    Default Shockworks : Behind the new FPV Suspension

    I was reading the motor magazine yesterday and came across an article on the new FPV GTR and was pleasantly surprised to see that one of our sponsors Shockworks is working closely with FPV to improve the handling of the new FPV GTR Spec'd falcons.



    Congratulations Chris on producing a great suspension package that has been recognised by Ford Australia as being worthy of inclusion in a factory vehicle.

    i was lucky enough to go for a spin in this while the suspension was getting tuned, apart from the neck snapping torque punch from the massive motor i was amazed by the level of grip it had from the suspension, i was sitting up front and chris in the back, brett was driving. chris and i were having a talk about this being the first car that actually made me understand the whole "hoo hah" about cubes etc and brett started doing slaloms and i hit my head on the B pillar , chris then told his dad to let somebody know before doing that again.
    seriously handled really good, much better then any falcon should. i'd think twice before taking on one around the mountains.
    as usual though, on full soft felt like an uprated OEM setup.
    good work

    Wow, congratulations guys! Really show's how good the product is when an OEM manufacturer is getting you to help them out.
