Schwartz Performance Chassis – Winning on Track and Off
When it comes to handling and performance, a Schwartz Performance chassis can be the difference between winning and losing. For their customers, its mostly about winning!
Recently, the Schwartz-built Raybestos 1953 Chevy pickup carved up the course and took home the truck class win at the Goodguys West Coast Nationals in Pleasanton. Think about that for a minute. A ’53 Chevy truck that was originally built 65 years to haul wood and hay on the farm won a car race, and thanks to its Schwartz Performance chassis, it won easily.
The ’53 Chevy is the latest give-away vehicle for Raybestos Brakes. Perched atop a Schwartz G-Machine Chassis, it features Schawrtz’s standard equipment including a triangulated 4-link supporting a full-floating Moser rear end. Up front Schwartz incorporates their own beefy spindles held between custom A-arms while a set of extra-long RideTech coilovers soak up road and track noise providing consistent support on the street or track. A power rack and pinion is also part of their standard offering as well as a set of splined sway bars and billet arms at the front and rear.
In Pleasanton, Jeff Schwartz wheeled the vintage farm truck to a solid win in the truck class with lap times being competitive with many of the purpose built cars in faster classes. That performance was largely due to the G-Machine Chassis, BFG Rival-S tires and Forgeline wheels, the consistent 4-piston Raybestos calipers and of course the power of the Chevy LT1 engine and T56 Magnum Trans.
Schwartz Performance designs their G-Machine Chassis with the goal of updating classic cars with a comfortable ride coupled with performance handling. Proven performance, winner’s circles and a sporty ride on your daily rounds are more fun than ever with a Schwartz Performance chassis.
