I'm interested in your total package, but money is always an object. Bushings come first, then coil overs, then sway bars, correct? Ball park how much for each step and how noticeable will each step be in daily driving and racing. I went autocrossing for the first time with my 2ss and am hooked and then 4 days later went to the drag strip. I know one suspension is not ideal for all situations. Would I have to setup the suspension for the one I plan on doing most, most likely, or how would you advise me on this. Plan on doing more autocrossing and road racing. Thanks for any info. Josh

This does in fact work. I played with the WD40 Camaro some months back and put the rears on the fronts to see if it works, and it does.

thanks

I don't really plan on drag racing though, I probably will just to see how fast the car ends up but I'm much more interested in autocross, road course, and ovals.

Excellent Aby !!!

Take the time to look at this - http://www.ridetechtv.com/video/8590
It is Mary Pozzi who is the 11 time SCCA Autocross Champion at the Del Mar Goodguys show. I grabbed this from a different site where Mary hangs out. She is very cool and an awesome autocrosser.

I checked out the video from Mary Pozzi. She did a really great intro job.

Where is she located?

Just found this site and very cool. Thanks for the compliments on the RideTech autocrossing video and it was fun talking "work" with Ty.

As for the question about location, I'm about 100 miles south of you.

Cheers,
Mary Pozzi

Hey Mary -

Thanks for stopping in. A few posts up, Aby, wants to start learning how to autocross, so I figured to give her a link to the best.

We are having a big fifth gen Camaro get together next April 16-18 including autocross, so your tips are a big help for so many here.

FYI: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=46574

What suspension mods have been done?

Enjoyed the vid Mary, welcome to our little hole in the wall

I think there's a young lady on here that will be wanting to bend your ear.

That's cool Steve. You are not slouch either ...and Penny is one bad-ass ride.

Hey JusticePete, question with Forgeline, I was told by forgeline I have to run a spacer in order for my wheels to fit the Camaro, the wheel size is 20x10.5 with 295/35/20 Nitto INVO. Due to the "reverse mount" of the 20x10.5 wheel, if I want to eleminate the spacers, I have to run 10" wide wheel. I know your Pedders Camaro run 19x10.5, did you have to add spacers? I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and sacrifice 1/2 inch just so I don't have deal with dumb spacers. By the way, I was (past tense) going to run 20x10.5 all the way around. The other option I was given is the step lip outter but thats not the look I'm after. Performance wise, yes the step lip would be better. But I'm also going after the look and the option of step lip outter would make it look "cheesy". If you don't have an answer, anyone? Trying to figure out this wheel and tire combo is a PITA and its becoming very fustrating.

Forgeline did a spectacular job with the fitment. My wheels do not use spacers.

To make sure I reply properly, tell me if you would be running a spacer in both the front and rear, just the front or rear?

I was informed that the fronts will need spacers not the rears. So now I'm utterly destroyed that I cannot run 10.5" up front but settled with the 10" wheel in the front. We are suppose to have a discussion with Forgeline monday on 10.5" fronts. But I'm ok with 10.5" in the rear and 10" in fronts and that was my original plans. I just have to run a staggerd wheel setup of 295 and 275. This wheel and tire combo is a nightmare and only slept 4 hours last nite trying to figure out why we need a spacer. Still makes no sense, since you can run a 19x10.5 and I cannot run 20x10.5 setup. Its hard to visualize, need to see a wheel in order to understand more clearly. Probably something simple.

the offsets of the front are in fact different than the rear. There are no spacers on the Pedders Camaro. Both front and rear are 10.5 inch wheels.

I wonder why yours works and not mine. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say its due the 19" wheel instead of 20". Does it really make that much of a difference?

I think it is a limitation of the thickness of the hub material. There just in't enough so a spacer is used to push the wheel out a bit.

I just got word on monday that they could do it and it was going to take an extra 2 weeks. I was like AWESOME. 2 weeks is nothing. Thanks for the info, though.
