Chassis Design

Made from 1/8in 6061 aluminum rectangular tubing, this welded chassis design allows for a light weight, high stiffness, and relatively low cost compared to composite alternatives. It supports the suspension rockers in double shear, and also houses all electronic components. For protection against the elements the chassis tubes will be covered in Mylar and polycarbonate, light non-structural material that will keep out most dust and water.
