Bear Trap: Grudge Racer James Mironís Wicked 1968 Camaro

By Brian Wagner July 05, 2018Jumping straight into the upper echelon of grudge and no-time racing isnít something you just do, but when you get there the sacrifices are worth it. James ďMotorcity JimboĒ Miron has put his time racing in the grudge world and his 1968 Camaro is a car that demands some serious respect. With the car complete Miron is ready to challenge all the best no-time racers in the country.Every weekend growing up in the early 1990s Miron would head to the dragstrip with his father to race the familyís 1967 Camaro and loved it. After a few years of racing hard the family stopped going as much and soon time at the track faded away for Miron.
After he got out of school, Miron began his own quest to start racing and relive those fun times he had at the track growing up.ďI got a job and started to save some money to build my very own race car, a 1991 S-10. At the time I didnít have much money so I did everything myself, from the roll cage, ladder bar suspension, and even the paint. Eventually, I sold the truck so I could buy a Mustang and began just racing in grudge events in my area. I went from being a local kid with a whole lot of used up junk parts, to upgrading what I had until I finally owned a nice up-to-date piece of machinery,Ē Miron says.With plans to become a top contender in the no-time and grudge racing scene Miron knew he would need a car capable of handling some big power. He also wanted a car that would pay tribute to his father and the time he spent around old-school GM muscle cars.

“I decided to build the Camaro because my father had owned one all of my life and I always loved the way they looked. The decision to build the car to this level was made because I had to have a good chassis to compete at the bigger grudge events. I really outgrew the stock-style suspension Mustangs and just needed this time of chassis to race at the next level,” Miron explains. To execute his plan of dominance in grudge racing Miron enlisted the help of the team at Race Car Specialties (RCS). Starting with a blank canvas RCS built their own stock-style front suspension and added one of their own custom 4-link rear suspensions to the chassis that uses Menscer Motorsports shocks. The car still maintains the stock wheelbase with a body that has a steel roof and quarter panels. Chad Ricks from the Kandy Shop laid down all the paint on the Camaro to make it look as fast as possible. Powering the Camaro is an all-billet 5.3-inch bore space engine from Reher & Morrison Racing Engines. Miron says the car has four stages of Switzer Dynamics nitrous onboard that work with the EFI system. Controlling the engine functions is a full MoTeC EFI setup and putting the power down is a Rossler three-speed transmission along with a billet Neal Chance Racing Converters lock-up torque converter.
