I went wider on this car. For lots of reasons but one of the main reasons was to make the rear geometry really good on the triangulation. The chassis is 60" wide at the door bar. It tapers from the rocker out to give elbow room etc. It's roomy but it fills up as we all know.

Gas tank is 22 gallons and the plan is to use that for the short course races and then add a jeepspeed style tank to the rear for longer races. Should get 45 minutes out of a 22 gallon tank.
