1968-72 Nova Chassis

Check item box to add to total

Continuing GM’s success with the prior generations of Nova, the 3rd Gen offered economy motoring in a lightweight, basic package. With the ‘grocery getter’ status comes simple factory suspension and chassis design, a far cry from the performance potential of a corner carving, modern hot rod.

Combining the factory uni-body with the front-to-rear strength of a FAST TRACK full chassis is the optimal way to gain the full performance potential from your X-body.  The FAST TRACK Nova chassis allows a lower, more aggressive stance while still offering true drivability and a packaging design that maximizes ground clearance for enjoyment in all road conditions. By using our FAST TRACK Tri-Five chassis, you can transform your classic Nova into a vehicle suited as much to a coast to coast cruise as it is to setting blistering lap times at the autocross track.

To simplify the installation, the chassis is designed to use the factory body mounts, bumper and core support brackets and will be built to your specific motor and transmission combination.

TBD
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.
