Robert, how about some clarification on your shock travel.  Are you saying that you have 2" up and 2" down?  Your camber would be set at ride height, right?  What are you trying to do with this car?  What are you trying to achieve?  What knuckle and A-arms are you going to use on the fronts?  What suspension components are you going to use in the rear?

From my experience -.5 to -1.5 is good for the street. Up to -2.5 for racing applications. Also the rear should be half of the front...

2.9* will make the car EXTREMELY darty, almost scary on the cambered roads that we have here

I need some engineering advice. I have model of my rear suspension using www.racingaspirations.com. At 4 inches of travel ( the shock travel) I have 2.9 degrees of negative camber. What do you guys think?

A few more pics of progress. I welded d.o.m. ( drawn over mandrel) pipe in the tube. If you have a bolt passing though a section of tube, welding a piece of pipe ensures clamping torque. You do not want to crush the tube, when you torque your bolts. I added some gusset tubes for more strength.

New LS4 removeable engine cradle/chassis section

Here is a few pics of my progress for the engine cradle/ chassis section.
I will be able to remove the drivetrain from the bottom of the car. I had to scrap the idea of using OEM drivetrain mounts, because I did not have space for the trans mount. I fabricated the drivetrain mounts and used urethane bushings. :CSS

I lengthened my snowmobile trailer, so the body would fit on it. LOL

I just came home from purchasing my Reventon from lamboreplica. Nice quality! I feel like a kid at Christmass!
