Rebuilding a Salvage Lamborghini Frame Using Scrap Aluminum Saved Us Over $3000

4 410
The frame bracket for this Salvage Lamborghini Gallardo LP560 costs over $3,000 new. I rebuilt one using a piece of scrap aluminum for around $20.

they intentionally put that crease in that bar at the factory so in case of an accident it will bend there

why is he original so expensive? because the i is a extruded profile from aluminium 3003, 6061, 6082, AZ31 , 1050 or a alloy special developed for this car. you cant exchange that with a piece of aluminium from the homecenter. now you can drive with this car 55 mph but never put it on the racetrack or annother accident. if this piece fails and someone dies they will ask who fixed it!

The bend in the straight piece on the other side is there as a folding point. In case of an accident engineers designed it to fold at the bend rather than brake from the weld and possibly impale into the car. Almost every part of a car has crease points where they are designed to bend in case of an accident to avoid things like...a hood being pushed in through the windshield like it used to happen back in the day

So, first time I ever saw 'samcrac', but gotta say it's cool he's appearing on VTs channel and letting VT post the work.
Big fan of Goonzquad, but can't say I ever saw Billy or 'other brother' ever wearing a VTuned shirt in any video.
Props to Samcrac. 👍

VT, tell Goonzquad the next time you work on one of their cars, you want a free sponsorship in return. Having them both wear VTuned gear for a full video and promote your channel to 1.5M subs (like they do with watches) who give you a nice bump in viewers. And it'd cost them nothing. 👍👍

What I enjoy personally is that unlike Goonzsquad he doesn't flap his arms around all over the place and talk like some sort of gangster when presenting his work load, vTuned has the best presentation and format of all the shows and his work ethics (standards) are second to none. Keep the movies coming, love it.

I LOVE seeing someone who has fabrication skills and can make and or repair an expensive part. Just about any five year old can unbolt a part and slap on a new one that they bought but it takes brains and skill to repair the old one. Apparently there are a number of guys who comment here who like spending their hard earned $$$ on expensive replacement parts.

I just Googled rectangular aluminum tubing and there are two grades, 6060 and 6061-T6 extruded. In the 6060 there are three wall thicknesses, 2, 3 or 4 mm. In the 6061-T6 there are five thicknesses, 0.125, .25, 0.1875, .375 and 0.65. The 6061 T6 is not available in 2, 3. or 4 mm so all one would need to do is take your micrometer and measure the wall thickness and he will know which tubing to buy.

" looks dented"
Well it's ment to bend there in a collission, hopefully you don't get this in your head in a crash...🙄🙈
Hoonny Hoonny
Hoonny Hoonny - År siden
I think that dent might be there to controlled bending (or buckling) upon compressive loading onto the beam (head on collision). From the video, it looks like it’s meant to hold some level of loading and once it reaches the threshold, the beam will buckle into W shape. Also, by having 3 buckling points, it looks like it’s not meant to hold a lot of loading either possibly because of safety reasons.

The other side is "dented" because it was in an accident genius.. those arent dents that's called a bend... such a hack job... yea the body panels fit but you didnt show the part where you reamed out all the fender and headlight bolt holes to make up for the bent frame... HACK!

Jake Clauson
Jake Clauson - År siden
@vTuned garage I know it's not the main rail. That car would really fkd if it was. But it doesn't matter. It has front end damage, that one bar didnt take all the force of the impact. The force was spread out, that's why the right rail is kinked. Iv seen much lesser accident damage that appeared to only need a few blows of a slide hammer to get the radiator support back in place but in reality it had to be significantly pulled to fit the headlight properly. I know you had to ream it lol. It's the only way to get that car together looking nice

I think it's awesome that all you youtuber car guys work together, also how you both post a video so we get to see it from 2 or more perspectives. I've been a mechanic for almost 20 years but I don't get to work on supercars like its a hobby so I get my fix from watching you Goonzquad, and Samcarc. Keep on wrenching and I'll keep on watching.

What if you rebuild a car (which is more rare or like an exotic/super -car) but with the partnership of Goonzsquad, Although Goonzsquad and you can make a deal of buying a salvaged car together. Buying an expensive/rarer car than regular car but also at a much lower salvaged price from its original price which means the car would be more smashed than the normal state of cars you guys rebuild. Advantage would be that both proffessionals you and Goonzsquad will be together & get the skills tight for working with Goonzsquad :) This would be an epic & incredible partnership challenge. At times Vtuned will work on the car and other times Goonzsquad, just make a decision on what way the car fix should be decided :)
