Hi All

Could some of you more experienced vehicle builders give a few tips please.

I am looking around for a Countach kit car and was wondering what the advantages or disadvantages are between Tube vs Box, as far as the whole kit goes.

My understanding from an engineering point of view is that tubular is stronger but is it that much stronger.

Cosmetically, does the vehicle look better (or finish better) with one particular chassis style.

Thanks all for any input you can provide as it will be most valuable to me.

Regards

Paul

Charley Strickland has developed an aluminum chassis for his Chupacabra which is Countach inspired. see https://www.facebook.com/groups/charleyschupacabra/

square is a lot easier to finish, but here is the technical explanation if you are so inclined to read it

Thanks Dale, I have talked to him some time ago. TWC, where did you find a Countach chassis kit of any kind, let alone enough of them to have a choice?
