Engine, suspension, wheels…. Everything!

Postby ChrisDavies1 » Thu Dec 09, 2021 9:56 pm

The build starts this week, so I will be starting the hunt for everything I need. Im going transverse, so if you have anything that you think will be of interest, then please get in touch. It would be nice to try and purchase as many parts ‘in house’ wherever possible, in the hope I’d be helping out with the costs of your own cars etc.

Thank you in advance,
Chris

There are some parts that could be useful if only as a source of ideas on the "Standard Parts" topic in "Builders Garage"

In my view the three most important considerations with a transverse design are:
1.keeping the weight down
2.weight distribution
3.camber change

With a tranny 1 and 2 tend to work against each other.
Too much camber change especially at the rear can make a car more difficult to drive and have confidence in - especially for inexperienced drivers.

More generally I also like to see a high chassis stiffness, low centre of gravity, and lots of downforce without too much drag is also good.

HI Chris,

might be a good idea to post a list of what you think you need, this would make it nice and easy for you and us.
