FAST!!!! I need a measurement! ASCOT/BBT Sprint Cage

Post by Eau Rouge »

I need a measurement of either a BBT or ASCOT sprint car cage at the top of the driver's area main roll halo, from edge to edge. Anyone that can help, it would surely be appreciated. I have one at home, but that doesn't help me here at the office...


QUICK!

at the widest point, since those bars are curved, is 3 9/16". the cage behind the driver, where it comes up from the chassis is 3 3/4".

hope that helps.

Welp, that's why I asked.

Like a tetnus shot, a little pain at the beginning will always make you better off at the end. :)

On a positive note, 3 9/16" is complaint for the front half of the car.

It would just take 3/16" to make the rear compliant :wink:

Half compliant is more than some cars from what I have read :lol:

There are some sprint cars out there now that are ridiculously wide, and it's just silly looking. I had nothing to do with the rule, and I would have personally made it 3.750", but it's not my call. There was a good reason and a valid system used to create that dimension, so I'll leave it at that.

My favorites will always be the original ASCOT RC10s. :D

I always enjoyed the look of the non-downtube cars as well. JJ Yeley drove a midget at the chili bowl that was non-downtube and they still look cool now!

P.S. EDM bodies do need to look more scale
