Are you building a new truck ?
TECHNICALLY, a class 8 wheelbase is mandated by the class rules.
Trophy Truck rules on this subject are open
we are going to be building a truck. we have to get our 10 car's new engine and trans done then we will be looking for a frame. as far as the mandate +/- 1" rule this changes from short to long wheel base does it not or have they set a specific wheel base for all 8's
I think the desert would race Chuck Norris.....Check out this thread: http://www.race-dezert.com/forum/showthread.php?t=27777
And as I mentioned in the thread, The Truggy has a 125" wheelbase, no other reasoning should be needed to choose 125"
If Chuck Norris raced off road, he would drive The Truggy
