I'm not sure, it was the best one on market when we did the above mods. John Griggs took it off and handed it to us and said don't use this with my suspension. Lmao. So, it's been chillen in storage. The old subframes we had were Global West, so it could be a Global West unit if they make one...

Can't find one for Global West, its defintely not the MM one, the one I have is WAY beefier than that flimsy pos one MM sells. The MM one doesn't even tie in the firewall, just attaches to it. Lmao.

If you'd like a picture, I should be able to get you one next time I go to storage in a few days.

Just take your checkbook, your car and drop it off with JamesB who is the best chassis guy in Texas.

I would say he is damn good at drag racing but wouldn't road racing chassis work be different. I've never build a road race car before so I don't know but I the suspensions are completely different so wouldn't half your chassis crap be different.

Also wouldn't Wolfe Racecraft be the king of ford drag racing in Texas?

Both are good options, but far from the best. Just saying


And yes road racing is completely different then drag racing. Chassis stiffening they are "similar" but in terms of setup and knowing where to add bars to perform a specific job they are on complete different planets. I have a lot of experience with building and setting up dirt track cars. The principle is similar in terms of roll center, affective body roll, setting up and designing suspension so you have proper Ackerman angle etc. all of this plays a tremendous role when it comes to how a car will act upon approach, setup, carrying and exit of a corner.
When you want to talk about handling or road racing every race is won or lost with every corner.
