Seems to be the ATM Race frame.

It's not rust, it's time travel residue from travelling past the speed of light.

The AMT race frame was made for track use, not really for hitting big pot holes in the pineapple roads we have here! might be worth thinking about swapping it out for a road one if your not track using it all the time.

You'll be fine with the race frame as long as you have soft enough springs and dampers, make sure nothing is liable to bottom out and you're cautious of the roads you drive on.

Unfortunately this advice Kaison is not good. You cannot just put soft springs on, because they are inclined at between 30 -45 degrees. At 45 degrees you need to double the spring poundage to get the same effective spring rate. ie: if you want 450lbs effective springing up front you need 900lbs springs when they are acting at 45 degrees. If Shaun were to decrease the spring rates the coilover would bottom out more easily with the consequences that come with that. You get more coilover piston movement for less actual wheel movement, the ratio having been altered. The suspension will have less overall movement and be pretty hard as on a race car. Also there were threads ages back about the rear upper tiebar sustaining damage ( only on the race frame) and this was more to do with using it on the road, from what I can remember. Mininut knows much more about the AMT frame, but it is supposed to be for track and occasional road use.
