Description
 
The late Banjo Matthews had a sign in his race shop: "Banjo's, where money buys speed - How fast do you want to go?"

Edwin Keith "Banjo" Matthews began his racing career as a driver, but figured out pretty quickly that his greatest joy came in helping other drivers win races. In the 1960's and 70's, he served as car owner for several of the biggest names in NASCAR , including Fireball Roberts, A. J. Foyt, Junior Johnson, Donnie Allison, and Cale Yarborough. Matthews' career as a team owner began at the 1957 Southern 500 and ended at the 1974 Southeastern 500. Matthews also served as co-crew chief for Jack Ingram in 1975, with Junior Johnson.

He is best known, however, for having constructed, with the assistance of Holman Moody, many cars in the 1970's and 80's, including 72% of the winning cars in the top NASCAR division from 1974 to 1985. In that winning effort, his "truck arm"
suspension is credited with putting the cars built by him at the head of the pack. This new suspension upgrade kit engineered by Salvino's JR Racing, faithfully replicates Banjo's unique suspension, and is sure to put you at the head of the pack as you authentically detail your race car models.

This Banjo Matthews Truck Arm Suspension Kit is more than just trailing arms and a track bar to replace the leaf springs, this upgrade kit also allows for a change of the lower front suspension arms and includes two new sets of front hubs for medium and high ride height options. The tree includes longer front axles and shims, drum brake faces, and disc brakes if you want to add more details underneath.

This kit fits the Buddy Baker Gray Ghost and the Donnie Allison Oldsmobiles from Salvino JR, but also can be used to authentically upgrade any of the MPC kits or other race car models from the era. It does not include assembly instructions, so we only recommend for experienced modelers.
