Very interesting with the lexan chassis. Is it rigid or somewhat flexible?

Its very strong and depending how thick it is, is very flexible.I machine it to between 1mm=1.5mm thick.
Hard to machine thinner as it starts to melt.I use compressed air to keep it cool while machining.

Looking really nice, looks like a lot of work you did..... Could not imagine how many hours it took to make the chassis and pod. Thanks for the pictures :text-bravo:

This one is ready to go. It is Eldon's version of the Porsche 906 using a 3D universal chassis.

Yebo and Mitch, great work! Looking forward to seeing the lean chassis run and EVERYONE loves a 906. Would you happen to have a shot of the underside?
