Nah, it'll stay the way it is. The jeeps wheels go all the way to the wheel tubs, but my racecar would hit the bumper on the wheel tubs. So the racecar actually sits further back than the jeep does.

It's not my design. I did research on it and that's how the majority of welding websites did it. You want rounded edges to eliminate stress points. The holes are to allow plug welds for extra...
