I was wondering what type of dimension ranges are most teams building

rear track width?


Front Track width?

Wheelbase?

I was just wanting rough dimensions, to have a ballpark idea.

Thanks

Most teams make their buggy as wide as the rules allow. There is no reason not to, as a wider buggy is more stable and can take corners better than a narrower one. The only slight disadvantage would be in tight woods, just have to be a little more careful around trees.

Usually front track width is slightly wider than the rear, due to tire size differences, and having a slightly narrower rear track helps in turning with a locked rear axle.

Wheelbase, shorter is also better for turning with a locked rear axle. I would say around 60" is a good number.
