So… I came into a Birel CR832 (1999) with working 4wb, for the princely sum of $300… I also have acquired a freshly replated Rotax 257 (250cc) that just needs a piston / wristpin / bearing installed to be a runner, also for $300. Net result – with a little cleaning and restoring, I’ll have a $750 road racing setup. WKA has already issued me a provisional Unlimited license.
My question: has anyone here run one of these chassis, know what it likes, etc? I plan to remove as much caster and camber as possible due to the RR intent… And I’ll be fabbing up some custom bodywork too. (Think Shadow UoP CanAm…)
Input appreciated. I’ll be posting here as I progress. Time to strip it down and check for cracks and straightness (though I expect it’s fine on both counts.)
