CAR AND DRIVER WRITE-UP:
The 2017 COPO features a laundry list of specific parts and modifications designed for competing in the NHRA’s Stock Eliminator classes.
As you would expect with a car of such low production volume, each COPO Camaro is built by hand starting with production hardware, including the same body in white used for production models. At that point, things take a decidedly high-performance turn with the addition of numerous strength-enhancing and weight-saving components. A beefy solid rear axle employing an aluminum center section, a lightweight steel spool, and 40-spline, gun-drilled axle shafts replaces the factory car’s independent setup, and suspension duties fall to an adjustable coil-over strut setup in front and a four-link rear suspension with double-adjustable coil-over shocks and a stabilizer bar. Lightweight, drag-racing manual (that means unassisted by a vacuum booster or other power means) four-wheel disc brakes handle the deceleration duties. A custom-built manual steering rack helps keep the front wheels pointed straight down the strip, and for the sake of safety a fuel cell replaces the factory car’s fuel tank. Finally, the wire harness has been specifically tailored for the demands of racing.
