    I agree. Post more. Post more. This is what I live and breathe for.

    Hi all!
    Thanks for your comments...

    I'm still working on my plans, but
    occasionally, I realize something
    concrete ...


    Wishbone suspension (bottom):





    The platform will be metal ...




    A true beginning, in short:



    Have a nice WE...

    Hi everyone!
    Thanks for your comment...
    Thank you Ferrari Cobra for your tip is one of my bibles!
    To Modelmaker,I plan to purchase the TDR 1/8 GT40 MK1 Ford scratchbuilt, why not? units, but are they rubber or resin 1/8 GT40 MK1 Ford scratchbuilt, why not? ? Rick, are you there? This issue of tires is really a problem and I have no solution!


    Well,monocoque chassis ... For those who do not know
    that of a GT 40, it looks like this:



    Not so simple, is not it?
    Of course, making plans, I sensed that I was going to drool ... And I am not mistaken, far from it!
    It starts with the easy, central tunnel, decentered, who will spend his time in the cooling pipes:



    Then, the "bunker" AV, which will receive the axis of suspension:









    Most attention (!) Have detected the disappearance of the lights on the front for steering systems and brake hoses ... Error on the plans! 4 mm anyway.
    All parts are complex!



    Well, I'm here:





    Thanks for looking!

    Dan.
