GSPEED & PENSKE COIL OVER KIT | CHEVROLET CORVETTE C5 1997-2004
Over the last 6 years, GSpeed has invested heavily into the corvette performance and racing market. As Aero loads and the need to ride over curbs increased, so did the need for a proper damper engineered specifically for the C5/C6 platform. After testing many off the shelf shocks, we quickly realized that what we wanted didn’t exist. Enter Penske. Penske shocks are a clean slate for an engineer, and a large one at that. We weighed every unsprung part of the suspension and calculated aero loads from wind tunnel testing to determine what we needed as a baseline. After a few revisions and moving the location of the knee, we had what we felt was the best shock package that would be 99% at 99% of the tracks for Corvettes with or with out aero, between 2900 and 3400lbs. This same shock package helped power the GSpeed TT3 C5 to the regional NASA Texas lap record at COTA, and then the NASA National TT3 championship at COTA for 2018. This year we followed up with NASA National ST2 championship at Mid-Ohio with the same car and suspension package!
While many rush to bring their products to market, we test and validate our parts to ensure our customers highest satisfaction. With tests conducted at over 20 different tracks in the last 24 months from some of the fastest C5 and C6 racers, you can rest assured you have the best shock package to fit the racers needs. Have something not normal? Remember that BIG clean slate? We can valve to meet your demands.
