The Factory Five GTM uses an ultra-strong space frame and is joined by a matrix of aluminum sub-frame panels to complete a true race-car construction. Built on the strong foundation of this tough chassis is a four corner coil-over shock suspension with unequal length control arms and massive Corvette brakes. The composite body rests on top of this chassis and is a separate unstressed assembly.
The performance and success of the GTM is dependant first and foremost on the quality and strength of the frame. When the editor of Car and Driver magazine, Larry Webster, commented that the car handled the monster LS7 power “better than the Z06 Corvette”, it was due primarily to the design and strength of the space frame. Our engineering team spent over five years and countless hours on the computer and at the track to make sure the frame is stronger and more rigid than you'll ever need.
A famous person once wrote that a man has got to know his limitations. So does a company. Factory Five's success over the years has been due to understanding what we can do and what we can't. While the CAD/CAM revolution has indeed made it possible for small, technically proficient design and engineering companies to do great things, it hasn't changed the reality that only a company with massive resources like GM can design complex mechanical systems.
That's why our team relies upon the proven running gear from GM's World-class Corvette and Corvette Z-06. Major complex assemblies include Engine, Computer engine controls, fuel system, and front and rear suspension/braking.
The GTM is designed to accept GM LS series engines. From the proven 350 HP LS1 to the potent 430 HP LS3s and 500+ HP LS7s.
We selected the tough and lightweight aluminum Corvette control arms and matched them to proprietary frequency selective dampening coil-over shocks and springs developed with the team at KONI Shocks. The FSD KONIs deliver razor sharp handling at modest speeds, while maintaining Supercar manners at Supercar pace.
