Strength and Style
Weld Racing introduces the RT-S line of forged aluminum wheels. The two designs: S71, a traditional “Weld-Star” design, and the S74, a sophisticated multi-spoke design, make up the initial RT-S style offering. Wheel sizes range from 15 x 3.5 in to 20 x 17.5 inches. Forged from primary aluminum alloys in the USA, the wheels polish to a brilliant shine and resist oxidation better than other alloys. Capable of handling 1200 hp, 1.2-second 60-ft times, 1,580lb loads, and very high speeds, these wheels are the answer to today’s powerful and sophisticated hot rods and street machines.

First-Gen Sport Chassis
The easiest and most efficient way to give a first-gen Camaro sports car-like handling is to install this new three-piece GT-Sport chassis package from Art Morrison Enterprises. Given that Camaros were manufactured at multiple factories, and there is just enough difference between them to prevent employing a common frame, AME’s engineering team solved the problem by designing a modular chassis that allows the builder to position and weld the subframe connectors to best fit the floor pan of each individual vehicle. The front subframe is bolt-in. Awesome handling is ensured through use of a C6 ‘Vette front suspension with forged aluminum control arms and choice of a triangulated 4-bar or 3-link rear suspension with Watts linkage. Strange Engineering adjustable coil-overs are used at the corners, with anti-sway bars also employed front and rear. With mini-tubs, there’s room to run 335 rear tires.
