BIG!! Chassis For the Weed eater engine

Where would I get a chassis For a car that is about 2ft long a about a 1ft wide. I want to build my own car from the ground up it needs to be for a stadium truck. (This is the vehicle that I'm puttin the weed eater engine on)

Thanks Bob

why dont you fabricate one yourself to your exact specs? then you can put all your mounts where you want them.

Get one of those motorized cars that little kids ride in, and put your whacker engine in that. In a boat modeler I seen one where a guy put a five horse briggs in one. You can find them things at rummage sales cheap.

New Era Models makes a 1/5 or 1/4 scale stadium truck that is really sweet. My uncle's got the 4X4 monster truck version of the same truck, and that thing rocks! Don't know if that is what you are after or not, since they include a 55cc engine and you said you already have one. They also run between $1800 and $3900... ouch! If you've seen Ocean's Eleven, they look pretty much like the one racing in that movie. Might even be the same one.

Hey, I built a car around a weedeater motor a few years back.
For the chassis and suspension arms I used sch 80 PVC pipe!
The chassis pan was made from a street sign.
The front susp was OK, but the rear needed more thought.
I was trying not to spend too much tho.

sch80 pvc is incredibly tuff stiff stuff and makes for a cool looking vehicle when u paint it!
