View Full Version : Small Metric, Big Metric or Chevelle

12-22-2010, 01:40 PM
Of the three stock frames that I listed in the title, which one would be best for asphalt and why. Is there a difference in the front end geometry that would make one better than the other. What is the difference between the small ~ big metric frames.

depending on what chevelle, if you are talking 70 chevelle that would probably be the best, than the big metric like the 85 impala, than the last choice would be the smaller metric, if you are talking 75 chevelle it would still be than the the smaller metric, but the 75 chevelle, or the big metric would probably need cut down

If your cutting them down to 105 or 108 or whatever the wheel base rule is then I would actually look for a 72 impala it is the WIDEST car you can find.

on pavement wider is better

Most pavement late models that are stock clip use camaro front clips.

For asphalt you want a WIDE car so go with the big car frame,,,
