Steering, suspension and brake systems come from the C4 Corvette.

HRE in Vista, makes beautiful wheels that would look much better than the Photoshop simulation you see here.


There are lots of aftermarket parts upgrades for the C4 including, Bear Brakes and Bilstein shocks. As well as custom shops, like Art's, that add Lambo style tilt up doors.

Factory Five in Wareham, MA makes a GTM chassis for a mid-engine V-8 using C5 Corvette spindles, hubs, control arms, rotors etc. The wheelbase is 101 inches and the Track (front/rear) is 60.5 / 62 inches. I spoke with Mike who is an engineer at Factory Five and the design is on computer using Solid works and can be modified for our application.

Jerry Sackett built this custom chassis for his Pro Street Pantera.
