Well I had to keep telling Moss, "no dude, those are the stock shocks... dude, stop trying to put the supercars in your trunk..."

Being a relative rookie when it comes to a suspension as sophisticated as what I purchased from Pedders... I still know, not guess, but know that the car can do more than I'm prepared to attempt at this point... I knew where the limits were on my car with stock suspension... I knew where to get out of it and when I could get into it.... Not to say I'm a race car driver... but I knew my car...

I don't know my car any more... but... I KNOW it's faster, more stable, more safe, more capable, less sketchy... I KNOW the limits of the car are vastly increased. I don't know where the limit is any more. But the confidence that the car is safe... is higher... if that makes sense.

Gah it's so hard to explain from a rookies perspective... Let me try this...

When I first got THR22 I was afraid of it. Ask Randy. I had never owned a car with any where near 500 RWHP. So I knew the car could get me into a real mess if I didn't respect it. I've also learned that is the nature of horse power.

OK, I say all that to say this....

Yes the suspension was expensive. But on the scale of performance improvement, it is as much as the supercharger was. But in a vastly different way. When I first got the car,being afraid of it, I drove it very moderately. The supercars, sways, and bushings, remove that, "damn this thing is gonna kill me" feeling and gives you that, "I've got this thing under complete control." confidence. Like I said, I know the car can do more than I am comfortable with.

Simple example. Getting on the freeway in 3rd gear was an exercise in throttle control. At any time in the cloverleaf on ramp I could break it loose with a simple blip of the throttle. NOW, I could jump on the gas in the middle of that same on ramp and simply accelerate.

Bottom line, the car is better, safer, more refined.... Complete...

I am more excited to learn how to drive the car now, than I was when I first picked up THR22 from Tom Henry...

Maybe I'll be able to better articulate it the more I learn how to utilize the new found performance increase...

You need to go to an autocross to really appreciate what the suspension upgrade you just did offers. You can shake the car out and see what it has to offer.

Bring PQ for a ride at the AutoX.. LOL

Then again, an Autocross might have you wanting to buy more parts. Hi Performance Tires, perhaps?

You should see my wallet (or lack of one) after all the work I just shelled out for.

5 weeks at the chassis shop, followed by 4 weeks at the auto body shop.

Now it's at the Chevy dealer getting Neutered.. they are removing Onstar and the Airbag computer. My Camaro morphed into a race car..

My Butt has 3rd degree burns. Car is coming out awesome, though!

THEN i'll bring them each for a ride in mine.

The chassis shop has welding going on all over the place.

Chevy dealer has antifreeze, oil, etc. on the floor.
All that stuff will mess up your good tires.

I have 3 mounted sets of wheels for the car.

One set for working on the car and winter sitting (the stock wheels).
The polished aluminum CCW's with Bridgestone RE-11's for the street and if it rains when running at the track.
Then the race set of Hoosiers, also on CCW's.

i finally haz da moniez! (i think...)




i realize that means i gotta get a stronger clutch






...and bigger brakes











...which also means bigger wheels















...and therefore new tires














what have i done?!
ps - and then the car's still gotta get painted (the hood'll still be in primer til then) as well as, somewhere in there, powdercoating the brakes & wheels just to make them look right


pps - and, of course, suspension :(
