Yes thats true and when it gets done it will so be worth the wait!! Ours held water but we wanted it redone for the last 7 yrs, there just is so much to do and apparently landscaping (thats what we have left) is not cheap!

looks good, just a comment on the build of the upper cage. Please, please, please X the top (if not already done) and X the B pillars or gusset the A pillars on the inward bend. The hoop of a cage should follow the line of the car where it is the strongest. A welded cross member will be stronger than the bend in the tube, and since rollovers are the most common, and most violent (being a drastic change in inertial movement), it should carry the strongest line.

The top is X'd

We are not even close to done but I will pass your concerns to my head engineerhack

Could you please review this build up as well?



Thanks for you post, I think it looks good too

on a car, where you are fitting it into a enclosed area, a inward hoop is common, but look at all the X bracing in addition on that dragger. The 2nd B pillars are counter acting that bend. I'm not trying to tell you, you are doing it wrong. Far from it. It looks like a quality frame, and on a beam buggy, it's not critical, but take a look at any CLass 1 or TT, NONE of them have inward bends.
