Im thinking of taking on another altered project since mine is nearly complete and I have been having second thoughts on my frame set up. My current frame is fabbed of 2" by 3" by .083 rectangular tube. My cage was going to tie into the front frame rails to give it the strength and rigidity it needed to compensate for the thin wall sq tubing. I have very little invested in my current frame and am considering starting over with all 1 5/8" .125 mild steel tubing for the complete frame and cage. 2 reasons= #1 it will be lighter than my current plans, #2 I really love the look of those '60s fuel altereds with their tube chassis. This '27 truck altered was built for 1/8th mile use only and will never break 6.00 ET however alot of the altereds I see have 110"+ wheelbase and a giant mess of tubing making up their chassis. I want a very simple frame that doesnt sit 2 feet tall and require 350 feet of bar to build, I want something more like a '60s altered would have. My question is this, where can I get info on making this IHRA legal? And is there a problem with a very simple frame design on a 6.50ET 1/8th mile car????????
