Detroit Speed Inc., has figured out a way to make GM’s already awesome fifth-gen Camaro even better. Its new coilover kit is a direct bolt-on assembly that completely replaces the front strut assembly. The kit uses a DSE/JRi high-performance aluminum strut with “Detroit Tuned” valving. The street kit lowers the car approximately 1.5 inches at the nominal design position. The unique design offers an increased negative camber range over the stock struts. The top spindle-mounting hole uses removable inserts to allow the camber to be adjusted in increments of 1/16-inch without any worry of movement or sliding like a traditional slot. The race kit includes all of the same benefits as the street kit with the addition of a solid upper strut mount to eliminate the friction and compliance of the OEM mount, as well as an additional camber adjustment at the top of the strut tower.

They’re also quiet, easy to install, and work with gas, diesel, blended alcohol, and E85. The pumps support up to 400 horsepower on a carbureted engine and are self-priming with a 12-inch dry lift capability for more flexible mounting.

Strange Engineering is no stranger to the dragstrip. For 20 years those guys have being coming up with ways to launch harder and stop safer. They also know that ounces make pounds. The Strange Engineering two-piece rotors utilize a unique floating rotor design that allows for axial and radial growth as temperatures increase. The field-tested lug design reduces warping and coning tendencies of the rotor. In addition, the spiral lock retention eliminates the possibility of loose bolts and the need for safety wire, as well as reducing rotating weight. The Strange two-piece rotors can replace existing Strange rotors or be had as an upgrade to any of their front or rear brake kit assemblies.
