Just thought I would let you all know I bought a new chassis from Rich of Custom Performance earlier this year. It made its debut the 4th and 5th of July and the car was just a rocket right off the trailer. I pulled a 3rd in the feature Thurs and a 2nd in the feature Fri. If your lookin to get a new chassis give rich a call! He builds a top notch car and you wont be sorry. I have nothing but good things to say about his cars!!!!

Thats good hear glad you are doing well. I have allways thought if someone would get out and run one of Rich's car they would do good. Hope this is signs of bigger and better things to come. CHAMP

Tom, You waited until everyone was out of money and couldn't afford new tires, to top that eveyone else's motors are tired and wore out at mid-season......shame on you for taking advantage of those guys that way...LOL

I'm sure Rich's cars are well built..... that's to say they are BOTH....SAFE AND FAST. not all cars are built with both ideas, we all know some of the new cars are thin wall tube, missing some tubes....ect.

Jeff you are correct in everything you just said. Most cars i have built regardless of the stub used weigh around 2300 lbs running either a chevy or ford. I dont beleive in building a throw away type light weight car because i have seen some of those after the big crash and the cars didnt look pretty and were junk and some of the drivers were hurt.I build a car thats safe and strong and will last.

Customperformance,

On the mods you have built on different stubs, what is the order of lightest to heaviest. Do you know the actual weight differences, i.e. 5, 10, 20 lbs, etc., or more just a general knowledge that one is heavier than the other?

I built a mod on a gm metric frame 4 years ago, and I am thinking of building a new one this winter. I was thinking of using either the full size gm or a ford, and be able to use the ford lowers.

Thank you.

mikeaz depends on what all yuou want. bare frame + paint plus body interior or complete roller(how complete roller at what stage) all have a factor when i could get it done. also when i get your deposit and when i get ayments for the car as it is being done. bare frame + paint and interior about a months time to give you an idea.

It may be due to rust but i have had some 64-72 chevelle frames a bit lighter than the late gm small metric frame. The weight on the small metric is not consistant some are heavier than others. i have not tryed the big gm metric yet.
