Looks very nice. I like the mid engine idea. Your jack stands need more triangulation. :flipoff2:

my understanding is that a mid-engine means the engine is mounted next to or behind the driver, and the tranny is still behind that. a rear engine would be if the engine is next to or behind the driver, and the tranny is in front of the engine....

which is yours? (is my terminology correct?)

I believe a rear engine vehicle has the engine behind the rear axle and a mid engine vehicle has the engine in front of the rear axle. Both are behind the driver.

Looks like a good start, will it be a two or single seater? A picture from the front of the frame would be appreciated. Looks like with the lower frame work that it's a two seater.

Thanks

Looks to be a nice build up! Keep the pictures coming. Where in central Ca are you at? Los Banos

Why are you going midship? Better visibility, Better balance, High pinion out of low pinion strange nodular therd members that i already have, and it's something i have not done yet:)

which is yours? (is my terminology correct?) You lost me, but mid engine is having the power plant behind or next to the driver and the tranny/ t-case under or next to the driver..
