    Whats the difference ?

    What makes a Top Sportsman car different from a Pro Stock different from a 7.50 cert 2x3 chassied car ?... Besides weight and price.
    What would make the best low 8 bracket car ?

    Im guessing the T/S car with dbl frame rails to withstand the rigors of bracket racing.

    A T/S and P/S chassis is a close comparison. The 2x3 7.50 cert car is not. There is more requirements for bars and frame rails in the T/S and P/S cas versus a 7.50 cert car. If money was not an object, I certainly would look at a P/S car. You can make the necessary adjustments to make it a low 8 second bracket car. Probably a little over kill with some of the equipment but it leaves you room to move on. You will find a quality T/S car for less money and it will work just as well.

    Overall, if you want to go fast for cheap, buy a dragster. :lol:

    P/S cars are chromoly and now T/S cars are also and they will Cert. to 6.0
    A 2X3 car hasn't ran in pro stock or top sportsman for years and a lot of those cars want cert. to 7.50 there are a lot more bars in critical ares that wasn't necessary when they were built .
    The chassis rules have been updated a lot in the last few years if you need a car that will cert to 7.50 it would be a good ideal to take a chassis guy with you if it isn't already got a 7.50 cert. on it .

    My nova was a 7.50 cert. car until this year and now it will only cert.8.50 unless i ad a funny car cage and a couple of other bars to it . but it will never see a 7.50 pass anyway it runs 8.70"s so the 8.50 cert. will be fine.
