makes the chassis more rigid so your suspention is what moves instead of the entire chassis

this is on full frame cars you basilcy put bars in an x in the middle of the frame and one in the tail section you can connect your stub with the rear section on your nova for the same basic effect not sure if guys x that too or not we never even hooked our stub on our novas

On a NOVA X the chassis like this. Run a tube from the right front sub frame as far forward as possable and as close to the A-frame mount and tie it to the back at the leaf spring mount. Then peice the other side into the chassis to cross the tubes. If you can try to offset the cross to the side (either will Work) so you can tie the cross to the main cage. You just cut a small hole into the floorpan and run a tube up to the cross tube in the cage then to the roof. This will help in a roll over also. In NASCAR it is called a PETTY bar as he was the first driver to use it.

Check your rules first... I have seen them that do not alloy hobby stocks or street stocks X the frame.

One of the tracks I run doesn't allow X-ing the frame. It really makes no sense as a rule, simply because it's not expensive to do and it makes the car much safer in a rollover, or if a u-joint or driveshaft breaks.
