I have run a metric streetstock for the last 6 years now with good results but the dominant cars at our track in pro and ss have always been comaro based.I am leaning twards a comaro project for this winter.Our rules are pretty straight forward stock front end components with larger rf coil only.We even have to run the stock rubber bushings which can be new but must be oem and yes they do check them.Rear end is the same stock only but a ford 9-inch is allowed and we must run stock mount shocks.I ran bilstiens last year and this year and there is no comparison as far as I am concerned.Now in stock form everything I have read says the comaro is superior as far as front suspension and leafs are very forgiving setup wise.Well what do you think with these rules is the comaro the way to go?I already have some rough ideas chassis wise basicaly its going to be a tube chassis with the stock firewall and rear frame rails in place as per rules pretty much a pro stock in ss clothing.Any ideas fire um this way.

I personally like the Nova, they say the Camaro is the way to go but I liked the Novas body style better, and was successfull with it. Eddie

I run a Camaro Street Stock and we have had a few wins and trophys. Can you put Landrum stack leafs in the back, and offset wheels?

I raced an 84 monte carlo for about 3 yrs befor building an 81 firebird, and in my opinion the firebird is a much better car. After all it was a sports car from the factory.
