The Kinetik Trick Truck/Trophy Truck chassis is based on 2-inch-diameter 4130-chromoly tubing that's been TIG welded. Critical tubing joints get a second TIG pass to add even more strength. The truck was built from the ground up from mastered blueprints and is available to customers as a complete turnkey race truck or as a bare chassis for a team to start with. The suspension and chassis were computer-designed, and the laser-cut, laser-notched, CNC-bent tubing was assembled and welded on a heavy, rigid fixture table. By contrast, most of the off-road racing field, trucks and buggies, are built by hand, one by one. Precision tools are used in race vehicle fabrication, but it's been a rare happening in the off-road racing world to build a complete vehicle in a computer before getting out the fabrication tools.
