Default Project Minimalist Tube frame build.

Going for somewhere close to 300 dry, complete minimalist build 151x15x2 track, rear axle drive, tube frame, Srv 540 fan engine spinning p85 clutches, arctic cat proclimb front suspension. Front swing arm will attach directly to driveshaft with 12+ inches of vertical travel. Modified 121 Extra-12 polaris rails with custom extensions.
Home made 11 inch poly front idlers and extended front arm. Engine will be a semi-stressed member adding chassis strength when bolted in.

Rear scissor will be external like RUSH to make room for rear chain drive.
track can be tensioned outside of chassis as front arm mounts directly to driveshaft. Being made in mild 3/4 .065 for now, with intent to go to 3/4 chromo .035 wall to reduce the weight by half while keeping the same strength if this turns out to work.
