Default proper front uprights

I have got some nifty drawings for some nifty front uprights that along with some nifty wishbones may well be available very soon to fit the Roadster and other Sierra based kits as well as the earlier Ecort based numbers.
No prices as yet as the engineering type bod is still faffing about but they will come powder coated and wearing ali hubs....very trick very NOT ugly Sierra items oh and lighter

Please form an ordeley queue armed with as many creme eggs as you can stuff in yer pockets.

whats are the effects on the suspension geometry???
KPI? distance between mounting points, obviously scrub will be determined by tyre width and wheel offset but what wheel and tyre combination results in what scrub would be nice?

material?

sorry for the difficult questions but for me at least the answers are critical

tilly

Would these be a direct replacement for those of us who have already used sierra gear

Not heard back from engineering bod yet and as he has the drawings and I have a crap memory for numbers I don't know dimensions

They will be used on the new "beasts" yes "beasts" as there are 3 on the cards. 3 totally different to each other, 2 are not really new shapes but 1 is just mad, or is that me that's mad

These sound very interesting! would be good if they were direct replacements for the Sierra items though without the need to buy new wish bones.
The Sierra uprights weigh a ton, surley an easy way to save a bit of weight.
