    Questions and Answers

    Can the V6 suspension be replaced with the V8 suspension?
    Sure. They're really the same thing: it's Zeta. It's far more complicate, but the SS is simply a little more stiff and "tuned in". If you're looking to improve the suspension at a later date -- just leapfrog over the SS and call up Pedders. Their systems will work on the V6 just as well as the SS.

    Can we put those V8 Brembos on the V6?
    Sure! Technically, you can put any aftermarket brakes on any car so long as they fit inside the tire. If I go V6 -- this is midway up the list of modifications I'm going to do later on. Check these folks out:

    same platform as the G8 but still way under the charger weight


    what really impress me is the tire size. GM finally made a modern car that didn't pussyfoot around with base model tire size.

    on the subject of tires i was sort of wondering if a smaller diameter wheel/tire assy would work on them so as to allow for more sidewall to wrinkle/hook up on the launch...i guess bolt pattern and caliper to wheel space would really define that...

    It wont take long for manufacturers to jump on developing wheels for these cars.

    You can get 18" on the base model. Its black with a chrome beauty ring. It looks like the older maro and S-10 base wheels. If I got a new camaro I would try to get those and throw some smaller and wider wheels on. All the vids I have seen the wheels squeel to easily. I would like some better traction and maybe throw on a 17 or 18" Z06 wheel.
