    i dont know about the 5 cars but im having a single seat 1600 chassis built by him!!! the cars and his fab work are really sweet up close... very reasonably priced fab work with high quality!!! i talked to a couple people that have ordered cars from him so he is sellin them... i hope to see a lot of 5 cars out there racing again...

    im thinkin about having him build me a street legal class 5 eventually!!! wouldnt that be nice, only n my dreams or at least til i graduate and start makin some good money to support my racin habit!!!

    He's the guy that promised a chassies to the Class 9 MORE champ a few years ago and bailed, refusing to return calls, changing his story...

    I have not herd of him, but it looks like a good price with rear arms-micro stubs beam and shock mounts. Sounds a little ify by reading Acmes post as well as Fourstrokers. Has anyone on here delt with this place before? Sounds like a crappy thing to promise something like that and bail out on your promise like that. Looks like a little extra scrutinizing should be in order for anyone thinking about one of these

    Don't know of him myself, but if I was going to get back into this class my order would be thru Jesse at Hustler, made my ex car a winner.

    Jim Anderson is taken over our lastest 5 car project, the car is now at Alumicraft to have the sheet metal and fiberglass parts fitted. It is an exact duplicate of our current car except it will have a five speed and type I. It should be ready to race by late September.

    I agree, as many that were stated to me to be on order (over 30?) somebody here on RDC has to know something??, the silence says a lot. These cars he says he is building are going to be mellow 5 cars that are supost to be in there own class of 5. kinda a speak class 5 All are supost to run bus transmissions, no motors over 2 liter all type 1 not as wide, all made out of DOM, all made exactly the same with 2 inch longer front arms I think he said hard top or convertable etc is what he told me. really got my intrest, but if it goes the way he said will not help class 5 at all with entries.
