Pedders Verification Camaro Needed in SF Bay Area

I am sure all of you have checked out our Pedders components. GM Racing has and they love them.

I am looking for a first release Camaro to do a TrackII system to verify and document the install. this is a normal function that Pedders USA does. Plus I will use your Camaro for my Camaro install manual. I write all the manuals for installation of all of our components.
You can also elect to use our eXtreme MonoTube 30 way adjustable coil-over if you wish.


thanks
mike

I ordered the RS/SS Inferno Orange, CGM Stripes, shorty headers and orange accent interior. Ordered an automatic, but may switch to a manual with the Hurst. The car is coming from Putnam Chevrolet in Burlingame and have priority #1.

Thanks,
Rob

Awesome!! Keep me informed. You would not believe the changes our systems will make, and yet still offer a great ride.

We obviously have not had the opportunity to do lots of testing on the Camaro. We have had "access" to it, but no play time. But based on Dale Earnhardt Jr. experience driving it, and others, body role is still a really big deal. So with that said, even though the spring rates and suspension travel will be less than the G8, it still will have tons of looseness.


Here is a picture showing the lack of control and excess travel and looseness of the G8. This picture was taken going on the rebound after driving on an uneven surface



I have observed a heavy 60-0 max braking application and the back en lifts just like this, and the front end collapses. Doing our systems not only will seriously improve handling, but will look really good, and also make the brakes work better due to the control of the body role and movements


I had a chat with the editor staff of Motor Trend on this picture because it is totally shows the G8 in a negative way. I also challenged him to do a comparison our Pedders G8 and the BMW M5. Our Pedderized G8 will out handle, out acceleration a $105,000 M5 at less than half the price. The only advantage the M5 may have are their brakes. But with the potential Brembo package that will be available, the braking will be close to the same. If we put the new style 6 piston BAER brakes and oversized rotors, we will be equal or better. They will consider it they said.

thanks

2 days. It is about a 15 hour job or so. If you want to see the process, you can see it on one of my webshots folders here:
