wow! I just finished my 7 days and your done with it and it's sold
would have taken me a month to braze that, hell it takes me 2 months to figure out how to build it
I love how you built the intake cooling system & made the roof & cage fit so fluid like, great work, you make it look so easy

Thanks folks! The winner of this chassis is the same guy who won DS#1!

I'll be building another one in the next couple months, but it'll look different. (I dont like to build the same thing twice.)

Thanks!

Good idea, I'll make the next one feature waterproof boxes.

Hi,

I use a Miller 135 with .023 wire and Co2/Argon mix. Small wire + gas and infinite voltage and wire control gives nicer welding of small tube. I use 3/16 DOM hydraulic tube, and some 1/8 solid. A bender, dremel and maybe a grinder would help too.

Really amazing detail on this one. The custom cage is very clean and the light setup looks factory made. Wow! We should all aspire to this level of detail.

This is such a sweet chassis and i bet it gives some sportsman rigs a run for their money. Im glad that Squirrel got this chassis and finished it. You definitely found your creative outlet!!!! Do you think you will ever have time to build another one of a kind chassis?

I will be building another Wraith bolt-on chassis in the future. It'll be Dorkstar build #5... #4 is already planned and will commence in the next few months.

Thanks!
