    Default “LXT” Mastersbilt

    Just bought one of these LXT cars, anyone have any experience with one? What’s the differences between them and the other cars If any?

    If I remember correctly, it's basically a Huey from Crothersville. Bar lengths in back are smackdown, front is gen x. One of the smack conversions we have, they added lxt to the original serial number when the gen x front was added.

    Also. The right side frame rails are raised 1" higher than the MBH cars.

    Thanks for the reply’s. We’ll be running it as a crate. Just had ppm go through a set of ohlins piggybacks for it. We’ll see what happens.

    Having had both a Gen-X and Smackdown, I always thought one of these would be a great choice if getting a third MasterSbilt. I liked the Gen-X front end better and the Smackdown rear seemed to suit either my driving style, or the tracks I ran, better.

    Good luck!

    I like them. Been running the same cars since like 2013, so I know them pretty well. Both have had surgery since then, but just to upgrade stuff. Both started out as smack. Both have had each end stiffened and gen x fronts put on. One is square and one is round, but they can't seem to tell the difference.

    LOL.....people scoffed when Epj told me, he couldnt tell the difference either! I believe that was in 06 when he won the world!

    People make too big a deal out of tiny changes to chassis and say this makes one good and one bad. If it has enough stiffness to start, they will be pretty much the same if you make everything else the same. That's the part most people screw up on and don't realize it.

    I'm not afraid to admit, I always gravitated towards a square tube chassis because I figured it'd be easier to fix if I bent her a little (less time cutting out the old, notching, etc). I never considered what differences in performance there might have been (and doubt a driver of my caliber would ever feel any regardless).

    Before the frames got stiffer in the last 5 to 6 years, 2 cars identical but one being 2" square vs 1.75 or even 2" round: The square tube cars seem on average to be looser in and tighter off and vice versa with the round tube.

    Note: talking cars in general not a particular brand like a masters
