Its an Alteres drag chassis that i built to ANDRA specs, Its not completly finished and im not sure what motor or drivetrain will go in but i just wanted to prove to myself that i could build a tube chassis from scratch.

 

It took me around 3-4 hours and im already looking forward to my next chassis.

Well to be honest i did have a 1/24 John force funny car sitting on my bench aswell as the ANDRA rule book while i built it. Once you get started you can breaze through it.

Three to four hours? Really? That's an all day project for me. Impressive.

I haven't decided what motor but I have an idea that is a bit different than normal...

Very nicely done, Matthew.  I'm trying to muster up the courage to build a scratchbuild chassis myself, but I will probably be closer to 109", something old school.

Really nice chassis work. What heat source did you use for the bends? Looks like the old match/lighter/candle trick. do you need to add any more cross members to the upper rails or will the motor mounts take care of that? Everything is nice and parallel, did you draw a plan or use graph paper to line things up? A chassis is a week long project for me.

OOPs Just noticed that this is a January thread. Nice work anyway.
