Contact Harris and they can get you in the right direction.

All that Harris had to say is that they would make me a good deal on a new chassis and would not tell me if I can make this car cometitive on dirt. Any help I can get would be great thank you.

I will check with a friend of mine who is doing this and winning. I know he re did the front end geometry but I do not know what if anything done to the rear.

If Harris said that to you, i would sell it to whomever i could and go to another manufacturer.

I agree with Krom. I bought a used GRT and they were nothing but friendly and helpful.

Is it a combo car or straight asphault car. If it is a combo yes you can. If a straight asphault car I beleive the left and rear % of it will make it tough to dial in. With that said any thing can be made to handle. My buddy started with a home made asphault car his first two years and did very well.

you cant really blaim Harris, they told you the best thing to do is get a new Dirt car, an asphalt car and a dirt car are way different, why would they want one of there cars out there nowing it is going to be at a disadvantage right of the getgo.
I understand money and the price of these things but the performance of your car reflects on them too.
just my thoughts, I maybe wrong!!!

I feel like I have pretty good set up help from harris. The only thing that is dissapointing is that I have been waiting for an up dated catalog and set up sheets for a few months. They do Have a new owner and moved so that may be holding things up. Other than that they have answered any questions I have had.

The problem I have seen with the pavement harris cars is the rollcage is really low and hard to get a 13" window opening in
