Yes the kit is a pain to build but the rear suspension is pretty much the same as a Harris 3 link. the kit is made to fit different stubs though. What stub does it have if it is the old chevelle frame it might be a good learner car.

We are running a speedway chassis this year and are having pretty decent luck with it,I think we are fith in points out of about thity cars. It handles fine the only thing that hurts it is the rear percentage is only about 54%.We added lead to get it up to about 56%. We changed the rear springs this week,went stiffer so we'll see what that does for it.

That car is, in fact, one of Danny Wallace's old cars. That car would be a decent car to get started in as long as it is still straight. I'm not sure, but it may even have a stub in it that was prepped by the folks at Harris. I had the car that DW won the region with in the mid '90s, and it was that way. Danny also told me that they put a Harris stub in the Nat'l CHampion Speedway car when they built it also. It sounds like a good trade to me.

so if thats a harris stub under it that would be the old chevelle right? i didn't think it was to bad a deal either but i still need to come up with some cash somehow.

All of the speedway cars danny built were built with Harris stubs except his most 2 recent ones he used metric stubs.
