I am seriously looking into getting started in an IMCA modified. I have raced street stock for 2 yrs now and am getting sick of the games the track is playing in regards to the rules and payout. I have a camaro now and am very comfortable with the leaf set up. In my class the camaros dominate, so should I get a mod that has a leaf suspension since this seems to work better at this particular track or should I explore other options in the rearend choice. I know absolutely nothing about the 2 link, 4 link, z bar, j bar, or any of that stuff since I have never dealt with it before. I am thinking that I should start with someting I am familiar with to get my feet wet and then when I get more knowledge on the subject maybe explore the other options. Am I making more out of this than there is or am I thinking right? Thanks for the input, any opinions appreciated.

If you want a leaf car, get a PRO chassis or a Racemart.

I would suggest you go with a leaf car, Since you are just getting started in a Modified, these cars are easier to work with and understand. Racemart makes a good leaf car (FR-1), Randy has a few used ones on his web site or you can call him at:

Watch for a 3 link combo mod chassis going out your way in New York. I will have it done within the next 2 weeks. Go to www.customperformance.org or email me at info@customperformance.org

I would look for a good used roller say 2 or 3 years old but in good shape. That way you have pretty up to date car and yet wont cost an arm and a leg. If you go too far back then you usually are behind in technology. Also I would look for a 2-link chassis. You dont see a lot of leaf mods anymore(at least around here)and I think it will be easier to get advice for a 2 link at the local level. Not that a leaf car cant work but if you look at late models I think you would be hard pressed to find very many if any at all that run leafs, which tells me there is more to gain on a link supsension. The 2 link is easy to learn with and once you get an understanding of that you can jump to the other combos whereas if you start on leafs then switch to links there will be more adjustment to make to your learning curve.
Not saying either is right or wrong, just my opinion........

Not sure who the driver is but the person buying the chassis is Mark Chrzanowski from the Camden Ny area. Its a 3 link chassis dirt combo that will occasionaly hit pavement. It will have a long and short rr trailing arm mounts, pullbar mts, lift bar mts, and other mts to run dirt and pavement .
