Speedtech ExtReme Subframes
Mustang II suspension and Corvette Spindle based geometry are things of the past! …
Some “performance” suspensions out there are based on Mustang II suspension, a suspension that was developed for a lightweight compact car using 1970’s technology, and at a time when performance handling wasn’t a part of the vocabulary of most American cars. In an effort to handle better, other performance suspension systems have based their design around Corvette (or Corvette Copy) spindles and geometry. While that 1990’s technology has proven to work better than the Mustang II, Speedtech and ATS have a thing for doing things even better.
Today’s serious Pro Touring cars demand handling well beyond those other designs as the racing circuit becomes more and more competitive. While others continue to play with the outdated and overrated, we felt it’s time to lead the pack and move forward, again! In early 2015 Speedtech’s Research and Development crew developed a whole new suspension line, introducing the Best of the Best, our new ExtReme frames and suspension!
Implementing what we’ve learned through years of development and testing produced a totally new, optimized, push the envelope type of suspension that outperforms anything else in the Pro Touring market.
We needed to achieve the optimum front dynamic roll center for any suspension strategy the customer wants to run, and we did it, it turned out perfect. This combined with the best Ackerman of any available front end, optimum camber gain and minimal jacking effect.
What does this mean to you? This makes these the Best handling, steering & driving frames available. They are an upgrade from frankly any full chassis or front subframe in the Pro Touring market today.
We’ve spent countless hours developing this totally new suspension that will not only fit right, but it will out handle, out cruise, and have the most killer stance out of any other production frames on the market! Using the latest technology in computer modeling and simulation software all aspects of the suspension geometry were calculated and tested until the best possible numbers were achieved. Our new ExtReme chassis’ handling abilities are optimized for both street and track situations. This means a better handling and better riding vehicle than has ever been achieved before.
