I was wondering if anyone knows who made the 1/32 frame pictured here? I raced it against the Womps and Thumper cars and remember it working better than those. I am just starting to get back into the slot car hobby after 15(+) years and I am having trouble remembering what's what in the old toolbox. It can't be that I am getting older! :) 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Riggen as in "REH" (Cincinnati) , for their racing sets using the old Revell track molds.

Freddie, Smith Scale Speedway in Charlestown, NH sells these bare Riggen chassis. They do mailorder too. :)

Axles centerline is for larger OD tires  than the Womp/Thumper/Sprints+ frames. Always worked for cutting up for big wheel hardbody classes.
