Ken Thwait's Z28

Raymond's Performance has been busy lately. They're currently installing a set of Ridetech Triple Adjustable CoilOvers on Ken Thwait's Z/28. Here's a few good shots of the install.

That is really awesome. I'd be interested to see how the dssv dampers compare to dialed-in coilovers.

We are so lucky to have Raymonds shop here in the Indy area. He has done all the work on my car. His shop is heavily Vette/Camaro driven. I have also been lucky enough to see Kens car up close and personal. What a beast of a car, and what a driver. Ken already won the Optima Challenge series this year, will make it even harder for the guys to keep up with him on the track now.

I had a chance to see the install up close as I stopped at Raymonds on my way to PRI. Nice and clean. Can't wait to hear what Ken says about the change from the Z dampers to the Ridetech's. I'm sure he'll have plenty of good things to say about it.

I'm not sure if Ken won any of the qualifying rounds, but is was actually Danny Popp that took the title this year in his Corvette. And for the record, Danny runs JRI dampers, as do the 3 other domestic cars in the top 6. That's 4 of the top 6 cars on JRI dampers...

2014 Optima Challenge Results.

Actually, Ken won the Optima USCA National Points Championship for 3000lb+ class. Danny won the Optima Invitational in Vegas. Both wins are quite impressive.

Ahhh, thanks for clearing that up!

And yes, very impressive! Congratulations to Ken and to everyone who's competitive at that level!
