1953-62 Corvette Chassis

Check item box to add to total

Form and function combined. The FAST TRACK C1 Corvette chassis is the ultimate in aftermarket performance for 1953-62 Corvettes.

The Corvette Fast-Track chassis starts as fully hand fabricated 10ga. boxed frame rails giving you the strongest platform to base your project upon, eliminating the concern of fiberglass body damage due to chassis flex. To simplify installation the chassis is designed to use the factory body mount locations, bumper and core support mounts. The C-1 Chassis has been designed with a center crossmember with an adjustable drop-out transmission mount and a Tig welded mid-crossmember with styled exhaust ports for up to a 3″ exhaust.

Bringing handling and ride quality to the forefront, the Fast-Track front suspension uses proprietary geometry utilizing the proven Corvette ZO6 spindle. Increased camber gain and a lower, controlled roll center allow for significantly improved handling and drivability. We also incorporate a 1.25″ splined sway bar as standard equipment for increased roll resistance during excessively hard cornering. The FAST TRACK IFS employs the use of large diameter 1 5/8″ lower control arms and 1 ¼” upper control arms for strength and they have been specifically designed to accept a wider wheel and tire combination without losing turning radius. Our control arms also use a machined and serviceable Delrin bushing for less deflection and a long service life.

Frame Rails
Industry Standard
Bent Square Tubing
Vehicle-specific CNC cut pattern with 10 gage boxed rails
Why the difference?

Our CNC cut patterns ensure consistent strength, fitment and flowing, high quality, paint ready shapes. Bent tubing produces weak spots with unsightly wrinkles where the frame is prone to bending.

Crossmembers
Industry Standard
MIG welded, mandrel bent basic construction
TIG welded, dedicated pattern with vehicle specific design
Why the difference?

Our fully adjustable crossmembers combine strong design elements with a combination of materials and patterns tailored to each vehicle. We also include exhaust and brake line ports, fuel line clearances and exhaust mounts.

Spindle
Industry Standard
Mustang II
C6 Corvette
Why the difference?

Modern day components from the C6 corvette far exceed the quality and performance of the 1970’s economy car components. Z06 hub with sealed bearings vs the non-sealed industry standard.

Sway Bars
Industry Standard
Bent Tubing
Splined sprung steel
Why the difference?

Our fully adjustable crossmembers combine strong design elements with a combination of materials and patterns tailored to each vehicle. We also include exhaust and brake line ports, fuel line clearances and exhaust mounts.

Control Arms
Industry Standard
78" upper, 1 18 lower
1 14" upper, 1 58 lower
Why the difference?

Larger diameter control arms designed to handle the weight of heavier cars and stresses of performance driving. Smaller diameters are prone to flexing and bending. TIG welded, braced and gusseted for higher strength.

Control Arm Mounts
Industry Standard
Through Bolts
Reverse mounted, 4041 pre-hardened shafts
Why the difference?

Our control arm mounts allow simple caster/camber adjustability without removing the entire control arm and through bolt, which is often difficult in a completed car. This allows quick adjustment for all driving requirements.

Brackets
Industry Standard
MIG welded, single shear
TIG welded, boxed double shear
Why the difference?

TIG welding boxed, double shear brackets provides greater weld penetration, heat control, strength and a more visually appealing finished product. Unboxed, single shear mounts are often prone to bending and flexing.

Hardware
Industry Standard
Grade 5
Grade 8
Why the difference?

Grade 8 is the strongest available hardware and should be used on all suspension components due to the stresses endured from any driving, let alone performance driving.

Bump Stops
Industry Standard
None
Positive and Negative
Why the difference?

Bump stops provide protection for your suspension components and chassis. We provide both positive and negative stops to allow protection through maximum suspension range.

Bushing Material
Industry Standard
Polyurethane
Delrin
Why the difference?

Polyurethane distorts with little pressure. Delrin holds it’s shape with over 2000lbs of pressure with zero deflection allowing full range of suspension motion.

Bushing Lubrication
Industry Standard
None
Grease fitting in every bushing
Why the difference?

Bronze, oil lite sleeve in every bushing. Designed to keep bushing lubricated and allow for full, fluid motion. Spiral grease groove designed to disperse grease across the entire bushing.
