If you can't beat them then join them or at least keep the best of both worlds. What are your thoughts?

Back to the future Gr7 might as well.

I'm in 23 single or double 25, 72 magnet Koford/Camen monster motor. What modification would have to be made to chassis so it wouldn't rattle itself into pieces?

Solder in the motor. :) 

 

I once drove a friend's Thorp 23 on a Sovereign (Purple Mile) with glue. That car was the most brutal slot car I've ever driven.

I'm not really familiar with those chassis's but I'd try to get them as low as possible to lower the CG and then gear the motor for max RPM's.Also if it's not a original chassis I'd try to lighten it as much as possible to help lower the strain on the motor.

 

Lightened up with a low CG and you should have a fun car.But I'd also look into running a milder wind in a modern setup because you're going to need the throttle response more than brute force.
