Simple installs are one thing but do not get your hopes up for any serious installs being available at the track. The logistics of transporting and setting up the necessary equipment is difficult, if not impossible, and the costs to do so are high. You also have to pay the install crew and cover their travel and lodging costs. Then you have to consider how many actual installs could be performed in the time allotted. It takes about 2 hours to install a set of sway bars, 2.5 hours to install a set of drop springs, 3 hours for rear cradle bushings, etc.. You are talking about 3-4 install per day at most. And then there is the biggest problem. Liability concerns for the company performing the install, Camaro5, and the facility if something bad happened. The business case for it is not just weak, it is nonexistent.

But if we buy from you will one of your employees offer free hugs with each purchase? I guess we should get to pick the employee as well.

You know last year I was dead set on getting something while I was at the fest, just kinda as a "souvenir" kind of deal, ended up buying a Hurst short throw from JDP and got a solid deal on it. This year I would like to do it again but Im not sure there is going to be anything I want and don't already have that will be in my price range .

Camaro5Fest Installs

How about an add on color-changing halo kit for the fog lamps that looks the same as your headlight halo's and just plugs into your controller....Just wishfull thinking, I'll take the first set!
