How does everyone here like the throw'n dirt chassis? Also how is the support? Not sure if I want to go with a Throw'n Dirt chassis or a GRS.

Up where I am from, (Western Pennsylvania), the Throw n' Dirt cars seem to win more races only because not that many people have GRS chassis'. Personally, I like the Throw n' Dirt cars better than GRS, but I like Harris' even better still.

Both Throw'n Dirt and GRS chassis are based on the Rocket Late Model 4-bar rear suspension. The GRS cars actually take the rocket rear clip and weld on a stock front end. They are both great cars as long as you have a firm handle on 4-bar tech. I would personally go with a Throw'n Dirt. Kevin and Kenny Rodgers are good people and they'll help you out when ever you need it. Dave Groves from GRS is also a great guy but he builds chassis for a hobby. If you order a GRS today, good luck getting it before the 2004 season!!

Just my opinion

We have had a GRS for the past 2 years and have ordered a new one for next year. Dave runs his house car and is leading the RWT points and runs well just about everywere. If anyone plans on going to WVMS for the AMRA Nats. and Pensboro for the $12,000 to win show, look for Dave up front in his GRS house car because he won the AMRA Nats last year. As for us and our GRS, we can run in the top just about anywhere we go also and we have do ALOT of traveling and raced at alot of track we have never raced at before until this year. Throw N' Dirt car are a great car also and have won MANY feature events. Kenny and Dave are both exellent racers and know what they are doing with the 4 bar deal. Dave likes to run the spring behind and floated on LR and the Kenny and Keven from Throw N' Dirt like to clamp up the LR with the spring infront. I have heard from Keven that his car next year will have every susp. on it, just to experiment with diffrent things. Both the cars seem to work well on the heave and the slick. Bottom line is both chassis are well build and the craftmanship is top notch. I feel that GRS and Throw N' Dirt cars are a top notch mod and if you have one of their cars you will be running in the front! Thanks Kugel
