its not always the v8 guys talking down to the v6 guys. There was one where a guy asked why a member got the v6 and the v6 guy went off on him.

its just like the M6 vs A6 comparisons, "you aren't a real man if you don't have your hand on the stick".

the best part is the guys (cus its rarely girls) who don't even have a car or a camaro and they all ask the same thing. doesnt matter if they know jack shit about cars.

hell, this guy could tell people that the scoop is functional and people would believe him.

hell, just watch this...



people are dumb. and if you care enough about what other people think about you and your life, you are dumb too.

I wish I had the time to care about if someone talked crap about my car. hell, I talk crap about my own car and I love my car.

Very Tall Engine Cooling, huh? Wow, just wow. Correct me if I'm wrong, but all I see is a supercharger with a cold air intake. That, and a moron with his hat on sideways.

After watching more, I don't know who the bigger dumb ass is?

the thing is... all these v6 guys could tell people they have the v8 and most non-camaro owners wouldn't know the difference.

hell, I used to drive around in an INLINE 6 camaro for years. granted... it was the big block 292ci I6, but still a 6 cyl.

So click gone.

Now all I have to do is find my clunking noise. Isn't that bad but it's there. I was hoping it was from the trunk but I cleared the trunk out and still is there.

There is a small chance that I'm crazy and it's the tires but can't be sure.

Amazing what a couple of washers can do. Your clunk isn't the driveshaft again, is it?

Nope. It only happens when the car drops into a dip or other low sudden spot. It wont' happen on a bump up. And it is a clunk sound coming from the rear somewhere. I was hoping it was from the washers but once I saw how those were installed and what they were I knew it wasn't going to fix the clunk.

Has the preload on your Supercars backed off? Or set the same? Clunk on same side of car when it happens?

Reason I ask is if it happens at a dip, it could be the spring suddenly drooping then smacking the upper spring perch.

It's never really stopped from even before the supercars. I hammered my coil shaft rings together so I seriously doubt they will back of.

Maybe it's my car trying to kick off the last remaining Pfadt items.

haha, funny thing is I was going to say the bolts on the sway bar may have backed off! When I had Pfadt bars they slipped cause their staps have some play up and down in them.
