Launching with proper weight transfer:

Not a C5 camaro, but raced my vette, the Bat Car at PBIR this weekend and crew did slow-mo video of my launches. This shows proper weight transfer and the tires working. Rear shocks are QA1 single adjustable at 3 clicks compression, fronts are QA1 double adjustable with rebound at zero and compression at 18 (tightest) so the rear will squat and the front will come up easy and slowly compress back down. This is key to putting power to the ground and keeping the tires planted on a launch. Car does 1.40 60' and on motor alone 10.70. a bit of spray and she is deep in the 9's.

All in a street legal cruiser.

Enjoy!

Oh, and did not go rounds. Broke rear diff and had to sit the rest of the race out. Will have it back and ready to race by this weekend if all goes right.
