Aug 26, 2008 update to the Triumph Group 44 GT6 project car

Triumph Tricks

We are not sure how much of this was done by Group 44, but initial conversations with Group 44 crew chief Lanky Foushee suggest that all these mods were made by the team.

Last night we tore into the rear suspension of our project GT6. While outwardly it looks like a standard GT6 back here, upon closer inspection there’s a lot more trick stuff.

Our GT6+ has had its shock relocated to the inner fender well. Meanwhile, the frame itself and the upright for the original shock location have been massaged to clear the bigger-than-stock half shafts. The trailing arms are super-slick and equipped with Heim joints. The original rubber lower control arm bushings have been replaced with steel concentric bushings, and the shocks are Konis. The backing plates on the brakes have been drilled out and the stub axles seem to be modified as well.

Guys....the GT6+ came with the rear shocks mounted to the inner fender well to clear the rotoflex donuts! Earlier and later GT6s mounted to the frame. I've actually converted mine to attach to the frame outriggers, which are much more "solid"

You are right. I learned that after I wrote that. Sorry.
