He is looking at doing to chassis kit that would take the sports 2000 bodywork, that uses as much as the haynes chassis bits as possible, wishbones, laser cut plates etc. Mainly for the track, but could be set up for the road too

Let me know what you guys think, and maybe if theres enough interest it might push things along

Would it not be better to adapt the sports 2000 style bodyto the roadster chassis that way it would be a retro fit for someone who already has a chassis like Tiger have done. A few revisions to the sport 2000 body as it stands would be needed to clear the IVA. I could be very tempted by that idea and something different and thus not directly in competition with others.

Think they were looking at more track oriented, the haynes is not exactly a track weapon. BUT i'll see what he says about adapting the body, suppose it depends on the amount of work involved in the fibreglass

Right, the reason he cant adapt the bodywork is that its designed for the engine to be at the back with a transaxle. Donor car for engine would be audi/vw/skoda 1.8T. Using roadster suspension etc

The back panel has even been made so you can leave the top rear chassis tube in too...

Ben is there enough room under the front body of the 2000 to fit the engine and if so is it possible for them to make a bracket kit to adapt the 2000 body instead of a whole new chassis to plonk it on the top.

I realise its a race car body but what a road car !
