Just like it says, I was wondering if anybody knew how many feet of tubing go into an F-Toy chassis? Thanks.

I've never measured, but it's a lot less than I thought when we did some rough calculations just eyeballing it.

Cool, I thought it was a pretty minimal looking cage design. The reason I ask is because I'd like to build an exo for my 4runner to look like an F-Toy. I really like the lines, and think it would be a cool idea. Has this possibly been done already?

Toyota exos usually run about 6 20' sticks.

Pretty sure I've heard that Hendrix buys in 40' sticks for a lot less waste. I'd guess 100+ feet, but if you're buying 20' sticks, you'd need 6 sticks.

Find pics of Camo's old truggy. Should give you an idea of what a good FToy-ish exo can look like.

One of the biggest benefits of an FToy is light weight.
You don't get that benefit with just a good looking exo!
