CHALLENGER SRT8: MAKE THAT HEMI HANDLE: Hotchkis TVS systems for the 2011/2012 Challenger SRT8 offer an easy bolt-on for improved stance and handling
Santa Fe Springs, Calif. – The SRT8 Dodge Challenger is one of the best looking cars on the road, with retro styling and powerful Hemi performance. Now SRT8 owners can relive the glory days of Trans-Am racing by putting their Challengers on the road with a race-ready suspension from Hotchkis Sport Suspension.
Despite its great looks, the Challenger is a heavy car, and suffers from excessive under steer and limited roll control in stock form. The Hotchkis Sport Suspension Stage 1 TVS system offers SRT8 owners a sleek lowered stance and dramatically improved handling for superior driver control. R&D engineers used track testing data and real world driving to develop a balanced handling system, comfortable enough for the street, but well balanced for the track.
The system is comprised of 1” lowered higher rate sport coil springs which provide a lowered stance, dramatically improved handling and comfortable driver control thanks to a lower center of gravity. Hotchkis Performance Springs were developed as a complete front and rear balanced system, giving the Challenger an aggressive look and brilliant handling.
As part of the TVS, springs are paired with front and rear lightweight, hollow sway bars offering 1.5 (38mm) (100% stiffer than stock) Front and 3/4” (19mm) (150% stiffer than stock) Rear. The Hotchkis sport sway bar package increases front/rear roll stiffness giving the car crisp, quick turn-in response. The dreaded understeer is eliminated and the handling becomes comfortably neutral with added traction during cornering.
Hotchkis tested numerous models during the R&D process and the SRT8 kits do not require Nivomat replacement as they are designed to work with the SRT8's Bilstein Active Damping shocks.
All 2011/2012 Challenger components are manufactured in the USA, come with complete hardware, greasable bushings and are finished off in a durable powder coated finish. Optional heavy-duty billet swaybar mounts are available for all Dodge kits.
