Yenko Camaro build, Mid America kit, JDS front and rear tires, Mid America Mockingbird motor, HMS Ceramic Bearings. This car I tried using .065 hollow tubing for the side rails and brass tubing instead of brass box for the hinges/ slides. It works really good, consistently running .680s in the 1/8.

Nice build, Cap. You're always building chassis'. How many you think you've built?

Phil I honestly dont know, it varies so much on how much I build due to race schedules etc. i think in 2021 I was lucky to build 15 chassis.

Three new drag chassis for Dan Laycock. Each one is slightly different.

Chassis 1 is a Mid-America kit, .059 side rails .062 center hinge. Dan had me solder extra .063 brass strips on the nose for extra weight so he doesn’t need as much lead.

Chassis 2 is a Hump Chassis. Dan let me use this chassis to experiment on chassis rails to see what else might work. This one is double .047 per side. I also used Chicagoland body mounts to create a floating rear mount, I'm not sure why i never thought to do this before.

Chassis 3 is a Mid-America, this is my pretty standard build. .059 side rails .062 center hinge.
