I'll have to checkout Viking - I was looking into Ridtech's setup - but that gets expensive super quick.

Jon - keep on posting updates - car is looking awesome so far!

Thanks. The Viking stuff seems really quality. Lots of shock dampening adj....and ride height adj built into the shock body with different size springs as well. I believe UMI runs a 4th gen camaro in optimia street car challenge with Vikings and either won ....or was very competitive.

Yeah - in Optima there is with a ZR1 that has the Viking setup on his C6 - and I think he got the expensive electronic one that is programmable.

Felt great to get back to some stuff I had put too far on the back burner. Beretta progress!!!! Viking coilovers. Extended Spohn upper and lower tubular arms and extended tierods, shortened knuckles, flaming river power steering rack, power stop disc brakes

Some more trimming and cutting in the inner fender/wheel well= more steering angle
I'd say

Made some progress on casting the rear bumper. Still need two more layers but ran out of laminating resin and cloth. Back to the store

Wow! Great progress, that is an impressive steering-angle, I am personally always laughing at GM's biggest failing in that department with the phrase 'turns like a Chevy' as I make a multi-point turn... :roll: You won't be able to say that about your car! :good:

Those aluminum panels look oh so clean in there... I can't believe how nice those door panels look.

Still watching, after all this time, and not disappointed at all. Keep it going! :Bravo:
