What chassis is everyone using in the black hills

Postby fireonice2828 » Wed Dec 03, 2014 12:41 pm

New to micro sprints. New or used as long as it's a competitive chassis it doesn't matter to me. Also are coils the way to go or a combination or bars/coils?

How big of a track, what banking, and wing or non wing?

There isn't one specific chassis a majority of the drivers run. I seen a mid 2000's factor 1 for sale down in Nebraska the other day. We run a factor 1 switched from short bars to coils in the front.

You have to consider Sawyer Chassis. I'm not sure how many run Sawyer at that track but following the crowd means that you are equal. I never want to be equal!!!

The questions I asked are relevant because certain chassis are better on different tracks. Sawyer and factor one wee built for slight to medium banked small tracks. Both are good cars in wing and non wing. Hypers were built suited for bigger tracks, though they do well on the small tracks too. They were built as wing cars, but can be fast non wing. Concepts are excellent cars for smaller flater tracks in non wing, but there's a guy in NY that got 14 or so wins this year running a wing concept car in the heart of hyper country. PMP has switched to wishbone cars if I understand right, and they are the cheapest chassis on the market, but are good cars. There's no wax on wax off with these things. They are all good.you can't rule out any of the major brands. Look at cost, versus location. If you have a local builder, repairs are quicker and easier. But as far as all out cost savings, hyper seems to be cheapest overall cost, the parts are cheap compared to the others, and they get things shipped out asap. The only reason to buy what all the people around you have, is if you plan on using used parts. If you want new parts, shop around on all the brands. Get a feel for cost to fix/replace broken parts. I hope this helps.
