Default how much tube

hi, can anyone tell me how much of each section tubing it takes to build the chassis, also i am still considering giving myself a bit more room for my rv8 by making it abit wider and obviously a larger tunnel for my r380 box, do any the makers of flatpacks cater for non standard biulds

If memory serves I remember handyandy saying on a post that it takes 34 metres of 25mm box and 18 metres of the 20mm box to build the standard spec chassis hope what helps

Speak to ANdy, if you tell him the dimmensions of the gearbox he can work to that. Chances are the chassis mods for the MT75 gearbox will be fine for yours but check the width to make sure and speak to Andy.

I'm possibly looking at a wider chassis so am interested in the reply, I'm using a BMW V8 but havent got round to measuring up yet.
