I have no doubt some shop/company out there will offer a kit, just like the Cobra crowd was doing a couple years ago. Just don't expect GM to offer it.
Well I was just curious to whether it was possible. I do not plan to go in this direction with the car anyway (thats what my current Camaro is for), but if I was setting this car up for drag racing I really wouldn't need much from a rear suspension other than to hold still, straight and together, an IRS's greater complexity will offer no real benefit and just a few more things to break and worry about. Also RWHP loss that you get with the IRS and doesn't that also equal less MPG? IMO for straitline racing the live axle > than IRS but for everything else its the opposite. I see wheel hop being an issue for IRS as well. Also when comparing cars I see there performance compared more in a strait line more than on a road course.sorry guys im just a designer (and an australian).. you'll have to explain to me why anyone would want to replace an IRS with a live axle??
Did the Gto have IRS because if they did I really don't remember alot of wheel hop when watching them race.I'm definitely looking forward to an IRS in the maro. I'll probably only go to the track a couple times a year. I just hope it doesn't have a violent wheelhop.
hmm I didn't even know they had the 9" for it. So does all the 9" center interchange with a solid axle 9" center?Yes, IRS on the GTO. There are companies that make HD shafts, cradles, 9" Ford differential IRS.
Drag bags help alot with wheel hop as well.
Well, nothing in a bolt on applications is CHEAP, but with a torch, a TIG and some ingenuity, it could be EASY!:roxor:dont expect it to be cheep
the first few yrs.
