GeigerCars has buttoned up the new Corvette C8. The US car specialists from Munich have under the tuning label "Geiger Performance“A pretty extensive package for the US athlete at the start that is supposed to optimize the C8 in every respect. The tuner installs a one developed and manufactured in Germany Prepreg carbon spoiler kit on the front and rear apron (Front spoiler + diffuser) with parts certificate that only becomes apparent at second glance due to the seamless integration. The kit optimizes the aerodynamics and is supplemented with specially manufactured Airducts for the front bumper. The air ducts improve the flow of air under the vehicle, and this creates additional contact pressure on the front axle.

And you also have a new chassis soon at the beginning. It is currently still in development, but the cooperation with KW Suspensions already suggests that, of course, only absolute high-end technology will find its way into it. In the form of your own "Geiger club sport chassis“For track day racers.
With the help of a professional racing driver Daniel Keilwitz we are currently still working on the coordination of the spring and damper characteristics and the additional uniball support bearings. However, that is still the case KW suspension variant 5 coilover suspension available for the C8. This comes with displacement piston technology and has separate rebound and compression stages for the low and high-speed ranges 4-fold adjustable. You can find more information about the chassis HERE. No matter which variant it is, there is always a suitable one Teilegutachten.
Chassis struts and stainless steel strut bar
There are also newly developed ones CAD chassis struts and also one Stainless steel strut bar for the front axle is available. This gives the C8 significantly more stability and thus a more precise response behavior of the suspension damping. And replace it in the engine compartment, which has been in the rear since the C8 Stainless steel struts with a cross connection the factory-made aluminum struts. And since we are just talking about the technology under the sheet metal, there is also an optional LITE BLOX battery for the C8. It enables a weight saving of over 20 kg and can be exchanged 1: 1 for the standard starter battery.
New aluminum rims are also available
And of course a new set of wheels should not be missing. In fact, they are two. The Alus come from OZ Racing and hear - with focus on the road - on the name Leggera HLT (available in 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the back) and are equipped with Michelin tires (245/30R20 & 305/25R21). On the other hand, they are more suitable for the racetrack OZ Ultraleggera (19 inch front and 20 inch rear), which is a weight saving compared to the OEM Corvette rims 20 kg enable. What doesn't really sound like much is in terms of reducing the unsprung masses in combination with the built-in masses Pirelli P Zero Trofeo R-Semislicks (245/35R19 & 305/30R20) a guarantee for a few seconds of time savings.
complete AP racing track braking system
And also with regard to the braking system there is two upgrades. On the one hand, the factory-fitted Z51 brake is also optimized Steel flex lines and sports brake pads and if you want a special setup for the racetrack, you can alternatively have a complete one AP racing track brake systeme can be installed on the front and rear axles. The AP system consists of each 6-piston calipers with two-part discs and also Stainless steel brake hoses are included. The upgrade brake with the standard wheels and the OZ rims mentioned above is suitable, and if you want, you can still have one on the rear axle CAD brake cooling integrate. And for the cabin? There is one harness bar for attaching a 4-point belt. If we get more information, there will of course be an update for this report.
