Home' Australian Automotive Aftermarket Magazine : Australian Automotive Aftermarket e-Zine - Oct 13 Contents New applications: Bilstein B6 and Bilstein B16 PSS10 for American sports coupé.
Porsche Carrera Cup Australia rookie Renee Gracie has welcomed new sponsorship from Brake Friction Australia's core brand Bremtec.
The Chevrolet Camaro has been a source of fascination to lovers of US
sports cars since 1966.
The arrival of the fifth-generation model in 2009 saw the original muscle
car from the GM group finally come of age.
The performance yield of the bullish Camaro is particularly impressive,
with its 6.2-litre engine delivering 432PS of power from eight cylinders.
The job of applying this power to the road can now be assumed by the
Bilstein B16 PSS10 coilover suspension kit.
A further addition to the suspension specialist company's range is the
high performance Bilstein B6 for the 'Bad Boy', the name fans gave to the
The Bilstein B16 PSS10 goes hand-in-hand with the Chevrolet Camaro
like a cowboy and his Stetson.
The coilover suspension kit ideally supplements the already outstanding
standard Camaro equipment by adding extra safety, dynamism and
Following extensive driving tests, the Bilstein experts adapted the high
performance shock absorbers to the precise characteristics of the American
Bad Boy, adding unrivalled flexibility to the pure joy of driving.
The ten level damping force adjustment of the Bilstein B16 PSS10
allows the sports coupé to adapt its grip and road holding perfectly to the
individual tastes of the driver.
Once the kit has been fitted, the bump and rebound level can be
individually selected via a thumbwheel.
The monotube gas pressure and upside down technology used in the
Bilstein B16 PSS10 for the Chevrolet Camaro optimises directional and
braking stability and ensures dynamic, as well as safe, cornering ability.
The lowering range of 30 to 60 millimetres for the front and rear axles
not only gives the car an even sportier appearance, but also significantly
improves handling and yields a successful combination of highly precise
driving dynamics and comfort.
A flexible height adjustment of up to 30 millimetres is no problem for
the Bilstein B16 PSS10.
The round thread of the coilover suspension ensures that changes can
be easily made.
The Bilstein B6 high performance shock absorber for the Chevrolet
Camaro was set for launch in August to give the muscle car an extra touch
of refinement, further improving the control of the vehicle and giving the
driver a feeling of safety at all times.
With the monotube gas pressure design and proven upside-down
technology, the shock absorbers treat the driver to greater traction and
precision handling with damping ability always in reserve and there is no
need for an extra spring change.
However, if desired, Bilstein has the superior OEM quality Bilstein B3
car coil springs in its portfolio.
