American Made Race cars in Willard Mo, has
a chassis that they sell. Very nice rides.
There are a few good chassis/builders in the
S.W. Missouri area.

Are you looking for a dirt Pro-4 or a pavement Pro-4 car? I've got one of each plus a Pro-4 ARCA truck.

Send me an email if interested.

I'll send you photos of an "outlaw" mini late-model with a tube chassis.

If interested, contact my boss, Doug Thompson at Kansas Racing Products, 785-922-6644 http://www.kansasracingproducts.com

A "Modified" is usually defined as a race car with a chassis coming from a street car or truck. Variations include a jig-built chassis with a stock front or rear clip.

A "Pro" chassis is fully fabricated
by an aftermarket builder.


Modifieds...either using a street chassis or a pro-chassis, are visually recognized by their lack of front fenders and a partially or fully fabricated body. A four cylinder modified might use a full size chassis or a scaled down version.

Here is a link to a group on the east coast who race scaled down Pro-4 Modifieds: http://www.snem.org

Hope this helps explain the differences.

several of the late model builders here in GA build them. i'll check for info if you want. we had them at our tracks for short period of time and they didnt take off too well. they look cool and run great but not everyone could afford them. they cancelled there class and let them run with our mods and then after totally dominating us they cancelled them all together. now some of these guys have cars and no where to run. so be careful! if you build one - build one to full size specs so that you can change it over to v-8 later if you have to.

i also remeber seeing an article a couple of months back for GRT or someone who is building complete mini latemodels. only thing is i think they were using the 1600 cc legends car type engine. it would be hard to handle in a # per CC class.
