1Gary One of the roller cars we bought and sold was a E/A.We ran it s a 9.90 car.It was a shortly,I think it was a 96" car.The only 9.90 car in a whole bunch that was very close to a serious crash in a oil down that happened in front of us.Slid in the oil and got upon two wheels,but came back down.At 96" it was a handful on the top end until the following yr where we stretched it to 125". It would hook on ice.A 1.27 to 1.25 60'er.Had guys wondering how we got it from 1800lbs to 2350lbs.LOL.They kept scaling it.LOL.But a consistent winner that ran the number.

Ya know you think back to the old time Alters Like"Pure Hell" and "Pure Heaven",those did have a very high crank center line."Wild Willy" winged express was also a very high crank center line too.

Couple more questions.Is this a front straight axle car??. What does is it's wt??. R & P steering??. It is cert'ed??. A moly frame??. Good shocks??. Tight 4 link ends or are those going to need to be replaced??. Four wheel brakes??. Who's brakes?? Got a chute and is that in date??. Any electronics come with it??.

This is in part a check list we use when buying rollers.

need advice and/or opinion.

I found a altered body drag racing chassis that im thinking about buying, however there are a few things that maybe some of you have run in to.

1) the chassis was built by ming or ming chassis, any good or bad?

2) it is 125" with a four link set up?

3) the upper and lower frame rails are 10" c/c, is this to high for top rail for big block, will it have the centerline of the engine to high off ground?

4) please give me insight.
