New Gen 5 Tube Frame Road Race Camaro Build

Another 2012 tube frame Camaro is under construction at Bemco Fab in Deland Fl by Woody Wood. This one is a Howe/Bemco Road Race chassis made of 1 3/4" x .095 DOM to be fitted with the Howe Camaro Trans Am 2 bodywork. Power will be a small block chevy that is designed to use aftermarket LS3 heads. Reportedly makes 700 HP at the flywheel. Tranny will be a Nascar type road race Jerico with a Winters QuickChange rear end. Penske shocks with a 3 link with watts link rear suspension. Brembo Nascar cup brakes in front and Wilwoods in the rear. Will weigh about 2500# without driver. Should be ready in a few weeks and will compete in the NorthEast at NJMP, Pocono, Watkins Glen and others.

Here are few pics I took off the chassis

This is a pic of a similar build with the Howe composite body being fitted to an earlier Bemco chassis. This one was converted from a GTA type Monte Carlo to Camaro.

The car is for NASA SU, so there is no minimum. It should be right at 2500 without driver and fuel.

Another Gen 5 racer from Woody at Bemco this one for Larry from NYC. This will be a Nasa SU racer seen mostly at NJMP, Pocono and the Glen. It debuted in a test last weekend, the torque from the big LS broke the quick change rear end. It will get converted to a nine inch type rear to handle the power.
