Racer,
We have 2 at our track...One which really runs strong is an older 4-link(Vince Quineville) and a brand new slr car that has an inexperienced driver and is aback runner(Frank Capera)....You are right there is not very many of them....Last year with our coil over..we couldn't get any help at all out of them.

I crew chief on a 2005, with the left side drop rail. One small turn with a wrench makes a big difference.

R26MOD is that good or bad. How does the driver like the car?

358 Modified at 5 Mile Point in Binghamton, N.Y. Had double features last night, finished 3rd in the first race and a DF in the second do to a big pile up and the right front shock tower was ripped off. But brfore the crash the car would go any where he wanted it to go.

Sounds great that the is so good. What tires do you have to run there. I may make a race at the end of the year.

I have a question for you mod guys. I run an IMCA mod now and am looking to purchase a east cost mode for next year. I have asked a bunch of people and have recieved many different opinons. On the subject on Troyers
I have found a couple good used older Troyer the I think would be good starter cars. My concern is that the older cars just can't hang with the newer cars. I realize there are many factors, driver,motor ect. I have had great luck with a older Haris (imca) chassis and a simple motor but was not sure if that would be the same for east coast mods. Any thoughts would be helpful. One more thought are the chassis as critical depending upon the Hoosier vers. the American racer tires?

I'm not a mod driver, but I do watch a lot of races that my friends race in. I have never driven an NE mod but I here you have to "fight" to get into the turn. You might be able to win at a local track with a used but don't think about winning in the DIRT Series or even the RoC series. You might consider the 358 mod series before you go to Big Blocks. Bickenlls and Teo Pro Cars are probably the most popular among the winnders. Good Luck!

leftturn,
There are some great deals throughout the winters on chassis's that are a few years old..I wouldn't venture any more than 3 years old because of the amount of flex stress that the chassis gets...The big dollar guys get new each year or every other, so there are many out there over the winters..thats what we did..we learned the hard way trying to compete initialy with an older chassis(we weren't even close)
Bicknell and TEO have the best tech assistance.

I would recomend an 02 or newer Teo or Bicknell. Should be able to pick up a complete roller less engine for around $7500.
Where do you plan to run?
