I've done no research, so I know nothing on their quality. I was just mentioning it since he mentioned DSS in his earlier post & they went for less than half the usual cost last year at that event. At that price, if they're better than the stock ones, it's still a deal. Having an early M6 V6, I have the same rear end as you, but I don't have to worry about putting enough power down to trash mine & if I was my undersized tranny would be the first to go anyways. If you look at the ratings for the M6 V6 tranny, it's rated for less power than the V6 puts out from the factory.

That's a hell of a drive to maybe get some axles. Don't plan on going but if I have nothing going on it might be a fun time at least. Doubt it though, I still want to get my car painted before C5F4 and have money for the fest and hotel there. And I have to buy atleast one "souvenir" .

Could you explain, I haven't really searched much on their products and have never used any myself.

I can only go off of what a very close friend's exp. He has a car that is well over 700rwhp, and drags it all the time. He originally bought a DSS 9 inch, axles the whole damn set up. He bought the 1400hp axles, and destroyed 3 of them while racing. That started his displeasure with DSS. He dealt with Frank alot. He got tired of the 1400hp axles breaking. His car isn't close to that, so why were they breaking? No one could figure it out. Then the 9 inch started breaking. I can't remember everything that went wrong with it, but he got sick of having to take it out fix something and then install it again. DSS will fix most issues, but if you have a shop install stuff then that can get expensive. He got in touch with Gforce and basically sent the DSS to them and got a sponsorship and whole new gforce 9 in set up. He's had it for over a yr now and not a single issue. Plus Chris the owner of Gforce is a great guy and will honor the lifetime warranty gforce has no questions asked. IMO Gforce is just a better company with a better product. Their products are built to last. I'll never put DSS product in my car.

I've been going since it started. I have a buddy with a 2002 Z28 who moved from up here & lives in the city the show is, so I visit & we take the cars to the track.

Ok, so everyone knows about the mechanics fender guards when your working under the hood. Does anyone know of a company that makes custom ones that i could put on the window sills of the car for car shows. Just that one extra thing to put your logo on and keep idiots with belt buckles from scratching anything.

Recently Ordered my 2013 2SS. First Camaro since I traded my 1980 Z28 w/ T-Tops in for a Silverado Step Side Mark III some 20 years ago. Before that, I had a '68 Camaro I sold due to moving from Philadelphia to New Port, Rhode Island. Looking to get with like minded drivers...

Took a test drive last Thursday, 2SS / RS Package, Manual w/ Hurst Short Shifter... Fell in love. Ordered Friday 5/17/13.
