last year I was hit very hard in the left front wheel bent everything and broke several pieces question is if I reuse this chassis should I cut the stub off and replace with a new one or cut the frame support out under the motor and put in a new one I know what I want to do but I don't know if the frame will too bent to just cut out the support

what kind of car is it on uni body cars we have always just put another one under it on full frames we take it to a good body shop or race shop that has a frame machine and just pull it and then replace the hoop bars. depending on how bad it is we will put a car on there up to 3 times befroe we scrap it
