Go to you local track and see who wins and try to figure his set-up and you can put it on just about anything. But be care full i would go with and of the brand names. Around my area HOT, RAPTOR, DIRTWORKS. I used to live in Texas and D&M & Dirtworks did very well but not HOT. Go figure?? Different area different chassis. Good luck

Dirtworks and Pro's and GRT's do good around my area also HOT is good. i wouldn't go with an eagle chassis out of Texas. the guy is a crook and will still your money and not give you a car. I should know i ordered a car last year from him and still aint got the thing.

I like a Harris Chassis. We have always run them, and have always won with them. We have 3 right now, 2 older ones, and a 2002. Can't wait for next season!

Dirt works are pretty tried and true around here. I also like the Jet mods.

Pro Chassis' are awesome, two years straight pro chassis (different cars, different drivers) won track championship here and Darren Williams was in a pro car when he won the nationals.
Harris and dirtworks are the seasoned veterans and are always good cars.
I love the new Jet Mods they always seem to be fast.

i don't know which one is better, but i know this I GOT A PRO.

I hope a Champion chassis is real good. I have one, but haven't raced it yet.

I think that a Dirtworks is pretty fast in any area. I also know that its how your configuring your set up under the car. Not the brand name. I've seen guys with homemades outrun everybody simply because they new their car and how it works. But dirtworks has been there almost anywhere and have great tech, so you can't go wrong with a DW. Good luck with what ever you decide.

I agre with Delane. We've got at least three guys with homebuilt chassis that are fast on any given night.

here's how our top to lined out chassis manufacture's:

1: Homemade
2: Hoffman
3: belleville
4: homemade
5: homemade
6: homemade
7: dirtworks
8: dirtworks
9: dirtworks
10: homemade

first and tenth where built by the same guy and 5th and 6th where built by the same. #4 builds his own along with his brother who finished 14th last year in IMCA national points. There are so many educated people out there that can build and understand racecars, not one particular brand chassis is better than another, it's all in how it is setup.

But i'll stick with my dirtworks

I forgot to post my choice.

I have to go with a Champion Chassis out of Cedar Rapids Iowa. They win at all the tracks they go to. And the builder is always at a track with one figuring them out.

Awsome Car!!!

The chassis are just dumb steel. Its all in the set up. Get the car square and go. My vote is for home built junk (HBJ). I've seen some real junk kick some a**. I've seen some guys with real money kick some a** to. Again my favorite is the guy with the least.
