Re: Chevy SS Pace car catches fire

someone forget a grommet when running wires through a metal part? Did something slide over and touch the battery cables? (thinking battery is in right side of trunk)

Get out and drive the truck this summer and have some fun!
It sucks not being able to hear!

LWB trucks rule, if you don't think so measure your SWB!
After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

Re: Chevy SS Pace car catches fire

How can you tell them apart anymore? I remember when a Chevy looked like a Chevy and you could tell all of the car's makes and they even ran the motor that belonged with the body.

I was thinking/hoping the same thing. Even though it's just a pace car, the car might have to be modified to meet safety (lol, right?) standards to run on the NASCAR track. The car is built/assembled in Australia for GM by Holden. It's good this wasn't during the 500, it's already going to be a PR mess for GM.

Re: Chevy SS Pace car catches fire

The battery pack in the trunk that was used for the Whelen safety lights on the roof caught fire.

Nope but the haters and the uninformed will be quick to blame Chevy.

Why? The last I checked the toyota nascar represented the only car actually made in the usa.

Apparently ford got back in the game with the fusion being made in michigan.
