You are going to love this video if you like Tim McAmis, because he has a ton of typical Tim McAmis one liners that will have you laughing. And this isn’t just a video telling you what grade of bolt to put into your chassis, but also proper lengths, shanks, etc. There is a lot going on in our typical race chassis and if you have the wrong bolts and nuts you are in danger of damaging the chassis, mounting points, and brackets. I have to say, there are several things he brings up in this video that I hadn’t thought about and should have.
Again, there is the levity you expect from Tim, but with a lot of really good information, visual examples, and reasons for each and every bit of knowledge he’s sharing. And it’s free, from one of the premier race chassis builders in the world, so you should pay attention and see how many things you’ve got wrong in your chassis right now so you can fix them before you have a real problem. Or, if you are getting ready to assemble your own ride then make sure you are using the right stuff from the get go.
And don’t think this info is just for drag racers. While Tim’s chassis are drag cars, the hardware specs and info given here are applicable to any chassis configuration.
