We’ve been Parting Shift delinquent for the last two weeks, so we wanted to get back into the groove with a good one. This helmet cam video shows Doug Lambeck, racing his A/Stock Automatic Camaro at the NHRA Winternationals. The car is a real mover and with a super-tuned 427, can run 10.0s all day long. It also like to sky the front end lap after lap.
Yes, the car is an automatic, but Lambest is knocking that shifter up or down manually. Stock eliminator cars are not allowed any aids like air shifters. So while it may not take the skills of pulling the four speed handle, making the shifts while the front end ia impersonating a space shuttle launch takes some chutzpah!
Press play below to see a great driver pulling a great wheelstand. The best part is that you are seeing what he is seeing and it ain’t much when the nose climbs!
