    That looks great.

    Is there a brace that stops the chassis flex in the rear of the car?
    Looks like there is one in the front.

    I got the 3mm chassis since DDM still had them in stock, no need to spend $$ for the 5mm milled one. I had to do some filing and countersink the holes more so that the screws would be flush. The wing mount is pretty good, The body and wing are are Elcon and the side pods that came with the kit look like Hormann copies. The side pods and wing I have are custom ones made by Triple A racing in the UK.

    The front end is identical, the rear is shortened by about 4". The rear shaft used looks the same size as the drive shaft used for the wheels. The rear brace is pretty crappy with the kit. There are a few ideas I have to make one.. just have to clean my engine up, mount it and then go from there.


    I'm pretty happy with the outcome so far and what to watch what I cut/drill.

    Just a teaser before I finish it off with decals. Still need to do more under the shell though.
