this shaping up to be legendary. What alloy are you using for the chassis? nice work!

It's all 6061T6

Quite strong and easy to work with...

T6 is heat treated for better strength. If you weld that, you'll loose a bit of its attributes in the welded area.

After the welding we temper the parts once for 2 hours at 210C.
That reduces the effects of the welds in the heat affected areas.
We usually reach results which are comparable with a T4 Temper and that luckily directly at the weld.
With good heat managment it doesn't influence the overall structure.

Pretty amazing stuff - looking forward to progress on this!
"Quality . . . you know what it is, yet you don't know what it is. But that's self-contradictory. But some things are better than others, that is, they have more quality. But when you try to say what the quality is, apart from the things that have it, it all goes poof! There's nothing to talk about. But if you can't say what Quality is, how do you know what it is, or how do you know that it even exists? If no one knows what it is, then for all practical purposes it doesn't exist at all. But for all practical purposes it really does exist."
