Camsports Micamcorder Greg Carter's PRO AUTO CHEV COBALT SS JOINS 6 SECOND CLUB
Micamcorder Camsports 720HD-Saturday 4th of December 2010 saw the Pro Auto 2010 Chev Cobalt SS, powered by a 667ci Steve Schmidt Competition Engine, break the track record once again by running .373 seconds under the National Record with a 6.986 second pass @ 198.67 mph or 319.72 kph.
A brief history of the Pro Auto Cobalt prior to the new Record setting pass:
Pro Auto proprietor, Greg Carter, debuted the new Chev Cobalt SS drag car at a testing session on Wednesday 27th October 2010. While there were many other cars of great interest, it was the debut of the stunning Pro Auto Cobalt that had jaws scraping the ground. The brand new Jerry Bickel built car, straight from the USA, is absolutely a work of art and showed early potential with an easy as anything 7.38 time slip on its very first shakedown pass.
The Cobalt was then unveiled to the public at the opening meeting of the new Drag Racing season at Perth Motorplex on Friday 29th October....and went straight under the Track Record and the National Record with it's first qualifying passes, with back to back 7.16's and 7.14's. Greg then reset the Track Record on Saturday with a time slip of 7.009 seconds at 197.80 mph (318 kph).
Well done to Greg, his sponsors and all his team:

Greg Carter's 7.38-second debut
Greg Carter's 7.38-second debut.
This is Greg Carter's immaculate Chev Cobalt. Powered by a massive cubed 1400hp Steve Schmidt race engine, Carter's new car debuted with an 8.82-second early shut-off run, followed by that amazing 7.38 first full track pass.
The car was built by Jerry Bickel in America, and has thrown down the gauntlet at Super Sedan in Australia as the car to follow this season, as it has run as quick as 6.8-seconds in America.
Well done to the team on presenting yet another great car to the Western Australian public.

In only his 6th full pass Greg's still getting a handle on his new car and dialled in a 7.10 to break out on 7.009 @ 197.8 mph/318.32 kph. The Jerry Bickel SS Chev Cobalt 2010 model with a Steve Shmidt 667 ci delivering 1435 hp is a nice piece of gear....This is filmed using the MI96HD Mini camcorder on a 4" tripod.
Truck Pulling Engine Bad Attitude 3 - Steve Schmidt Racing
We have been running a Steve Schmidt engine for two years and the results are incredible. In 2007 we had 13 wins in a row on our way to winning the ITPA Two Wheel Drive Championship. The horsepower, reliability, and service is unmatched in the industry. It is so simple just tell him what you want and he delivers. As long as there is a Bad Attitude III there will be a Steve Schmidt Engine leading the way.
Cobalt SS/TC Sedan vs LS1 Camaro SS - Cobalt WINS!
The cobalt has catless downpipe, trifecta tune, charge pipes, hoosier dr's. The Camaro from what I was told buy the driver was full bolt ons, so Im guessing the normal intake headers so on and so on.
