Pedders track 2 XA or PFADT camaro road racing kit stage 5?????

Which kit to go with? Both are around the same price. I'm looking for a track handling race car and occasional drag. It is driven on the streets also. Dont know to much about our suspension just looking for best setup for my car. Thanks

I can't comment on the Pedders set up but I can tell you the Pfadt Stage 5 is incredible. It is not a collection of random individually designed parts, they have taken the black magics of science and math and used them to engineer a killer catalog of parts for these cars that are all optimized to work together. It will work exceedingly well for the kind of use you are describing. If you are looking for "the best", that would be it.

Pedders Track 2 XA supercars! I love this setup. I know a huge amount of R & D went into this system. Tough decision!!!! Do the 305s on all 4 corners while ur at it.

We have installed both brands and both kits are very good.We ran the Pedders set up on our Camaro and the Lignenfelter L28 Camaro last year for the Optima events and they performed very well.I don't think you can go wrong with either brand.

When we came out with the 305/30/19 wheel and tire fitment, some considered it too radical to succeed. They even laughed at our development Camaro as we shared all our information with the Camaro5 community.

Kind regards,
Now the 2014 Z/28 is running Pedders 305/30/19s fitment

Back in 2009 Pedders ran a solid 27mm front sway bar. The 2013 1LE is introduced with a 27mm solid front sway bar. The rear is still only 28mm, but the Camaro TEAM had to leave something on the table for Pedders

Pedders writes a a Book on 5th Gen Camaros. The next thing you know the OE sub-frame bushes get upgraded. Pedders still advocates sub-frame bush upgrades and the ZL1 comes with new and improved sub-frame bushes. We still advocate sub-frame bush up-grades. Watch for another improvement sub-frame bushes with the Z/28.

In January of 2010 Pedders installed and tested CTS-V front brake calipers and rotors on the Pedders USA Camaro. In 2012 GM introduced the ZL1 with... wait for it... CTS-V brakes.

As you can see, Pedders has been a step ahead on the development of fast 5th Gens. We have run in the OPTIMA Invitational since 2009. There has never been a current generation Camaro, Mustang or Challenger with a faster road course time. We'll be back again this year. Any suspension company that wants to be known as fast will have another opportunity to beat Pedders. This is Déjà vu all over again. I said the same thing last year and the year before, and...

Caution: Test driving any Pedderised vehicle can be dangerous. Pedderised vehicles have been known to induce suspension envy and sleepless nights filled with longing. Before test-driving any Pedderised vehicle, check with your banking and accounting professionals. Pedderised vehicles are known to induce credit card bills and reduced bank balances. There is no antidote. Only genuine Pedders can cure Suspension Envy.

I just had the Pedders Pace Car package installed and I am loving it. It transformed the car. Not sure how it compares part to part with the Pedders system you're looking at but in addition to the parts and performance the customer support from Pete and Pedders was amazing. Can't go wrong with Pedders!
