      It looks pretty but it all boils down to price point. If its anywhere near $9k you still have to factor in front suspension ,which from them is another $7k . That's the price of a complete frame swap from places like RS and Swartz. Plus its nothing new, places like Heidts etc already make a irs and people have been making there own for years now. I'd really like to see some real world data to back it up, not just because someone says its the best new thing. Numbers don't lie, but it is a really nice professional looking set up.

      Yeah I hear ya Build It Break It. However, this AMEs model stands apart from other IRS systems I have seen. The engineering and design looks to be better.

      For some real world testing take a look at the new Super Chevy magazine. the AME's test car goes head to head with the new Camaro SS on some track tests and it outperforms it.

      Yes...

      I just called and talked to AM. It can also use the stock 5th Gen Camaro rear end. The rear spindles are also 5th Gen Camaro. Axles look like they are from The DriveShaft shop.

      They said a couple of weeks. I suspect it will be somewhere between $7500-8000. The Strange diff is over $3k...plus axles...plus spindles...plus all the control arms...etc...

      8K would be very reasonable. Wonder how well it puts power down?

      13k is what it said in the recent super Chevy magazine.

      The stock 5th gen camaro diff is not as strong as some think. A lot of 5th gen owners replace the stock diff when they add any real tq/hp to the car.

      Overall, the rear looks very promising.

      Yes, but the ZL1 rear should be much stronger and has a 9.9" ring gear.

      I wonder why they chose the 5th gen route and not 9". The IRS 9" solutions seem to be less expensive.

      Also, since this kit uses 5th Gen Camaro hubs, the bolt pattern is 5x120mm.

      Like I said earlier, if it is 13k just for just the rear end it wouldn't make sense for the average Joe. Factor in $7k for AM front end and that's $20k..... Its a nice set up but doesn't seem practical price wise. Nice to look at tho

      No aftermarket IRS out there is catered toward the "average joe" price wise.. Gotta pay to play!

      Just part out an RX7 or a Tbird!

      I'm not saying give it away but at a price point of $8k for a complete kit seems more reasonable is all....

      The rear diff is an S-60 9.75" ring gear Dana by Strange in their custom aluminum casting. I believe it's stronger than a Ford 9". The overall layout is close to a 5th gen Camaro, uses fifth gen aluminum outer carriers (castings), but they are machined to take the stronger/larger ZR1 bearing units. The half-shafts are Drive Shaft Shop 5th gen beef up units rated for over 1400hp.

      It is amazing to drive!

      It will be an option for all of their frames.
