These will be my first item to buy.

Anyone heard of any plans for them?

Anyone ever run any.

I had them on my 92 B4C. Chris Alston and they were the best I have ever seen.

Yea, ChassisWorks makes some good stuff.

I would consider them for my 5th Gen, although I'm not sure they will be necessary. The unibody construction these days is pretty **** good.

I would not jump to any conclusions, and buy things that worked great on other cars, before you even know if they will be necessary/applicable.

Pedders is a suspension specialist and a sponsor on this site. Pedders kits for the G8 GT do not include any mention of "frame connectors". The Track II kit does not include them and they claim AMG like handling.. That's all I need to know..

my mustang had kenny brown super subframe connectors which worked great.. but the best piece in the kit was the panhard bar BY FAR!

4th gens had the panhard bar from the factory (I believe).. sorry I was a mustang freak at that time... but have since "seen the light"!! :patriot:

Asshat! :lol:

I guess I am oldschool....without a full frame there WILL be energy translated via the body.

As soon as we see one on slicks pulling the front tires 6 inches, I guess we will know.

I guess I am just paranoid!

Pedders has a very serious amount of experience with ZETA, and to be honest, unless you are putting down 600-700hp, I think you should invest in other suspension parts first. The sub frame connectors will not reduce the excess body role, nore will it help with the aggressive understeer the Camaro has.


Now that does not mean other platforms do not need them. The Mustange needs more subframe connectors and braces than are available. the Mustang can really twist a lot. Maybe this is the reason the Mustang is lighter than the ZETA vehicles.

Thanks

That's a good point.

I am more interested in keeping the body from tearing.

I will sit and wait to see.
