Why not incorporate the OEM mounts into your chassis some how ?
I don't want the deflection of the stock mounts for a car intended for race duty primarily.
It's time I update this thread, normally i'm on top of my build threads but I spend so much time thinking with this project that I don't think to pick up the camera and snap some pics.
Progress has been happening albeit at a much slower pace than I'd like.
The fabrication of the headers is all but done now, i'm very happy with them
I've got my coast fab racing muffler ready to go on - just needed to get the rear axle area setup so that we could determine where to direct the exhaust away from.
Got my seat mounted so I can work on the steering & pedal cluster - picked up seat mount brackets from another forum member here
holy cow sitting in that seat makes me want to race something now that the weather is getting nice, those parking lot cones are calling my name!
I've spent the last few days working on the rear suspension. I"m happy with how it's turned out - with with the lower H-beam and upper camber arm to provide better shock room than the more common miata setup- I don't expect i'll have any issues but we'll see
I had some flat mounts laser cut that i'm really liking - the fit snug around 1x1 square tube and let me pretty easily get adjustment in mounting locations. I used them here to allow toe adjustment as well as camber curve adjustment on the upper mounting location
My fabricator convinced me to go inboard on my front suspension so I had to design around that change. I had some plates cut for that as well and now I need to get back to fabricating the front control arms to get all of that in place.
