A champion with a metric front end? I have not seen one. Mine is a 95 car with 97 updates, we run these ride hights lf 51/2,rf 6, lr 6, rr 61/4. I started with 100# lr and ajusted from there. My car is a ford front, wishbone/liftbar rear.

At one time there were Champion mods made by a different company in Oklahoma and Eddie Martin used to drive for them. Good fast looking cars but sometime in the late 90"s i think they were sold and Dirtworks bought some of the equipment.

Mike Frieden in Cedar Rapids Iowa, builds the Champion Chassis, he to my knowledge, has always used the Ford Torino stub, if yours is a metric, it has been changed,
BTW those cars are the best quality fabrication work that you can ever find, they are very fast and the utmost quality, in fact there are many of his cars still running around here and winning some date back to the early 90's.....as a matter of fact, a 97 model won the feature here Saturday nite, with a Ford engine too..LOL
pm me if you need more info ford5

Nobody seems to get it. At one time there was a builder in oklahoma that called their modifieds Champion while Mike Freidin called his Champion in Iowa at the same time. The company in OK is no longer in business and their equipment was bought by Dirtworks.

Mike Frieden used to work for BeckerMotorSports, the cars he built there were called Champion Chassis, then he split from Beckers a few yrs ago, then went on his own, building the same chassis design, at another location, he retained the Champion Chassis name, while Beckermotorsports had to change their name to Champ Cars. confusing? yes! but that is how it remains, also Corey Dripps works for Mike Frieden. Johnny Spaw is building the Champ Cars currently at Beckers
