Awesome looking cars. I wish there were more dirt kits/short track kits out there. 

Not trying to be facetious, but every kit out there can be a dirt/short track car.  Just let your imagination run wild, use some NASCAR chassis if available, or scratchbuild whatever you need.  There are plenty resin suppliers of engine parts, wheels & tires, and almost any other part you might need.  Now I realize you did mention kits, but unfortunately for us short track fans they are really few and far between.  Just as an example here are a couple of regular kits I built into short-track.

I totally get that. It’s been many years since I’ve built. I would love to see a work in progress showing some tips and tricks. I am thinking of trying my hand at a dirt late model but am not sure how to proceed.
