Neutral opinion wanted

Im thinking of uppgrading the handling.
Still waiting for the car but im harvesting parts in the meantime! (2014 2SS/RS)
Im very interested in the pfadt stage 3 zl spec package but now ive been recommended the BMR Level 3 Handling Performance Package. I'll be going on long trips crose europe on high speed autobahn and the occasional track weekend.
So what does the almighty camaro5 community think?
BMR or Pfadt?

We offer both options and I would personally go with the Pfadt Stage 3 given those choices. The sway rates are balance beautifully, the solid sub frame mounts are excellent and the rear arm package is dialed in. The spring rates are only slightly higher than the OEM rates so your ride quality doesn't change very much; it is slightly firmer and more refined IMHO.

Please feel free to call, email or PM me anytime with questions or for pricing. Good luck on your decision and and congrats on the 2014!!!

Kind regards,

Jordan Priestley

Like JDP, we are a distributor for both brands and for the kind of use you are describing I would probably go with the Pfadt ZL Spec Stage 3. It is a beautifully engineered package with outstanding manners on the road and even more impressive performance.

Macina,

Give Jordan a call or email. I have been dealing with him for a few years now and he has helped me dial in my car and is always available for technical questions. Not to mention he tests what he sells. He has one of the fastest track cars in the country.

Take a look....

The drag strip is like sniffing glue, it's cheap, it's a decent buzz, it doesn't last long and they are all the same.
Road racing is like China White Heroin, the buzz is stronger, the high lasts for hours, it's extremely addictive and they are all different.
I can't wait for my next

I believe it's pronounced "fought". I could definitely be wrong though

Our Level 3 handling performance package (HPP020) will not work for you because the particular sway bars in that package are designed for the earlier Camaro. With that being said we do have a full line up of parts like sway bars, lowering springs, and bushings that will work on your 2014 Camaro. If you were interested we could put together a custom suspension package for you that will achieve your goals without breaking the bank. If there is any way we can help you out let us know.

I appreciate the kind remarks, T.Bone! We have hands on experience with every product we sale; we're not on here repeating what others are saying. We've got one of the fastest 5th Gens in the country and it is a 100% daily driver with stock interior; that says a lot as well.

It is actually pronounced "FOT" but it is always interesting to hear all the variations.

PFadt is really good stuff, but BMR also can improve your cars handling for high speeds and I can say from experience they stand behind their products. I would shop both and decide how serious you want to spend.
