Default HPI Customs : Chevelle Frames and projects

We recently started a whole bunch of chevelles. The count is up to two 67 chevelles and 3 70's!

For two of the 70 chevelles, we are using stock chassis with Speedtech Road Assault Suspension packages. On top of that, we developed a k-member system that we are now installing in all our customers chevelles that aren't getting a custom frame, and even using a tweaked version for our custom frames! It consists of :
a tubular k brace
frame boxing
total front-to-back factory seam re weld
Body mount reinforcement and billet body mount set
exhaust/driveshaft crossmember
trans mount system.

Our trans mount is slotted to accept LS/SBC/BBC with any GM auto, t56, t5, or tko trans!

We integrate exhaust hanger holes into the crossmembers and then use our laser cut stainless tabs and rubber grommets to isolate the exhaust.

This is a 70 chevelle that we are doing a bit more "drag race". Typical 4 link/wishbone/anti-roll bar combo with a Dart big block up front, lemons headers, and we are doing a 3.5 inch exhaust. Used our chevelle k brace system and tweaked it for the back half style chassis.

I checked out your build thread Greg, nice car! I like the rendering, especially the black bumpers. Are those Boze stingers? I have the same rims going on my own car.

Cool stuff

Thanks, still a work in progress. the wheels are actually Boze Hi Octane's. but I may end up with something else that Frank @ prodigy recommended to me. but it will look similar.

Two questions, what size tube are you using on the outer tubes and how much would you want for a set of the slotted tabs?
