Excellent, what a Alan said, are those 25x50 box?

Looking great all the same, kind of jealous of the progress. Maybe I need to get into the garage!

Hi Guys, the arms are 50x100 box with a 3mm wall, and those 16mm rosejoints are comp spec with a 98 tonne cross break strain - so they are pretty beefy too!! :) - the simple answer is no they didnt need to be, i just decided to go a little mental!!

I was concerned they would look wrong but they work well - if i break these im dead anyway!!

Looking very cool Rich, although the 1 week of summer we're going to get will be over by the time you finish it

Yeah Damper tech helped out when the shock makers refused to help me with the springs - will probably need to get new springs due to the weight change so will need to borrow the corner scales again ;D

Nice, thanks.

Thinking about your turbo, might be worth considering a manifold for a GT28 etc for when you get bored with the stock one

ha ha thats a beast of a turbo, looks like im going to offset the turbo and mount it just above the gearbox (there is a handy mounting lug I can use) that way i can run the exhaust pipework from one side and it should fit better. ill mock it up and see how it looks (and then post some pics here)
