Chassis Design Version 2



In this video I go over the changes I made to the original chassis design and I show some other renderings I have made for the chassis.

    Are you building a new Baja or just rebuilding a new frame?

    What do you think it will cost to fabricate in materials?

    Hi doug, looks good but i think you need to triangulate the main hoop, if in a side roll/impact, the higher the impact the easier the hoop will move closer to you or your passenger and case a injury….. maybe????

    Some random comments. I've heard that the top bar height should be about 2 to 4" above driver helmet level. Also, some things to think about is the center of gravity. I would calculate based on airplane mathematics. Engine weight, cabin weight, frame weight etc. Not sure where the sweet spot exists, but I'm certain there is a precise position on a McLaren GTR etc. I'm not a car design engineer, but I would explore this math. Also, keeping the cabin dry is a complaint on all these rail buggies. May want to try to keep surfaces flat to put a top, side panels etc to keep you dry inside. Even Ariel owners complain about water ingress in their 100k buggies.

    Can you lower the radiator in that area or can you put it in the front I also changed my motor to the supercharged Ecotec it's a lot whiner on passenger side other than that look real good

    I have to say all these videos your putting out are great to watch. Not sure if you already have plans for your old chassis but I may be interested in purchasing it from you if you decide to sale it. I live in Castle Rock CO. And I have a very similar project. Keep up the the great work and will talk to you soon.

    I recommend welding like a cross inside for support, like behind where the seat is going to be

    Doug,

    I like your idea of building a table in the same shape as the bottom of the chassis. If I understand your design, the bottom of the chassis is flat except the nose section. So why not take your build table idea one step further to save some cost and work? In other words, skip the build table all together. Start by building the chassis bottom (without the nose) and add some temporary legs under it to elevate and level it. When done building the chassis, just cut off the tempoary legs.
