      You could talk to Vette Brakes products and talk to them .They have upgrades to a C-4 type suspension .I have even seen a coil over set up in some car magazines.Just a thought.

      a coil over setup we sell from ridetech is the fastest upgrade for the car, I worked at ridetech when this was in development, and this stock chassis update has proven very fast, even just this weeked the 48 hour corvette piloted by the owners were in the top of the field at Goodguys duel in scottsdale
      give me a call at the shop Suspensiongeek.com when your ready 931-231-4505 and a link to the kit ... corvette coilover kit

      hers a picture or two of the kit

      It looks like this was an ex_SCCA GT1 car. Depending on how liberal the previous owners interpretation of the rules was, it could have some good stuff under it already. Some of these guys snuck in some tricks from Guldstrand, Greenwood, etc that go well above and beyond what the stock suspension geometry is capable of. I'd be interested in seeing under it.

      That said, as with any of these builds, it depends on what you want to do, how much you want to spend and how close you want to be to the pointy end of the field. Vette Brakes is out of business, so don't even bother looking there. Van Steel, Ride Tech, and Detroit Speed are the first three that come to mind....Each with an increase in price for performance.



      I researched for over 6 months before I made my decision. I looked at all three options above. I also contacted Mike Maier's people, and several manfacturers of aftermarket chassis which use C5/6/7 components. I'd be happy to share my thoughts and findings via email. [email protected]
