Truck Racing Championship

What are the proposed rules for a truck racing class? Iím planning on building something and want to make I start off on the right foot.
What wheelbase?
What wheel offsets? Racer or LM tires?

Hmm interesting...

Depends on the size of truck being used I guess. I've seen f1 tires being used before... so with LM tires and racer tires. Each looked pretty cool...

What is the wheelbase of the body? I think that should be the focus on setting the wheelbase of the chassis.

Do you have a source for the bodies?

I think a FWD chassis might work very well with these bodies...

Don't quote me but I believe they are all the same wheelbase and not super wide offsets either.

Fly sells the BUGGYRA TRUCK BODY KIT WITH LIGHTWEIGHT INTERIOR at a reasonable $30 depending on where you shop. I believe most are buying from eBay sellers. You can occasionally find others at reasonable cost as well but takes patience and checking frequently. I love the gulf livery MAN If I ever see one at reasonable price that is the one I'll stick with.

I'm hoping the Remnant guys can chime in since they are leading the way and I'm riding the coat tales of piqued interest (I too love niche classes). I don't have mine yet but hope to discuss them in greater detail this weekend when I'm back at Remnant.

I have seen videos of some lexan bodies running on Atomic and GL chassis on the Mini-Z Garage book page... Looks like a lot of fun, just need to figure out the direction to go. Lexan or Fly. I definitely prefer the look to the slot bodies, but availability and cost might be a deciding factor.

I just ordered a red Buggyra body... will update more when it arrives.

I plan to model a 3d printed bumper for mounting the font end to the Mini-Z.

edit: Scalextric also make a 1/32 body which seems to be around $30+ ship BIN.
