Is there such a thing as a LTO (Oval) Retro Stock Car chassis?

 

I've looked around and haven't been able to find a used one for sale.

 

Thanks in advance.

Not many out there, I make them for the oval I race at here in FL. My cars come out close to the 120 min weight.

What would make a LTO chassis different?  Retro rules do not allow a left side bias in the build other than weights.

Basically just a light pan on the outside. Most people just use a standard chassis with just some left side weight and a harder outside rear tire.

"Retro rules do not allow a left side bias in the build other than weights."   ????

 

Whose rules are YOU using?  Current (2018) IRRA stock car rules say nothing about a symetrical chassis design.  Different (or no) pans could be used and different wire sizes and combinations or design could be used.

Tire size and compound can be staggered as well as long as the minimum dimensions are maintained.

Cap Henry makes a real good LTO stock car chassis for Retro racing. The few times that I've gotten race mine it hasn't lost in an oval yet.

I found this photo on the CHR Cars Facebook Page. I have sent a message asking if I could have one like it built.

 

"Gary Clinton Jr's winning stock car. Pretty cool Gary let me build something different for him."

I have a couple CHR retro Can-Am and F1 cars and have been very happy with them.

Back when we used to run 4-1/2" flexi cars on ovals in Queen City, you should'a seen the things that Dick P used to do to those to get an offset in 'em! even turning one of the hubs around to bury the gear inside like a 32 eurosport. fun times.
