Was at Portsmouth Chevy and set the alignment and corner balanced the car. Checked underneath to make sure everything was tightened and in place. Alignment is set to Pedders race car spec's.

Slapped a dealer plate on the car and took it for a 5 mile blast up the highway.. Everything is perfect! No noises or vibrations. Tracks perfect! I am very happy with the changes and improved setup.

I have a test and tune at the airstrip this Sunday with my SCCA club - Playing with the Hoosier race tires and dialing in the shock and tire pressure settings.

Looking forward to seeing how the car does this weekend!!!! I am excited!

Car worked awesome at the autocross test & tune yesterday!

I averaged 54.XXX runs in the AM, 57.XXX in the afternoon.

most people were running 50 to 52 seconds in the am.. 52-55 in the afternoon.

Tire pressure settings I tried didn't have any impact. Will still need to fine tune the setup, but it is within striking distance of every other car (except for some of the pro's and modified's) in the club now.

Running the test scenarios (slalom, increasing or decreasing slalom setups) - the Camaro behaved very well. Under-steer was non existant like in the past. Car tracks very well and is behaved. I could use a lot of throttle and you could rotate the vehicle with throttle steer.

All in all I love the handling changes! This is how the car should feel!

The ZL-1 rear bar is a MUST for anyone that wants a 5th gen Camaro to handle properly!
