Great info thanks.

1. So that gold foil reflects heat well, can it be purchased?

2. How does the cool shirt setup work? Does the driver also get cooler air ducted to the helmet? We run a low 7 second LS drag radial car and the driver gets might hot all suited up in the summer waiting to make a pass.

Joey,

It looks to me like those are the stock rear calipers?



and I noticed most of the suspension components, are stock? lower control arms etc...

Is there a reason you are running the shorter swaybar position instead of the extended bar that comes in the 2013 camaros.

Here's pic.

Thanks for sharing the build!

Do the rules allow the motor to be moved toward the rear?

Good luck at Indy!:party0038:
I have a question, what is going on with the front top lip of the nose, is it bent up like that intentionally?

Fast is going on. There is little structure in the front fascia and at the speed they are running the fascia is is not as hard as the air they are driving through.

Pete, thanks for the response. Is that common for all camaro's?

I think it is damage related to the previous day's rollover on the 62 Mitchum Motorsports Camaro that is causing the boxer's nose.

All of those are purpose built race cars. The number 62 is a stock Camaro chassis. Maybe it just need's a little reinforcement up front.

All of those are purpose built race cars that are tube frame cars with artificial Camaro bodies manufactured to fit on the chassis. The number 62 is a stock Camaro chassis. Maybe it just need's a little reinforcement up front.

Negative. The last two are in the exact same class (GS) as the Mitchum cars and are therefore built to the same spec.
