the real performance of a vehicle is easiest to measure on the racetrack
What does a Clubsport vehicle body mean at RPR Performance?
For us, a Clubsport vehicle is a sporty car optimized for track use, which can not only travel to the racetrack on its own wheels, but also remains suitable for everyday use – possibly with restrictions in terms of comfort and the usability of seats and luggage compartment. In particular, this requires perfect TÜV conformity, and the option of retrofitting the modifications is also ideal.”
But where should you start with Clubsport tuning? As a C6 Z06 owner, you don’t have to complain about a lack of power or torque. The power-to-weight ratio is also already optimized thanks to the aluminium chassis. We therefore have no specific need for action in these areas for the time being.
In addition to an optimized brake system, the seats with the corresponding 4-point belts are virtually “your life insurance” and ensure that you can also feel your car. This is because such an optimized bucket seat holds the driver securely in place even during high lateral acceleration, without the driver having to search for support. If you really have to hold on to the steering wheel, you’ll never get a clean line. A relaxed, relaxed sitting posture can easily make you one second faster per lap.
Rollover protection is of course essential for safety on board. At the very least, we are talking here about a rear-supported, screwed-in bar, which is regularly even referred to as a Clubsport bar. This is extended in the bolted-in roll cage with side protection and struts. A welded-in safety cell is even safer – and also improves vehicle rigidity. This welding cell offers the greatest possible safety – but is also very cost-intensive due to the high effort involved.
Since 2011, we have achieved several podium finishes and class victories with our own racing team, RPR-Racing, in the endurance championship (VLN/NLS) as well as in the legendary 24H races at the Nürburgring. We even had different makes of vehicle set up.
You too can benefit from this experience. It is the basis for the construction and use of your vehicle, whether in motorsport or as a track tool.
Safety – Cooling – Chassis – Brakes;
We know what is necessary!
The Corvette, especially the C6 Z06 based on an aluminum chassis with its powerful 7ltr. engine is predestined for speed and driving pleasure. However, in the standard configuration it lacks the appropriate cooling for the engine, steering, gearbox and differential!
