im gonna go look at an emod chasis for sale basically for the rear end and a spare rear comes with it. it was built buy a guy who lives near by has a jig and all from what the owner says im only starting out so fir the money if its definitely a dirt mod not asphalt and the suspension is all there it may be a good starter. how do u distinguish between dirt and asphalt chasis? im thinking maybe the amount of travel in suspension but theres probably a correct way to tell. ive never looked at asphalt chasis not interested. no offense to anyone. thanks for any help.

ok now that you said that i know exactly what u mean ive seen this but never put 2&2 together like i said not really interested just definitely dont wanna end up with asphalt chasis. then again if price is right maybe could work or probably cause confusion from what little i know now. ive seen people do so many different things almost seems if u try hard enough u could make it work fairly good

hey everyone, i think if you want to get into mods and have a chance at running toward the front you have alot better chance with a known chassis, dirtworks, harris, etc, not saying it cant be done but if you have little experience , dont start off with something that you cant call up and get some advice on setups,, theres my two cents
