I've always been a fan of ARH headers, but had not experienced the axle back part yet. Super nice and will be my first choice next time around. I don't believe that short throw Hurst shifter was stock either... Another nice touch...

There are a lot of things I don't buy into until I experience it, and I never thought I would notice that much difference just driving a car slowly over to the track, but the Pedders suspension jumped out and grabbed me immediately. I really had forgotten about all the extras on this car and was in such a hurry to get ready for the track I wasn't paying much attention. It literally jumped out and screamed "wake up you have a killer suspension setup here". I moved the steering wheel back and forth to get a better feel and then got real excited about how this thing was going to do on the track.

...and it did not disappoint. This car is totally transformed from a regular SS. Each lap I took just got faster and I never felt out of control or even lost traction. Never hit any cones either. Quite sure my times would go much lower with practice (38's). This was my fist time ever on an AutoX course. I've been driving 5th Gens from the beginning and never have I experienced handling like this with no fear to push it even harder. The car was dyno tuned afterwards and I was going to drive it again, but rain canceled that. Bottom line is the car handled like nothing else I've driven fast. Hopefully soon I'll get to try the ZL1 and compare. WoW what a run ride...

I believe Pete Justice was the 1st person I indicated my thoughts of trading up to a ZL1. We were discussing the Super Car Coilovers on the phone and my decision was either go with a Justice Package or trade for the ZL1. All I can say is I'm sure glad I hadn't driven this car before making my choice. I probably wouldn't have a ZL1 if I had...

The RPO is by far the best dealer package out there. Great Job Rodgers... and thanks again for letting me drive it...
You lucky rascal. I can't even imagine how sweet the ride is but I am sure it was or rather is a fantastic setup. Maybe in 30 years the RPO Camaro will be all the rage. I am thrilled that a Dealer is following in the foot steps of the Yenko's etc. of the past for the next generation of drivers. That is really impressive and special to me not to mention smart marketing to me.

Well said sir. I have two details that need to be sorted on a ZL1 and also need to get down to H-Town for other business. I'll give you a call SOON

Looks like an AMAZING car, and I hear nothing but good stuff about Becky and Rodgers Chevrolet.

That is an expensive car with installation of the mods. If I had more money than I knew what to do with...I'd spring for it.

Becky can you move Rogers Chevrolet to Massachusetts please.
