Raybestos 1971 Chevrolet Camaro Goes On Tour

RaybestosThe Raybestos 1971 Chevrolet Camaro RS “G-Machine” featuring the Element3 brake pads with Enhanced Hybrid Technology (EHT) is going on tour before heading to the Virginia home of grand prize winner Brian Williams.

The Raybestos Camaro RS was awarded to Williams during the Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo (AAPEX) in Las Vegas and will be delivered to him in Lynchburg, Va. Before reaching its final destination, the one-of-a-kind vehicle will travel coast to coast and back again, following a route that starts in Woodstock, Ill., heads to Washington, D.C., onto Vancouver, B.C. and ends back in Virginia.

“There has been so much interest in this custom-built Raybestos vehicle that we planned to make a few stops on the way to Virginia so a lot more Camaro enthusiasts have a chance to check it out,” said Bruce Tartaglione, senior vice president of global sales and marketing for Brake Parts Inc. “The talented Schwartz Performance team made sure this ultimate high performance vehicle packs plenty of power and has an upgraded brake system featuring the best brakes around, Raybestos.”

Jeff Schwartz directed construction of the custom car build project at his Schwartz Performance shop in Woodstock, Ill. The Raybestos Camaro features a 700-plus horsepower Schwartz-modified, GM LS3 V8 engine with SLP supercharger, mated to a Tremec six-speed manual transmission and severe-duty Moser nine-inch rear axle.

Schwartz Performance is well-known for its “G-Machine” chassis that incorporates modern geometry, materials, suspension components and braking technology into bolt-in full-frame designs. The Schwartz team installed a performance disc brake package featuring Raybestos brake components, including innovative Element3 hybrid brake pads that are engineered to ensure optimal performance, improve pad wear and durability, and deliver unsurpassed stopping power and vehicle control, even under the most aggressive braking conditions.
