There are Custom Performance Black Diamond Chassis in Iowa, Arkansas, Texas,Wyoming, and one on it's way to Colorado as of last nite. I use 68-72 chevelle stubs when available or small metric gm frames. Last 3 cars have been metric frames.

There is a good article on Kelly and the chassis in the current Speedway Illustrated. It said they are only building about 30 a year I think.

OK, I am confused, are we all talking about the same Chassis here? Are they Black Diamond or Sky Rocket? Or are they the same? McDaniels was running a DW last couple years and last I heard was back in a Harris. He is the Harris man!!! I heard he was driving a different car in the Winter Heat series in Arizona but I though his main car was a Harris????

2 different chassis i used to work with Kelly Schryock @ Harris 6 years ago. I beleive a bare Skyrocket chassis is close to $3,000 bare and the Imca legal door plate and floor pans are extra. I build the Black Diamond chassis.

The sHyrocket chassis is a nice piece. My buddy has one and if he could get to the track in time to not have to start at the back he would be a lot more successful. He still has 3 top threes in a row at I-30 In Little Rock. As far as price goes he told me he was afraid to tell me what he paid for it.

If I'm not mistaken, the article in Speedway said a full roller runs about $16000.

The guy that has his left front coming off the ground is running the 4 bar on left side and z link on right side.I think Randy has his car set up that way also.When these guy get these cars to turn in the middle there going to be one of the fastest car any where they go like ww1w said they come out of the corner like they were shot from a cannon
