Eddie comes down here in AZ and spanks on us for the big national shows. Last year he rolled his car at the manzy national and worked on it all week for the desert classic and Canyon and won it. It think they are great cars.

No website that I know of.His cars are built on a small metric stub(The cars that I have seen)

There is a guy that races at the track I sometimes race at and ran really strong in his car,Im pretty sure he told me it was a Eddie Martin car.

If anybody else has anymore info please share.not getting a new car this year,but would like to get a new chassis for 07,and already starting to look around

eddie is out of stillwell, ok but i don't have a number for him. steve builds the tre cars with the same setup. i can state for a fact that the tre cars are a very safe car and run real well. steve and eddie still talk alot and exchange ideas.

TRE and Big Chief Cars aren't the same cars. It's just that you can get both with the reverse z link setup that eddie and steve both like so well. They both build their cars on different front stubs, and are quite different throughout.

TRE's are chevelle stubs and I believe Big Chiefs are metric stubbed still. Both Steve and Eddie are very sharp guys and build very fast cars.

Can't go wrong either way in my opinion
