Hi my name is Mike Willey 2019 will be my son David's first year in a legend in Bakersfield Ca at Kern County Raceway. He has been racing go karts here since he was 9with multiple track championships.We ran our first season of Bandos last year rounding out 4th overall at the track. He quickly out grew so we found a legend for next season. This site is a great resource since we are new to this. I'm sure I'll have lots of questions lol.thanks again.

Nice.
Hey if you need help/ advice I can have you talk to someone who will definitely give you good advice.
PM me if you want his name. He should be racing at kern pretty regularly

My advice would be listen to one person that runs up front or has run up front. If you try to "grab bag" a set up from different people you will have a car that is screwed up as nothing will work together. Its a package

Keep the car stable for him where it does nothing stupid and the speed will come.

Hi Mike,

As Robert pointed out; Try to find someone who races at the track(s) you plan to run. You will not have so much trial and error in your set up that way.

The car looks great! Love the wrap!


Best of luck to you and your son,


Steve

New to the forum, and new to legends. I am just starting out fresh. Starting my build this year and would love some input and assistance along the way. Any tips, tricks, or comments are welcomed. I will be doing a US Legends Spec car. I am definitely green to Legends. Grew up racing quads and dirt bikes.

Thanks and excited to chat.

Thank you for the introduction. Welcome to the world of legends cars and the LegendsRacer family!

I assume that you have purchased a used car and are rebuilding it? First things first... Read the rule book. As INEX legends cars are a spec class, it is most important to know what you can and cannot do to the car as you work on rebuilding. Here is a link to the current rule book:
 https://www.inexseries.com/become-a-member/rulebook/

Several questions... Which engine will you be using (Open FJ/XJ 1200, 1250 Sealed or new Sealed FZ09)? As I am assuming you have purchased an older car, Is everything current? Things like front spindles, tires, brakes, shocks... These are a few things that have changed over the years that may need to be replaced to meet current rules. What type of racing will you be doing? Dirt track, pavement or road course? This will help you determine how you will want to set up your car. Are your safety items current? Seat belts, fuel cell, helmet, etc... Don't skimp on safety gear!!! Where will you primarily race? This will be helpful to find members in your area or familiar with the track(s) you will race.

Best of luck to you!

Steve

New to legends trying to learn all I can. So I can make a smart purchase in the future. I have a lot to learn coming from flat karts.But haven't done that in awhile. This is going to be a family thing for me and my wife and children and grandchildren.

Welcome to the LegendsRacer family! Thank you for the introduction. I think you are going to enjoy these cars. The Legends and Bandolero folks are a pretty family oriented bunch of people. Read through the old posts and you will get a good idea as to what all is involved and what to look for when purchasing a used Bando or Legends car.

Let me know if I can help with you anything. Post whatever questions you may have. A ton of friendly folks here on the site!

Best of Luck to you in this adventure!

Steve
