I may have just bought a 2003 Phantom Nemesis Champions Edition offset chassis with a moon motor and a bully clutch. It was set up for paved oval, but I will be running it on the dirt. I understand there is a slight difference in the offset of one of the wheels and the tires can't be used on the dirt, but that it's not much different otherwise. So it's official, I'm a redneck nascar wanna be!

My man!!

Hell yeah, I used to race dirt karts. Amelia Motor Raceway isn't far from where you are now. You've bought the best equipment you can get. Bully clutches are about the best out, Phantom make the best kart out, and Rohn Moon builds a hell of a motor. You'll need a couple of new wheels (offset and width are different on LR, or used to be about 4 years ago) and some new dirt tires to mount up, but other than that you're golden!! I raced at a national level for a few years but mostly VA and PA state races. If you need some set-up help let me know. I also know a lot of guys in and around the Richmond area that you may want to contact for some good help. There is a lot to those things, but probably the most fun I've had racing anything 4 wheels. Good luck!!

Also, Phantom has a couple of videos that are priceless for a new racer. I'd suggest looking into those. If I can find mine, I'll send them to you. I used to have 2-3 that Phantom released. Now I think there are half a dozen or more. Let me know if I can help.

Hey! Cool! James, I'll definitely take any setup advice you can give me. I have a good friend in the area that has been doing this for a while (racing at Amelia mostly), but he's using a local chassis (R&R), and isn't all that familiar with setting up a Phantom chasis. We will be doing some experimenting this week. He has a nice set of scales and all the high dollar laser toe, caster, camber tools so set-up should be fairly easy once I know what the numbers should be. I was told that I only need to change the LR wheel, but I'm not entirely convinced that the guy knows for sure whether the offsets on the remaining wheels are different. I've been trying to find some info on the internet, but if you know the correct wheel sizes and offset for dirt oval, that would be very helpful. And I am having one new set of tires cut for me for now, but know that I will need many more. I'll definitely look into the videos too.

Let me know if you know anywhere to pick up good deals on wheels/tires.
