I would use any of the three you mentioned first if you can before using the ford vic stub or the newer caprice fullsize gm stub. They work good but are a little heavier than the others mentioned.

There's a guy that runs out our way with a 10 yr old car (no lie) with a ford stub that wins just about every week. The car isn't light, but he's always hooked up better than anyone else!

The Crown Vic stub is the best choice, they are very easy availible and easy to work with.........properly trimmed, they are NO heavier than any other stub, and in fact lighter than most. there is no sturdier stub out there either. Some of the fastest cars built around here are M@M cars out of Coal Valley Ill. they all use the Vic stub. I understand that Corey Dripps' new chassis that is due to debut at Boone at the Nats' is built on the Vic stub.......should be fast. I am just a builder of my own cars and a few friends, (no professional) and I have used the Vic stub for years and had good results.

I never said the Vic stubs or full sized caprice werent good stubs or didnt work just not my first choice. All in all any stub can be used and made to work with proper preparation.
