Frequently Asked Questions
How do you build one of these?
Take a look at some of the build videos (below) and see for yourself. A mini-series was prepared when the series was launched to help prospective competitors see how it’s done!
How much does a vehicle cost?
The cheapest car in the series is valued at approximately $500. The most expensive car is valued at just over $2,000. The 2011 championship car was valued at about $1,000. How cost-effective your build will be will depend on what shape your car is in (ie. if the brake lines are gone, they cost money to replace), how much spare equipment you have, and how good your fabrication skills are. As the division matures, used cars are beginning to become available.
How many Bone Stock Chaos Cars are there?
When the new Bone Stock format was introduced 30 drivers arrived to compete in their first event, the Oct 15, 2011 Pumpkin Smasher.
Do Bone Stock Chaos drivers get paid?
Yes. The Bone Stocks do have a payout system introduced at the end of 2009.
Are there plans to remove the obstacles from the Bone Stock Chaos Cars? *UPDATED*
The original obstacles that were used by the Chaos Car series when it began in 2007 are not used at this time. The series has switched to what is called the “1990′s Enduro Rules”. While obstacles are not preset on the speedway, vehicles which become too damaged to continue are left on the track (the race is stopped to allow the driver to exit the car). The rulebook does allow for obstacle cars to be pre-placed on the track along with a number of other provisions for speed control but the series will be running the full-speedway course for the foreseeable future.
