Default MX5 Chassis differences

I have noticed Talon are doing flat pack chassis kits, I was set on ordering and cutting my own box section however this seems a bit of an easier route for not a lot more money.
I have a pdf file of the old Saturn plans showing their version of an mx5 based chassis.
Is there much difference between the talons chassis and the Saturn plans chassis?
For example if I did decide to cut my own to Saturn's plans could I then use talons diff cover, wish bones etc?
Or if I did get a talon flat pack could I then use the Saturn plans for wish bones etc?
Cheers Dean

have a look on roadster buiders at mine and you will see, user name on there is hizzi, i also have a thread on here but not as up to date
i bought phils flatpack and welded myself it went together well, i also have his wishbones and diff. front wishbones are worth buying from him, rears are nothing special but at the price not worth the hassle, rear diff case and mount is a really good solution, there is lots about the saturn design breaking the alloy wings off

Thanks for the replies, for the little extra I think it will be worth my while buying a talon flat pack kit also having a one stop shop for the bits for that chassis design seems to make things easier.


Will definitely check out your build Richard on the roadsters forum.
