwald and co-driver Dave Volante (the blue #38 car) took 1st Place in ITA and forth overall, running an MSPNP ECU that we tuned out for them here in house on our DynaPack 4000 dyno.

2008 American Road Race of Champions

November 7-9, 2008 – Road Atlanta

Here’s a few pics I snapped at the 2008 ARRC Enduro event last Sunday 11/9/08.

Mac Spikes and co-driver Myron Perry (the yellow car #4 car) took 1st Place in ITA and forth overall, running an MSPNP ECU that we tuned out for him a few days before the event.  Out of a field of 52 cars this is quite an accomplishment, congrats to you Mac!  (and for the 4th place in the ProIT as well!)


macspikes_ita4_arrc08enduro-800What did Mac have to say after this event about the MSPNP in his car?

“The car had gobs of power through the whole RPM scale. TQ was like a V8!”
“Jerry was able to get us a stable 8 horsepower increase tuning the MSPNP to my racecar.”
–Mac Spikes SCCA / NASA Miata racer

 


Joe Tenney, ITA #16 also running an MSPNP ECU, was running in first place about mid-way thru the 3 hour enduro when electrical problems (a loose connector under the dash) sidelined him while he was lapped about 15 times.  He and his co-driver searched out the problem, found the loose connector under the dash and got back at it.  Unfortunately it was too late in the game at that point, however Joe was turning some very impressive lap times, had he not had this problem it’s very likely he and Mac would have had a 1, 2 finish in ITA.  The big question…. who would have had #1? ;)

Joe did pull off the #6 spot in the ProIT race in ITA on Saturday.

(unfortunately dying camera batteries stopped me from getting any pics of Joe’s car)

Chris Schaafsma, who recently picked up a MicroSquirt EMS he’ll be running next season, qualified second but then after a spin landed the #5 spot in the main ARRC event ITB class.
