G-Comp Suspension: Track Tested & Proven

Speedway Motors G-Comp Nova

The G-Comp ’65 Chevy II Nova is a special project developed by the muscle car performance enthusiasts within the Speedway Motors Engineering/R&D department. The car functions as a test-bed for our new G-Comp pro-touring front suspension components. Our G-Comp suspension transformed this economy car into a true dual-purpose street/track car that is comfortable to drive around town, yet very competitive on any autocross course. Check out the video from our day at the test track and a detailed build list of the Nova below. Be sure to see this dual-purpose street/track car for yourself as it travels the Goodguys show circuit this year on our Big Rig display vehicle.

 

I'd recommend it to anyone!

I’m really happy with the engine we’ve got - I think it’s a great match for what we’re doing, I’m glad we could partner with BluePrint - I'd recommend it to anyone!

- Robby Unser describing BluePrints 454 Crate Engine

Initial Testing at Putnam Park

Initial testing on the car was performed at Putnam Park Road Course near Indianapolis. The Speedway Motors Engineering/R&D team worked alongside our friends at AFCO Racing to dial in the spring rates on the car. For comparison, they ran the Nova up against the AFCO 5th Gen Camaro test car. Our little ’65 Nova ran flawlessly, showing that the G-Comp suspension will make your Chevy II handle like a modern performance car. Check out this gallery of photos from our test day at the track:
