Beware of burnouts! These tires are sticky, but soft. We boiled through a set in 6 races, our goodyear eagles get us 30. Doing the same burnout. We called MT to bitch and they told us we were just supposed to burp the throttle, a couple spins to clean them off, no need to heat them. They hooked real good for sure but we went back to Goodyear, for the smoke!

Got my new rear suspension components installed yesterday. Very Happy with everything so far. Went together nice. Had to go buy a cheap die grinder after finding out that my pneumatic drill just wasn't sufficient to trim away the material for the upper shock mount. But other than that, assembly was pretty easy. I'm still running the stock Brembos and will probably stick this way for a while.....don't really know that I'll ever NEED 15" wheels, but I will be returning to 17" welds hopefully soon, and now....I'll NEVER need to be worried about LCA Clearance ever again!!!

If it runs as good as it looks, look out
Did you end up with the Shank style rim or Conical seat?

That is one good looking Camaro!

Let us know how everything works once you get down the track a few times.

Hehe, sign me up for revision 14 of these. Still a little too tight. Just doing a 750 mile inspection of it all and noticed the issue. Only did about 150 miles on the 15s, and a few medium launches, rest of miles were with the 18s. Only hit on the passenger side, drivers side has a very very very slight witness mark (you can see where its rubbed the powdercoat) but isn't into the metal. Going to take a bit off with a sand wheel because I'm afraid something bad will happen if I launch it at the track and it squats all the way
