Velocity put two of these cars in the A Main in their first national event. With almost all of the top drivers in the nation in attendance at the 2013 KDOC, Chris Baumgartner finished on the podium in 3rd place.

I found the website but I do not see how to order one. Also are there any suggestions on a body/cage kit? I've got a FTB4.1 sitting around collecting dust...

Joe,

On the left side of the home page is a tab labeled "items", click that, then click kits and you will see the option to put the kit into the shopping cart.

Most of the guys have been using Custom Works cage/body, etc.

What type of surface do you run on?

OK On the site it said now available in the shopping cart so I was trying to go through there. They just put in a dirt oval at the local track and I haven't run anything there yet. They are not planning on having a sprint car class but will run them if enough people show up. I have a pair of Sliders I figured to bring along to run if anyone else ever shows up with some and if it takes off go with something like this.

Yes the Big Bores will work, they suggest running front shocks all the way around but will work with rear shocks too...

So these will convert whichever car you choose between b4,b4.1, or b4.2? Thanks have a dirt oval stating up next spring and this might be what I'm looking for to build over the winter!!

Tim - Working on Video, if you search for the 2013 KDOC there are two cars in that video.

Chester - Yes, from the very first B4 kit all the way through the B4.2 Factory Team.

Yes, but the real question is "why would you want to use them?" Your best bet is to use Associated B4.1 front shocks on all 4 corners with either CustomWorks or RC For Less Long springs in the 3 to 7 Lb range unless you want to spring for CW MDX long or IRS long shocks.
