Default Don Ness says his wheelie bars are wave of future?

**FROM COMPETITION PLUS**
http://www.competitionplus.com/index...-ness-creation

Don Ness was as proud as he could be walking through the pits at Summit Raceway Park in Norwalk, Ohio. He was more than willing to show off his latest creation to anyone who would take the time to look.

Ness, a veteran chassis builder known for his prowess in building Pro Stockers, no longer has a race car to showcase. He’s now in the wheelie bar business and firmly believes his carbon fiber model could become the greatest thing since sliced bread for this area of the race car.

Ness believes the carbon fiber bars, coupled with the billet hardware creates a unit that is up to 40-percent stronger, while weighing in at 30 pounds lighter.

Ness believes his new product line represents the wave of the future.

“I think so. I really do,” Ness said. “If you can take 15 to 20 pounds off a car how can that hurt? And, especially unsuspended weight. It looks like the sales are going to be great. We're looking forward to putting them on a lot of cars in the next two weeks.”

The new wheelie bars are designed for Pro Modified, Pro Stock and Competition eliminator applications for now but according to Ness he’s already working on a Funny car design. The units will retail in the $5,000 range.

Ness has a dealer network in place through leading chassis builders Tim McAmis, Jerry Bickel, Jerry Haas and Dennis Burnevik. He’s even fielding orders personally.

“They are available right now, next week,” Ness said. “I just got in shipment of carbon, which I was waiting for. All the hardware is done already; just got to glue them together. It takes twenty minutes to put a set together.”

And Ness believes those 20 minutes will make a big difference in a team looking for performance outside of the engine.

Ness is the King of Innovation when it comes to tube chassis cars. Almost every improvement in design in the last 35 yrs came from his head......talk about "often copied".

I heard Duck is getting a set for all the winners in each class at ORTC in October! They look good but Id prefer them not being there all together.

I highly doubt Ness would put anything out there that hasn't been tested in some fashion.

5k is nothing when then these guys are dropping more coin on titanium stuff. I bet all the top runners will have the bars with in two events.

How much are a set of titanium bars. And everyone wonders why the cost or racing keeps escalating.

Gimmick designed to seperate suckers from their money...

Now if Ness were truly serious about light-weight structrual carbon fiber composition, he'd do something closer to this:

A lot of the titanium bars have issues cracking and breaking.
As hard as a pro extreme car can be on components I'd like to see some testing.
