It started with a Detroit Speed hydroformed subframe, tubular upper and lower control arms, QUADRALink rear suspension and adjustable anti-roll- bar system with 3.89:1 gears in a full-floating rear axle assembly. Electronic RideTech Instinct shocks give the Camaro just the right stance. An award-winning RideTech TigerCage provides both an increase in chassis stiffness as well as protection for the driver and passenger. Working behind the GX3R Open Lug 18x11 and 18x12 Forgeline forged aluminum wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich Rival S tires is a quartet of Baer 14-inch Extreme 6R disc brakes. A Lingenfelter-tuned LT4 engine powers the autocrosser, along with a Bowler Transmissions- modified TREMEC T56 transmission with ZR1 gears and a Centerforce DYAD extreme-duty clutch. Rounding out the Forgeline Camaro build is: an OPTIMA Batteries Yellow Top battery; Vintage Air A/C system; LED headlights and taillights; RECARO seats; custom stereo from California Custom Sounds; a Finch Performance firewall block-off plate and shift handle; Carbon Kustoms carbon fiber hood supported by Ringbrothers hood hinges; front fenders paired with a D&Z Customs front spoiler; and a RacePak digital dash, datalogger and power distribution module. Smitty's Custom Automotive, Tiffin, Ohio, was tapped to perform the vehicle build, and Trent Van Arsdalen of Trent's Trick Upholstery, New Baltimore, Ohio, handcrafted the all-black custom interior. EARTHCRUISER Danny Adair at Vision X USA released preview photos of a project vehicle that will feature some of the company's latest lighting products. See it in the outside display area #V248 at the 2019 SEMA Show. The EarthCruiser Expedition Vehicle featuring Vision X LED lighting is designed and developed to fit in a shipping container for worldwide travel. The machine also has every amenity for long-term, self-sustained travel. presented by: booth#36227
