Did you check Team Camaro?  Lots of "modifications" there...  Pro-touring guys, too.

I have tried poly in the subframe and did not notice anything all that different but I don't push the car that hard.

On the other hand, the poly A-Frame bushings I tried are not an improvement with my near stock suspension setup. The poly bushing material is slick and allows a lot more easy movement in the front suspension on turns. The OEM rubber bushings are "fixed" and have the rubber loaded in shear(resisting rotational movement). That rubber in shear works well with the stock springs and roll bar. It makes sense that the OEM setup was tuned to the hard rubber bushings and stock roll bar. If you take away the rubber in shear's twist resistance from an otherwise stock suspension that it would allow more body roll in turns - and it does.

Different types(rubber, poly, solids) of Subframe bushings do not have different affects on handling, from my experience.
The car will handle the same with any of them.
