Note, alloy chassis was used simply because of the 1450gr weight rule. I still had to add many blocks of lead.

Sweet, I'll be looking forward to them. I hope they are at least 7075 and thick in the right areas. The best ones I've used were the Square ones. But they don't make them anymore. They needed slight modding to get the double cardans to work. But they were still robust.
