Thumbs down The Mod Bug Has Struck

I have tried to resist the slippery slope, but couldn't hold out. I am starting small; I just ordered a Blackwing for it. Next I think some bright red BMR suspension upgrades are in order!!!

Long term I am looking at adding a maggie to her. I'm not sure if going to the extent of a Lingenfelter is the way or just buying one for a local install.


---I don't know how I got the down thumb but it is definitely up up up thumb.

Thumbs up for sure on upgraded suspension and power! Bear in mind that if you add a supercharger you'll be adding considerable weight, and that will change the car's stance and handling.

Before you start, you need to write down what you think your goals will be and be specific. Will you autocross, track your Camaro, drag race, etc. Will your OE suspension be able to handle your Camaro's engine mods efficiently?

If you need assistance, just ask

thanks

Give me a call here at the shop when you are ready to order up your BMR stuff and I will make sure you get taken care of. We have quite a bit of experience dealing with these 2010 Camaros that have the Maggies installed on them since our shop test car has a Maggie on it. If there is anything I can do to help you let me know.

Thanks,
Kyle

Kyle,

I'll be giving you a call in the morning.

Heading out for my first track day May 8th!!!

Now I'm thinking of upgrading my pads before I head out, but which way to go. Daily aggressive (JK, maybe ) driver with occasional track days.

One other question for everyone. How much should I bump up my tire pressure for on track?

Well I just ordered new pads, Hawk HP+. I know there will be dust, but I want the extra for track days. I'll probably order a set of ceramics in the fall.

Once the mod bug bites, you have the itch. The itch never goes away. Scratch it.
