Thanks M8! My goal was to reduce the unsprung weight but this ended up better than I thought!

I gotta give an "Atta Boy" to Alex at "Speed Depot"! He and his crew did a great job to have everything ready to go when I got there and even helped load my OE tires in the car! Yes, you can carry 4 tires inside (but you can't see outta the passenger mirror! LOL!

GREAT JOB TERRY!
I am almost done with a complete front splitter and belly pan. A 67" wing is on the way... if I ever get the downforce numbers I am looking for. For those that questioned the need for brake ducts, I melted a set of HP Plus in 3 hours of track time. My front rotors were about 1200 degrees. I am consistantly in the 800-900 degree range now.

My ducts are located behind the lower grill and are 4" x 8" with a 3" primary tube necked to a 2" to feed the rotors.

Nice wheels! Can I ask what they are? I have to say there are VERY few aftermarket wheels I've seen that I thought looked much if any better than the stock RS wheels (my opinion) but I like these.

I'd love them more if they were dished outward instead of in, but I still like them. Guessing they are lighter than stock?

The wheels are from TSW they're called "Nurburgring"s. They are wayyyyyy lighter than OEM!

Check them out here:

Nice! I ordered the same wheels (20" TSW Nurburgrings) a little while back, but with the silver faced finish. Kinda making me wish I got the bronze! lol

Weather here sucks, so the new wheels\tires won't be getting put on until spring.

Awesome job man, I really like the new look and I look forward to seeing how it all works at the track.

Make sure to come by so I can out those sweet brake ducts IRL!

You coming to the track tomorrow night?

Thanks Erik... it is starting to come together!

I might come down and watch...but... no brake pads yet... and I need to finish the front splitter before I track it again.

After a "Spirited" run back from Daytona, I gotta say, these tires and wheels really really help the car! It handles soooo much better and it even seems smaller/lighter than with the OE stuff!

I'll tell ya something else, the change in size changed the final gear ratio for the better! This is the gear this car should have had from the get go! And even driving a bit faster than normal, I still only lost about 1 MPG...

I'm really looking forward to getting it out on the track!

I'm pretty sure yours is my fav. 5th gen so far. And that means a lot coming from me, someone who normally hates huge spoilers (though I completely understand the "why" of it all). Just something about yours doesn't look out of place at all somehow, I love it. All of it.

Keep it up!

And I thought I had a bit too much wheel gap.... They make the Camaros run on 18s in Grand Am racing!




Hmmm... wonder what rearend ratio they use at Daytona?

Beawulf's Camaro is awesome! And I'm not really hatin' on the GS Camaro because I know what it can do, but small wheels on this Gen Camaro look really odd.

Here's a couple of parts for the splitter mod I had to make. I couldn't find any long struts anywhere so, I made some...

I broke a strut fastener at a buck forty. Took it off to do some duct mods. Car has CGM strips...

Another box...???!!!

One step closer to the track day! I'm gonna try these on the front first. We'll see how they balance with the OEM rears.

These are new EBC "BlueStuff NDX" pads (NOT the old formula). They are supposed to work well on both the street (low temp) and also on track. The testers were mostly in the UK and used these on STIs and EVOs and gave them very good reviews. BTW, those cars use the same caliper as the SS so there is availability for the Brembos... and, as usual, probably not for the V6 yet.

And, unlike other EBC pads, these do NOT have the "break in" coating on them. They are "scorched" to provide a shorter bed in period than before. One thing I will probably do to them before I install them is to "chamfer" the leading edge of each pad to reduce the chance of squeeking brakes! ;-)



While I was cruising around the pits at Daytona during the 24 Hour weekend, I stopped by one of the vendors and picked up these:



These are used to monitor the temps of the calipers. They only show the highest temps achieved but, I have a few to to use for testing the ducts.
