gussets, really unnecessary with that design, but way cool and it never hurts to overbuild.

And I always use wd40 and scotch bright (the red pads), then finish off with tranny fluid. I dont know if i'd do the tranny fluid if you're planning on painting it, i always did it on the race trucks like that cause we didnt paint any of the tubing.

Yup. Gussets. Way overkill (and way cool) but when it comes to my safety/life nothing is too overkill.

Yea it's a saddle gusset. It's actually a "Joes Tube Gusset" we used them on Teal Brute and I liked them so much I bought a bunch... I'll find a link later..
