Nice work there Matt,

I like the additional triangulation around U4 & U5 , also the way you have adapted the transmission tunnel for your gearbox.

Good luck with the rear suspension/diff cage area, it,ll be great to see it come together & on wheels .

cheers
andy

Thanks Andy

For those interested there's a bit more development on the 3d and a few dimensions up now.

Nice work there Matt

The extra lengths of steel ( BR8 & 9 ) look ideal for supporting the engine, its all coming together nicely,

cheers
