In the series of pictures you can see various ride heights as the vehicle loads and unloads. It is hard to tell which is closest to the at rest ride height.

I need that in my life!

On brake cooling: there is none on the normal SS and I assume this will be no exception. It's difficult to pipe cooling from the dam to the brake plates.

The name plates and badges gets taken off to make it seem like they're trying to hide something. Everyone who has seen a current model knows this is, indeed, some form of Camaro.

The ride height is quite tall. My assumption is that they mounted up those massive wheels and kept the springs the same from the SS. The production model, assuming it has those wheel sizes, will most likely be a more proportionate height.

...summary: I want one. Petition to convince Stevenson to give all their drivers a Z28 for the street?

It definitely looks to have a lower ride height. I want that spoiler though! Not too big, not too small, just right!

Of note is the more prominent rear spoiler, in conjunction with the front splitter. Both would be necessary, in concert, to maintain/improve moderate downforce with limited drag penalty, for true high-speed stability. Good work!

I like the look of the four tail pipes too. Also, didn't see any indentations where our current "gill slits" are behind the doors. Can't wait to see one without all the camo...

Oh oh...looks like time is getting closer and closer for the retirement of my current camaro and turn it into a garage trophy.

I think an SS and Z28 in the stables will look good together.
