Here is the CAD model, we found out Tuesday we have 1-1/2 weeks to design and build rather than 8 (yikes!).
They moved our District race up by 6 weeks on us, gave us a very late notice (better than week of the race I guess).

I have to add a few more bolts in the CAD model, but the basics are outlined in the following pics (see below).

We are also adding some seat side-bolster padding, and have a '85 Celica passenger-front seat-shoulder belt assy in the garage now (paid $9 for it)... and the roll-bar/push-bar.
I think this will be one of the most controllabel and safest cars yet from what I've seen of Cubmobiles...

I hope.

Too bad we are short on time this year... I think it would be extra-cool to add a foot operated brake. This would use essentially the brake we have but add a foot pedal with a linkage to reverse the pedal travel to work the brake correctly.... maybe after the District race (in a week) we could add it before Pack.
