just wondering from any of the mebourne boys if i make the cuda frame too the edge specs will i be able too race at torc in kyneton because in the regs some of the structural requirements are asking for more than what edge has used eg" wall thickness and od of pipe.
cheers dylan

hey dylan, the best way to do it is upgrade the tubing to the cams specifications, that way you cant get knocked back, nothing worse than building a killer buggy and get told your wall thickness is .2 under regs.
tig welding a whole chassis? see you on the track in about 4 years,lol
this topic has come up before, that would look hot but it takes a long time to do and not really needed but at the end of the day its your buggy, your money and your decision.
hey, keep us updated on your progress with some pics and info
is this your first buggy build?

hey Dylan! tube thickness doesn't matter as much, just go of what the plans say and all's good! with your frame just make sure you have all your added bracing such as cross bars ect and none of the role cage over 500mm without bracing.
here are the regs if you need any further info.

good luck with the rest of the build, and hope to see you out on the track soon!

Nah Im Perth, currently looking into getting my truck license so I can take our cars interstate a lot easier, looking at maybe doing an AORC or 2 next year with the old mans car and maybe even mine if I can find some money. If youve got any questions about the racing itself I can probably help you out, Ive done a few seasons as a driver, but if its cams cuda related you should get in touch with jet and check out his thread

So its not CDS your using?
42NB pipe?
38mm CDS would have cost you more than $550.00.

Hey Tony,
I've got an 07cbr1000rr just wondering if it will be suited for a barracuda to cams specs. I was thinkn of working it to the shitta(crank,rods,pistons etc full performance rebuild), but should I just sell it and go for sumtin bigger and do it too that?

Guys i am either gonna run a bussa or my current cbr1000rr, just wondering weather or not I have to extend the frame 100mm to fit either of these bad boys in? Thanks

Its really not worth rebuilding the CBR1000 as it will always be an engine with very little low end torque.
It you spent a lot of money on boring it out & different cam grinds you may gain more low end torque but sacrifice top end power.
Bottom line you will spend a lot of money & end up with an engine more expensive than a Busa & still not up to the strength, power & torque of a Busa.
And a lot of pissing around to get it to that stage.
Buy a low K 08' or 09' Busa & bolt it straight in.

A Busa fits into the standard engine area.
But............For a CAMS buggy you do need some extra length, (wheelbase) to make it handle woops better.
So an extra 100mm in the engine area & another 100mm in the driver area will make it easier to fit components & easier to work on.

For a CAMS cuda you need to run 15" rims.
So you would use this part: PART NUMBER:BCBRAKE 15
