looking for some inpute for the morfidite strut front end it looks like it will gain a bunch of camber as you turn???? are you doing anything up front or not ? And how do you like the car

you're correct. the camber curve isn't ideal on a strut car, but the torque arm rear suspension on later model camaros is very good and the shorter wheelbase transfers weight quicker. there are pros and cons to newer strut cars, mustangs included. i wouldn't recommend starting out in one of these cars unless it's a mini-stock, but they can be extremely fast in experienced hands with v-8 power.

I think that if you know what you are doing it is the car to beat. At Batesville' fall race out of the 145 trying for a spot in the big show, the metric cars about 25 there and 1 made it in a lcq , 3rd gen. camaro's 12 there 6 made the show 50%, 4th gen camaro's 5 there and 1 made the show & sat fast time, the rest of the cars 2nd gen. camaro's the field was 28 cars so out of all the cars there the 3rd gen. was the best, didnt win the race a 2nd gen. camaro won but you can see you stand a better chance of making it in with this car than any other. So you better get to studying up times are changen and you are going to run out of the old cars I have a 2nd gen car and a new 3rd I cant wait to drive this bad boy

Put an 80 or so front subframe under it and tie it together with the rear and you will have a pretty good car. Eddie

You'll have a pretty nice car if you do that. You won't be able to race it anywhere, but it will by a nice car.
