    Hey Jimmy ,
    With the Ride Tech Tru Turn Steering System ,
    I've got better negative camber gain , which results in more front grip , and my bumpsteer is gone , so the car doesn't move around so much over rough surfaces .
    I think it is a great low- buck improvement .

    Thanks Jeff. Now how about the actual performance gains? Any real idea? My front end is pretty much stock with a bigger bar.

    Well , I'm still running mid-pack in all areas , but the car is lot more controllable .
    It just drives and steers better . ( Probably because of the bumpsteer correction and steering geometry )

    On my first trip out with the Tru Turn (at Run to the Old South) , I had oversteer and the rear of the car was loose ( Mostly because the rear tires were worn out ).

    I put new tires on the rear for the Midwest Musclecar Challenge and the overall grip improved ..
    My problem was with the heat , I couldn't run as hard as I wanted to , because the engine was getting too hot and the Power Steering pump was raising cain ..

    I really do like the way the car steers and drives for Street Driving . The Tru Turn really helped with that ..It just drives better .. I've driven it to work a lot lately ..

    Honestly, just trying to figure out if it is worth it for the performance gain.
    They gave me that gift certificate from ridetech at MMCC and trying to decide on making the Camaro really handle or bags on the 58!! LOL!

    Jeff it's an LS7 with the factory dry sump and ARE tank and yes it does rev quick almost too quick, you need to be gentle with the throttle or it just blows the tires off.
