[VIDEO]Camaro race car wins on Pfadt suspension and sets track record!



For those of you who saw the promo video, here is the full video featuring some brief interview about the goals and results.

This car, built by Carriage House Customs and using all Pfadt suspension, won all three races it entered in the American Iron Series in NASA, and even set a track record in the process at Brainerd International Raceway in Minnesota.

The Pfadt Camaro components featured on this car are the same ones you can buy for the street. If you want your car to produce results on the track, and still have a comfortable street ride, Pfadt has the solution for you. We race so you can be winners with your own Camaro. When put up against the competition, Pfadt has what it takes to win. Those who were at the Camaro5 fest saw our suspension featured on both class winning vehicles as well.

A congratulations is in order for all those involved!

How much of an effect on the racing ability of that car do you think gutting the interior had?

Awesome job, by the way.

I dont know what the specific weight numbers on the interior are, but removing weight seems to have about a second(per lap on a 2-3 mile track) per 100 lbs of sprung weight. That is a very non-scientific observation based on experience only.
