    corvette suspension

    Ok didnt see anything about vette suspension so heres my prob...

    when i do motor work im plannin on going all out and i dont have you know $20k to dump right now...

    as we all know even pretty much stock ls1 has plenty of power to come loose on a launch (last night i rolled on the throttle leaving a local street race in first and just couldnt hook up and was getting alot of wheel hop)... ok so i plan on doing a lil work like cai and so forth to get the vette running a bit better, but i think i can get quite a bit faster with suspension work...

    so what is out there to reduce wheel hop and improve traction in a C5 without loosing the handling my z51 suspension gives me?

    p.s. and better tires are deffinately comming once i get rid of the tread on these...

    hmmm, my first thought is to get the urethane transaxle mount which reduces transxaxle movement.

    This is off of the topic, but you don't happen to live in fort Smith do you? I saw a mean looking hartop C5 the other day, it looked like it had black wheels.
