At the affordable end of the racing world, the space frame chassis is a cost effective design reality, and if well designed, will provide the driver with a very strong safety cell. And it's economically repairable.

safety is no accident
At the affordable end of the racing world, the space frame chassis is a cost effective design reality, and if fitted with a carbon-kevlar internal safety cell, will provide the driver with a very strong and safe environment.
The chrome-moly chassis features curved main rails for added lateral impact strength and a unique cross brace in the middle of the chassis for immense crush resistance and torsional strength. Zig-zag chassis tubes down each side are positioned to follow the line of the drivers body and create a lateral protection shield. The drivers heels are positioned behind the front axle line. Combine this with FIA Carbon-Dyolen side intrusion panels, nose crush-box, lower body protection skid rails and intrusion plate, foot and leg protection, a six-point safety harness, an isolated fuel tank, a jointed collapsible steering column, knee and head roll-over bars designed to comply with racing regulations for cars weighing up to 4 times as much, longitudinal over-head intrusion bars (or 'Henry' bars) that help protect the drivers head and ‘flip-up’ to aid driver extraction, and a rear and lateral quick-release head restraint enclosure.
It all adds up to built in safety never before seen
at the affordable end of motor racing.
