    I just had to run back to my shop (my buddy that works there left his keys inside - got home, realized he had to come all the way back - doh!) and I was asked about the dimensions of my cars.

    #2 is sitting on its tail pointing towards the ceiling (working on installing the belly pan Dzus tabs) and I took some quick measurements:
    OAL - 96" *That's from the tip of the front bumper to rear end of the chassis
    OAW 66" - this is the front end - it appears to be about 2" wider than the rear end - and this is at full droop. *I'm not sure what the OAL of the front end is at ride height - I'll check on the Turn-Key car tomorrow.
    Wheelbase is 65"

    Is there a finalized size of tubing, an overall length and overall width for the stadium lite series?

    Everyone threw in info, but nobody could agree.

    So, here it is - I'll make a stand for it! *[smilie=blowkiss.gif]

    1.125 x .083 for the main cage minimum. *This is more than acceptable for a vehicle this size. - I proved that with the Deztaz and my Snowflake crash - bigger, heavier and it came though just fine.


    1000 lbs max weight.
    Max width 70"
    Max wheel base 90"
    Max OAL 120"

    Max engine size - 1000cc. *I don't care what type, style hp. 1000cc *We'll arrange classes accordingly.

    Wheels - open to what ever is wanted to be used. *ATV, DOT. *Rims - 10" through 15".


    Hows that? * *

    sounds good but I think you mean 1.250 x .083

    I agree with those specs & second the motion,,,,
    The sizes fit alot of buggies already being made, and are being raced. *
    Leaves plenty of room for more to get to the *track
    Lets take this decision & get to work on some race buggies. [smilie=icon_bolt.gif]

    Why soytenly! *Nuck, nuck, nuck. *.75x.049 (20mmx 1.25mm) chromoly, .063 (1.6mm) mild for triangulation will be allowed too.

    I was quite specific in saying 1-1/8" (30mm) tubing. *There are cars out there that would do just fine in tech that are inch-and-un-eight. *This sort of plays catch all with the Pilots too.

    Obviously I believe that 1.250 (32mm) would be better, but 1.125" will suffice in a car under 1000 lbs. (454kg) - I'm trying Rorty! *

    The farther I get into the Gen IV car that I'm doing the engine transplant in the more I'm amazed at some of the particulars of the car. *Cross bracing is all .75 x .049 and can be a tad tricky to weld to with too much heat. *Huh? *Burn through? *WTF? * * *Wow, that's thin.

    I know why the whole thing's been TIG welded now. *MIG tends to make nice little holes in the tubes. *[smilie=banghead.gif] *I need to step down on wire size so I can turn the heat down and not have to worry about burning through so easily. (but that doesn't mean I will - just need to practice more TIG!)

    A lot of the car's main structure is 1.25 x .063. *

    It's all chromoly and very well braced. *I'd not be afraid of a tumble in the thing.

    I really like the way this is going. We will be delving in this style mini real soon, we already have enough parts for one single seater, and plans are to keep the momentum up and do a fleet, we're going to *start the baja stadium lite division!
