Default Ridetech StreetGrip release at SEMA!

Hey Everyone!

At SEMA, we're showing everyone what we've been putting together for the last couple of years. This is the "one box, one stop" setup for the guys that want a bolt on setup that will transform their hotrod into a more enjoyable machine. Compared to our other products available, these packages are focused on the guys that have their eyes set on a STREET oriented car.

The kit includes:

- Composite Rear Leaf Springs
- Dual-Rate Coil Springs
- Delrin Control Arm Bushings (for factory arms)
- Taller Ball Joints
- Larger Front Sway Bar
- Delrin Swaybar Bushings
- Single Adjustable Ridetech Monotube Shocks

Our criteria for StreetGrip (in order of importance):

- Ride Quality: Who doesn't want this? Everyone wants a streetrod/hotrod that they can get in and drive anytime they like, while still being comfortable.
- Handling: We're optimizing the handling characteristics for everyone, even the guys using who aren't using competition tires!
- Easy Install: These are the kits that won't require any cutting, welding, fab work, no nothing... Just a direct replacement for OEM suspension parts.
- Everything comes in one box: This is all that is needed, no other purchases required.
- Pricing: Everything you need for $2000-2500.

Right now, we have 5 applications done and will be shipping on January 5th (or sooner). There is a tremendous change that comes from the kits. After driving these cars in stock form and with the StreetGrip installed, I'm amazed. Remember the feeling that you had when you drove your car, for the first time? If you've lost that feeling, be prepared to feel that again!

Hey guys! Here are some videos that show off the composite leaf springs in action:

Composite leaf w/ rubber bushings:

Composite leaf w/ delrin bushings:

If you watch both videos, you'll see that the delrin bushings offer quite a bit less lateral movement than the rubber bushing allows.

Over the last few weeks, we've been playing with the StreetGrip some more on a few different cars! While working on this Camaro, we've added an extra 1" drop to the 67-68 rear kits due to the rounded fender lips. With the 69's squared wheel arch, getting the lower look wasn't as difficult.

Here are some pictures of the RS we've been playing with. I'll post up some pictures of underside in a little bit to show what we've added!
