The angle on the front lower area of the chassis is what i finally did after 3 revisions of the chassis I built for my sporty. Chassis is looking good though.

Thanks guys.
@kinggee Trial and error!!! ;) but then again, now all chassis are going to look the same... lol

Santa came early this year with some parts..
Now i hope to receive my tubes from Chris next week so i can mount everything..
And still waiting for my underdrive... :(

Just did a first link mock up.. adjusted the design a bit so the front liks will be a bit longer and the rear links will be a bit shorter.. Also re-did the holes for the rear shocks..
I used some 9cm shock mockups..

let me know what you guys think...

Looks pretty good. I didn't imagine you'd run the rear uppers below the link plate like that. The length of the links look good, but I personally think you'll enjoy a bit more vertical link separation at the rear axle. It will help dial a bit more anti squat in the rear, which should help drive the front end down.

But in th end, beat to just drive it first looks fantastic.

I want to make it, so you can place the links on the upper en under side..
Thanks for the tip..

That's what I told Douwe too. Let's wait and see if he can make that plate smile.

Just tested the weightbias for fun..
No front internals (rear complete), no knuckles, just only the housing..
Think it has a nice bias at the moment



Dont mind the laundry in the back... Even i have to do it (wife has a full-time job...)

Looking good so far. What revision is that chassis at?
What's the wheelbase coming out at?
And what's the front link length? (research for my new build)

Thanks man....

Made some adjustments in the drawings.. Tomi will test that chassis..
Then it is really time to bend some links.. now its only time for straight ones.
I'm getting more confident that it will work out well..
Today I got the shocks of my SA and used then on the rear of the new chassis.
It has also a name from now on...

SuDu one. Suomi Dutch one.

I spy some added vertical seperation

The progress is coming along nicely. Curious, are the rear uppers and lowers the same length?

Lookin purty damn cool guys. Lovin the looks of things so far. Keep up the good work. We need a hard hitting sporty chassis to fill the void.

Not measured them yet..
But yes i used your tip .. same plate as before but then mounted above.. also easier for clocking the pumpkin more upwards..

Today no progress... Themeparkday with wife and daughter

Ssshhh...

Douwe hasn't seen this yet. I changed his design a little. I'm not sure this is his style, though.
