I am having a modified built this winter, was wandering what kind of sub frame you all recommend.

everyone has a different opinion on this subject.(of course) I run a small metric. The replacement parts are easy to find and cheap. The stubs are light weight. And also the stubs are easy to find and cheap. The Chevelle stubs are getting harder to find but they have better geometery. Plus the replacement parts can be hard to find and pricey. Jet uses the big metric chassis. I really don't know much about them except that the front end geometery is close to the camaro chassis' geo. which is pretty good geometery for racing! I know there are some people on here that run Ford stubs, I also don't know anything about those. "Kromulous" has one I believe. "Custom Performance" on this forum builds mod chassis' and I think I've seen him talk about the Ford stubs. Might want to check with him considering he is a chassis builder.

If you can find parts get a 64-72 chevelle or 70-72 monte carlo sub. Their hands down the best all the other frames mentioned work good too after proper work just takes more work than chevelle.

Yep we run a Ford, Crown Vic front steer. Nice clips, strong and the geometry is good. Plus you can mix match parts on them easy. Such as using big metric spindles and rotors, to raise the RC. Plus the very plentifull. I may just continue to run them, for along time.

Anyway, if i had to buy new, i would want the chevelle but dont cut off your nose to spite your face. Meaning the Big metrics parts are plentifull and easy to come by and they are tough.
