    Class 1 rules question

    According to rules it has to have to be solid rails from front to back. I am using tube, will that be a problem? And does it even count if the original vehicle was a unibody?
    Obviously this pertains to my Brat build. I am using heave brake line as a tube frame rail. It will have two rails just like a standard chassis, but I also put in a "pan" since the original subes were unibody, I wondered if that would be a problem? Not that I would ever probably try to comp with it, but.....

    I wouldnt have a problem. I mean you are really just using round material instead of square or c channel. What are others thoughts?

    If that would be acceptable in class 1 would my class 3 be ok to run in class 2 if I put smaller tires on it?

    No, because the rules specifically mention solid frame rail running entire length. Your's is a tuber with breaks and welds. Different from what I am doing.

    ALthough I guess if I look real hard I can sort of tell one tube makes up the frame. Still not quite what I have going on there. I guess there has to be a way to tell the difference, but really mine would maybe more line up with CC01 rules since it's a unibody type design?

    i think the issue you will find with using just brakeline is the durability wont be there. you'll be bending and flexing out of square. i would have no issues with it myself, but you may in the long run. just sayin.

    sorry bud, tubers go in the "modified" class, aka class 3. no buggies like your rig are street legal, even lick - n - stick for that matter.

    "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered...I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies... The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs." -Thomas Jefferson
