Racing is a critical component in RideTech’s product development strategy. While you may never race your RideTech-equipped car or purchase our racing-oriented Track 1 components, RideTech’s racing efforts are likely to benefit your project. RideTech absolutely, positively torture tests parts on a weekly basis. It’s fun. We tweak geometry and shock calibrations based on lessons learned. Most of all we get to see how our products stack up against parts on offer by our top competitors. With three wins out of five competitions entered to date in 2017, we’re darn sure that RideTech suspension products are among the best in the business.
Racing matters, but what about the cars, themselves? Are they more street car or race car? RideTech team cars maintain stock frames, stock floors and stock firewalls. While we have the resources to build anything from a mild restomod to a rocket ship, we’re making a statement by working with the stock platform. RideTech is here to help you make the most of your car regardless of its degree of modification. We are here to tell you that your stock frame — including the recirculating ball steering box — when upgraded with Track 1 components is highly competitive.
As the new Track 1 Camaro is a true street car, it will have Vintage Air AC, a stereo, heat and sound insulation, carpeting, wipers, mirrors, full exhaust and DOT legal lighting. Everything else is hardcore high performance speed equipment. Our partners are providing the best products in their catalogs such as Holley Terminator EFI, Currie Enterprises full floater rear , Forgeline wheels and a custom-built LS7 engine from SDPC Raceshop. A growing list of partners is presented below.
The Track 1 Camaro has one more weapon in its arsenal: RideTech Instinct Electronic Shock Absorbers. To quote driver and RideTech Motorsports Team Manager, Chris Smith: “Instinct Shocks are like racing on velcro and riding on velvet” With an AB mode switch the shocks can be toggled between a soft street calibration and an aggressive race mode. Together with our Track 1 Suspension, RideTech has a winning combination for 2018. Stay tuned for the next chapter in the Track 1 Camaro build series.
