This is for the 1/32 version of the JK C11 chassis, which the British seem to call the X32.

Never forget that first place goes to the racer with the MOST laps, not the racer with the FASTEST lap

Ben,

In the UK.

I believe the BCSRA has a class for these cars. Perhaps a BSCRA member will post to confirm.

Have raced them in ISRA NE USA as a 1/32 Production car. NJ guys ran them for a while. Uncertain if they still do. 

 

This is the best entry level 1/32 on the market, bar none...

I am looking to build a couple of these cars. I am going to build one with a two-piece chassis and one with a three-piece chassis. I want to set them both up the same to start to get a feel for the different handling characteristics.

Any one have any tips on setups and tricks that have improved the handling? I am curious as to what different "Bite Bars" will do to the handling?

I plan to run 3/32 axles. I have been looking into 2mm axles and wondering if there are any noticeable gains?
 
Thanks.

Zach, I see you're from Maine. Where do you race, Windham or Lewiston?

Are you building these for fun or to race?  They are racing this class at the ROC there in Windham.  But you might want to look at the rules because they don't allow 2mm axles in this car...

1.  The bigger the bite bar the tighter the car will be.

2.  2mm will somewhat lighten the rear, but limits the tire choices (based on hubs)

3.  Body selection can help; several good OS and RF choices out there
