I am in need of a left turning IRRA® legal stock car. Who builds the winningest stocker?

 

Needed in Orlando area mailbox by Jan 26.  Testing Jan 27, 28, race is Jan 29 GRRR Florida.

 

Pictures help the emotional response called - purchase!

This one I built Gary Clinton Jr has won a bunch of races down your way. I'll check tomorrow, if I have the parts in stock I could get one to you by then, other wise probably not.

Just missed out on one of mine that was in the showcase at HVR. Sold it last week. Running very close to track record times. :)

Thanks, Mike and Cap. I am brand new to stockers and am eager to learn. Any and all advice welcome!

 

I might add, the builder will be a mystery until the tech sheet is turned in... too many great builders out there.

 

Feel free to show off chassis pics here!

Charlie, not many run "left turn only" Stock Cars up here since none of our races are on ovals. Tony P has built a few for down there.

Go with the CHR By Cap. He has built one of my best Can-Ams.

He races real 410 Sprint cars so he knows how to turn left. He knows race cars.

I have to mount 2 O/S Daytona and 2 Parma Cyclone bodies for testing on left turns - never mounted any before, first time stocker.  I have them painted, along with matching interiors from each manufacturer.  They are ready to cut and mount.  Any help is appreciated.  Pictures are awesome if someone can show some.  Chassis will be here this week.

Here are a couple pictures of the O/S I mounted. Be careful when mounting as the front splitter is not molded evenly and you can not cut up above it. I could have gone slightly lower but not much.

James Merriman Stocker vs. CHR Stocker:

 

Weight upon receipt: 67g vs. 89g - Left Turn Only cars

 

Thanks Builders!  Awesome cars!

 

I set up both cars 9/27 on a shortened day of testing on Saturday.  Cap's got the O/S Daytona, James' car got the Parma Cyclone.

 

Cap's car was .1 faster upon initial test - Along with a local hot shoe oval racer's comment, "better run the heavy duty looking one if you want to survive", and a shortened test time, I chose Cap's to finish tuning and make it the race car.  Ran out of time (like always) before I could cut and mount the other bodies I painted - I'm sure next time James' car will get faster!  (gonna need help placing weights - better than guessing)  Note: 3 cars in the race broke so bad, pieces on the track needed a dump truck to haul away...Grant finished without the center shaker thingamabob, it was a car that could take severe punishment, thats for sure.

 

CHR LTO Stocker would enter the banked turn with any other car, and come out 2 feet ahead.

No qualifying, but ran .11 faster than the rest - If only the driver could manage to stay in the slot. :blink:
