    3rd Gen Camaro Frames

    My 85 has frame connectors. What is the difference between a frame connector and frame braces? Which should be used for 600hp? or does it make any difference?

    I don't know about frame braces, but with 600 ponies, frame connectors would be a good idea.

    Ditto on welding the connecters and installing a minimum 6 point cage with door bars. You would be ASTOUNDED at how much more consistent your setup will be on a stiff base.

    This car is a 1/8 drag car only. I have the frame connectors welded. I saw an ad for frame braces that's why I wondered about them compared to connectors.
