Do people really use Chromoly in competition or trail useage? My uncle and I were sitting around discussing my thoughts on a tube buggy and he made some good points on Chromoly. His son races a Dirt Modified car and we were sitting around the car. I noted it would make a nice single seat buggy with some modification, too bad its chromoly. He informed me I was wrong on that. Its just DOM steel tubing. For a while chassises were produced from Chromo but they found it was far too stiff. From normal stresses and taking hits the frame wouldn't give but rather just break. Cousin gave an example of a friend of theirs leading a race by a good distance, tapped an inside corner tire and instead of just bending the axle, it sheered the damn thing right off at the knuckle. Well he was coming out of turn 4 on the last lap, he could have limped across the line with a bent axle, but the sheared off one, sent him into the infield spinning and cost him the race. Now wouldn't this same stuff apply to us?
