What is the opinion of Smiley" modified. We run on a 3/8 mile track that is usually rough and pretty heavy. I am worried about it being a "Dry Slick" car. Anyone know of them and how they do? How do they hold up (cracking)with a rough track?

Thanks for input.

A friend of mine has had 2 ,They are pretty good on tacky track but the z link suspension doesnt seem to be very consistant or durable,The tech support hasnt been very good ,but I heard Tom Carpenter may be coming back and if he does that WOULD BE GOOD!!!!!!The cars are a little lite in the right side in my opinion!! Wont take much of a right side hit without some frame damage!JUST MY OPINIONS!!

Tom Carpenter is back and that is good. The only cracking I have seen is in the motor mount area with 2 tubes. Now they are changing to 3 tubes which will cure the problem. The cars work good around Dallas. Look for a build up of this car in Circle Track. Sorry but it will be a few months, maybe Jan or Feb issue. SLEEPY

Depends on who welded it together. They've had good and they've had bad.

Ziggy, That is a concern of mine. The chassis I have looks to have welds that are not real deep. Maybe that isok with moly??? We have one down here that has cracked around the motor and is only one season old. I guess it is too late now since I already have the car. I was hoping my off season will be hopeful knowing that the car is successful...
