Help and advice on building a new CMC '84 Camaro

Hi,

I'm an advisor for an high school ROP welding class who is starting a Motorsports club for the high school kids. We have decided to build a CMC car and currently have an '84 Z-28 Camaro. I would appreciate any type of help and advice for buildup of this car. I have 7 students involved right now and expect quite a few more as the project progresses. Any type of write-up and pictures describing how you may have built your car would help. Most of these kids know very little about cars and it's is quite rewarding seeing them learn.

Thanks in advance for you time and help,

Chris

Chris,

 

I spend a lot of weekends water skiing at Lake McClure and could readily start some weekend a day early and meet with your class. I could also be talked into dragging my car along for show and tell. Email me at [email protected] if you are interested.

 

Regards,

Mike

Hi Chris, I drive an '84 Trans-Am CMC car. I don't know where you are, however, I am in Davis and you are welcome to stop by and check it out. Please have your group come out to the track so they can meet us and see all the cars!

We've just built an '83, and will let you know how things go at it's first race at BW. Too late, I was told not to use urethane bushings in the rear control arms, so maybe you can save buying those.

 

My son is a TA for the auto shop at his high school-today we learned we need caster camber plates as stock didn't give us what we wanted.

 

We also built a new motor, 5.0, stock for the 83, had a valve job done, and put in the Edelbrock cam, intake and Holley Carb. All we could get on the dyno was 199 hp and 258ft-lbs or so.

 

Lastly, and this comes from 6 years in stock cars...don't skimp on the cage or the seat. More is better should you get hit in the driver's door.

 

Good luck and have fun.
