Thought it would be a great time to let some of you guys know about some of the newest applications available in the SPEC series of chassis, there should be something for just about everybody. Not going to do a huge sales pitch here just some highlights , pricing and of course.....pictures

It is hard to compare ground clearance to stock. The ground clearance is really determined by the tire size and where the suspension is sitting in its travel range. The SPEC chassis does sit approximately 1/2" tighter to the body than a factory subframe, which probably answers the question better.

This gold Camaro has 4.25" from the frame rail to the ground at the lowest point. The pinchweld to the ground is 5.75" at that same area.

We have a bone stock 1967 30k mile unrestored/survivor Camaro in the shop that I measured for comparison. At the same location, it has 7" from the sub-frame rail to the ground. The pinchweld to the ground is 9" at that same area.

These measurements confirm that the SPEC is 1/2" tighter to the body than the factory subframe, thus giving you 1/2" more ground clearance at the same right height when measured from the pinchweld to the ground.

Thanks for the response and dimensions. I was trying to compare to DSE weld in subframe connector ground clearance. I am impressed with part. Any specific headers and or exhaust?

ON the performance side of things here is a really great video that was put together from the Super Chevy Muscle Car Challenge sponsored by Falken




At this event it really showed how well a well balanced,street/performance, truly bolt on chassis can perform even when in comparison it may be underpowered and have significantly narrower tires.

Texas Speed and performance did an amazing job as always, this time refreshing a pull out LQ4 engine and installing a cam to coax out around 400hp. While this number makes it a lot of fun to drive as well as keep with the theme of what the average guy could do on a tighter budget , the power proved to be a handicap especially during the 100 yard dash drag race that Super Chevy had as 1 of the 3 points style events.
However as you will see below the Roadster Shop SPEC 68 camaro with its 400hp and 5 speed really held its own against more tire , more power , and even more gears, finishing 4th place in both the road course as well as the slalom events.





Here are a couple more videos showing the time and effort that went into designing and manufacturing this groundbreaking new chassis, as well as a really cool time lapse showing the actual installation on the Roadster Shop SPEC 68 camaro
