Thanks Mack, I can't wait to pick up the car once again from Cunningham Motorsports, it's going to be FULL ON BEAST MODE

And as an added mod, I'll be receiving the prototype Pedders Camber Plates, from the BIG WIG himself, Mr. JusticePete I've been eagerly waiting for Pedders to finally come out with the Camber Plates to match up with my Pedders Coil Overs
It's been like driving a Chevy with a Ford logo on it....I thank you Mr. Justice, you are the man and thank you for giving me the opportunity to run the prototype! I'll be getting these powder coated Red & Black most likely, so you KNOW they're PEDDERS

So if anyone would like to buy my Pfadt Castor/Camber plates in like new condition please let me know.

These will be the newest Camber Plates that R & D used to make their production model coming out next month It pays to know the right people!

I've also attached pics of the new Oracle Concept mirrors and you can notice how awesome the field of view is, and all blind spots have been eliminated!! These things ROCK!

And my friend Rick (2010SSRSM6) stopped by Cunningham Motorsports yesterday and snapped a very shaky pic and they already had my old cam out & new one in. Thank you Rick

And last but certainly not least, my new sig by my Jerz Brotha, Chris (xVengeancex28) You also ROCK my brotha!

Thatnks P, Install probably won't happen till after the new year, although it's a fairly simple swap. Pedders forgot to put a part in the box that came Friday, shot Pete an email and he said he'd get it right out. Kind of delays everything or just makes me do twice the work. I wanted to get them powder coated & then CMS do the swap out, since the install is easy, then just realign it. Just par for course, nothing ever goes as planned, so I'll be until I get the missing piece.

Like Leo said below, they don't come with it....But who knows how the stock mirrors are wried up? Is it something that could be modified to these mirrors If there's anybody to ask, it's Jake at Antidote Performance. He's doing some mods to my mirrors, so I'll ask him this week.....You never know?

Thanks lil bro, just wait till I pick it up from Cunningham Motorsports I plan to do a bunch or pics and videos, inside & out. I literally got the car from Wheel Warehouse after the new shoes & rubber, then right to Antidote for stereo & lighting, then the next day drove to CMS. Ryne @ CMS did a baseline Dyno run after the ADM Fuel Pump Module, Cam & Monster catch can install and he said the car was just beastly, and is going to exceed the numbers and this was before he even tuned it. Needless to say, I'm stoked!

Let me find out about modding those mirrors with the defroster from Antidote first....Believe me, the field of vision is 1000% better over stock mirrors.


To all, Merry Christmas & hopefully 2013 is a good year!

Got a nice Christmas present from Uncle Pete @ Pedders!

The R&D set of Camber plates used for the production camber plates coming out in January, and a Bad Ass Pedders NO BULL shirt! Pete & Deb, you guys ROCK!

Now to get them powder coated & installed......It's got end some day right???

Should have the car back from Cunningham Motorsports hopefully by Friday, as the cam & other goodies install went smooth. Can't wait to feel the REAL DEAL!!! Then be on the look out for pics & videos!

Special Out & Thanks to Ted Jannetty of Jannetty Racing for taking the time to call CMS and go over a few questions the guys had about one of his parts. I know it was very hectic right before the holidays and I appreciate Ted taking the time!

Have to report misinformation & it's good stuff, especially for my bros in the cold weather areas. Just got confirmation today:

If you do not have the factory heated mirrors option you can jump power off the defroster to heat the mirrors. We are going to do a DIY once we get a Camaro in here without the heated option.

That's so AWESOME!!!!!!!

Well, someone let the cat out of the bag and I'll fess up as to my latest purchase. I ordered the Hammerhead Stage 2 IRS coated with NitroPlate with DSS Carbon Driveshaft & 1400HP Half Shafts, shortly after the SEMA show. And once I decide on which slotted & cross drilled rotors & calipers I want, this will be the last piece of the engine/driveline modifications for me, besides some cosmetic stuff. I can honestly say I'm done, dear God I hope so!!! Can't believe I actually said that!

The Hammerhead Unit with Pedders bushings that are standard in the HH.









I got mine coated with NitroPlate, in Stealth Black. It's a ceramic coating that's satin black and withstands temps up to 1700 F & is highly resistant to gasoline and all other common “under-hood” chemicals. It's also highly chip resistant., so virtually bullet proof.

Before the NitroPlate is sprayed on my unit.







These were just released this month and they had a special on them before December 15th, and it was an offer I couldn't refuse! One of the many things I love about this unit is it comes standard with Pedders HD bushings & the optional Delrin rear bushing for higher HP cars. The 3 pieces together are as another member who bought the DSS Carbon driveshaft & 1400 HP shafts said they're works of art, and I can't agree more. Judge for yourself.

The Driveshaft Shop's (DSS) 3 3/8" Carbon Fiber Shaft weighs in at a whopping 15.5lbs and will come with a 30 spline end, not the typical 28.
The CF Shaft, pure work of art!




Billet Plates:


Carbon Ends:



The 1400HP Shafts:








Cage Comparison:




So what's a Hammerhead, besides a shark? Well once you start getting up there in horsepower, it can wreak havoc on a driveline. That horsepower will find the weak part of your system, and more often then not, it ends up being the rear differential of the vehicle. That's is what led The Driveshaft Shop and Hammerhead housings to partner together and build the Hammerhead, a 12 bolt independent rear suspension(IRS) for late model vehicles.

The Chevy Camaro Hammerhead IRS which they had on display at the SEMA show, will come available in three stages:

Bulletproof Stage 1
33 spline Eaton TrueTrac for normally aspirated cars. 3.42, 3.55, 3.73, 3.90, 4.10, 4.30, 4.56, and 4.88 ratios.

Bulletproof Stage 2, the unit I got with 3.90 gearing.
Optional 35 spline WaveTrac with lifetime warranty for supercharged and manual transmission applications.
Indestructible nodular iron casting also available for applications over 1000HP, I chose to go with the cast aluminum.

Indestructible Stage 3
Optional solid spool and 9310 alloy “Pro Gears” for racecars only, 4.11, 4.33, 4.56, 4.75, 4.88, and 5.00 ratios.

12 bolt IRS Hammerhead Benefits and features:
Contains 1400HP capable 30-spline axles.
Less horsepower loss than a 9″ Ford.
Large access to gear ratios, posi-units, and even racing spools
Cast aluminum, and available in nodular iron for extreme use.


So now it's just waiting for the Big, Brown Truck to swing by the crib!

Updates coming soon!

Perhaps one of the most modded Camaros? Looking good man! I better see you at the track with this beast! If we can ever swing it we need to hit up a road course together, would be fun.

Haha, I know how you feel. Sometimes it's as if it never ends. I am close to calling it quits as well except for some fun small things, especially do it yourself (DIY) mods. I have other things I want to concentrate on, especially since I want to buy a house with my girlfriend, so saving money is key right now.
