Suspension worthy of 1000+ hp?

Been looking at the ZL1 and that magnetic ride and what nots is pretty nice, but is it possible to build out better in an SS. Planning on doing an engine swap to the LSX454 putting procharger F-1X and hooking up a nitro system, however i would like this car to be able to handle as well and not just drag race. Thinking coil-overs sway bars toe-links trailing arms and what not but is it possible to get that much power to handle around the track without making your ride hard as rock?

Also planning piston brembos on the front, though i wonder if that will be enough as well.

The plan is to turn this into a track/drag racing car along with keeping it as my daily driver though is that asking a bit much?

If you have the cash, almost anything can be done.

Hows the ride/handling with the BMR Fabrication Level 3 Handling Performance Package HPP020? or do you have something beyond that with coilovers?
