I won the 2002 birds touring oval class, and qualified .2 off for a 3rd this year with a 6th place in the A due to the "brutal" main. I won the birds club race on Thursday and the car was ballistic in qualifying Friday......only .2 separated the top 3 cars! As the traction came up it became a different story though. I incorporated a slider tray off the L4 onto my tc3. I cut the battery slots most of the way down with just enough left to mount the tray I made several option holes and this allowed full movement from front to back with the tray. My buddy ran and xray with the slider tray installed and then the corally guys went and installed one on their car. I've ran touring oval there for 3 years and the class is a blast.
From the looks of that chassis it appears that the left side has to be rubbing the body (?). I didn't find any real advantage in getting the cells that far out on the left. I for one would be interested in trying something like what you have out just to compare the two. The key to touring oval seems to be the right gear. A lot of racers base their guesstimates on on-road gearing to start with, and that's way off the mark. My car was fast enough however to catch the eye of Pro-Match for some sonsorship so that was a big plus
You guys look as though you've got a nice product their. I'm hoping will keep enough interest here in Central Fl., with the opening on the hottest indoor facility I've ever seen....RPM Speedway. Keep us posted on availability and pricing. If you need anyone to do some unbiased testing, let me know.
