I'm running the Forgeline GW3R in a 20 x 10" Front and 20 x 11" Rear. The tires I'm currently using are 285/35R20 in the front and 315/30R20 in the rear. I currently have Toyo R888's on the car but I'll be switching to Michelin Pilot Super Sports in a few weeks. It is dropped about 1" lower than stock at the moment.

Kind regards,

Oh thanks for the specs! So this stance is very doable with just lowering springs if it's just lowered by 1".

That is correct and I'd suggest going with the Hotchkis springs if you're looking for a 1" drop or the Pfadt springs if you want to go 1.25". Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions. Thanks for checkout my build thread and have a great day!

Kind regards,

I just bought a set of forgelines the same model and size as yours, and have the stock 285 front rubber from a zl1. Do you have any rubbing issues on the front with the 1" drop and the 285's? Awesome vid and cars btw, I think yours is the only gen5 with Gw3's at least for another week or so.... Could you pm me a price on some recommended springs to achieve the same drop? ....thx. I'm in Canada so shipping to T1S-0E8

We appreciate it!! I haven't been in this thread for a minute!!! The tow hook is a very important mod considering the lack of a hooking point up front! What mods have you done to your Camaro?

Nice! I don't have any rubbing issues until I try to run 2.5* of negative camber.. Then I have to use a spacer to push the top of the tire out a little. The trick is to get the correct off-sets. I've got the Pfadt Gen II coilovers on my Camaro currently and I have a set of 100% refurbished Gen II's for sale if you're still in the market!

Long overdue update!!!

We've been working hard on new and innovative parts for our Stage IV Track Spec Package!!! We're proud to be the first to install a 2014 SS/Z28 hood on a 2010-2013 Camaro with the ZL1 front fascia!!




I also installed the ZL1 diffuser along with a 3" Magnaflow ZL1 cat-back!!





It sounds pretty wicked with our Stage III N/A camshaft package!!


We installed a DeWitts radiator which in turn wouldn't work with the Airaid CAI so we opted for a Roto-Fab system. This set up keeps the car cooler at the track and the radiator is very nice!!!

I have literally added 15+ other items so I will go through and update this thread. What do you guys think?!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

Jordan, i bought the CSF radiator a while back and was wondering how it compares to the Dewitts. I havent installed it yet, gonna do that in Jan when i go twin turbos. dont run a cai since im Centri at the moment and obviously wont be when i add the PT6766s.

Built this car for the street and want to keep it cool at the road course when i finally finish it. The intercooler im going to run will be the 1300hp unit from procharger and is only about 12.5 inches tall so it should leave plenty of airflow for the radiator. So, should i sell the CSF and go Dewitts or keep it as is. I need the best options, not really concerned with saving a hundred bucks on the cooling.

I was thinking of adding fans to the front of the radiator as well as the factory fans in the engine compartment. So, basically pushing air thru the front of the radiator and the factory fans pull the air on the engine bay side. Would this help keep the car cool on the road course running my boost controller dialed way back to about 7psi?

This is a great and informative thread for those of us who are interested in modding for road courses. I'm only at the beginning stages of mods, having done CAI, Tri-Ys and retro chamber cat backs.

It would be nice to see what parts are needed for different levels of road and track performance.
