In the late '80s Doug Rippie discovered that what was ideal for the street wasn't necessarily the best thing for the race track. Getting the Corvette to squat during acceleration could actually be a good thing. The idea is that as you exit a corner you want more weight transfer to the rear. This gives you a little extra traction on exit. Now you can just reverse this process when you brake on corner entry. A little extra transfer to the nose plants the front tires just a little bit better. The factory bracket is on the right. The one on the left is from Doug Rippie.
