Type 1 Chassis

Standard Locost 7 chassis using 19CHS, 19SHS and 25SHS tubing.
This is the chassis design described in the book, "Build Your Own
Sports Car for Under 250 Pounds - and Race It".
Type 2 Chassis

Type 1 chassis but with all tubing 25SHS and some additional
strengthening members added. This is typical of most Clubman
car chassis designs intended for 4 cylinder engines.
Type 3 Chassis

Type 2 chassis but with some tubing replaced with 50x25RHS in
higher load areas. This is a Clubman chassis design for 6 and 8
cylinder engines.
Type 4 Chassis

Type 2 chassis but with a revised rear structure to mount a
Mazda MX-5 rear sub-frame. In practice the MX-5 rear sub-frame
is a practical proposition but it should be permanently welded
into place.
Type 5 Chassis

Type 4 chassis but with a revised front structure to mount
Mazda MX-5 front wishbones. The changes caused a substantial
reduction in torsional stiffness and the visual appearance of the
wishbones is poor.
Type 6 Chassis

Type 3 chassis but with a revised rear structure to mount a
Mazda MX-5 rear sub-frame. In practice the MX-5 rear sub-frame
is a practical proposition but it should be permanently welded
into place.
