Look for some of the extruded aluminum they use in windows. Get yourself a section of that. Its a little heavy compared to the kit cars but its a C section which will give you some strength. The guy that runs the races in San Antonio has built up some econo rails. You might want to talk to him about getting your car going. www.sadragracing.com Look around for the race directors e-mail. I kinda like the little pink one myself. I think I've seen that car before If you can find a place that installs aluminum windows you can usually talk them out of enough of the aluminum to make several chassis for nothing. Its thinner than the angle stuff but still stiff.
