Excellent report, Keith.  

 

Are your chassis all similar to the Corvair one shown in the photos?

Mike, check out the website link below for the different types of hardbody chassis designs we use for our various racing classes. There's no one design that's best but take a look at the "how to" examples shown and you'll get a better idea of what type of chassis works for our hardbody flat track races at Buena Park Raceway. The Corvair chassis is basically a copy of Gonzo's Mazda RX-7 chassis as shown at the website link shown below.
