Hey everyone, I have been looking into getting a class 9 car to race in some events next year could you guys tell me if this is a class 9, it has a 1500 vw motor
Just looking at it quickly.So what are the differences between this and a 9, would I be better off going class 11?
or class 11, you can make your racing debut at koh( is 11 cls ball joint only too?Just looking at it quickly.
1. It’s a sand rail chassis someone tried to strengthen up by adding bars too. It was never built to be strong enough to race.
2. The front beam is link pin. Class 9 is ball joint only. Front end has to be cut off and redone.
3. It has a spun aluminum tank in it. Has to have a fuel cell to race.
4. Those seats will wreck your back in a 9 car. Need to be replaced with a real racing style seat so you don’t have to be cut out of those seats after the race.
5.Class 9 is only allowed 1 shock per wheel, so the rear needs to be re-done as well.
For the amount of money you dump into that car, you could build a purpose built 9 car from the ground up. You will spend more in fab work replacing the cage than it would cost to build a brand new chassis. Your best option is to buy a used 9 car. The best bang for the buck in offroad racing. Also the roughest tide in offroad racing too just as a heads up.
