Please don't use pipe for structural fabrication. Pipe 'in general terms' is used for materials transfer, either gas or liquid. It is manufactured for bursting strength, not compression/tension loads like tubing. The metalurgy is vastly different between the two. That is why the governing bodies for all competitive racing specify tubing!
