Kent Clausen quick change chassis

Post by hugger19 »

info from Kent himself. was able to get the chassis direct from him how cool is that!!!

Kent Clausen
It was an enduro car, I probably raced it at the Thunderdrome and Whippoorwill. At AE we made a few custom quick change cars, then went to the Bolink system because it was the best.

I don’t think I ever used the Composite Craft ones. Mostly because the Bolink one used the AE battery boxes for a factory look. It would have looked like this Pontiac, with LAVco stickers.

I think I used a Fiberglas rear brace because the previous battery holder had different contact locations and I didn’t want graphite to cause a short circuit.
