Pedders Day Pictures at Modern Muscle

We had a great turnout and thanks to all for comen out, and a big thanks to Pete Basica for spending the day with us at Modern Muscle!

Pedders released there new coilover system. It is a remote reservoir coilover with dual adjustability. This makes it a great setup for both autocross guys and drag strip guys. They have also increased the monotube size from 46mm to a 52mm setup. The increase of fluid in the monotube will increase ride comfort and is also perfect for race setups.

Pedders is also going to be releasing coated steel braided break lines. Here are some pictures of the new product as well as from the pedders day.











Here is a picture of how there sway bar is going to work, the sway that they had on the car was a prototype and a very rough one at that you can rest assured that it will be much cleaner when its released. You will notice that the end link has been shortened.



Here are some good examples of why Eibach springs are not the ideal spring for any application... When the springs are made they are cold wound so when they are subjected to cold weather they loose there spring and compress as shown in the picture.









and lastly here are some pics from the meet!

I wonder if Pedders(Mike/Pete) can chime in on the new swaybar and its' position in the pedders line up. Ordered XA street II+ (includes swaybarB). Swaybar is still on backorder.

The coils you are showing is pretty normal. Add those coils to a GTO nd you have only 1 useable coil in the rear! Works fine as long as you do not put anyone in the back seat or hit a bump

the New coil over are pretty cool. Can't wait until they are released?

Sooo one quick question here:

Is the bigger monotube setup (46-52 mm as modern muscle states) still going to allow for a wider wheel/tyre setup in the front? I know the justice pete car has the variant coilovers that allow for 19x10.5 wheels with a 305 tyre on all four corners.

What type and size forgelines is the orange camaro sporting in the pics?

The sway bar that is on this car is a prototype of what we are selling. It will now have 4 way adjustable fronts.

Sway bars are popping in every couple of days. We are having them hand made at great expense. The plant is in a remodel and upgrading the equipment big time especially the military grade shot peening machine. This is about all the info I have.

Pete has 305s on all 4 corners with no issues.
