I have traded for two different chassis this year to build over the winter. I have a caged camaro leaf car and a bare monte carlo that needs a cage. Which one would you guys keep to race and which one would you sell. both cars will be full rollers before january. I think I would prefer the coil spring four bar set up of the monte carlo, but I dont know which would be the faster car. I need some serious input here. thanks.

The leaf spring car is more forgiving and easier to drive, but one hit in the back hard and it can jam your leaf springs and you have a problem. It is a bugger to get it straightened out so it won't bind up. The coil spring car can take more punishment in the rear with fewer problems and it is easier to change coils. Just my opinion.

If it's a metric Monte, it won't take a hit very well either. Go with the Monte, sell me the Camaro next spring! Just kidding......maybe not!
