tubing....

I am seriously thinking about tubing the front of my Tracker. Me and the kid have BOTH wrecked it once. Might as well peel away all the sheetmetal forward of the firewall and replace it with tube...

Thumbs up

Hey Jim,
Need any help? I would love to get my hands dirty again. Might make a fun weekend up there at the north pole.

I'm still waiting on some tubing. I'm getting the radiator, and support in it tomorrow. Fixing my winch wires I pulled out, and jacking the firewall back up to where it's supposed to be. Then I have to practice some slow idle wheelies on the dirtbike.

No surprise that you beat the dogcrap out of that thing. You ever toy with the idea of coils under that? What is your wheelbase hub to hub on that? Joe comes out in just a few days, and seeing these pics put the itch in me bad, to mangle my stuff something fierce. I will post pictures of the build up in a few weeks, after the new year is when i start. Im barfing out the sammi engine with the pony carb (its been a gem no lie) and shoeing in the 16v with a slushbox auto for the xO cage, but i would also like to lengthen my wheelbase even more. I dont think i can get that done though, i have to put the toy axles under Heidi's, and I think she is getting coils...
