Cobra are a deathtrap and the drivers know it . Do you think they are safe , or that the little hoops behind the headrests Save people's lives ? Anyway , that's besides the point for this build

The point I'm making is that for this build - in this thread - there is an easy solution to make the car far safer by using a thicker steel top support beam . Given the progress where there is full access to unbolt the aluminum part, it's at the perfect stage to make it stronger before it's too late

I've said my comments in the spirit of safety and constructive help and I'll leave it at that. I don't need this to devolve into a pissing contest

It's far more likely to crush at the windshield /A pillar area in an accident, than be a perfect 180 degree rollover situation where the rear rollbar behind the seats comes into play

If the entire windshield /a pillar area is crushed into the passenger compartment , it doesn't matter that the rear rollbar behind the seats is strong , the occupants are still dead.

I guess all cobra replica/OEM owners will never drive there cars again...

The frame has already a full width rollbar for occupant safety...you can filp the car upside down and it will not crush...

Like the crumple zones.
For the front , yes. The top support should be much thicker and in steel though for occupant protection

Very cool.........thanks for the detailed pictures, looks excellent. I see you are using wood to mock up future chassis connection points, won't that be a modification? Two questions come to mind. Aside from outright buying an assembled chassis, do you have any intentions of selling the chassis build plans? And if not, do you have any idea of turn around time, from ordering to delivery? I'm in Western Canada.

The chassis is made for an 80 inch wide car....so no modification needed....
Do not look at wheels on it they are not the correct offset
Like other kitcar you build your door reinforcement for side impact.

What kind of modifications will be necessary to strengthen the chassis when the wheels are extended outward?  What are your plans concerning side crash safety to occupants?

OK...Yes the chassis was develop for the Tomahawk, but very close to a stretch Fiero for a Lambo kit. So all the chassis dimension ( width, length and height ) fit under a lambo skin. NO MODIFICATION ON THE CHASSIS .
For sure you will have to fabricate  all the body support and body reinforcement, like you do normally on your build.
You can see on pics the roof fit right on top of the rear Firewall and Rollbar.

Ok, just so I'm clear on this, Dubuc that is not a custom aluminum chassis FOR the Aventador, but an aluminum chassis for the Tomahawk that you are trying to fit Inspire's body on? And that aluminum chassis sells for $5,000.00 Canadian, correct? Ok, I would be very interested to know how many modifications you wind up doing to get things aligned and connected. And what your overall impressions of the fitment are. Best of luck, looks like an extremely interesting Project.
