ive been watching some of the builds on landracing and other sites and i dont like some things that i see---butt welds in structural areas arent safe-----im going to show everyone a good safe way to join tube together ---there are many ways to do this but this is an easy way and only requires a drill ----a good rule of thumb is to make the length of the inside  sleeve at least 4 times the dia. ---the inside tube that i used is 1 1/4  o. d.--the length is 6 inches --drill 3 holes through the outside tubes  (through both sides )  i like 1/4 inch holes---slide the tubes together and weld---weld the rosettes first and make sure you weld to the inside tube ---then weld up the butt ---some racing bodies dont allow grinding of the welds so check with yours before you do --------------------------
