nope... it's a specially treated silicone impregnated kevlar material used to improve rotational acuity and lateral stability of the bushing in hard cornering/acceleration etc...It's worth .3 to .5 g's on the skid pad...

I got edgeamucated....

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!

quoted out of order, but yes, I am pretty full of it with any response sounding anything like I know anything at all with regards to suspension stuff.... there are springy things and rubber or poly things and if it all works, my car should go faster in a straight line and or around curves...<<< That's it for me...
