Gotcha, most folks I know are having it professionally done for big bucks...figured this might shine a little light on DIY for a lot less. I'm curious how it'll hold up long term.

A lot of my content is on the Mopar, but the Camaro gets a moment in the spotlight this week.

The right tire/wheel setup
The right tire pressure (not too low...

130MPH is a good trap speed. Get some DRs on that thing! Your 60' must be in the 1.7 or 1.8 range?



Temperatures are a valid concern. I've been dissecting the tune in my Hellcat and it has...

I don't think any of these cars will be worth a dime 25 years from now, just another clapped out hoopty. The 1970 era won't happen again IMO.

What's a 1995 Camaro worth $3K on a good day?

New design is hideous and even a fanboy site hates it. You don't think that makes the previous style more desirable? Ok shrug.

Wow, just awful. GM should poll this site with pre-prod designs to get input. Probably the best market survey they could do. Will be real curious how sales hold.

Is there a poll on here asking who likes the refresh and who doesn't? Maybe GM should poll this site before making changes like this. Sales surely wont' be good on this atrocity.
