What we were able to accomplish with the Lingenfelter L/28 and Bruce Raymond's Camaro blew peoples minds. I never liked the additional nose weight of a blown Camaro. You can see that in the handling differences in the ZL1 and 1LE. You see the benefits of less nose even more in the Z/28.

In the Z/28 you also see the need for more RWHP. The 1LE is no different and needs more power because it is a bit heavier.

This 'guy' is new to the Chevy retail world, but has a great history in NASCAR. They want a show case car. Short of a brand new Z/28, the 1LE is the best place to be in a 5th Gen Camaro. Especially is it is headed to the FEST.

I would throw my hat in that ring but I doubt I could comfortably keep my end of the finances...

Glad to see you here though Pete.

Short Story

The money is in Sub-frame bushes, Radius and a 32mm Z bar. Take the air out of the rear with 220035s, but leave the front alone
I just stumbled across this thread....I actually have 220032s in the front and the 33 in the rear. Are you recommending I go back to stock front springs/height and install a set of 220035s in the rear?

I did run the car with the 32/33 and is was faster.....but that could also be due to the seat time I had in between the first weekend when the car was new to me with less than 1000 miles and going back later in the year.

No. I would leave them in. They drop the CG slightly and the drop in the rear is critical. In a typical track car rake is highly desirable. The Camaro is a bit nose heavy and not go-cart like in weight. With the rear dropped there is less weight transfer on braking and that make for a more controllable Camaro.

Thank you!......From the other thread I am tempted to put a ZL1 front bar on just to get more rotation!

I still have the stock bars front and rear. No other changes to the suspension or bushings at all beside the 32/33 springs.

I will stick to this thread...and make one last post in the other that you don need to respond to there..

Thanks,
Matt
