If you’re a lover of the fifth generation Camaro, then chances are that you were at this past Camaro5 Fest III in Indianapolis, Indiana hosted by www.camaro5.com. Starting Thursday night August 2nd with a less-than-leisurely car cruise through suburban Indianapolis, leading back to the packed parking lot for an impromptu cruise-in at the host hotel, Skip & Jeff Lee of HammerHead Housings were on-hand for all the festivities.
Friday and Saturday included a full schedule of drag racing, Pedder’s autocross, car show and vendor midway with a special area with many of GM’s Camaro team to hangout and talk to owners and enthusiasts. Saturday’s fun was followed by an open house Saturday night at RPM Transmissions in Anderson, IN just north of Indy. At the show, the HammerHead Housing crew had a great time displaying their new 12-bolt based HammerHead Housing for the 5th Gen. Camaro at The Driveshaft Shop booth.
In the Driveshaft Shop’s booth was HammerHead’s fabricated prototype, model and finished casting displaying “concept to completion” of the HammerHead, as well as Hendrix Engineering’s 950-horsepower Whipplecharged 454 LSX powered Camaro. Hendrix’s Camaro was also the original test vehicle for the Driveshaft Shop’s 9-inch Ford kit, swapped over to the HammerHead with an aluminum driveshaft and freed up 20HP over the 9-inch Ford with a carbon fiber driveshaft. Since then Hendrix has abused the HammerHead for about 1000 miles on the street and has performed street, dragstrip, dyno, and sound testing.
The HammerHead weighs in at 78lbs fully setup, an amazing 29lbs. less than the DSS 9-inch housing, which is the lightest rear currently on the market, and has also tested an average of 3.5 db quieter than the 9-inch. The HammerHead will also fit with Driveshaft Shop’s stock length replacement axles. So if you have already bought the heavy duty DSS axles and/or driveshaft (aluminum, chromoly, or carbon fiber) and you break your housing or gear set, all you’ll need to buy is the HammerHead differential and swap it out and be back on the road in no time.
If you missed HammerHead at the DSS booth, you’ve got several more chances to see what is quickly becoming the aftermarket IRS housing of choice in person, as HammerHead will be at LS Fest in September, the LSX Shootout in October, and November’s internationally-famous SEMA show.
