        Recently the SCRRA announced that it was allowing 2 new bodies for our yearly Boola Bash NASCAR Enduro coming up at the end of next month. The JK Chevy # B125B and the vitually identical JK Ford # B126B and BPR now has these bodies in stock. The old Mercury Cyclone is still legal and several racers have informed me of other comparable Mercury Cyclones which are available.  JK makes one and the number is B137B and the other is made by Outisight and the number is O/S 653. If you want to try these bodies you will have to get them from the manufacturers as Debby at BPR is ordering only the JK Chevy and Ford to keep it simple for only a yearly race.  Make sure any body you get is .010 thick or it will NOT be allowed. Even though the old Cyclone and the new JK's are very different in appearance, I ran some tests at BPR the other day with both bodies on the same car, back to back, and they both felt the same and handled great and the times were exactly the same!

 

                               P1170003.JPG

 

      In the past we've allowed the Cyclone  (above)  to run a 1/2" spoiler on top of the small built in spoiler and the overall height of body and spoiler is about 1 9/16"  (1.562).............so, to keep things simple and the bodies comparable the new rule will be........."MAXIMUM Rear Body Height of 1 9/16" inclusive of spoiler when measured on a test block.  Spoilers may be as wide as the body."

 

                              P1160999.JPG

 

      Here is a JK Ford with a small spoiler bringing the MAX height to 1 9/16".  As pictured here the rear may be cut out and the Cyclone may be cut out also.  The JK bodies can be mounted much higher than the maximum of 1 9/16" so keep this in mind.

 

                              P1170006.JPG

 

      Interiors must be run and must fully cover all parts of the chassis when viewed from above and a 3D driver must be present.  I think BPR has Nascar and Drag interiors that work and Parma has all sorts to choose from. The car pictured here has a piece of .005 lexan for an interior with an F1 driver glued on.  Windows may NOT be cut out

 

      More to follow shortly in the Boola Bash race announcement and if anyone has any questions please feel free to ask!   :)

   Marco,

      I'm not exactly sure what you are asking about?............Here is a pic of the JK Ford I have mounted using the JK front cut line on the body as a guide.  You must be careful to allow ample room for the front tires and fender clearance when mounting (the same as on the Mercury Cyclone) but absolutely no problems if the front bumper is left long enough.  If you mount the front any lower than this you may have problems with the front wheels fouling the body.  If you follow the JK cut line on the sides, the body will have an extreme rake and will be higher than the allowed 1 9/16" so trim accordingly.   Tape reinforcement of the front is permitted but no front spoilers of any kind are allowed.  :)

Bryan,

 

Sounds like fun and the new bodies are completely different than the "slammed" Mercury.


She's real fine, my 409!!!

Bryan,

   Tim,

       Yes! Completely different!  The Mercury Cyclone is very slammed and very long and the JK bodies are much more to scale and a little shorter but both ran identical times and felt the same when I did some back to back tests at BPR recently.  Both are easy to mount but a good thing about the new JK's is that the shorter and stiffer rear end eliminates the need for a rear body brace that was necessary on the Cyclone.

      I will start an Enduro sign up sheet here on Slotblog shortly........... :)

Also looks like the jk bodies are newer style NASCAR type, not retro style.

Fake tech sheet? Lol

Robert and I was testing. Last week the chassis was evil in a bad way. We did some analyzing and Robert made the modification and now the chassis is good. So Mike and Tim we have a good car thats nice to drive.

Roy and Chuck were also testing and breaking in motors.

Our team is the rookie team as I don't believe any of the team has done the Boola enduro before. Think it will be fun, but I will let you know afterwards, ha ha. The chassis feels good, Robert did a fine job of building it.

     Mike,

          I saw the Nascar chassis that Bob Ahulii made......absolutely AWESOME!   Mill told me he drive it and it runs GREAT!

 

      As you guys are running this event for the first time please keep in mind that tech will start at 9 AM sharp and the track will also be turned off at this time.  We have the F1 race following the Enduro so we hope to get started by 9:30 and we've never had a problem as everyone has kept things moving along smartly.    Be Ready!      See you this weekend!  :good:
