Recommendations for PHX area shop

Looking for a quality shop in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area to work on my 2014 Z/28.
Someone who knows how to track prep a Camaro.

Looking for a track alignment, adding camber, developing a relationship...

J&R has done all my work so far and I'm real happy with the quality of there work. They had a Z28 they were prepping for the track a few months back and they had it on scales to corner balance. They seem to do a lot of Road Course set ups and they have their 5th Gen in the Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge. They have quite a few different Z28's on there Facebook page so I know they have worked on quite a few.
They aren't on here but there # is 480 878 8695. They are off the 101 and 7th street.

Ok, I'll check out J&R and CPR.

The shops I have talked either have experience with track/road course cars, but non with Camaros... Or have experience with Camaros/LSX engines, but not with track setups.

This is my first Camaro so I haven't yet, but I am doing a Auto-X event in California in Sept and I am doing a track day at Inde Motorsports Ranch the end of Sept.
The guys at J&R are trying to get me to run at the Optima Qualifier in October.
I am setting it up to do more road course stuff so I am looking for more events to attend.

OK, do any of you guys have an actual track alignment though?
Camber plates, custom mounts drilled, that sort of thing?

It seems most of the shops I've talked to, including a couple mentioned above, really are not familiar with track setups. They are experienced with adding power for road use, or cosmetic changes, but not track/racing setups.

This car is track car, so I need as much neg camber as possible, slight toe out in the front, etc.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to at least call Tony@UMS, or see if CPR can partner with him for some help. He is the road racing master around here.

He just won the west coast NASA nationals I believe in his car. That guy can drive and knows a road race setup.

Then again his car looks goofy as hell. That splitter is CRAZY.

haha the new splitter is hilarious. Also justin sent you some info on hitting the camber you want, there is a company working on some products to be able to achieve what you want. Nothing out yet, but we are on it sir.
