In Brainerd, MN, Pfadt Race Engineering teamed up with Carriage House Customs to build a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro Race Car for the American Iron Series. This is a great promo showing what this effort is about, and the results that come from it (won all three races so far!).
Pfadt Racing 2010 Camaro race car at BIR-final video
Pfadt Race Engineering teamed up with Carriage House Customs to deliver results at Brainerd International Raceway in Minnesota on a brand new race program. Carriage House Customs ran a 2010 Camaro race car built on all Pfadt suspension, and took all three wins in the NASA American Iron series that weekend. In addition, they also set a track record. Pfadt was there for engineering support, and got some great video in the process.
2010 Camaro 5th gen Coilover Suspension by Pfadt Racing
With out a doubt, the best handling coilovers on the market for the 5th Generation Camaro are hitting Camaro owners with real results they can count on. These are the same coilovers that are featured on National race winners for road courses and auto-crosses, as well as many show cars and street cars.
2010 Camaro on VIR track
The 2010 Camaro race car practicing at VIR for the Koni Race on Oct 4th.
This video shot at a practice session for the Koni race. The Camaro completed about 5 laps during the 1 hour session. I caught two passes at VIR's going thru turns 3,4, and 5. It didn't look like he was pushing it very hard. The Mustangs were louder than the Camaro.
This Camaro competed Oct 4, 2009 at VIR's Koni Challenge race, retiring 2/3rds of the way thru with clutch problems.
Pfadt Camaro Pulls 1.3Gs
At Miller Motorsports Park, the Pfadt Camaro took to the track and data showed 1.3Gs max on the OEM tires (245 front/275 rear). This car was equipped with Pfadt Coilovers, Pfadt Sport Sways and Endlinks, Pfadt Solid Subframe Bushings, Pfadt Adjustable Toe Links, Pfadt Trailing Arms, Pfadt Engine Mounts and Pfadt Differential Bushings.
Camaro Chassis Flex Demonstration
Pfadt Race Engineering demonstrates the amount of chassis flex by removing the bolts on one end of the Pfadt Camaro Strut Tower brace and filming the chassis deflection. The results are obvious even with the Camaro in street use.
Pfadt Camaro on Skid Pad
We spent several days on the skidpad at Miller Motorsports Park testing swaybars to achieve balance in the 2010 Camaro. This video shows two short clips of the car on the skidpad with different swaybars. The change in the handling of the car is dramatic. You can see in the video a clear case of understeer and a clear case of oversteer. The understeer is very stable, but slow. The oversteer is faster (hence more Gs) but is harder to control. The goal is to get a nice neutral car which our Pfadt swaybars achieved after several iterations.

GM's Johnny O'Connell gives impressions on Pfadt Camaro
During a Corvette Z06 test day recently after ALMS weekend at Miller Motorsport Park with Johnny O'Connell, Pfadt Race Engineering handed the keys to the Pfadt Camaro over and was taken by surprise when Johnny gave some impromptu response on Camera.
Paul Tracy Drives 2010 Camaro at Optima Street Car Challenge
This is the Optima Ultimate Street Car Challenge http://www.optimainvitational.com/ Paul Tracy drives the Pedders 2010 Camaro November 7, 2009 at Spring Mountain. With Pedders suspension, a ProCharger, Forgeline wheels and Bridgestone RE-11 tires Paul run a true street car within seconds of 'almost race cars'. Paul is amazing behind the wheel.
The chase car is a ZR1 Corvette. Take a really close look at how well the Camaro tracks compared to an American icon and current Super Car.
