Title: PTFB Comp suspension
Post by: 79T/Aman on July 28, 2019, 12:25:32 PM
PTFB's Comp suspension has been upgraded through the years to try and keep up with the improvements in tire technology and advancements made by our competitors in the link suspension department.
At PTFB we've been focusing on refining the good old leaf spring and it has been paying off, our Comp leaf springs have not changed  in the past 3-4 years and I feel we've produced a product that is as good as any suspension available on the market, and this past weekend has been another testament to that statement with Mike Goodman and co-driver Geoffrey Wolpert put the Pro-Touring F-Body Camaro in the winner's circle at the UMI Challenge against some tough competition, all on modified non stock suspension, Mike's Camaro is a true street driven car with full stock interior and all PTFB bolt on suspension.

Good stuff Dave.

We're they running different classes at this event? 

I saw UMI post on social media about the event but I can't find anything for results or how they split up cars/drivers.

Very nice Dave!  Out of curiosity, do the comp leafs run at the same ride height as the GTs?

No typically the GT will run lower due to having the same arch but softer rate, however the Comp has less busing resistance with the spherical bearing so depending on how much the rear of the car weighs it may be a wash as to ride height between the two.
