Wow, .18s for nitro cars. Sounds like Texas.

Too bad everyone else in the country runs .12s. That may keep a lot of people away. Are there any other rules for the cars like wing sizes and chassis widths?

Don't forget to post it at dirtoval.com, I'm sure a lot of people will be interested.

Actually the rules are very close to the DODC Nitro Tour Western Region rules. the .12s may end up being faster with all the traction. Wont lift the front off the ground as hard as the bigger motors .

most of the dodc sprint guys have .12's that make as much or more power than the .18's anyhow. not to mention the power curve of a hot .12 is much more suited for dirtoval racing.

We make tons more power than those .12's.. Lifting the front end isnt really that big of a deal. Its all in Chassis prep.. Larry hows it goin bud?

I saw that Custom Works is one of the sponsors. Anybody run custom works bodies? Specifically what I am interested in is the width of their Bullet Wedge Body or Bloomquist Wedge Body. Would they fit on a 190mm wide RC10L3-T.

Currently I am running a 200mm wide body on it so close would work.

Or is there anybody else that makes 190mm wide wedge bodies?

Thanks.

FWR: All CustomWorks latemodel bodies are roughly 9 inches wide, 8.75" wide cars and narrower will fit under them fine.

Hope this helps,

190mm wide is 7.5", so the wide CW bodies will be VERY wide on your pan car. You can find late model bodies from McAllsiter in 200mm (electric TC) and 210mm (nitro TC), Factory Works 195mm and 9.25" (CW and Terminator 2wd) with a 205mm on the way for nitro touring cars. Parma makes an odd looking late model body for electric TCs, as well.

Some inventive dirt oval guys have taken the Custom Works Bloomquist wedge and cut it down the right side, trimmed out some width, then used nylon nuts and bolts to narrow it all up. I wish CW would get on that promised new body for touring cars sooner than later.

Thanks for the info, it looks like the Factory Works 7351 or the Parma 10138 will work for what I want.
