Bummer wondered why I hadn't had any replies from emails waiting for diff mount.

Hope he gets well soon and gets back to firing on all cylinders

My flat pack arrived this morning, I know he won't see it but thanks Phil. Now I can get on with welding and hopefully Phil will be back to firing on all cyclinders quickly.

I'm hopefully going to be able to get them laid out tonight to check, if not defiantly tomorrow, does anyone have a list for the TMXR chassis or is it a matter of looking through the book?

As for the wishbones 1 day I decide 100% I'm going to buy them, the next I decide I'm going to make them. The main reason is the 300 price tag from Talon and also I don't know when he is going to be back on it. But then on the otherhand with all the jigs that are needed maybe worth the 300 and the wait.

If I remember right they are marked up as per book other than the modified bits transmission tunnel diff cage but it's quite easy once laid out.

As for wishbones they are worth the wait Richard H will vouch for them

yes phils wishbones are good, especially the front ones, the rears are nothing too special but why mess about making the rears? the fronts he does have bends to correct some steering angle and lock issues and to be honest even measuring against mine already made you would never copy them. they also take standard mx5 bottom ball joint and i think a bmw top joint that matches tapers on the hubs

I will probably wait till he comes back online and will order them. Will probably order some other parts at the same time so I have them all.

Just come in from checking the Flatpacks and let just say I'm disappointed. There are a more than a couple of parts missing, including all the "U's" this is especially anoying as I can only tack the BR's as I have no upright bits. I am also missing some other bits, quite a few from the trannie tunnel. Also there was no diagrams so Even though I believe I worked out most of the parts not 100% sure. Below is the list of missing parts so if you can take a look and tell me if any of the parts are suppose to be missing.

Missing tubes:
U1, U2, U3, U4, U5, U6, U7, U8
SB2, SB3
TR8
RS10 x2
D12 x2
TT6 x2
TT7 x2
TT8
TT11
SW1, SW2, SW3

Extra Tubes unsure of position:
TT4a
TT5a x2

Tubes that seem to be cut to an incorrect length:
TT10
TT12


I think this is it all but as you can see there is more that alittle missing and was getting more and more pissed off as I found more and more missing.
