Trans Am GT Champion- Eagleton Mustang

CorteX Racing Spec Mustang Wins Title

Congratulations Roger Eagleton the 2019 West Coast GT Champion!
Cheers to Beau Boarders on Podium win!

It is great to see talented drivers like Roger and Beau lead the Trans Am GT class equipped with our CorteX Racing Spec Mustang SMG suspension system.


Oct 5th 2019

Hawaii resident Roger Eagleton was crowned Trans Am presented by Pirelli West Coast Champion in the GT Class.

The West Coast Championship GT Class teams had not seen competitive action on the track since Portland, Oregon at the end of July when Roger claimed second spot on the podium to give him a total of 125 points and the lead in the Championship heading to Texas.

Roger’s weekend in the No. 98 Five Star Property Management / Energy Real Estate Ford Mustang began with a time of 2:38:784 in practice, a time he bettered with 2:35:310 in qualifying to claim the second spot in class on the grid behind pacesetter Joe Bogetich (No. 65 Westover Controls Chevrolet Camaro SS).

Although Bogetich then went flag-to-flag for the win, it was Roger Eagleton who claimed the overall GT West Coast Championship with his second-place finish.

Beau Boarders (No. 7 APEX Race Parts/ CorteX Racing Ford Mustang) completed the GT podium in third (2nd for the Season).

“It’s really a great honor to win the West Coast Championship in the GT class.

The team DIG Motorsports is only in the third year of existence and to win a pro-level championship is really amazing. A lot of thanks goes to Trans Am to make this possible.

It’s a great stepping stone for us as we want to work up to TA2.” – Roger Eagleton


We all look forward to seeing what Roger can achieve next year, but first let’s congratulate him on this fine Championship.

2015 SEMA Mustang GT

A capable track-day car, while being much more comfortable than any S197 Mustang we have built to that level with similar parts.

CorteX Racing already made a name for itself with a cutting-edge SLA suspension package for the S197 Mustang.

Ford had set out to build a two-door sports car that would mop the floor with anything from America, Asia, or Europe on a road course, but its 2015 Mustang has a higher standard to live up to.

We have a tough reputation to uphold since our suspension package for the 2005-2014 S197 Mustang was refined and handles amazingly well. In fact it is good enough to run with Europe’s finest supercars.”

“People might be shocked to hear me say that it could take a while for an upgraded 2015 S550 to equal the performance of our 2014 Mustangs with the Xtreme Grip suspension systems installed.” 


“After upgrading our 2015 Mustang GT with the new [CorteX] coil-over package, adjustable sway bars, bump-steer kit, and massive brakes it becomes a capable track-day car, while being much more comfortable than any S197 Mustang we have built to that level with similar parts.

That said, CorteX still set out to improve upon the all-new suspension under the S550 chassis. With the refinements already provided by Ford, the platform proved a perfect basis for a performance-oriented vehicle for The SEMA Show.

“We are a suspension company and cater to both the street enthusiast as well as the professional road racer. While most other builders will likely focus their SEMA builds on decadent, blingy parts and market hype, we wanted to build an S550 that had real-world parts people are going to want for improving the handling of the 2015 Mustang they already have or are about taking delivery of,” Filip said.

“The car you see here was built in about six weeks. The changes have been extremely effective and have dramatically transformed the handling of the car. With that said, our work is not finished. We have only just begun to explore the potential of this new chassis. That is truly a satisfying, yet exciting direction to be headed.”

That’s not to say that they left the rest of the car alone. Quite to the contrary, the CorteX 2015 Mustang sports an aggressive road-racing look highlight be visual upgrades like a next-gen Tiger Racing hood, CorteX/G-Stream carbon front splitter, CDC spoilers, and a set of HRE FF15 Flowform Wheels.

Once this car is done representing the CorteX brand on the trade-show floor, this 2015 GT will hit the road attending various events—from shows to races—where Filip can show off the car’s full capabilities.

“We plan to drive the car a lot and attend as many events as possible. The car might even be used as a daily driver to put a lot of street miles on our parts. CorteX is a relatively new company and we are going to us this car to create brand awareness and to show people how well our products really do work,” he said.

“You will likely find our 2015 Mustang at a road course event or even a drag strip several times a month as we test our products and show people that a Mustang with CorteX Xtreme-Grip is a world-class performer. What 1LE? What Z28?”

2015 Mustang S550 Parts (as of post)

While the Cortex team is out displaying and demonstrating this combination, they will still be working on more new products for this all-new Mustang.

“We will definitely continue refining the S550 platform and bring the products we are already using on this car to market, including coil-over shocks, adjustable sway bars, control arm and subframe bushings, alignment products for toe control and camber adjustment plates, and chassis lightening components,” Filip added.
