Big Red Camaro: Driving Fast & Taking Chances

Presenting Big Red Camaro: Driving Fast & Taking Chances The October 2010 Mojave Mile marked the beginning of a partnership between Team Big Red and longtime fan/filmmaker Josh Oliver to create the ultimate Big Red Camaro documentary. Filming at events throughout 2011 yielded over 160 hours of interviews, insider access, documentary footage, and some of the most incredible shots of Big Red at its finest. Each event proved to be unique as the filmmakers employed tools and tactics typically reserved for big budget action movies, like the Cineflex camera system on an A Star helicopter, massive 1000mm lenses on the ground, over 20 "BR" on-board camera angles, and an airplane flying at 160+ mph to get the viewer never before seen, up-close and in-tight action shots of Big Red at devastating top speeds. Some 15 months have passed since then, and in 2011 Big Red competed in 5 of the biggest events the "Weekend Warrior" motor sports world has to offer: Mojave Mile, The Texas Mile (Goliad), The Spectre Challenge (aka Hwy 341 Virginia City), Vintage Auto's "Big Bore Bash" at Willow Springs Raceway, and of course, the Grand Daddy of them all... where the Big Red legend began... September, in Ely, NV for the 24th running of The Silver State Classic Challenge.

Big Red Camaro vs. 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
In February 2014, Hot Rod Magazine invited the Big Red Camaro out to face off against Chevrolet's new 2014 Z-28 Camaro. Big Red has never been one to back down from a challenge and to pit the Generation 1 Camaro against the new Generation 5 was too good an opportunity to pass up. The Big Red team braved one of the worst ice storms on record and made the trip out to the Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama to attend the challenge. With the freezing temperatures came poor track conditions, and the new Z/28 had a huge advantage with all its modern traction control systems - Big Red had her work cut out for her. Unfortunately the less than ideal conditions held Big Red back from reaching her full potential in what would be a classic duel on a truly great road course, but she still managed to give her descendant one hell of a run for its money. A big thanks to Hot Rod Magazine, Chevrolet and Barber Motorsports Park for the opportunity to come out and strut our stuff!

1970 Chevrolet Camaro SS Restoration Project - Insane Build of the Rampage Camaro
Restoration project of the 1970 Camaro SS that would be Rampage rolled into the Roadster Shop looking ratty—but intact—and remarkably straight. It had sat in the desert heat for years, the top half of the car orange from rust blooming through the sunbaked paint. Disassembly showed the floorpan was in a similar condition, with just a bit of rust. The floor could have been salvaged for a restoration, but that was not what was in store for Rampage. After returning from the mediablaster, steel tubing was used to reinforce the body, and the floorpan, inner rear wheeltubs, and trunk bulkhead were cut out. The path that led to the Rampage Camaro began years ago when Roadster Shop co-founder Jeremy Gerber had an idea for a “wicked widebody” car. Jeremy selected a second-generation Camaro because it wasn’t quite as blasphemous to cut one up as opposed to a more-iconic 1969 Camaro or Mustang SportsRoof. Artist Chris Gray put the idea to paper, first as a line drawing, not much more than a sketch. It was everything Jeremy had envisioned. “I had a look, we just had to build it,” Jeremy told us. A repeat Roadster Shop customer caught a peek at the sketch and it inspired him as well. Chris soon had a full rendering completed, with aerodynamic upgrades and the proper stance. He was sold. It was time to get things moving. Thomson Racing Engines supplied an LS7 that runs on pump gas and puts out an impressive 740 hp. The 427ci V8 was mounted 5 inches farther back in the chassis than normal and uses a Harrop individual throttle-body cross-ram intake manifold with twin custom-fabricated plenums that use ducting to pull cool air from the car’s leading edge. To cope with the tremendous cornering forces the wide Hoosiers are capable of, a Dailey billet dry-sump pump was tasked with oiling the bearings and valvetrain. Almost as important as Rampage’s performance was its sound. The shallow pan as well as the suspension design helped free up room to build a 180-degree header system that has a pair of primary tubes from each bank cross under the engine. The primary tubes meet at Burns stainless 4-into-1 collectors and were made to be as equal in length as possible for efficient scavenging. Behind the LS7 is a Tilton bellhousing that mounts a five-speed Jerico road-race dogbox transmission at an angle for improved ground clearance. It’s yet another packaging trick and allows the Exhaust to run underneath the transmission and driveshaft. The car’s overall width is 81 inches, front and rear, as measured from the tires. The 18×12- and 19×12-inch wheels, front and rear, wear 345/35/ZR18 and 345/35ZR19 Hoosier R6 tires, respectively. A slightly less aggressive street tire is also an option, and that drops the width 1 inch per side for an overall width of 79 inches—still as wide as a fullsize truck. As aggressive as it looks, Rampage still uses the same geometry as the Roadster Shop’s production Fast Track suspension, just with more track width. To compensate for the added width, custom control arms were built using 0.090-wall chrome-moly tubing, but their mounting points are the same as off-the-shelf Roadster Shop control arms. Technically, Rampage could be converted to stock Camaro width by removing its flares and swapping on new control arms and a more conservative wheel and tire package.
