Just finished my Nascar MR-015. Its not perfect but it should be easier for me to see on the track than the 99 black body it came with it.

0 offset all around for wide rims and +2 for narrow fronts.

Looks great. I've never seen these raced. Is it common to run wides up front? It makes it look very scale, very realistic.

Actually I dont know. I've never raced them either. In fact I havent even tested this one out yet. I purchased the wide front rims and the hardest wide PN tire I could (10 deg) for the front just for the appearance. I also purchased a set of +2 narrows for the front if I need less grip up front. I suspect that will be the case, and I will experiment with different compounds to find a good balance.

I built this one for a race we attend in Janauary every year. Thats the only place I've seen them raced. It looks pretty fun so I thought "what the heck" and went ahead and built it up. I spent more than I had planned but I really enjoy the building part as much as the racing part.

Thanks for the compliments.

wide all around is fun to drive... i've tried that waay back on a mr01...

it provides more traction and steering response, compared to +2 narrow fronts...

with +2 narrow fronts, you're bound to experience understeering after a while...

let us know if it still holds true for the 015

I thiknk that with the 102mm wheelbase, it might be too much front grip. You may want to try an LM 30d front tire on the Nascar wheel.

Little update on the setup. It worked out great with the narrow 15 PN fronts and 10 PN wide rears. Car was really easy to drive, which made it very fast. I liked the set up alot.

This is the result:

Where did you get the Mustang body? I've been looking all over but can't find any...
