FastFatBoy and I had a blast at Barber. This was a shake down run for my car, so I definitely found a few bugs to work out. The last session the upper radiator hose blew out of the pump which of course put water everywhere (including under the tires). I think it is just a bad pump, but if anybody has seen anything like this before let me know. Quick rundown of the car: '99 Camaro, Forged 347, TFS as cast heads, Fast92/92, Comp Cam 236/238@ .50 .612/.612 lift approx 450 RWHP. Aftermarket control arms front/rear, Strano sway bars, Koni SA shocks, Strano springs, Watts link. The car weighs 3173 w/o driver. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=svoTy_Gkhmc

Thanks for the compliments. I am extremely pleased with the setup on this car. I set the shocks per Sam Strano's recommendations and the car handles very well. I am no expert, but there is nothing "I" can adjust or change to make the car handle any better. So to answer the question, there is nothing I would or plan to change on the suspension of this car. A few things I forgot to add: the car has a stock 10 bolt rear with a 3.42 gear and a Detroit TruTrac differential. I am currently running stock C5 Z06 wheels with a set of Nitto NT05 tires (275/40/17 front -295/35/18 rear). Here are a few more pics of the car:
