Raised the back up 1/4" this morning. Car is leveled out now. Looks better and hopefully that extra bit of clearance will help in the long run.

Totally agree. I can't believe the rears rusted like that.

I used Rust-Oleum 2000 degree high heat matte black paint. Just a few bucks at HD. Taped them off, hit them several times from all angles, hit them again.

I wonder what Pete will say when he sees that pic.....
When Doug said Nittos I thought NT-05.

The wheels and tires look great.

And Pete? I think he's gonna say "needs lowering."

That, or, "so when are we going to do some autocross???"




Thanks!
Doug are you still on Xas? No Supercars???

Raised

We are going back to BlackJack for corner weighting and re-alignment so we are ready for a CamaroCross.

I looked at the NT-05 but went with the Invo's as they had better ratings. Not a bad price on all of them either.

Still on Xa's. Would rather have supercars.....BUT>>>>>>>>>>>>>......

Yeah...raised....I know. But when you see, you'll know why.

LMK on black jack.

There is one thing I miss having moved from Michigan. Machine shops on very corner used to doing prototype work. Is there machine shop in the SA area that can mill a bit of stock off the inner wheel hub face?

and don't let Pete call you this, that, & the other for not slamming...
the fact that you can actually still clear some curbs puts you a bit above me & Izzy's paranoid about the though of having to dodge every dip, curb, speed bump, and slope in the road




...wait, why am i complaining about my wife NOT wanting to drive my car?!






and on the Invos, they're alright as an all-around tire for sure - solid in the dry & rain, quiet, smooth, and have worn pretty good over the past year & a half. that said, i probably wouldn't use them as track tires on the regular - well i say i wouldn't but ain't had the money to buy any others for hot-dogging around yet , but i do wish i had the NT-05s for the serious business. not as good in the rain, but pretty sticky when they're warmed up.

I'm still paranoid. I'm not as paranoid of them rubbing as I was earlier before I brought it up a tad. I need to set a tiny bit of camber and I won't have to worry at all. But I'm driving a little harder now and still no rubbing.

I think I'll break out the gopro tomorrow and set it up on the rear...see just how close it gets.

Maybe I'll do the NT-05's next. We'll see....but these Invo's are flippin' sweet.

I can't believe I did that.... and entire wheel trashed in all of 3 seconds at 2mph. That's one thing I can't believe GM did...design a wheel that's flush mount with the tire and givem to a bunch of crazed hot head drivers and say...watch the curbs....lol. Everyone hits curbs and rubs....everyone. While I think it looks great, a wider tire should have been put on there (IMHO). EVERYONE was getting curb rash....

Anyway...

The tire sticks out just a tad on these...just enough to where if I do rub the curb, it shouldn't hurt the rim. I'm still going to be careful, but you know. After England Green, ...4 years later, no road rash.

We make Petty parts for MOPAR products in Petty Blue. When the King asks for Petty blue Camaro parts you'll be able to get yours in PETTY blue.
