***LG Motorsports Gen5 Camaro World Challenge Race Build***

Hey guys,

LG Motorsports is about to begin on a 2012 SCCA World Challenge Camaro build.

This is a full build layout of a Pro Level World Challenge Camaro race car. While some of the more 'trick' items will not be shown in detail we are going to give you a very in-depth look behind 'locked doors' of how a Camaro goes from the street to the track.



"Body in White" ready for pickup




On the trailer ready to come home




At the shop ready to be transported to the chassis plate




Going on the Chassis Plate with doors and hood removed




Stripping the Uni-body



Main roll hoop being fitted

We ran two 2010 Camaros in World Challenge last year (Momentum Race Group) and Jordan drove to victory at Miller. We sold the cars in December. What team will be driving the car and will you be ready for St Pete?

Looking forward to the build.

Right now this first one will be our shop car unless a team or driver would like to purchase the car(s).

Wiki - for the newbs

Body in white or BIW refers to the stage in automotive design or automobile manufacturing in which a car body's sheet metal components have been welded together — but before moving parts (doors, hoods, and deck lids as well as fenders) the motor, chassis sub-assemblies, or trim (glass, seats, upholstery, electronics, etc.) have been added and before painting.

The name derives from manufacturing practices before steel unibody or monocoque bodies — when automobile bodies were made by outside firms on a separate chassis with an engine, suspension, and fenders attached. The manufacturers built or purchased wooden bodies (with thin, non-structural metal sheets on the outside) to bolt onto the frame. The bodies were painted white prior to the final color.

A folk etymology for Body in White suggests the term derives from the appearance of a car body after it is dipped into a white bath of primer (undercoat paint)— despite the primer's actual gray color.

In car design, the Body in White phase refers to the phase in which the final contours of the car body are worked out, in preparation for ordering of the expensive production stamping die. Extensive computer simulations of crash worthiness, manufacturability, and automotive aerodynamics are required before a clay model from the design studio can be converted into a Body in White ready for production.

Factories may offer BIW cars to racers, who then may replace up to 90% of the car with aftermarket parts. Frequently racers must apply to purchase one of these cars.
