With extensive experience in building street rod and custom chassis, we go behind the scenes to take a closer look at the offerings and what customers can expect when ordering a TCI Engineering Ford Street Rod chassis, as well as some of the countless options available.
Heidts PRO-G IRS system for Tri-Five Chevy’s offers bolt in ease, auto-cross performance, and a plush ride. They take the car out on the street and the track in this video to show how it handles.

When it comes to American muscle cars, there is no limit to what can be done with a pro-touring goal. That is unless you’re hindered by time, money or ability to create your perfect car. But lucky for you first-generation Camaro fans, Chassisworks just recently added to their line of 1967-1969 Camaro parts.

Over the years it’s been a common and often accepted misconception that rods and customs can only look good, but that they don’t handle and ride very well. We got together with RideTech who showed us you can have both, you just need the right knowledge paired with the right parts.

We’re on a mission for traction as we try to feed 1,300 horsepower through a stock type suspension and some skinnny M/T drag radials on Project BlownZ. How do we plan to do that? Easy – with tough parts from Moser, Afco, and Wolfe Racecraft, mixed in with adjustability and endless hours of chassis tuning…

Chassis stiffening and safety are things almost any enthusiast would want to take advantage of, and Moroso’s frame connectors and driveshaft loop for new Camaros are a great way to take care of both. So, follow along as we install Moroso’s latest chassis and safety components on a 5th Gen Camaro…

The job of getting BlownZ’s power to the ground at the starting line lies on the suspension, and it all starts with the front suspension setting the events in motion to get the weight to the rear tires. Read along as we set up Project BlownZ’s front suspension for maximum effectiveness at the drag strip…

It’s one thing to go fast, but it takes more than horsepower to get around the corners. We install Ridetech’s suspension, Stainless Steel Brake system to make it handle as good as it looks. We also throw in a sticky set of Continental rubber on all four corners for a smooth ride and unparalleled adhesion.

In this feature tech piece we’re going to take a look at the in’s and out’s of the basic roll cage, from the materials they’re constructed of, to where you can have one installed, what it will cost you, and what NHRA regulations you need to know before you chop up your prized vehicle and start bending and welding.

We performed a mad thrash in an attempt to squeeze the car into the 9’s at the end of the season, with a 9.94 at 134 MPH. The mad thrash taught us a few things, so we went right back to our friend Dave Zimmerman and his group of craftsmen at Team Z Motorsports for a few additional chassis updates to Project 666.

Project MaxStreet, our blown, big-block ’66 Chevy II, is full of cool stuff—850 ProCharged rear-wheel horsepower, all good parts that ensure this rig will be a fun ride down the quarter-mile. That ride could, however, be our last if not for some necessary safety gear, namely a 10-point roll cage.

Launching on slicks or even drag radials puts an incredible amount of stress on the factory torque box, more than what it was designed for. Eventually, the cracks appear in the fatigued sheet metal and the mounting holes stretch out, which is why we turned to Wild Rides for our Project 666 Fox Body Mustang.

Project 666 gets fitted with new Kirkey racing seats, Holcomb seat brackets, a lightweight race steering column, and more in the latest round of upgrades to our ten-second quarter mile screamer.

Whether you’re picking up somebody’s old project, a grandma’s old grocery getter, or an auction-block award winner, take a second to look over the car closely. Run the numbers and don’t feel intimidated to ask about the car’s history. You want your first project to be a positive one and not something you regret.
It might have been awhile since you have seen an update on our 666. The Mustang is going to be used as a temporary race car for the 2011 PSCA racing season. The class we plan to run is Limited Street, though the Mustang will be there just to gain points while the real car is being built.

Our Project MaxStreet Chevy II needed a rear suspension that could handle the power from our Musi/Edelbrock 555-inch big block and really plant the tires effectively. The folks are Detroit Speed hooked us up with their new QUADRALink that will accomplish just that.

We knew we could do better than the OEM 18-inch alloys wrapped in 50-series Pirelli rubber in both looks and performance for our Hellion-turbocharged 2010 Mustang. While we were at it, we also wanted to upgrade our stopping ability to match the car’s 450 wheel horsepower with some new performance rotors.
