Harrop Driving on Pedders in AU!

This is the Holden Commodore VE owned by one of the Harrop guys from AU, he's running the car at Calder, he's running the Pedders Justice Kit on his car. The Justice Kit includes the new Supercar Coilovers with Remote Reservoir and separately adjustable bound and rebound.

The car ran well with no issues – we left settings as recommended apart from 23 clicks out on rear rebound.

I will let you know how it runs in Sydney next week after the event

Basic fluid dynamics tells you that the larger the volume of oil, the smoother the action, control will be. Comparing a 46mm diameter disc for surface area to a 52mm disc we find there is 27% increase in surface area. Couple the 27% greater disc surface area with remote reservoirs the size of Coke or beer cans and the volume of oil is increased by more than half. Couple this HUGE amount of oil with 30 independent bound and 30 independent rebound adjustments and you have race car like control over your 5th Gen suspension. There is nothing better you can buy for your 5th Gen Camaro. Make your Camaro a true Supercar with Pedders Supercar coilovers. Pedders Xa and Supercar coilovers have an extra wide clevis for the 5th Gen Camaro. The design of the clevis allows for greater camber range and the increase in track reduces understeer inherent in the design of the 5th Gen.

very similar, the VE is Zeta, and the Camaro is Zeta II
Camaro is a beefier front but the rear is nearly identical

Thew coil rates are different on the VE as well along with the front clevis and upper front mount.

For those of you who are not familiar with Harrop they are a premium Australian performance parts brand. They do brakes, differentialss, blowers and more. As you can see from the pictures, thier setup is vaguely familiar.

We did this on the Xa coilovers. The harrop car will be on the Supercar coilovers and should be even better.
