Was in for an alignment, so I took a couple shots. I didn't have pics of the sways and coil-overs. So I'm glad I was able to snag a few shots while the car was up.

A few pics of Bot at the Mid-Atlantic C5 meet setup by Edog. A very successful meet with a huge showing of over 40 C5ers and their awesome 5th gens.

Thanks for the VIP treatment with parking, Edog. That's Edog to my left and SS4FUN to the left of him.

Thanks Pierre for the compliment. Yes those are the eibach sways and I could tell a big difference from stock. I've rode around on the various settings as well. Tightest one is pretty stiff and I would only have it on that for the track. I'm on the third and it handles great and still rides smooth.

I only did the sways and coil overs. I was going to do a bit more, but I'm quite happy with how it feels, handles, and drives I decided to hold off.

Yes, the wheels and tires are a staggered setup. The wheels are 20x9 front and 20x10 rear, outfitted with Micheline PS2 tires, 295-35-20 in the rear.

Just a quick update. BOT is going to be featured at the Camaro Nationals. It will be inside in the SLP Booth area amongst their newly built releases. This is pretty exciting. I'd like to send an early thanks to SLP and Roger for inviting us.

I will definitely take some good pics for this. I will also be registering to have the car judged in the competition. We'll see if BOT is trophy worthy. This is my first time entering into a car show as well as being at the Camaro Nationals. Should be fun!

Hopefully I can meet some more C5'ers there!

Thanks Kronix - I will definately take a bunch of pictures! If you were back east, we'd have to get ZL1EATR right there in the lineup with us!
