It is designed for shifter, but any front brake application would apply. C stands for 10 degree spindles and front brakes. The V was a special model that had a narrower front end compared to the production model Z. It was the chassis of choice in 2002 and Nick Bussel campaigned the chassis with great success.

Should be a good choice if you need the front brakes.

Garry thanks for the info. could i take the front brakes off of this if they are not allowed? i will be running yamaha kt100 pipe heavy class at new castle.

It is not a problem to remove front brakes.. But I will say a two cycle works better with 12 degree spindles, thus the application with a 10 degree spindle will be difficult.

I have a CR32-Z that I'm going to use for TAG. I've read elsewhere on this forum that you can increase the caster (do you mean caster or camber?) by the use of pills back to 12 degrees.

The number 10 or twelve specifies camber. Shifter chassis have 10 degree spindles. Yes you can remove the front brakes and put 10 degree 100cc spindles on. If you remove the 10degree shifter spindles and put 12 degree 100cc spindes on, you end up with 2 degree of positive camber (on the tape measure it's around 15mm). Hope this helps.

Can't I just remove the brakes and use the 10 degree spindles that are on the kart? Why would I need to put on 100 cc spindles?

You can do as you describe. For the 100cc application, the 12 degree is the best peformance. But you can do as you requested.
