All my Cortex stuff is like that too. I don't know whether to put them on the car or in a display case!This picture was straight out of the box! The combination of the aluminum components of the shocks and the Cortex brackets is stunning. Makes me want to mount them on the doors where you can actually see them all the time!
I’m gonna need more than fancy shocks to have a fighting chance in a sea of GT350 sharks!Dangit, you can't get all these cool upgrades when I'm going to be in the same class! But seriously, those are beautiful as is the car. Can't wait to see how you like them!
Exactly, 2.25” hole saw with Seals-It two piece rubber grommet. Here’s a pic of an install by Vorshlag.I just have to ask: how do you plan to pass the remote reservoirs through the bottom to the inside of the car? From the looks of the s197 trunk, I suppose it involves a hole saw and some rubber grommets?
That’s correct - the kit that Shelby is selling uses the Cortex strut housing and shock brackets. In fact, my setup came with 2 sets of logo inserts for the adjuster knobs - one with the Shelby logo and one with the Cortex logo.I'd bet the Cortex Penske setup for the S197 is based on the Shelby/Penske package for the S550, that have strut housings suspiciously similar to Cortex units. Don't know if the S197 valving & spring rates went through the same shaker rig development Shelby did for the S550. But I figure Fillip can make a pretty good guess at what works.
Thanks for looking out Jason! I’ll make the adjustment. Shake down tomorrow at AutoClub Speedway interior course, SCCA Track Night in America.Don't put the clamp in the middle of the canister. You want to clamp on the ends, outside of the piston travel range. There is a chance of deforming the canister in the middle and causing the piston to stick.
