Arrow Phat Bodies Chunk owners?

Well after a long search I am about to step into the realms of owning and running the Phat Bodies Chunk. I am a great fan of mid-motor conversions in 2wd 1/10 so as I am racing mini/micro at present, thought it perfectly logical to grab this tiny monster to thrash indoors through the winter months.

I am aware of some info regarding running experiences, set-up etc over on UkMicrox, but would like to make contact with other Chunk owners who may be able to share some set-up tips etc.

I have spoken with the guys over at Phat Bodies who are very helpful...so, anybody running the 2wd side of Microx drop me a line please.

Can not wait to run the buggy

I had one for the back end of the Micro Nationals last year, even won the last one at Ardent withh it. Fantastic car, I only sold mine on to concentrate on the 1/16th 4wd series at the Nationals.

You going to come along to a few? Telford, Dudley and Hereford all have one so it's not to far!

Thanks for posting good to hear another driver rate the chunk, all I hear is good reports. I'll be down at Telford and Dudley this year so may catch up then.

Looking forward to 2 nationals right on our doorstep

Thanks for feedback, wonder how many 2wd will be at the Nats this year?..I know a lot have switched to concentrate on 4wd with Carisma platform etc....Looking forward to running it as I'm a massive fan of the small British conversion manufacturers these days...Mr Speedy is super helpful with support as stated, seems most owners or ex owners are suggesting that the set up on his build thread is the best starting point.

Aviiit lol

2wd class is proving to be more popular than last year so far.
