Active Suspension Arrives

MSRC control Corvette engineers got a lot closer to active suspension nirvana with the introduction of the Magnetic Selective Ride Control (RPO F55; $1,695.00) introduced in 2003. It was miles ahead of the previous Selective Real Time Damping (RPO F45; $1,695.00) which also adjusted the suspension but was slow doing so. The Magnetic Selective Ride Control (MSRC) equipped Corvettes had an advanced shock absorber system which featured a fluid with tiny iron particles. An electronically controlled magnet changed the fluid in a way that caused it to flow through the orifices at a controlled rate. This had the effect of making the shock absorbers quickly adjustable for all driving conditions. The system had two modes: Active and Sport.

Left: without MSRC; Right: with MSRC. The difference is obvious; with all tires contacting the ground handling is greatly improved.

Ride quality was excellent with the MSRC, which is where the advantage of being able to quickly adjust the shocks really comes into its own. MSRC was not available with the Z06 which is probably a reflection of its pure performance intentions.
