Jimco Builds State of the Art Class 10 car that’s badass

October 26, 2015

“What would it take for me to build one of these cars?”

It’s a question we get quite often at Jimco Racing.  At the end of this email, you will find a chart with all of the different specs and components we used to build this Class 10 car for AFR Racing  out of Mexicali, CA.

75% of the parts we used are readily available at the Jimco Parts store.  Of course, you’d also have to hire your own crew of fabricators, buy some TIG welding equipment and find somebody with 40 years of experience in building off road race cars to guide you on what’s possible and what’s impossible.    And in this case, you’d need to splurge a little to get the carbon fiber body and advanced electronics.
