 CLASS 3 BRONCO RACER BUILD-UP

One great thing about having us build your Race Bronco for you, we build in 8 years of active Bronco racing experience and testing into each one. What does that mean to you, You don't have to start racing using trial and error to test out new parts or new mounting locations. Saving you thousands and thousands of dollars and lots of time, making it easier to start winning races right out of the box, You can jump right in and start racing.

 

 
WHAT IS CLASS 3?

Class 3 is a PRODUCTION-Short Wheelbase 4x4 This class is not just Broncos, other vehicles with up to 108" wheel base maximum. Vehicles built from a 4-Wheel drive utility type vehicle, Vehicle must have been series produced in quantities of at least 5,000 units within a 12 month period & be readily available to the general public in the U.S.A. Must be a 4-Wheel drive vehicle capable of being driven through all four wheels No pickup trucks are allowed in this class.

PLEASE SEE THE GENERAL REGULATIONS IN THE OFFICAL SCORE RULE BOOK
Entrants in this class shall comply with all applicable general regulations.

COMPETITION REGULATIONS
Manufactures body, engine, & chassis combinations must be retained.
this class is an open production class & all components will be considered open unless restricted herein.

 

 
WHAT IS SCORE?

Score is a sanctioning body that puts on many races in the USA and Mexico like the Baja 1000, 500, and 250. We build all of our Broncos using their rules. They have the most stringent rules, if it is built to their rules then if you race other circuits like the SNORE Mint 400, Vegas to Reno or Parker 400, then you will be able to pass any TECH inspection.

CR48 CHASSIS and BODY

Manufactures body, engine, & chassis combinations must be retained.
this class is an open production class & all components will be considered open unless restricted herein

Stock production wheelbase may not be longer than 108" .
Wheelbase must retain +/- 2" as long as it does not exceed 108".(A stock 66-77 Bronco is 92")

Engine must be located in the stock mounting location as delivered from the manufacturer +/- 1 inch. This will be measured from the centerline of the front spindle to the back of the block. Engine height must remain stock +/- 1 inch as measured at the centerline of the crank.

 

 

We need to completely strip the frame in order to make all of the changes and to find all of the deep rust and cracks. We sand blast the frame and then cut all of the brackets off and grind out bad welds and slag. The stock frame is very strong but after 40+ years of rust and abuse it will usually need a little help before it can become the Back bone of a New class 3 racer.

THE ROLL CAGE
 

SCORE LOGO ROLL CAGE RULES FOR CLASS 3

CR33 ROLL CAGES

All vehicles in competition except Motorcycles & ATV's must be equipped with a roll cage. Minimum design & tubing size based on seamless 4130 chromoly tubing or ASTM 1018/1026 CDS/DOM.
No aluminum or other non-ferrous material permitted.
Material
Material for roll cage construction must be 4130 chromoly tubing or ASTM 1018/1026 CDS/DOM.
All welding must be of the highest quality with full penetration & no undercutting of the parent metal. All welds shall conform to the American Welding Society D1.1, Structural Welding Code,
Chapter 10, Tubular Structures & Standards for the material used ( see AWS.org ). It is strongly recommended that the welder inspect all welds using Magna flux, die-penetrate, or other effective methods.
All tubes must be welded 360-degrees around the circumference of the tube.
No oxyacetylene brazing or welding allowed. Good external appearance of a weld does not necessarily guarantee its quality, poor looking welds are never a sign good workmanship.
None of the tubing may show any signs of crimping or wall failure. All bends must be mandrel type. The center radius of the bends may not be less than (3) times the outside diameter of the roll cage tubing.
It must be emphasized that the use of heat-treated or high carbon steels may cause problems & that bad fabrication may result in a decrease in strength (caused by brittle heat-affected zones), inadequate ductility & internal stress

Roll Cage Tubing Sizes

For the purpose of determining roll bar tubing sizes, vehicle weight is as raced, but without driver. Note: There is an allowance of minus 0.005 inches on all tubing thick nesses. Minimum tubing size for the roll cage is:
3001 - 4000 LBS.
1.75" X .120" CDN/4130/Seamless or ASTM 1018/1026 CDS/DOM
Over 4000 lbs.
2.000" x 0.120" CDN/4130/Seamless or ASTM 1018/1026 CDS/DOM

 

 

 

The roll cage is designed to be SCORE legal. We wanted to use our production roll cage with some modifications but It would be a big deal to certify a new cage design. We run a basic ABC pillar design that some extra bars and lots of gussets that are required to make it SCORE legal. We tested this design in 2003 when Chuck rolled our racer 4 times off a mountain while racing the Baja 1000, we took 3rd place that year.
