Greetings to my new car community
I actually joined a while ago while I owned Chevelle cars. I was always a Chevelle guy, but also always had a fondness for the 1st generation Camaro. So, I still own my 68 Chevelle, but I finally bought a 1968 Camaro and plan on selling the Chevelle later next year. I know a lot about Chevelle cars, but not nearly so much on the Camaro. I know I will learn a lot from you guys like I did when I joined the Chevelle forum.
I plan on swapping the engines between my newly acquired Camaro and my Chevelle. This means I will most likely need to beef up the rear end to help plant and launch when I go to the track. I am a part time drag race track guy. Mostly just on T&T nights. The power loss here in Denver sucks.
So I need some referrals for 4 links parts. I probably need more than just a pair of Caltracs. I also need a driveshaft loop. Chevelles are full frame cars and don't have things like panhard bars. I am not used to the Unibody frames. How far do I need to take the rear suspension for a mid 11 second car?
I don't think I need a full 4 link kit with all the bells and whistles. I do have a 12 bolt. I also have a Tremec 5 speed, which is my first manual transmission muscle car and the rear gears are currently 3.55. So I would like recommendations for new gears for a car that mostly runs on the street and drives to my track on the freeway, but will see the track 6-12 a year. Basically, 4.10 or can I even go 4.56 with a 5 speed?
Thanks in advance and I look forward to learning a lot from you guys.
