New from Plan B Racing:
New Mach 1 Sprint Car Builder Kit
The Mach 1 is our new sprint platform that has been in development since the Chili Bowl.
On this kit we have moved away from the "buggy conversion" platform and on to a more purpose built platform. With the buggy based platform we had to make certain compromises in order to utilize parts from the current crop of donor buggies, which limited what we could do. That coupled with the constant updates and changes having to be made to keep up with new versions of those buggies being released constantly made the change necessary to build the best sprint car we could. No more compromises, we built it the way we wanted it built!!
Many of the features speak for themselves, with the most notable features being on the front of the car. Machined aluminum adjustable caster blocks, kick up blocks, camber mounts,replaceable droop pads, bellcrank mount, and bellcrank steering assembly. Machined delrin front arms, and front spindles.
The rear of the car has been optimized for better grip and stability with new geometry. The rear includes machined aluminum rear hubs, "c" and "d" blocks, and rear bulkhead. Machined delrin rear adjustable arms, and our new modular transmission mounting system. This will allow the mounting of multiple trans configurations on the same chassis.
Another new feature for us is the car will be offered with either a carbon fiber chassis or a 7075-T6 aluminum chassis.
This will come only as a "builder kit" that will include all of the parts we make, and a list of recommended parts to complete.
Pricing starts at $400.
