    The quality of the fabrication work looks quite good, but the design itself has some pretty serious looking flaws..... /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    I was just going to leave it at that..... /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    I see some "issues" in areas that I've already confronted in my own designs, but not knowing what the design criteria were, it's not fair to say they've chosen poorly (or well). From what I can tell, this is something that was "built for a customer".... so the constraints were defined by someone else besides the builder.

    The only point I wanted to make was that it's an interesting example, but probably not something I'd want to model my own vehicle after.




    BTW -> I did spend a lot of time looking at the Grady's 1st Gen, and there is a lot to see there. They were willing to forgo a lot of interior creature comforts, so their design was able to get a lot more crazy (and interesting, IMHO). Still not something I'd want to copy......because MY criteria are unique to me, and it's more fun to solve your own problems, than to copy someone else. /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    Are you looking at the front suspension when you say that? Looks like it could do some good twisting on the frame. Maybe they plan on running a connector after the engine is installed.
