    The front is 700# Moog springs, GW uppers w/tall balljoints, Viking shocks, and Hotchkis hollow bar. I also added a quick ratio steering box. Rear is Speedtech 3 link with a 9" rear and floater axles/hubs, Ridetech coilovers. Willwood brakes front and rear. It's mostly bolt in stuff and it works.

    The corners looked tough for you; but, you dominated the straightaway.

    Thank you. It's bare bones except I added power windows.. I figured I can't reach the window crank in a 5 point harness.

    Very nice. Beautiful car. What steering box are you running and what's the steering effort and road feel like? I've got what's supposed to be the WS6 box in my car and it feels over boosted and numb.

    I'm using the Delphi 600 12.7 steering box with a KRC aluminum pump. Spoke with KRC a few times and they told me I needed to upgrade to their small volume pump ($$$) because the typical GM pump will overheat the fluid and cause problems. I researched this and sure enough a lot of people tracking their 4th gen Camaro's were having pump problems and were adding coolers with limited success. My engine turns 7000-7500 each lap and have never had a problem. No cooler needed in the Arizona heat. The steering effort is noticeable but very driveable. So much so that I called KRC to ask about a bigger flow valve for the pump. Tech guy talked me out of it and said I need to get all the air out. That seems to have worked.

    Car looks beautiful!

    Course looks short, how long were your sessions?

    Thanks. The video was taken from one place on the track. I think the track is about 1.75 miles total. Sessions were 20 minutes each.
