After last year, there is no pro stock (class) without it.

well, I am not a big fan at all, but imagine how great this class could be if the manufacturers picked a car and took their crew to the races. They are selling 1000 hp street cars, I can only imagine what they might be capable of doing and really make this new life of the muscle car really sell cars on monday.

Yeah, but at least the vette looked cool. There is nothing cool looking about a 2018 PM/PS Camaro. The older ones in PM are nice looking.

If I remember right, Badder put weight on that vette to get racers to build different cars. NHRA should put weight on 2014 to 2018 PM/PS Camaros. Maybe Chevy PS guys will build a vette or caddy.

Sounds like Troy will be driving a Jose hair dryer and not a blower. At least now Ricky has some competetion.

Sorry about the PM talk in yet another PS thread.

If Elite couldn't make a Dodge work, I don't see how anybody else will.

Dodge could.... if they cared to. And they stopped caring two years before they pulled the plug on J&J.

Watching Pro Stock is like watching grass grow.

I am honestly watching Street Outlaws more and more.

Speaking of Chrysler/Fiat....when the hell are they going to update the Challenger? That retro design has been around for 10 freaking years. That's the problem with retro, once you do it, where do you go after that????

It was looking like FCA was going to axe a lot of or all of the Chrysler cars and just focus on Jeep and Ram. Can't blame them since their cars are utterly abysmal.

The Mustang was able to successfully evolve from the retro design. Camaro sorta did too. Fiat will probably just keep selling the 10 year old design as long as they can until they don't sell enough to be profitable and then just kill it off instead of redesigning it as a new car.

Maybe they are looking at history. I mean, they blew it up after 5 years with the original and you might argue that they should not mess with perfection. What do you want? a four door? a hybrid? a station wagon/suv?
