One last thing,  Make sure if you if you order a clip to get them to send the braces that aren't on the clip.  It wasn't too bad replacing them but it would be alot easier and quicker if they came with the clip.  The picture shows the bars I am talking about.

I know where I'm taking my bando after a wreck. NIXON'S FRAME SHOP.

I bet I could do it in a couple hours now!!  I figure this won't be the last time I will be doing one of mine since my youngest will be in one for at least 4 years,  I just hope this is the last time this year!!

This should be my final post on this.  I got everything back on it and all I have left is to scale the car and set the front end,YEAH!!!  I checked everything and it all came out nice and squared up.  The rear end is in good alignment with the front so this is definately a job most of us can do,  so we can spend our money on other things. 

I ended up spending around $900 on this repair but I had to get a bunch of things.  I had to get the clip($300) 2 shocks, 1 axle, 2 sprocket holders, 1 rotor, 1 panhard bar, 8 heims, 2 trailing arms, 1 rear sprocket, 1 left hand bearing carrier and I think that was it!!

I'm sure you were glad they canceled the race last week. Do you think the tech guys at the track have to approve the repairs?

I could have had the car ready for last week if I had to but I had alot of stuff I needed to throught at the late model so the off week was perfect.  I wouldn't think I would have to get approval since it is just like it was before and all the parts were from 600 racing but,  I think I will run it through tech first though.

I would let the tech guys look at it first. And if they say ok . Then they can't come back afterwards saying something different.

Not entirely true! I love this little blurb from the rulebook:

"No equipment or racecar will be considered as having
been approved by reason of having passed through inspection
“unobserved.” Regardless of a Bandolero Car passing prior
inspections, compliance with all rules must be made at each
post-race inspection."

Granted, I think it wise to have the car inspected prior to entering a race. Let them know that you have re-clipped the car, and that you want to make sure it is within legal specs. Just a CYOA thing.

Just my 2 cents for what it's worth.

Wish I had found this post before I made the front snout for my bando, was hell trying to find the right metals.  Also found these on the 600 website.

I am working on a step by step for doing the front clip (snout). I posted picks with some captions on my Facebook. Here is the link. Think you have to have a FB account to see it.

I will try to get the step by step up as soon as I can. Anyone has any questions, please feel free to contact me.
