    I got the subframe built today. I am going to finish it off with a piece of diamond plate aluminum to form a skid plate.

    Only see the front mount and that seems low. Are you planning to have the height difference that is common on Kalich-type leaners?

    The 4130 tube will make a dam strong yet still be light..

    As for the sidcar wheel steer... On mine I have the front
    mount 100mm higher than the rear with 100mm of lead
    on the car wheel..
    The bigger the diffrent's in the mount point hight , the
    more lead you can run on the side car wheel..

    I got enough tube for four cars at a price of 86.00. What a steal. I gave home a 100 and said keep the change so I didn't feel guilty .
