One tube at a time. Still have to connect the 3rd mount on the driver’s side.

Unbelievable work Franz!! Shaking my head at your incredible work! Be sure to take a lot of pictures as this build is certainly article worthy. I don’t get excited much, but this project is starting to get the heart racing. (in a good way!) Looking forward to next steps….Scott SainParticipantJuly 9, 2022 at 6:52 pmPost count: 387
Franz, my friend did one here. It is crazy. He can’t keep it from blowing the tires off. I’ll post some pics.

That’s what I hear. The S85 drive unit is supposed to be good for 380hp

I didn’t like the angle of the tube connectors on the 1” stuff that I addedd on Friday, so I cut them apart and rotated 9o degrees. I was able to un-bolt and re-bolt the rear sub frame section, so the design works. I want to add a couple more tubes around the corners.
Prep for the 3rd mount called for some 17mm x 10mm x 60mm bushings that will be recessed and welded into the tube.John JonesModeratorJuly 12, 2022 at 10:05 amPost count: 10420

Finished the side mount plate work, then bent and fit some 1” x .120” tube around the sides of the drive unit. I’ll drop some connectors on the corners of these tubes to make them sturdy.Audrey JonesModeratorJuly 14, 2022 at 6:57 amPost count: 1068
🥵 wow!!! Looks more and more sick everytime I look at it Franz!!!
Also yes – let’s make a reel 😁John JonesModeratorJuly 14, 2022 at 8:25 amPost count: 10420
I think when Franz has all his tubes and welding done he’ll be ok with video. Get it off the frame table… back on a pan dolly.. Then you can get around it to do something nice….
I think you start the reel with this picture I’m sure you can find it on the internet, I think Glenn might have put it there.. 😎
a few pics of the killer work..
The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎
