Nice engineering, how the uprights flare into the chassis should keep uprights more stable

kinda like this chassis --- pretty basic, no chassis of the month, no super secret tweaking --- just basic tuning options which everyone can do.

I would run with a over power motor and a max wt limit, so that to go fast - you have to be smooth rather that punched

I guess these won't be legal for any sort of "Box Stock" series races being held at multiple tracks? Box Stock racing is a blast, always loved fishing in the money with the slowest car.

Nice!

 

What is the retail price on the roller chassis sans body? What motor is installed and, of course, what is the gear ratio?

 

Thanks!

Patrick - when Parma used to sell them, they used Velcro strips to attach the body.

Why can't you create a "box stock class" wherever you want to race!! Just get the class started and invite racers.  Create your own rule set--and GO!  Just takes a little promoting--how do you think ANY box stock class gets started?


She's real fine, my 409!!!
