    Been around the northeast modified world as a pit crew member for 5 years looking into a 600 mirco sprint. What chassis is best? How much should I set aside for this car. Any help would be greatly appreciate

    I am by no means an expert, but I like RTS and Triple X. Hypers are no doubt one of the fastest cars, but i do not trust the safety of them with the thinner walled tubing on the roll cage. With a hyper expect to spend about $20k for a complete brand new car, an RTS around $15k. Hypers tend to be more expensive than anything else, but if it were me id look for a newer used RTS wishbone or if you have to, z-link car. It all comes down to what you like and can make work. Its all down to the driver........

      Is the diam. of the tube the same size? Hyper always used a larger diam. tube then anyone else.

        It is the same diam., just different thickness of the tubing wall. They crumble like a tin can. There for a while they had a problem with the welds breaking
