The Roadster Shop Reveals New Performance C2 Fast Track Chassis
If you’re against just parking in a lawn chair for a day at a show and prefer to use and abuse your Corvette to the fullest, you know the importance of having a proper chassis and suspension system for handling and ride comfort. Unfortunately, some of the older models didn’t exactly come with the optimal setup from the factory. However, thanks to the Roadster Shop, early Corvette owners don’t have to let that stop them from having a Vette that can perform with the best. The famed hot rod and muscle car chassis fabrication company has worked hard to give Corvette and similar vehicle owners a performance chassis and suspension system that stand out against the competition and has recently added another system to their growing line of Fast Track offerings. This time, it’s C2 Corvette owners that can rejoice as the new 1963-1967 Fast Track Chassis with Fast Track suspension is sure to take your classic Sting Ray to a whole new performance level.
The Roadster Shop’s Fast Track chassis goes far beyond the industry standard for performance suspensions. Instead of components like Mustang II spindles, polyurethane bushings, MIG welds and bent tubing sway bars and frame rails, the RS Fast Track suspension offers Corvette C6 spindles, Delrin bushings, TIG welded components, splined sprung steel sway bars and vehicle-specific CNC cut pattern frame rails with 10 gauge boxed rails.
With the new C2 Fast Track system, you’ll also get a 1.25-inch splined front sway bar with C6 end links, custom center crossmember with adjustable drop out trans mount, adjustable Afco billet coilovers, a mid brace crossmember with exhaust ports to accommodate up to a 3-inch exhaust, SBC or BBC engine mounts, an HD Ford 9-inch housing with 31-spline axles and a large diameter triangulated 4-bar rear suspension. You can also upgrade the chassis with LS engine mounts, double adjustable coilovers, Wilwood brakes, a Swivel Link Parallel 4-bar rear suspension, rearend gearing and independent rear suspension options. The C2 Fast Track suspension system starts at $16,495 with additional charges for upgraded components.For a look at the new C2 system or all of the Roadster Shop’s Corvette offerings, be sure to visit their website.
