Just an observation but have you thought about making the rear brace more triangulated due to the distance the shoulder bolts are away from the cross bar, looks like the upper body could rotate if something unfortunate happened,

Yes it's powder.

..also noticed, with the seat forward, it looks like the door bar is no longer between the elbow and shoulder? (Maybe it's just the camera angle).


Nice work though.

Just saw the car very nice work. love watching the build. your daughter autumn and you have a very nice ride there. it was nice seeing her too. I think you can take the tape off the roll cage now. Lol and I see why the seat needs to be so far forward, boy she is a tiny thing! good luck and I wish you guys were able to run it this weekend, sure would like to have seen it run.

Thank you Keith! She was so excited today she drove straight to Jim Marshall and Terry Nagel's pit to see them, We are glad to have it at the track today even if only to have it checked by the tech crew. Just didn't think our best option was to go making full passes right off the bat. A few more things to do but WOW what a ride. I can't thank everyone enough, more on that later.

Was nice to meet you and Autumn at the Rock. The car is flawless, I'll bet she can't wait to compete in it. Congrats on her win in the Juniors.

It is in fact a race-able piece, however, she needs a pad added to the roll cage bar to the left of her head, rear firewall needs sealed and they were concerned with the seat being so high we may need to add more bracing at the top.

Tech thought along these lines, more so in the event of a backward crash, say into the wall, the top of the seat would need more support.
