Several people have written questioning whether the upper chassis is following SCCA and NASA rules; specifically, how the roof tubes cross instead of running parallel to the centerline of the chassis. I don’t think I’ve broken the rules but would appreciate input if you feel otherwise, especially if pertanent rules can be quoted. The reason the roof tubes cross is to make it easy to get in and out. I really don’t want a true boxed-in cage, where getting in and out resembles an old episode of “Dukes of Hazzard”, never mind having a girl get in wearing a dress! I noticed with disappointed amusement that NASA, like the SCCA, allows using 1.375″ OD “unobtainium” tubing.

So let me know; it’s trivial to correct now; much tougher later on, never mind the liability of having a bunch of books in circulation saying to do it wrong…
