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
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
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.
