OPEN



Plenty of space



So, carefully pouring through the many pages of hullaballoo, I formulated the below list. If I missed someone I mean no offense.

SSE 4 2SS (top secret Pedders stuff onboard)
BeckyD (classified Pedders talk as well )
600 hp-lpe (permanent #38SM)
tpower (brought bewb pics and kittens)
GTAHVIT (seems to be picked on)
PQ (seems to do the pickin')
CamaroSkooter (brought JW Blue Label) Happy Birthday
speedster (has sammiches)
Dr Jkel (hates Savini and has a BFH when you need one)
ME (cause I likes BBQ)
Redemption (brought beer wenches)
Mr. Twisty (brought Peanut)
LOWDOWN (brings crazy shit to the forum. Watch him with the Mustang guys, LMAO)
ShnOmac (created the house of "Z", ever hopeful)
Scott@bjorn3D (broke the Pedders shitter)
mlee (brought bulls and Kung Fu Grasshopper)
2010ABM (calls himself and PQ short; I believe "crew" was the word)
Dangeruss (accepts all challenges)
armysig (he's got BBQ)
thespymaster (Pedderised a dog! How cool is that?)

So there you go Pete. Dinner for this bunch is on you

Come to Arizona, I eat my BBQ almost everyday for lunch. I think my co workers are ready to start stealing my lunch if I leave it in the fridge.

Oh you guys are in for a treat! Bring your bibs and your hungry face, because it's about to get messy.

Pete sent me the info and I'm sending some food. Please keep it civil and make sure you enjoy it.

If you happen to miss out, don't worry I'll try my best to make it to the next Fest and feed some of you.

To drive a 5th Gen fast you want stability and predictability in your handling. That starts at the foundational level with bushes. We want the arms to articulate freely, but within a tighter operational range. The amount of lateral movement in the 5th Gen lower rear arm with OE bushes and even with Pedders bushes is to great when you are looking for 1/10th or a 100th in a corner. We'll be testing this banded thrust bearing system this weekend. It is going to shift the load and our testing is designed to find out where ans what if anything we break on the Raymond's Performance Camaro and the L/28. Our best guess is that the arm will fatigue and we'll need to replace the lower control arms frequently. If that is all that we find, swapping out lower controls arms will cost less than the fluid changes between events. The track is not forgiving, it will tell us we are brilliant or idiots this weekend.





While we are on the subject of lower control arms, here is a how to on removal of the OEM lower inner control arm bush.



The OEM rear trailing arm bush is great for driving in the 8/10ths range. Pushed to 10/10ths or 11/10ths it allows too much movement creating instability. Installing a steel jacketed bush into the knuckle position requires it be removed from the car. Once off the car, the installation is straight forward. The increase in stability is enormous. You can see why in these pictures and the video.








Brought to you by Pedders. You know, the company without real engineers or testing program that just sells stuff
