    An 1100 cc powered car with as short a wheelbase as a Legends can be dangerously fast and squirrely for a young inexperienced driver let alone an experienced adult. IMHO

    VERY GOOD !!
    That would be a real cool car to run brackets with if your track permitted it. I'd check with them first before building it . IMHO

    Have fun !! I can foresee more Legends, Bandelero's, and such working their way onto the strips across the country. Even if limited to 1/8 mile and run with the Jr rails....

    Don't know much about Legends cars, but i would venture to say "slow down the steering". And don't burnout across the starting lines.

    I agree on slowing the steering down !
    Dial all the positive caster in that you can for high speed stability.
