Hey King, thanks, but here is something for you, we are looking into a better chassis set up for our "Group 5" class...we are looking a a base 902 and trying to find ways to enhance it's performance while basically keeping as close to stock as possible....

use a slottech T3!!

just kidding

what we did 1 year was allow sanding of the front tires to help drop the car.
as well as any hubs. those 2 things alone make a huge difference.

then there simply the normal SG+/G3 tweaks

So far they like adding the independent front, were now looking at any double flange rear hub and any tire....I think I will mandate that the front end be .350.....

I actually ran the car and nicked the mirror....she's now locked away in my vault.....I just wanted you to see her before I put her away.....

Like I said before I don't build show cars...I build them to race....not just to show....shelf queens are not my style....

and delved into the 310 range at times

If we run a stock based chassis the front tire height would be based off the current G3 which is a .350 front end...and you would be able to use ether the stock Marcos or the new F1 style front end...but if we decide to go semi-stock we can use the independent front end and mandate that the front tire size would be a .350.....

Belive me..it's not scraping but it's pretty low....but then again it depends on the tracks rails...on some tracks I've run as low as .335....and the chassis cleared....
