It was a joint effort with a freind who manufactures fibreglass shells for drag cars.

 

It may be something we will look into producing if there is a market.

Love the fuel cell, but do you still need a barrier between driver and the rear of the car?

I like your hub swap. Whats the reason you've gone this route? Bigger bearings, kingpin angle or the simpler fitment for the strut?

Hopefully it wont be a issue, i could make a lid for it though to keep the scrutineers people happy.

Main reason was the increased distance from BJ to hub centre- should level wishbones and improve roll centre. Next reason was having camber adjustment at the upright rather than on the top mounts.

 

Bearings are the same. I'm yet to weigh the complete front assembly but it should be a little lighter too
