    LOL,
    My very first set of upper arms for my first ground up build we’re great. All three sets of them (was used to wadding Pilot arms whilst racing) so I was making spares to have in stock.
    Looked good, fully welded, ready to bolt on. Yeah!

    Then I tried fitting a pair and they hit the shocks. Was a very minor fix and if I had tacked, it would have been an easy correction. Lesson learned. Tack, tack, tack.

    I got some 1.5” tube to fit inside the 1.75” tube so I can butt join and plug weld the mid frame together. Is there any rule of thumb for how long the 1.5” tube should go onto the 1.75” tube. 3” on each side?

    My stub tooobing joints (too many in the Mini...) are only 3” long overall. Once welded fully it thinks it’s one piece of tubing again anyhow.
