To avoid any possible confusion, the CKGB specification can be found in the 'Start here' section of the forum or by following this link:

yea, this is a bit confusing... the numbers here are different to the existing spec rules. max track width of 1000mm not 965mm (although measured from a different place, so they equate to roughly the same), and max wheelbase of 1800mm not 1676mm.

I would add that the 'Builders Guide' referred to above is a document put together by one of our members which contains lots of very useful information for a builder but it is a guide and should not be interpreted as a rule book.  As noted in my previous post, for the current rules/specifications refer to the 'Start Here' section of this forum.

Chris, without your link I was not aware there was a rules section. Not the easiest thing to find, or is that just me ?
Not trying to rewrite the rules just making it easier to find.
Take my post down if needed.

I agree, it could be easier to find!
