I have never raced on the Engleman.
What kind of chassis runs well on that track.
I am going to race Coupe & Can-Am on it at the coming Fall Brawl.
The cars running well on Gerding Kings are OK on the Engleman?

Thanks in advance,

You have it right. That track is a fan of stiff, limited movement cars. The chassis that you used at RP3 will do well. I plan on running my KAMO car there.

Haruki, just take a look at the reports for the most recent races there, they should give you a very good idea of what works. Noose does a very nice job of including pictures of the top 3 in each class.
It will be very nice to have you racing with us again!

Until the track gets rubbered up real good, tire choice is treated rubber. Afterwards you can change to wonder.

It is going to take a lot to go to Wonder Rubber on the Engleman. In the Enduro we still ran on treated after 6 hours.

The only thing bad about Retro is admitting that you remember doing it originally.
