Drag race body mounting is not a complicated task, but should be done correctly to ensure the longevity of your composite body and best aerodynamic performance.
Bodies should be mounted security to the chassis with multiple mounting plates and support structures. A drag race body mounted correctly will not cave under extreme air pressure and will withstand forces distributed during tire shake.
In this video, Tim McAmis demonstrates the traditional method for mounting a composite drag race body as well as the non-destructive system used by the fabrication team at Tim McAmis Race Cars.
In an effort to produce the highest quality race cars available, TMRC developed a non-destructive system for mounting a body which has proven to be successful for well over 10 years. Using this process requires no drilling of holes or welding near the body which leaves a smooth, like-new finish on the gelcoat when a body is mounted and ready for paint.
