The Formula Toyota chassis is the same basic design just size length and width for a Toyota frame. The mild steel version will be available soon, but I am still waiting for the dies to bend DOM.

thanks for the pics/info Mike. do you have any pics of anyone putting one of these on a toyota frame yet ?

I'm all ready to go if you need a testor, i've got mine stripped down to the bare frame and just the suspension/axles in place and hopefully putting the motor/tranny in this weekend.
