i would never go with anything thicker than 1/4" on a frame, never ever.
the thicker material you use the more it weights, and that's something to think about. thicker dont allways mean stronger.

i recommend a one peice slip because when locked up it will push tranny and motor forward causing the throttle cable to pull and vroom it goes. almost killed me

motor mount bolts are shit and this car will crack infront of raer arches and on front crossmember around motor mount first
