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.
