    I'm using Moog springs (#5664) 707#rate and smooth body shocks. No drag or autocross...just very spirited street driving. I had to lower the shock mounting point 1.25" due to the shock being just a bit too long for my ride height. The fronts are fine and seem to be the right length for the ride height of my car. I have my car tore back apart at the moment working up in the engine bay.

    You've got so many cool details going into this thing, it's going to be killer. LOVE the fender vents, and I've never been a fan of the stock ones on our cars. You're cleaning it up just right, and making it work better is icing on the cake.

    I've gotta make it a point to swim through here more often for sure.

    Been neglecting this thread (and car) for quite a while... I've been working on and playing with my other car while waiting on my body guy to get a spot open for it. And now it finally goes in! So I started to reassemble the body panels and remembered a couple things on the to-do list I'd forgotten about! haha

    Cleaned it off from being used as a shelf... Took the brakes off so I can get the calipers anodized... Rebuilt the hood hinges again with stronger Loctite (the red loosened back up when using the hinge)... Some fiberglass work on the nose that ASC trimmed too close...

    Hauling it to the body shop I'll get to use the new trailer I just bought. So far I love it. It's 1450lbs and I can just pick it up and drop it on the hitch when unloaded. Figure with the open center I can use it as a lift if needed, too.

    BTW...I did get a 13.9@100 out of the Beretta with the new cam for the 3.4 v6. The 60' is garbage though... 2.19. So I bought a pair of slicks my buddy had for sale and some 12lb 15x7s to put them on. 13.5s maybe? Best I ever did get with the 355 in the Camaro was a 13.55! haha
