Beta Test fit Camaro needed ASAP in Great Lakes Area

We need a Camaro ASAP in Michigan or the great Lakes area to do our Beta test fitting our new Pedders Xa coil overs. If you are in this area, you will literally get the best deal on a set of Xas than anyone in the USA

We have the G8 dialed in which is also a Zeta platform. So we expect the beta test fit to be near or at perfection. You can see the Benchmark test info we have posted on all the forums about our tests in NJ.

I am flying out to OHIO, then up to Michigan Friday, then Sunday. I will be out there with Pete doing some work with him. I can extend my trip another week to complete this test fit with him. So Camaros should be in poeple;s hands by then.

If you have any questions, just ask!

I'm near Chicago and should have my Camaro within a week or two I think.

Close enough?

Free Pedders Xa Coil Over set installed Free!!

Pete's and my schedule for the next 4-8 weeks has just become very complicated and packed. As mentioned, we are looking for a Camaro to do a beta install on our Pedders eXtreme Xa Coil Overs. Now this is a beta test, which means we are verifiying the design, settings, and rates are what we want. Now this will not be a normal beta testing. It will be far more advanced than that for 2 reasons: First being we have a massive amount of experience with them not only here in the USA but also in Australia where the ZETA platform has been out there for 2 years or so longer than here, Plus we have installed quite a few in the G8's, which is nearly identical suspension as the Camaro. So we really are expecting a near perfect, if not perfect install. Yesdterday we finished Mustang, which took 2 beta 1 and beta 2, but it is at perfection.

Due to our schedules, we will be doing the installs at one of 2 locations:
Witt Buick in Muskegan MI or at Reeves Buick Pontiac in Greenwood, IN (by Indy)

With the free Xa's, install, and setup time we will be doing, the value of this package is in the $2800 range.

It will be offered to the first Camaro that steps up for the earliest and most convenient date.

Thanks

mike

We found A Camaro for the Beta Test for Monday the 27th

We have found a Camaro, or should I say the Mother of Camaro has found us and asked for help! We have discussed on the forums about our involvement with GM in many departments from Chevrolet, to Pontiac, to GM Racing, to Camaro platform staff and others. We recieved a call today from GM asking for help. They are having rear springs fall out of the Camaro from other suspension manufacturers on 4
VERY SPECIAL
Camaros plus a Camaro that GM is building that will blow the socks off of everyone. Unfortunately, the world does not know about this Camaro and we cannot discuss it so do not ask!!

So Pete and I will be at a undisclosed GM facility doing a install with them present. The Xa coil overs will be going on this Camaro! When we do it, I will see if we have permission to discuss the Camaro and take pictures. Plus we will be able to test the before and after performance level. We are very excited!

So the Xa beta test Camaro is selected. Thanks to all. On a positive note, having it done on Monday, means we can get production up and running extremely fast.

Thanks to all

Guys,

I am really excited about Monday, and it is killing me not being able to talk to all of you what we will be doing on what car. However, the relationship with GM on this stuff, is sacrid and will need to seek permission. I will be taking pictures if it is allowed. But I can tell you, I cannot wait!!
