The hubs are Camaro rotors with the rotor section machined off.
Now does anyone know of a store in the Bridgewater or Ewing area that has the new issue on sale yet? I still can't find it anywhere...the anticipation is killing me.

I am trying to remember to stop at the Quik Check on 31 in Ewing after work tonight to see if they have it. I'll let you know if they do since it's right down the street from TSC.

Yeah LS1 rears will work. I'm actually still running drums. And the $500 doesn't include machine work as noted in the spreadsheet.

I hit Barnes and Noble in Bridgewater, but not Borders.

Tim...I actually forgot to mention anything about the wheels. I believe 17's are a must though...and if you get really fancy and use the new 6 piston Z06 calipers from a C6 (direct bolt on for C5's) then you need 18's.

As for getting the car in a magazine...it takes a lot of hard work and pestering of editors...plus you have to have something that catches their eye.
