Well, a 60% rear weight bias on a Camaro would be quite impressive. Are there other mods meant specifically to reach this goal?
This would be parked with me and everything in it.

The Camaro has aftermarket light weight control arms, brakes, spindles and axles. I also removed the front core support and inner fenders etc. and replaced them with a chromoly tube light weight front end. It still has steel fenders but does have a fiberglass hood. The engine transmission is 5" higher and 6" back from the stock location, The front seats also sit back 6"

The rear end is also modified with a light weight 4-link chassis that sits 2" higher than the normal install height. It also has a 9" Ford rear end with a lightweight 3rd member. Total ride height is dropped 6" from stock for better aero.
