Is this construction legal?

The length of the joint (yellow-arrowed) is .250 inch.

Thanks in advance.

Yes, Haruki they are legal. I noted that the first time I saw them.

Can I buy one of those, Haruki? I don't even care if it's fast. It's so beautiful, I just want to hang it on the wall and look at it.

What wonderful and well thought out workmanship (as always). I like the addition of the main rail. I have had little success with torsion cars but this one looks worth a try. I like how that additional rail would dampen or eliminate the rear steer effect that most torsion cars have. Of course many builders have had great results with torsion cars, I'm just not one one of them.
