    Hello All
    Thought I would show my newest project, bit of a vision I had for one so it is a prototype using ball joint front and swing rear. Learning the bend-tech software and using it for the individual layout of the tubes. Lots of bends in this one just the center frame section has 14 bends.

    Just a play car, wrong type of tubing and a little short on wheelbase to be a 9

    A little more progress, upgraded the prototype status to a keeper, swapped out front and rear torsion's to link pin and IRS, I have an 002 bus transmission and a 2007cc low compression engine I just built a couple months ago, trans might be a tad low geared for that engine though, might just use a beefed up beetle trans.

    I was wondering why you said ball joint and swing axle.

    Looking good.

    Yah it was just old junk laying around, I guess someday I will have to build something using the ball joint front end. A class 9 would be fun but to expensive keeping up with all the safety equipment

    Looks nice. Quick question... how much ft of tubing does a frame like that take?
