What looks like the rod isn't actually the rod, it's the body. The shock's working internals are in the chrome part. View that part as the same as the body on any other mono-tube for this car like a Penske, or Koni, or Bilstein.

I am a DSC and Tractive dealer, and have done a lot of the DSC Sport boxes for both the C7 and a number of Porsche's.

Note, this is not an MR shock, like what's on the C7. This is a solenoid based valve from the supplier Tractive. Similar in function, but nowhere close to the same thing. Just to get the ground work out there.

Just wait, or write your letter asking for the allowance on an AS car. Currently, it's only legal for SS cars, but again, DSC doesn't know what they're selling/replacing. So keep that in mind before you buy.

Eh, that's the shock body OD. The tube on a Corvette Bilstein is 46mm. In that video, it's just an inverted strut, which isn't anything new. It helps with bending moment as you increase the lateral load generated by the vehicle. That's a good thing for a porky RS.

You have Penske's on your C7 don't you? You don't have them listed for a C7 in your catalog.
If so I presume they cost about the same as for a C6?
I have a 16 Z51 that the lease is ending on, trying to figure out if I should keep it (what the wife wants), or get a new GS (what I want ), or keep it and wait for the C8.

I haven't done any track or AutoX with it, but it's something I liked doing before. If I keep the 16, I'm thinking I can makes some mods, shocks would be on that list.

Weighting options.

Opinions welcome........
