what do you mean by V2? Diamond replaced the first one you had with a newer/revised model?

Please let me know as I am looking for one, I talked to Diamond around in the Summer and told them that I would get one by the end of the year of beginning of 2015. Its almost about time to order mine...


Thanks Dan.

Thanks Dan.
It should be here mid next week. No it is not replacing what they currently make. This one is what we are calling "drag race" ONLY.

When light is not light enough. I requested lighter. It is around 4/5lbs lighter. Info and pics will be up soon.

so what's missing on the V2? or is it purely material differences with all the same mounting points in tact?

I'll get some pics up later.

Its exactly the same with all the OEM options. Just smaller / thinner materials. Final weight is 3lbs lighter then the standard unit.

Because a light weight subframe was not light weight enough.

I spoke to diamond a few weeks ago and requested if he would mind building me a lighter weight subframe then the already light weight one. So Dan went into some thinking and came up with what we are calling a "drag" version of the subframe. Please keep in mind. This is for minimal street use and mainly drag racing only. It is NOT for full on track cars that make turns. If your looking for one that can cover every type of racing then get the standard subframe. It is 3lbs lighter then the current one. My standard was 16.3 and the new drag version is 13.3. I am sure he could have gone even lighter yet but this is as light as he wants to go and feels comfortable with his name on it. Basically it is exactly the same piece as the standard version but it uses smaller diameter tubing and thinner wall thickness. Some may call me crazy but hey. The opportunity came up and I took it. Here are some pics

Anyone know if they're still making these tubular subframes and did you take any pics of the drag version installed in the car? I know it's been a little more than a year since anything else has been said on this thread but I figured it was worth the try haha.
