Simplicity through design. And that’s just it, D1 Chassis simply just works! Our goal is to provide our drivers and owners with a product that is undeniable one of the nicest micro sprint chassis on the market today. We take pride in the product we produce, and our pride shows through in our craftsmanship. That craftsmanship also transfers to performance on the track. We guarantee, the first lap you take in a D1 Chassis, you will feel the difference! Everything you want and need in a race car, is right here with a D1 Chassis!
The D1 Chassis was first designed to go fast and handle well. Second, it was designed to look the part too! All of our components come anodized black: radius rods, spindles, birdcages, arms, ALL of it. We want your D1 to be the fastest race car you have ever owned, as well as the nicest!
D1 Chassis are torsion bar cars. Why torsion bars? Torsion bars provide consistency and stability. Our standard long-bar (LBX) front torsion bar design provides for the utmost weight transfer and forward bite on corner exit. With that, set ups and adjustments are consistent and predictable when you need a race car that you can rely on to be there every lap of every race!
D1 Chassis are Jacob’s Ladder cars. Our Jacob’s Ladder geometry is specific to provide that side bite every driver is looking for on corner exit. We guarantee the first lap you take in a D1, you will know exactly what we are talking about! Added bonus, every D1 Jacob’s Ladder is adjustable to fine tune your car with changing track surfaces.
Safety is very important to us and we want you to be sure that your driver is in the safest place possible out on the track. All of our D1 Chassis’ come standard with a left side ‘J-bar’ (aka ‘smith bar’) and right side ‘sissy bar’ for added driver protection when it is needed most.
We understand that some drivers do not care for these safety features such as a ‘J bar’ or ‘sissy bar’. Therefore, upon request we can construct a chassis with either of these features removed.
In 2016 we made chassis design changes to set us apart from our competitors. We had drivers new and existing looking for more feel from the car, so we went to the drawing board and produced the newest edition of the D1 Chassis with handling and strength in mind! These changes proved successful the first night the 2016 design hit the track! Forging into 2018 we have seen great success and positive feedback based on the direction we set out for in 2016. 2017 proved to provide even better results for our customers who combined for over 227 wins during the race season!
Every year we strive to improve our driver’s comfort level. In 2016 we added our Adjustable Pedal Rail System standard in every car. Our adjustable system grows with your driver, without compromising cockpit space. Our mounting rails are designed to be hidden under the floor board and allow for a sleek compact pedal system.
