What wheel size
« on: March 14, 2018, 09:53:51 PM »
Hello, I am looking for advice on what wheel size I should be considering befor I order my E.C. font axle kit. I am building to race under uslmra rules. I would like to build a chassis that could move up to sp or bp class. What role dose wheel diameter play in setting up a tight racer?

You will be running 6" diameter wheels no matter what and most likely 13x6.5x6 tires on front.
I suggest run at least a 7"wide rim,I prefer 8.5" wide myself

Ok, so are the E.C. front axle kits design for different width, rather than diameter?

They are for different widths. Have you contacted Slacker Chassis? They sell EC style prepared axles for a decent chunk less than EC.
