There Is a Difference
In The Huddleston Performance Way.............
2017 HP Assassin 7.90 Turn-Key Car
Here at Huddleston Performance we spent a lot of seasons
racing Jr. Dragsters, and the majority of those years ended
with us collecting a Championship. Throughout those years we
made ALL the mistakes racers tend to make. Everything from
having the wrong hardware, to ordering less than we needed
to compete at a high level. From those years of both
mistakes and winning came a knowledge base unparalleled in
the Jr. Dragster industry. That being the case, when the
time came to begin production of the Huddleston Performance
Assassin Line of chassis's we knew what bells and whistles
racers needed to win on the local and national levels.
The difference in the Huddleston Performance way versus our
competitors lies in the details and knowledge put into each
racecar. Every car that leaves Huddleston Performance is
either a Complete Roller or a Turn-Key Car. We do not supply
stripped down rollers, to us those are the cars where details are
missed and races are lost. Everything from chassis design to
location of your taillight to multi-adjustable seats to
small details such as heat shrinking each wire connection
and loctiting all necessary bolts, we
cover all the details to ensure you have a successful run with
your HP Chassis.
The Difference is in the
An Intro To Our Chassis
first difference you will notice is the design of the
chassis itself. The
Huddleston Performance Assassin Chassis incorporates our
Triple Slip Design. This design gives the backhalf of our
chassis the movement it needs to firmly plant the tires each
and every pass. By taking some of the work load off the rear
tire, and putting it into the racecar, it helps to eliminate
overhooking and the resulting tire spin and shake on higher horsepower cars. This results
in a more consistent racecar from pass to pass.
Next you will notice the HP Three Bar Front Design. Our HP
Designed front ends incorporate an adjustment on the lower
frame rail to allow you to add or subtract preload based on
on your wants. However, unlike other three bar designs, ours
does not bind the front of your car up beyond a certain
All Huddleston Performance Assassin Chassis are built using
a "Three Bay" drivers compartment. For those of you new to
the Jr. world, a bay is the window created between 2
uprights and 1 diagonal in the drivers compartment. By
current sanctioning body rules you are allowed to run either
a "Two Bay" or a "Three Bay" chassis design if you use the
correct spacing. However, here at Huddleston Performance we
take driver's safety very seriously. That being the case we
strongly believe the more bars holding your driver, the
safer they are each time they leave the starting line.
Finally, HP Chassis' are built with a 20" wide cage as
our standard setting. This allows your driver room to grow
without the need for a new car every year or 2. We also have
the capabilities of building a car to suit your driver. If
you would prefer a wider or even narrower car we can build
it. The amazing part is that we can make your car look just
as good as our standard 20" cars. Many of you have seen HP
Chassis' that were wider or narrower than standard and you
didn't even realize it thanks to our ability to change the
bodies to fit. Custom widths must be ordered so allow time
for this, and the use of Aluminum bodies is a must on custom
An Intro To Our Components
Billet Adjustable Offset Spindles
have worked hard to create the most racer friendly racecars
available today. As such it seemed natural to start at the
front of the car and improve as we went back. That is why
the first thing you will notice on all Huddleston
Performance Assassin Chassis's is the use of Billet Adjustable
Offset Front Spindles. These newest spindles not only offer
a racer more options on raceday, but being made of billet
aluminum they are some of the strongest spindles available
on the market today.
One of the best features of these spindles is the
variety of adjustment you have. Whether you have problems
with the beams at your track, or you need to add/subtract
rollout for your driver, these spindles allow you to make small
changes (without having to re-check or re-set toe in). In a matter of minutes you can have 0 offset, 1"
offset, or 2" offset.
In addition to finer adjustments, these spindles are also
some of the quickest to change in the industry today. Simply
take the positive lock loose, unscrew the wheel stud, change
holes and tighten back down. In only a few short minutes you
can have any offset adjustment you would like. This is a
great option when you find yourself in a time crunch between
Adjustable Lower Seat Mount Bar
years we raced with one of the bigger driver's in the Jr.
Dragster League. Out growing a number of cars throughout our
long career, we didn't want to see other racers go through
that same hardship. That is why all Huddleston Performance
Assassin Chassis's come standard with an Adjustable Lower
Seat Mount Bar.
This innovation has allowed racers to go from 1 or 2 years
in a car to an entire career in the same car if they desire.
By offering cars that are already 20" wide at the cage
(industry standard is 18"), you simply change out seats
which lay your driver down more as they grow.
We offer a number of different depth seats to allow your
driver ample room to grow throughout their career.
Installing the seat is simple: get your new seat, lay the
seat in your current car, mark the quarter turn holes and
drill them, move Adjustable Lower Seat Mount Bar to its new
location and drill 2 holes in your floor board to hold it,
install your seat and trim the edges to your desired
fitment. In one evening you can completely change how well
your driver fits in their ride!
Giving racers the most consistent car is important, but your
driver having the ability to stop it is equally important.
For many years it was accepted by racers to put kart
style brakes on their Jr. Dragster. Very few chassis
builders incorporated anything better. The
Huddleston Performance Assassin comes standard with a Strange
Brake Caliper and lighten 7" Brake Rotor.
The combination of a superior caliper and lightened brake
rotor give our chassis' greater stopping ability than most
on the market today. These systems give a great stiff pedal
to the driver, allowing them to stop easier and safer after
