GM® 6L80E 6-speed Tapshift
The 6L80E is the latest version of GM’s smooth shifting 6-speed gear box. The 6L80E allows for tap shift functionality with a brain that learns the driver’s habits and adapts to each individual situation depending on gas pedal and driver’s input. Built to handle up to 700 lb.ft of torque. Maximum engine input torque for the 6L80 is 440 ft.lbs. and the maximum output torque is 664 ft.lbs.
Power is nothing without control. Whilst engineering our LS3 upgrade package, the braking system was at the forefront of its development. Utilizing race-developed technology in the form of Tarox® 6 piston billet alloy callipers (front and rear) and 330mm vented and grooved discs, you have the reassurance of vastly improved safety and performance gains over standard Defender brakes.
To greatly enhance the ride quality we fit Eibach® progressive springs, either at standard ride height or lowered 1”, which noticeably stiffens up the ride without compromising the quality.
These springs are matched to Bilstein® B6 adjustable shocks which deliver industry-leading, race dominating performance. Custom tuned Eibach® anti-roll bars complete the handling package to provide spirited cornering capability.
A completely custom T304 stainless steel system developed specifically for our LS3 Arkonik Defenders. These exhausts have been crafted by hand, tig-welded and use a mandrel bend to increase airflow.
This system not only looks great but it delivers every single one of those 430 horses like a well-versed orchestra; balancing a pleasing burble under normal driving conditions and climaxing in an unmistakable, spine-tingling growl under acceleration from the 3.5" rolled tailpipe.
DakarZero is a super-strong 8.5Jx18" aluminium wheel dedicated and tested for off-road and rally-raid applications. The spokes internal to the tire edge protect the mechanical parts from stone chips and sand, whilst the wide hump profile allows the use of tires with a low inflation pressure that increase the stability of the car even in the most demanding conditions. Moreover, these rims exude that ubër cool motorsport vibe whether you are traversing rocky terrain or the urban jungle.
We achieve the right power window set up because we use factory units mated to the correct inner door cards to ensure proper operation and alignment.
For a factory look and function we use laser-etched switches with full sized rockers.
