Correl, first time of reading this post and I'm really impressed so far, refreshing to see something really different. Nice work.

Cheers

Rich

Thats a tight fit

Where are you going to route that exhaust? straight out of the nose cone

Its going to be interesting seeing how you overcome all the problems you are going to encounter.

You must like a good challenge, good luck and keep the pics coming

Now's a good time to think about the steering downlink as that's going to be tough, this is how I did mine which may give you an idea.

You're doing well...I was at mine over 3 years!!

Cheers

Its certainly an interesting project and you're getting on exceptionally well with it but I do wonder what its going to handle like. I mean mine's gonna have 200KGs of Cosworth V6 in it but at least I can get it behind the front axle line, you've got a super light chassis with five eighths of sod all at the rear and a fairly heavy lump of metal in front of the front axle line. weight distribution is going to be ................................different:confused : ?

Wow Correl

You,re certainly not hanging about are you ????

Looking good, tho it must be a heck of a challenge to get everything in place & workable without any guides to point you in the right direction.

keep the pics coming

cheers

getting the engine mounts done, then looking at the steering rack, once the rack is in place I can put in steering column and pedal box position's.

There's nothing like building something completely for your self is there, feels good and makes you feel confident
