Rhodes Race Cars, from Crete, Illinois, has a full line of competition chassis components for a wide variety of vehicles. Rhodes both installs and sells its chassis and suspension products for individual racers and other shops to install on their customer cars. Rhodes makes those components on-site so it is truly a one-stop chassis shop.

Now, Rhodes is set to offer that same craftsmanship for any component idea you have. What this means is that any idea(s) you have that you want for your car, or other project, Rhodes can manufacturer the parts for you, in any volume. Rhodes will offer competitive pricing on small prototype projects up to high-volume production runs.

Rhodes will offer CNC milling, CNC turning, water jet cutting, tube cutting and bending, plate and sheet shearing, press brake metal forming, Tig/Mig welding, AutoCAD design, and metal finishing, which includes powdercoating, polishing, and anodizing.

The best way for you to proceed to have Rhodes make your next component is to send them a sketch or file for your component idea, and get a quote to get started.
