The pictures need to be larger and from more angles to make an accurate assesment. From what I can see, it looks good, although, I noticed some of the floor tubes do not make junctions with other tubes (aka "dead tubes"). If you purposely placed those tubes there for seat mounts then thats OK, but don't expect those tubes to add much strength or rigidity to the chassis.

I don't consider myself a chassis design expert, but am an engineering student and have built a couple cages, none of which have been tested in a crash :D. The rear part of your chassis between the back fire wall and axle line looks a little busy and over built. I would suggest studying some of the proven designs and try anticipating where the major forces will applied and design accordingly, rather than placing tubes because they flow or look good there. Good Luck.
