It seems like almost half the field at I-44 Speedway in Lebanon, Mo is running an Allen chassis. I think Terry Beckham Jr. is running an Allen, and he is always fast...although I think he'd be fast in anything he drove.

Some run 4-z, some are on swing-arm and 3link and they seem to be good cars. There are several in East Texas.

The worst thing about a Allen car is Scotty. Good luck getting the car on time, not to mention help with the setup.

I have ordered an allen chasis a was very impressed when he took the time to show me one of his cars and his shop. He seems to be very helpful with any questions you ask. I raced against his cars at LA raceway and at Dallas county speedway and those cars are fast.

SPDE- sounds like real "constructive" criticism coming from a pierce dealer! Momma said etc,etc,!!!

I can give you names of other satisied customers if you want. aka Urbana's superstock champion last year. Another superstock guy that went mod this year. Or a guy that was dropped by scotty after he went back to DW the 1st time!!! Is the car good? Ask someone else, I'm just telling you what I know. PS this doesn't have anything to do with Pierce, I didn't plug them. I think it said pros&cons! I think Scotty's workmanship is great. It's some of the best I have seen. Still means I wouldn't buy a car from him. ltr
