The Chassis for the Pro Street Corvettes
Art Morrison Enterprises GT Sport Chassis ®
The Art Morrison chassis used in the Pro Street Corvettes will make even the most discriminating sports car driver envious. Handling performance is enhanced through the use of C6 Corvette Independent Front Suspension components vastly improving the handling over the stock 1957 Corvette suspension.
The camber, caster, roll center and scrub radius on the Art Morrison Enterprises GT Sport Chassis ® has been re-designed from the C6 Corvette suspension in the following areas:
- "The Swing Arm Arc has been shortened to better maintain camber angle while cornering."
- "The static roll center height was reduced to minimize side scrub and jacking force."
These modifications have improved straight line stability and enhanced ride quality. The static caster modifications were made to promote a crisper steering 'feel'.
"The center of gravity of the GT Sport Chassis has been lowered allowing the Pro Street Corvettes to have a lower stance. This is made possible through the use of through-frame passageways for the exhaust system. The lower center of gravity is yet another feature that will give the Pro Street Corvettes superior handling characteristics.
The rear suspension of the GT Sport Chassis has by no means been ignored and boasts a triangulated 4-ar rear suspension. This in itself is an improvement over the rear suspension of the C5 'Vette by using a special triangulated 4-bar rear suspension instead of an Independent Rear Suspension. The triangulated 4-bar setup performs well in terms of acceleration control and provides excellent lateral stability.
Pro Street Corvettes have designed a torsion type anti-sway bar system to further enhance the handling characteristics of the Pro Street Corvette.
