Really nice... That chassis looks like the way to go. I don't really follow the pullers but the ones I've seen don't have tube chassies. Is that a rule or sanctioning body deal?

Just like drag racing, there are many classes in pulling and what you can and can't use is dictated by what class you run. The lower classes are usually only allowed to use the factory frame and have ci limits. I'm sure this truck is in the highest class that is N/A. The blower motor classes will use a similar chassis.

run what ya brung and hope you brung enough
