Trans-Am Camaros / 1st gen Camaro brake duct pictures
« on: July 15, 2015, 12:59:11 PM »
As you know I would like to improve my braking distance (delco Moraine calipers, s...ty discs and PFC pads) and cooling might be one of the key.

If you have any pictures of front cooling ducts on a 1st gen Camaro that would be helpful.
I have already seen on this board the 69 Camaro of the Penske team with fabricated alloy ducts.
Any other solution here ?

Thanks

Trans-Am Camaros / Camaro 1969 SCCA homologation sheet
« on: February 09, 2015, 12:41:47 PM »
I have received the book "Camaro untold secrets 1967-1969" and interestingly there is a copy of the 1969 SCCA homologation sheet for the Camaro.
There are several mysterious parts listed as the alloy cylinder head or the roller rocker assy, but also something I am very interested in : the optional 12" Girling brake system.

It seems the parts were never available from GM but the Girling brakes are listed as an HD option on the homologation sheet. Specs are cast iron 12" discs with four pistons (1. 1/2 inch).

It seems Girling brakes had been used on other TransAm cars like the Javelins, but do you know if this system has ever been used in TA on a first Gen Camaro ?

Trans-Am Camaros / Power steering on TA Camaro
« on: January 21, 2015, 12:31:45 PM »
Hi,

Was power steering used on Transam Camaro. If so, from which year ?

Nowadays what would be the best system to use on a Camaro ?

What do you think of PS for racing application ?

Thanks for your inputs.

You have followed our first races in vintage racing with our 1967 Camaro in 2014.
I am very happy to announce that we will be part of the 2015 Heritage Touring Cup Championship which is now an FIA sanctioned International event. See details here : http://peterauto.peter.fr/en/plateaux/detail/id/37/nom/HERITAGE%20Touring%20cup

Two new rounds will take place in Italy with Vallelunga in March and the iconic and very fast Monza in July.

I will keep you updated on our results.

Just one shot of the lat 2014 round :

Trans-Am Camaros / Camaro Z28 heavy duty parts list
« on: April 11, 2014, 09:02:06 AM »
Would someone have the entire heavy duty parts list of 67-70 ? I only have one page (see here under). It would be great to have the others.

Well, as part of my current refresh process on my 1967 ex A-Sedan Camaro, I have an issue with the brakes. The FIA will not accept slotted rotors, nor 2 pieces ones (unless they look exactly the same as original). I have looked for race quality JL8 replacement rotors but could not find any. The best ones are slotted, and the stock replacement ones seem to be all made in Asia and quality is said to be poor (at least for a road race use).

What do the guys in historic Trans-Am use today ?

Any input on how to find good JL8 rotors would be much appreciated.

I have recently purchased an ex. A-Sedan Camaro (1967) that raced continuously from 1972. I will enter it this season iin a new championship in Europe against the mighty BMW CSL, Ford Capri Cologne, Escort Zakspeed ...

As to get the FIA homolgation on the car, I need to prove that the elements fitted on the car today were used in period. That's where I need some help from you guys especially for the following items :

- Would someone have a picture of a dry sump system used in the 12 hours of Sebring or 24 hours of Daytona on a 1st gen Camaro between 1968 and 1972 (I known dry sump systems were allowed by the SCCA from 1971 I think)

- Front sway bar and upper A Arms : would you have any pictures of these items used in the 68-72 period ?

- Transmission oil cooler : was it used in period ? any period picture ?

- Aluminium radiator : would you have any period pictures of it beeing used during international racing in the 1968-72 period ?

Many thanks for your help.

Eric
