Trent, did you notice the fire bottle set up like I told you was a good idea when there is a space problem, BTW, in alll of my years I have never seen a frame failure in this area. Seen engines come out but no frame seperation.

Yes, noted on the bottles.

Hi Tman,
Good question. Hope you don't mind my long answer.
I am not sure if other chassis builders agree with the way I did this but, there is a good reason why I built it this way. In my opinion your doing great by thinking ahead incase of an event. You definitely have the right idea.
Take a look. You will notice a slight bend at each of the top rear compression frame rails just befor the tie in to those corner uprights. This bend provides a "weak" link. I perfer to call it a hinge.  This type of connection, by design, creates an area for deformation when subjected to high compression or tension forces. (Dynamic Energy Release) Hopefully diverting this energy from the driver.


Makes sense, thanks for your answer!

I thought all tubes in the driver area must be at least 1-5/8" in diameter. Looks like some tubes are smaller or is this just an illusion as the other bars 1-3/4?

It looks to me that they washed the driveway just before he took that frame shot.

Attention to detail to the MAX.

We dropped the liner off at Advanced Metal Works this morning. They will be working on the aluminum the rear body section. We will try to get some progress photos.

Rear bearing carriers are almost finished. Still need to machine the rear wheel hubs, sprocket and break rotor hubs. I am sure looking forward to getting this thing on wheels. :cheers:

I stopped by Advanced Metal Works this afternoon and found the rear upper body panels are starting to take shape.

Beautiful work and good luck to you. But how come the NACA ducts are facing backwards?
