    Hey guys I first wanted to say this forum is great.

    I am starting my first bucket build, planning a 23 build. I wanted to find out if anyone had the info on the frame dimensions from the speedway motors assembly manual compared to total performance manual. I have the original total performance 23 t bucket assembly manual but have noticed changes from the merge of total performance with speedway motors. Any help would be great. Thanks guys.

    Thanks guys, yes this site is awesome and eveyone has great info. I have been trying to find info about speedway motors t bucket kits but have found no luck. I know they have the kits on their website, but i want to build the chassis myself.

    Does anyone know where I can find the speedway t bucket assembly manual other than their website?

    I don't think that Speedway is offering the old Total assy manual. If you need some chassis plans to look at email me and I'll send you some. I have several different ones I can send you.

    RPM, i have some frame questions i wanted to get some help with. I am builing my t myself, and i was planning on going a 23 t route. i planning on purchasing the body next month and i was checking out this site doing all my research and planing and i decided i wanted to go with a 27 t route. i am a tall guy (6') and didnt want to go crusing and be cramped the whole way, also i wanted to sit low as i also want to build the t low. basically what i want is specs for a 27 t build, would you be able to help me out? i am either looking to go with a ccr body or a speedway body, i know ccr frame plans are built on 2x3 frame and speedway frames are a 1 1/2 x 3. what is your opinion on the different companies 27 t bodies and would a ccr body even fit on a speedway type frame?

    We offer a stretched 23 t body. It is stretched 10" in the cowl. There are several of the guys on here have them.

    In this second picture this is me setting in the body. I am 6'2" tall and pretty close to 300lbs, with plenty of room to spare.

    We at this time do not offer the 27 body. I am hoping to get the web site updated in the next week or so and we will have all the bodies and glass parts on there then.

    Nice, I like the look of that a lot. What is your prices and do you make it with a 20" bed? Also how about the floor with a tunnel also? Does that body have a functional door? Building a frame from tp specs would it need to be extended because of the longer body, I will be using a 350 sbc.

    The basic stretched body starts at $750. The body does have a working door. We do have a 20" bed.

    RPM,

    I did not see this body on your website. Are you making it or is it made by someone else?
