Who is building the Elite Chassis? Is Elite Chassis owned by Billy Torrance? I am interested in one of their cars. If anyone has any info please let me know.

Thanks

My son was because he sees a lot of Millers now and because he didn’t like most of the cosmetic changes Elite made but I wasn't because my car works so good. Also Elite will build what ever I want which is an exact duplicate of my car. He has also changed his mind after sitting in a Miller and seeing Travis Laster’s car this weekend which has none of the elite cosmetic changes.

Elite is NOT owned by Torrance. They have their own gig going.

If you want a real Undercover car, you have the guy that built them at Undercover and the guy with an original jig build it, Bill Frederick aka Elite Chassis.

Elite did some chassis repairs for me a while back. Then modified some control arms and finish welded a set of headers I had cut and tacked together. They're good guys.

When I was having wheelie problems with my Spitzer they suggested changing the engine angle, after they did that the car worked better that it ever did, no more wheelies even with the 50+ lbs in the nose that I had in there removed, 60's improved and car was more consistent.

Did they increase or decrease the engine angle?

Ed are you saying you might own Elite at some point or you are going to have them build you a car?

Pretty sure he meant that he would have them build him a car in the future.
