BMR announces Project TriloG

Have you ever wanted to see exactly what a product can do for your car? Of course. Who wants to buy something without justifying it's benefits? Companies can claim that their products do what they say they will or we can just show you. That's what this project build is all about. Follow us as we take our 2010 Camaro SS in bone stock trim through various bench mark tests, establish a base line then perform various suspension and chassis modifications to the car step-by-step, re-testing throughout the process. Along the way we will also document the installation and testing of various other components that may become necessary as we push the OE component beyond it's capabilities (ex. - clutch, brakes, etc.) or require more power to properly test our products.

.....The Fifth generation of Chevrolet's F-Body is a very solid platform equipped with an equally refined suspension design. On the other hand, it is a very heavy car and still loaded with compromises. Stamped steel suspension links, GM's notorious 4wd fender gaps, and limited suspension adjustability are only a few potential areas for improvement. BMR products have always been about functionality and we will attempt to prove with this testing just what BMR products can do for your 2010. To properly test all aspects of this platform it is our goal to exceed 1G in three different areas - acceleration, handling, and braking....

Wow!!!

It's like spaghette toes on our rear ends, they are allowing way too much movement. :(

Noticed a little flexing in the lower and trailing arm, but nothing like the toes!

When can we expect the lowers and more footage.....

I want to see what the toes & trailing arms I got from you are doing without duct taping my camera down there!

The blog is all being done in real time so it will be a while before we get to that stage because we only get the track once a month for testing. We do have another track day coming up this month but we will still be on the stock suspension testing with more power. We installed a Magnacharger on the car and want to see what 550 RWHP does to the stock suspension before we put the good stuff on!

I'm wondering what stiffening everything up in the rear suspension will do to the axles. I'm sure the travel takes a HELLA load off the axles, so what happens when we eliminate or lessen it? Aftermarket axles aren't cheap at all. I know you have to pay to play but the everyday guy that takes his car to the track one or two times a year isn't going to want to shell out $$$ for new axles. Hopefully we can find a happy medium here that will give us the best traction and response without breaking shit.

I know what you mean...nobody wants to hook so hard that they start breaking drivetrain parts. On the other hand, nobody want to lose a race to a Mustang GT500.....lol.

By the way, BMR has teamed up with Strange Engineering to develop a solid rear axle conversion kit for the 2010 Camaro. Although this kit is not intended for everyone, this will be an option for anyone who breaks their stock axles.
