Here is a quoted email from Frank Spena, on the testing of the Bat-Jet Camaro:
The ice storm changed things a bit and I had a chance to go testing tonight. Both bodies performed very well. The body with the pin in the back, like normal on a T-Jet, did a best lap of 6.28. The body with the pin forward did a best of 6.22. I could run both consistently in the 20's. The pin forward body was not only slightly quicker, but also more comfortable to drive. One corner in particular seemed to eat the pin back car. It is the decreasing radius corner. So I give the slight edge to the pin forward/post back body. That's what I would choose if I had to race it, but there is really not much between them. My next step is going to be taking some weight out of the top of the nose, and more weight out of the tops of the doors, one body at a time and see what happens. I will do the body with the regular position first and see if I can get it to beat the other. This was chassis #234, the one Bob gave me already boiled at the Shootout. Medium weight front, yellow rears, one black T-Jet, one red Tuff-One mag, (matched.) Red wire arm. Best laps for a JL Camaro on the same car tonight were high 6.30s. When I am done with them I think your Camaros will be quite competitive.
