Sounds like they charge whatever the hell they want to !!! Should be a standard fee if you take it to them.

Met my guy at a Sears parking lot and if i remember he charged me 150. He was super good at meeting me seeing as i was coming back from an 8 hr drive to pick up the car from the chassis shop and it was a Saturday night . Can't say enough good things about Tim Toso.

IT DEPENDS WHICH CERT YOUR GETTING.
since when? in the last 2 month's i've had 2 cars certed one 25.5 and one 8.50 both were $150 plus trip i think the 8.50 cert should be about 1/2 what a 25.X cert is alot less bars to deal with

Carefull bring up that kind of logic. They may decide they need to charge double for the 25.5 instead! :) Our Local Division 6 guy Steve is great! He lives down the street from my shop so no travel time. He also gives a group discount for multiple cars. It never hurts to have the cars inside in a heated shop with coffe and doughnuts either.

We had a chassis seminar here in So IL last weekend. It was 194 for a 8.50 cert.
150 to NHRA
30 Convience Fee
14 mileage/travel fee

The mileage was based on 12 or 13 cars and he had to travel about 2.5 hours each way to do them. The car I had done was a brand new cage and no interior yet so it did not take very long to do it but I can see where a fast car would take longer. Honestly I was not watching too close (too busy BSing) but I know he sonic checked all of the bars, looked at all the welds and checked the floor plates. I had the net in it but other than the steering column thats all that was in the car so I am not sure if he even looked at anything else.
