Based on C6 Corvette spindles and Z06 hub assemblies, Roadster Shop has optimized the suspension geometry for applications like our Chevy. Handling has been enhanced by increasing camber gain during hard cornering and lowering the roll center. Bumpsteer through the full range of suspension travel is practically immeasurable and to control body roll there is a 1.25-inch-diameter splined antiroll bar with Corvette endlinks to keep the chassis flat when negotiating corners.
Standard on all Fast Track suspension systems and complete chassis are non-adjustable, RS by Penske shocks that are custom valved for the best possible ride quality and handling characteristics. Upgrades available include double-adjustable shocks as well as double- and triple-adjustable remote reservoir shocks for those who are looking for the utmost in tunability and performance.
Basically the RS Fast Track IFS is everything the original wasn't. It provides the handling characteristics we wanted with an improved ride and a much lower stance while still providing full suspension travel. The RS Fast Track IFS is available with a universal crossmember designed for frames with 29 inches between the 'rails and comes with track widths of 54.75 or 58.75 inches. It's also available on the 1958-64 Chevy replacement frames, as shown here.
