The double hinged Dynamic frame appears to be something that was "racer created" to lengthen the chassis to fit that particular body, rather than an item that was factory designed. I question its strength.

I think the open ended tongue/axle carrier, that barely reached the tongue screw, is more of an issue, than the double hinge.

Back in the day, guys mused about running double and triple tongues.

I think the car is pretty cool in that it has the K & B Hellcat in it.

I always thought they had a racy look to them.

It could be that he had the same issue with the Dynamics tongues that I had back in the '60s when I used a lot

of Dynamics chassis. The cast "eye" that the guide flag pivots in breaks off very easily. I went through many

tongues on each chassis. I never considered trying to fix them. They weren't that expensive. But now that

the parts are getting a little harder to find, repair might be a necessity.
