1/4 scale isn't twice the size of a 1/5 scale... double the size would be 1/2.5 scale.

What exactly are you trying to build?

If you're trying to build a 1/2 scale car you're going to need some serious fabrication skills, that's a huge car.

A double size 5b would have a wheelbase of 64 inches. That is longer than a Quarter Midget race car, also bigger than a typical gocart. I'm not sure you realize how big this is.

Forgive me but this is sounding like a kids pipe dream at this point.

Twice the size of a 1/5th scale is 1/2.5 scale, or just a bit smaller than half the size of a real car.

I am curious to hear his response. That is a monster to double a 5B. That car is already big enough.
