We ready for that preorder group buy now? That thing is looking good. So much cleaner.
I have most of the prices in now and awaiting 1 more but he is in isolation currently so that might be a delay. I can guesstimate it for now so hopefully by next week i would have some kind of price idea for allWe ready for that preorder group buy now? That thing is looking good. So much cleaner.
Shipping will be a bugger but i think its managable. Its going to be seperate as each location will be slightly different the way i have to ship these out due to its sizeI like what you have created. I’m in line for ordering one! That shipping cost to the USA though
In the end it’ll be worth every penny. Awesome design!!!
The new frame is already alof more rigid then the oem one is.Thank you for all of the fabrication factoring going into these new products. Great care and detail from you, as usual.
We are interested in your driving comparisons between the stock subframe, the 2-point subframe, and the 4-point subframe. It may be difficult to quantify the differences, unless you were to compare them on an autocross course, etc., but we look forward to hearing your impressions about road feel and chassis response.
Maybe you could measure torsional stiffness by jacking the car from one side, and measuring cowl flex. Thinking about our Spyder, this is the challenge we have. If you hit a hard bump, you can actually see the windshield frame shudder, until the car settles down again.
Didnt see you edit this reply .YEEEEAAAAAA
Is there going to be a bushing option? For us that we daily drive our cars to have a smoother ride
Thats correct. What i will likely do is have a list and work my way through it. So deposits mean added on a list till its next in line then full payment before proceeding and work my way through that list.Hey Bobby. Just clarifying, so to my understanding these will be made to order correct? No deadline just something thats available if someone wants it.
I have not decided on a deposit amount as of yet to secure the placement. will likely be a few hundread so the person wanting it is serious on the final order. working this one out is the hardest thing i have done and will do thus far so knowing whats right or best is tricky. a non refundable deposit i have been told to do before but not sure thats doable. if i made the frame and then they pull out then sure but I have time to work the how's and to's out.What’s the deposits amount? I didn’t see that in the first post, and/or when we should start sending the payment.
Maybe it’s on the list to do and I’m all ready ahead of that
So the race version is 2905 shipped? In order to use your crossmember, we have to have the race version because of the 4 point brace? Thats correct. I cannot compete with the costs of others on the market as a single crossmember item due to shipping costs alone so i likely wont make a normal one. With my version i can fit it in the box nicely with the frame so its more cost effective. Because it is shorter it can only be used with the 4 point brace but that was always my original design idea from straight away.
For people that are ready to purchase, are we still at least a few months out till a final revision is ready? No revisions left. This is now 100% complete. I have mocked up the 4 point brace for GSX guys and the tester will be confirming this fitment when he runs it on his gsx. What you see upto this point is how you will receive it. All you have to do is decide on a color and mounting pad material/rollstop material.
You are making custom compression arms as well? Yes i am. I kind of finished a while ago but the frame was my main concern so i put the arms aside to finish the frame. The comp arms and lower arms are being made.
With the multiple control arm mounting points you offer in the frame itself, how do the different slots affect the geometry of the car? This is for roll center adjustment. Not all will use them but its there for those racers who wish to take advantage of the setup adjustments. Each one is 1/2" spaced and you got 1 lower and 2 higher (from the factory spot which is the 2nd hole up from the bottom! You can speed up turn in or slow it down to make the rear speed up. The compression arm frame mounting will eventually have this same adjustment
I'm sure this has all ben covered but I'm just wanting to clarify . Keep up the hard work. It might have been but its alwaysgood to re ask and re reply to have it logged again. Im always up for answering questions and helping as best as i can
Another newbie question. What what??? What does this mean or relate to?? I dont get this one
