        Great video. Brakes is one of my next steps if I ever have time. I laughed when I saw you try to use self tapping screw? Well at least you discovered that was a bad idea. When I got my kit it was half built and somebody thought those screws were a good idea The thing was literally falling apart. But, taped in to the frame isn't great either in my opinion. I think I mentioned riv-nuts before. Go get some, way better.

          I think you may have me sold on the riv-nuts. Do you notch the holes to prevent them from turning?

            No need to notch but I get the riv-nuts with grippy sides to help a bit. I have never had one turn yet. My issue is getting them in perfectly straight in awkward places.

                        Hey all, Tesla rear suspension is now in place.

                          Tough step forward. Congrats. Waiting for your rear frame solutions on how to weld it all together.
                          Are you planning on calculations for the rear frame part? If yes what software are you using?
                          See you have a 3d model of an Attack frame, can you share it? Watching this build I have a strong will to make another Attack all electric )))

                            I think once I have the rear subframe mounted to the K1 frame...that will be a big milestone.

                            My plan is to build a support structure (probably out of wood) to get the Tesla subframe and suspension positioned exactly where I want it with respect to the K1 frame. I will then take some careful measurements and start designing the steel support structure in CAD. I use SolidWorks for the software. Right now I only have the rear of the K1 frame modeled.

                            Seeing your thread on your build, you would do an amazing job on an electric Attack!

ID:	36151I have made a first pass at a frame design to accommodate the Tesla subframe. Suggestions and feedback are welcome.

                                Nice work! I don't know much about frame design so can't comment other than it looks good.
