qa1's for the drag strip, koni's for the turns. Take your pick.

Basically what this guy said.
you cannot set your Camaro for both the 1/4 and for canyon carving as the setups are the exact opposite.
for the 1/4 you need soft shocks and springs to get more traction, while making your car into a canyon carver you need MUCH stiffer springs and shocks that can handle the stiffness of the springs, that is, not having your body bouncing off of the bumps like a pogo stick.
If you want to do both 1/4 times and canyon carving, you'll need to compromise for both, which will get you a compromised ride.
Now, I've heard of F-body owners who have cut 1.6 60ft times on Koni's but I figure that's due to someone who knows what they're doing, that is, GREAT techniques for the 1/4 mile.
