    Budget Road Race/Street Sports Car

    Cleared up two things about building this.

    1 Body is a sheetmetal/fiberglass rectangular box.

    A box with a sloped down nose.A box with wheel well openings and cockpit opening.

    2 STOCK CAR front suspension components.

    Like Chevy front subframes they weld into tube frame chassis's.

    For the body search Can Am or USRRC.

    Late 70's and 80's. Ford Mustang GTP IMSA race car has that look also.

    Here is another example of body.Toyota Eagle.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eagle_MkIII

    Budget one can be made with 1" square steel tubing and sheet metal.

    The cockpit should be sheet metal enclosed.Firewall, sides and trunk/rollbar bulkhead.

    Should have wheel well tubs.

    Somewhere I made a post with 2 passenger race car chassis.

    They have A arm front and rear suspensions.Big tires.

    Couple of them are first class construction.

    I forget what kind of racing they were for.

    Maybe it was here when you could post pictures.
