There was a drawing that Chris Gibbs posted that should give you some idea as to how you might be able to use the BMW front hubs

Fabrun, nice work. I've drawn the chassis up a few times in a couple of different ways, but never had the time to finish any of them!
I've used Simulation (was COSMOS) loads as I have to use it at work. The main problem I have is knowing what to put into the FEA and then working out what its telling you. All you can really do is put in a known load and compare different designs for stiffness/strength.
I'd love to known how you got your springs to look so good. I hate drawing springs!

Hi Fabrun.

All looks very clever to me....I just dont do compootuz

Did however notice an error..
Chassis plate CP7 on the right hand side,by the roll bar,
It's the wrong way around. I'm not trying to be a smart arse, Just thought I would mention it
