Quality these days has so many different meanings. Race car builders offer goods,but it just isn't the product they are selling you,you need service after the buy is done.

In our area here,a couple of local track champion racers got together and started building chassis for mods and late models. Their finished product was competitive,but the teams who bought the chassis made them competitive with hard work as the builders could offer no input or feedback to help those teams. Teams that couldn't make their chassis from the newly formed builders work are left with a empty wallet and feelings because the builders were not to fine tune the chassis.

Look at finished products,workmanship is the key. All these fancy chassis that are laid back,off set,and state of art do not mean a thing if the quality of workmanship is not there. Look at welds,the way tubes are bent,the notches,the copes and so on.

Look at as much as you can between as many different builders as you can. You will see the good,the bad,and the ugly.

After you spend top dollar for chassis,it is a large part of you as the racer to keep the chassis up to race shape.Once you start cutting this,moving this,changing that,you have changed the chassis as a whole. Most chassis builders have had many years in understanding chassis and how to move weight transfer,so keep that in mind. Many builders are like artists....hate people messing with their fine art.

Thanks teamstertom! Nice to get feedback lick that. If anyone needs pics for ideas, let me know, I'll e-mail 'em to ya. Mostly Camaro, tho, with a couple of mod rebuilds. I don't really build 'em for the masses. Don't have the time or money. Building your own chassis is time-consuming and expensive from the ground up, but so rewarding. It is like an art form. Try to stay with a local builder if possible. It makes it easier to get the chassis back to them for upgrades and repairs. Good luck
