OK Sorry for the confusion, there are a few statements, that are simply typo's I believe. It is driveline hoops that need to be 1/4" by 1". And .120 wall thickness is what was meant not 2.0. So 1.75" X 1.20" tube would be more than adequate by our rule book. There is a bylaw proposal up for vote to accept 1.50" x1.20" as acceptable, to make rigs built to some of the other sanctioning groups rule specs, acceptable for our racing as well. Hope this helps. Remember, comon sence and the pursute of safety usually prevail

I suspect that the 2.0 is NOT a typo, but refers to 2.0 mm wall thickness. (change aimed at our northern folks, eh?)

So what you meant to say was 1.75" x .120" tube?

That would be 2mm/25.4=.078".

So .078" wall tube?

It's not for me to answer for Rob but........I don't think so Jay. I think I started this last year when it was discovered that my buggy didn't meet tech as it's 1 1/2" .120 wall construction. Rob bailed me out last year so I could race and is now bailing me out again as well as hopefully some others. I think the quote you're asking about was directed to the poster who originated this thread...
BTW Jay your Jeep would be a nice addition to compete in street and trail class.

Rob- check with Luke and see what you can do. Might be an explanation prior to votes can clear it up, otherwise you might be stuck with the wording as written if it passes.

Will pass this on to Dave Taylor as he's our new PNW Comp Chair and he submitted the proposals. Rob spoke with him on the phone and he did intend it to actually be .120.
