C6 Corvette Pro Grip Kit
Pre order Round 2 is available now. Kits will ship out in roughly 4-6 weeks (As of January 1)
The FDF Pro Grip Kit represents the pinnacle of performance for the C6's rear suspension, tailored specifically for drifting. It introduces the first-ever billet rear knuckle designed exclusively for drifting. This kit offers adjustable anti-squat, the most user-friendly camber adjustment available, and the quickest control arm removal system, ensuring repairs can be made after an impact in 5 minutes or less. Below are the detailed features of the kit:
Grip: The essence of what we all seek to maximize tire efficiency. The Pro Grip Kit provides the following options, all included:
Camber Control: Two methods for adjusting camber. The first uses flippable shims on top of the knuckle, allowing changes from -1 camber to 0 to +1 camber in just 45 seconds. The second method involves on-car adjustable points that connect the upper and lower parts to the chassis, allowing for further camber adjustments.
Toe Control: Shims on the knuckle enable you to raise or lower the outer tie rod, increasing or decreasing toe gain under compression. This feature boosts on-throttle grip and, when combined with the adjustable anti-squat, controls compression during acceleration.
Anti-Squat Control: The kit includes a unique bracket design that attaches to the subframe, offering four positions to modify your anti-squat. It requires some drilling but is worth the effort, especially when used with toe gain adjustments.
Camber Curve: The knuckle geometry has been optimized to minimize camber gain, ensuring ideal tire contact during drifting regardless of compression levels. This aspect is crucial for a high-quality grip kit.
Roll Center: The rear kit adjusts the roll center to optimize a pro drift car's ride height. Acting like a geometric sway bar, it maintains camber, tire contact, and grip in the chassis throughout corners and drifting. When paired with a sway bar, it becomes a significant advantage.
Sway Bar Options: This kit includes attachment points on both the upper and lower parts, catering to sway bar options on a professional car. This feature is designed considering users might run a completely custom sway bar, as seen on Josiah's Pro C6.
Dual Caliper Bracket Options: The kit offers three choices for rear brakes. The first is the OEM foot brake. The second combines an OEM foot brake with a secondary 4-piston Wilwood handbrake. The third option is a dual Wilwood caliper setup. All options are compatible with the Billet knuckle and can be added or changed later.
Travel Range: The kit's travel range has been expanded, allowing up to 2 inches more than OEM and aftermarket suspensions. A further travel option is available through special order, requiring custom coilovers similar to those on Josiah's C6. Nevertheless, this is a significant improvement in the travel range department.
